Taste of Grandma's

Sgt. White's tastes like a bite out of your Grandmothers kitchen. A meat,two sides, a piece of corncake, and a drink for $7.99. My personal favorite would have to be fried pork chops, collard greens, and mac & cheese. The drink choice is sweet tea or lemonade, just as it should be in the South!

Delicious and generous plate of ribs with two great sides (from the steam table) and iced tea or lemonade is a lunch you cannot refuse. Grest deal for $7.99

It was average for BBQ. Mac n cheese was meh. Potatoes were good with gravy. Nothing spectacular. Lots of Southern cooking options, lots of butter and carbs. This however is an average BBQ spot in the South.

It's a dive. Yes, but it's supposed to be. If you're going to Sgt. White's, you're not going for a fine dining experience. You're going for authentic slow cooked BBQ and made from scratch side dishes. My daughter and I both had the fried pork chops. Wow. They gave me two, but I could only eat one. My wife had... More

On Boundary Street and in a nondescript one story building. You select items from the steam table and then carry to a table. You will be told what's on the steam table. We had great pulled pork, Summer Bean medley, Collard Greens. Very reasonable. We had a tasty meal. Sgt White was a Cook in the Marine Corps. Lunch only.

A real "low country dining experience". The food was hearty and tasty. I had the ribs, sweet yams and corn. Great corn bread. All for less than $20 for two including tip.

Food is great and the portions are enough. I love the old fashioned way that Sgt. White cooks the food. I believe this is what gives the food it's unique taste along with his special recipes. Both will not disappoint.

My wife and I were driving from Charleston to Savannah and decided to take a quick look at Beaufort having never been there before. My wife spotted Sgt. White's and almost did not tell me because it looks like the kind of run down local place I love and she can pass by. She was feeling kindly so we stopped... More

We'd been looking forward to visiting Sgt Whites since first spotting it on trip advisor and reading all the great reviews. Looking for a place to get some authentic southern BBQ, we were not dissapointed! It's a really unassuming place, no frills but feels wonderfully homely. You can choose a meat and either two or three sides. The pulled pork... More

An unassuming place to look at, stuck in the corner of a strip mall parking lot. As you walk in, you are greeted by a woman at a steam table which holds numerous meat choices - barbecued, fried and baked (chicken, ribs, pulled pork and so on) and lots of sides. We chose pulled pork and BBQ side ribs in... More
