Adorable decor, yummy meal, chipper staff and customers

Pork BBQ and their Brunswick Stew both terrific. Grilled chicken okay, hush puppies a little greasy, okra and fried squash yummy. Get up and walk around, read all the old newspaper clippings about the nearby mines. Admire the collection of drawings from kids who drew on their silverware wrapper and... read more

This is the best BBQ place bar none! I love the BBQ plate. The collards, green beans, corn fritters, pickled beets, baked beans, and field peas and snaps are awesome! Completely love the place even though it's in the middle of nowhere!

I can remember growing up in Sanford and my mom sending me to Bud's Barbeque to get barbeque for our Saturday night supper. I was raised on the best! Now I've moved away, but still come back to visit and go out to Bud's with my sister and her husband to get the same good ole southern cooking. I really... More

We visit Sanford once or twice a year and insist on at least one meal at Bud's. The very picture of a country rib joint. The ribs are not the typical vinegary southern style but rather rich and sweet. All of the sides great too. Don't look fancy , just plain good. No beer but carryout is just as good.

We go go Bud's several times a year and also enjoy the food. This time we went for lunch on Friday. As usual, there was a good crowd. Two of us had the bbq plate which is served with slaw, baked beans and hush puppies. You can substitute from a long list of sides. The bbq is as good as... More

Beat ribs in town, shrimp, BBQ, hush puppies are great. Chicken n dumplings like grandma made, and always fresh desserts. We eat at buds often and I haven't found anything that wasn't good.

Nothing like it - they actually go out back and pull the pork from the pig to plate it for you. It's take about 15 minutes to get it - but totally worth the wait.
