I had been by Southern Soul BBQ several times but had not been able to try it. On my recent visit to St Simon Island, I made it my mission to try this BBQ and when I finally did, I realized why the line was always out the door when I drove by. This is some of the best BBQ... More

This BBQ "joint" doesn't look like much from the outside, but wait until you taste the Pulled Pork! One of the best barbecues ever! The line never stops! There is seating outside and a few tables inside, so if it's crowded, you might want to take it "to go". It's one of those places that you order at the counter,... More

We've had BBQ all over the country at tailgates, at catered events, at restaurants proclaiming to be the "best." They were all sadly mistaken. Southern Soul is phenomenal. We have visited twice during our one week stay. This place stays busy, so if you're in a hurry or don't want a crowd, call your order in. I wish I could... More

Have you ever had a meal and all four people at the table said "that is the best BBQ we have had any where we have been? This is it! We each had a sandwich, fries and one other side. The collards were great the stew great and whatever else that I can't remember were good as well. The next... More

Wow! Really incredible! We went on a Monday at lunch when the special was The Marley (jerk chicken, pineapple and black beans in a burrito). Yum! My husband has the traditional pulled pork which was also incredible. The fried green beans were wonderful too! Definitely worth a stop or two or three when in the area! As my husband said,... More

Don't let your tongue slap your brains out. Their SS sandwich was outstanding. Nice variety of BBQ sauces (we liked the sweet and spicey). If you want to go for lunch, get there early as this place gets really busy. It's worth the wait. Nothing fancy, just plain ol' goooood.

Southern soul smashed it out of the park. What a place. I was in Georgia for 2 weeks and ate here 4 times and got a take-away once. Can't recommend highly enough. Please open up a franchise in London!

Southern Soul is the BEST BBQ ever. We were actually looking for a snack before dinner and ended up riding around for an hour looking for something to eat. We were at Highway 95 and were about to give up when we saw a police officer and asked him where do you eat good BBQ, he said follow me to... More

I watch what I eat which means I limit my red meats and poke in more veggies and fruit now. But oh my lands this Oklahoma/Texas bread girl loves great BBQ…not good but GREAT! …perfectly smoked (in other words delicious with or without sauce), never dried out but moist and easy to chew fall of the bone kind of cooking,...

Stopped by for dinner after a day at the beach with family and was pleasantly surprised to find that this place was awesome! The BBQ sandwich was delicious and I found it tough to decide on only one of their variety of sauces. They are all delicious.
