Good Road Food

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.

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

While on a Low Country road trip we were driving north toward Beaufort, getting ready for lunch, so checked Trip Advisor for references. Found Sgt. White's. This place is a real "find", having been on The Stern's selection of best road side diners in the USA, 4x. The owner, Sgt. Mike White, is a former Marine DI. Being a Vietnam... More

This is a little, special place on road into Beaufort, you go up to the server and choose what you want from what is before you. For lunch meat and one or two sides. I had chicken, collard greens, spicy corn, great mashed potatoe and great gravy with delicious corn bread and either lemonade or tea. My husbands green beans... More

Been by this place 100 times and finally stopped. Best bar b q I've had in the south. Had peppered corn, gumbo, collard sides and 2 ribs. Fantastic. Friendly place on top of it! Will be back

I asked my GPSr to find a bbq place and she headed me to SGT White's. Well done, GPSr! It doesn't look like much from the outside - good cammo, Sarge! The inside is full of military signs, most dealing with the USMC, of course. Serving, either for eating in or take out, is cafeteria style with paper plates and... More
