We were on our way to Hilton Head SC and needed some BBQ to fuel us. We found Fat Buddies using a map search, and I'm glad we did! The service was excellent, very fast and friendly. The BBQ was delish! I had the brisket, and my husband had the pulled pork. We also got fried okra and the bacon... More

This place wasn't very good. The brisket was tasteless and dry. The potato salad was awful. The chicken was decent and the sweet tea was good. You definitely DO NOT get what you pay for.

Very good barbecue and the fried pickles were some of the best we've had. Food came out a little slow but it was a Saturday night and we had a group of 8.
