Never too busy, very fast service

We came to Buckingham's today to celebrate my graduation. They were a reasonable amount of busy but since they aren't downtown there was NO wait at all even for a group of 11. The food is always good. My family really enjoyed the brisket sandwich and their pulled pork is great with or without... read more

There are many BBQ restaurants in Columbia, but I have to say that this one is the best. The owner is very very nice. All of the employees make you feel at home. The food is amazing and I never regret coming here.

All the meats are fixed well. Juicy. The baked beans are good with meat added for favor. The coleslaw has a bit of horseradich in it so there is a punch to it.

BBQ lovers differ in what "great" BBQ means. For my wife and I Buckingham's tops out list. Good and fast service with food that is consistent in quality.

Great ribs and BBQ chicken. We started with the heavily breaded onion rings and peppers...not too great, but good main courses. The sides we had that we liked were the sweet potato fries, baked beans, Mac and cheese, coleslaw and side salads. The service was good as well.

Best BBQ in town!! Must try Smoked turkey, pulled pork and Sloppy Buck. I guess there isn't a bad option. Try them all. Spicy sauce should be bottled. The best sauce I have ever tried.

Hand's down the best BBQ that Columbia has to offer. While some other joints in town may slightly edge over Buckingham's on the meat or the sides, no place delivers both to the degree that these guys do. The sides are really amazing. Go with the smoked sweet potato and the pit beans. The horseradish cole slaw is amazing as... More
