I love BBQ and this was amazing! We took a family group of 9 and enjoyed every savory bite of delicious southern style BBQ. We talked with the cooks as they checked the smokers and meat and tried all of their signature sauces. The weather was beautiful and the tables were full. Service was stellar and you can be assured... More

I've eaten here before, but not for a long time. Out latest trip a couple of weeks ago, my friend had a hot dog and I had the ribs. Now I like my ribs dripping with sauce and I got dry rubbed ribs. Might have been my mistake in the ordering process. The ribs were good...hardly any fat; and had... More

Be prepared to be confused when you drive in to park, Brown shack with picnic tables and two giant smokers off to one side. Continue on...you will find great food, a clean place to eat with no bugs and some local scenery. The day we were there we met several of the Blue Angels Air crew who were in town... More

SSB lived up to all the positive reviews. Sauces distinctively southern and each was great with the pulled pork. Ribs had just the right smoked flavor. Our weekday evening visit was without a wait, line, or parking issue. A unique building and location. We're looking forward to return visits.

Southern Soul has great slow cooked pork barbecue, but what sets it apart for me is the Brisket plate, especially the generous portion of "burnt ends" that comes with your order. It is the best brisket I have ever eaten hands down. If you want a change of pace from seafood and steaks, try Southern Soul.

Different take on BBQ and love just hanging out at the bar. Great service. The locals love it while the tourists take pictures of it. It's not uncommon to see a pga pro eating there.

This is by far the best BBQ along the GA Coast! The Pork Sandwich is a great way to start here and the regular size is not a small portion. Parking can be a problem and lines can get long at lunch time, but the service is fast and friendly so you won't be in line too long! For Dinner,... More
