Five Points Farm House

* Date opened: Sept. 13, 2018

* Owners: Cousins Curtis Wilson and Shawn Causby

* Location: The soul-food restaurant sits at 2697 Johnson Road in Chickamauga, which fans of country-style cooking may remember as former home of the Melon Patch. "We've been working really, really hard — changing the food and adding new things for the community," Wilson said.

* Old-school cookin': "Everything nowadays comes out of a can and it's processed and it's frozen. We try to stay away from that," said Wilson. "We try to go back to the way granny used to cook it." So far, Causby said the restaurant's most popular items have been its catfish po-boy, barbecue pork sandwich and smoked meatloaf.

* New-age flavors: To accommodate a wider range of tastes, the owners at Five Points Farm House have added more barbecue-style options, such as barbecue nachos and hickory-smoked wings. The new recipes come courtesy of Causby, a regular in the competitive barbecue circuit. "So a lot of the new seasons and new techniques they're using on barbecue, a lot of the new sauces, we're bringing in here," he said.

* Old-school service: "We're locally owned and you meet the owner every time you come in," said Wilson. "I make sure to go to every table."

* Hours: Wednesday-Saturday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Closed Monday-Tuesday.
