First ate at dukes BBQ in 1992 while stationed at MCAS Beaufort. 22 years later I still go out of my way to eat at Dukes BBQ every time I travel south. They have by far the best BBQ, fried chicken and fixins, I've eaten. Marlene and Jamie, the owners, welcome everyone and still recognize me today. I highly recommend... More

I'd like to commend Dukes on their stellar reputation. My wife and I enjoy eating out when we travel and TripAdvisor is how we decide where to go. Dukes Barbecue is set at the end of a shopping plaza and we would have never noticed/set foot in the place without the TA reviews it has received. Food was good, but... More

Sorry you were unhappy with your experience with Dukes. Our southern cooking isn't for everyone. We have several awards including, but not limited to, best BBQ and best buffet in Beaufort, and picked by Southern Living Magazine for having some of the best BBQ in the nation. We are a family owned business, not a national chain, and cook all... More

I love BBQ. I liked Duke's. The chicken is the better meat on the menu, but it is very salty. I assume it's brined. The sides are so-so. Didn't care for the cobbler. Staff is friendly.

I am glad you liked us but sorry you weren't satisfied with our cooking. We are a family owned business and we cook and prepare all of our food on site by family recipes, including our salads and fresh vegetables, handed down through several generations. The first Dukes opened in 1946 and we stayed consistent with our food preparation. Our... More

When you see the reviews, with no negative, none, you have to wonder. I was only disappointed with myself, after trying 1 of 10 items on the buffett, I had to give up, I sampled about 10% of the dishes, all were GREAT, and I was done, just could not eat more. You probably need 4-5 visits to enjoy the... More

I have been going to this place since I was about 13 years old. It was a different location but the same great food and people. My family goes atleast every other week. We would go two days a week but then we would all be 500 lbs. This is authentic, delicious southern food. The fried livers and barbecue are... More

Delicious. We ate there on vacation per suggestion by a local and we were all blown away. I really did not want to go to a buffet in a strip mall area for dinner. Boy, am I ever glad I did! Everything I ate was delicious from the pulled pork to the collard greens. YUM! The slaw was some of... More

Got take out from Dukes on one of the two days a week they are open. The pork is amazing, especially with the honey mustard sauce. Their cole slaw, hush puppies, and sweet tea are great. Skip the potato salad!

After reading stellar reviews of Dukes on Trip Advisor, my family and I decided to trek out to Beaufort to give their buffet a whirl. We were NOT disappointed! The barbeque was to die for! I don't know if I've ever had better fried chicken, pulled pork or spare-ribs. The pulled pork was moist with absolutely delicious flavor, the fried... More

My husband and I were here from Ohio for our son's Marine Graduation and my husband wanted some ribs. Unfortunately they were sold out of ribs (this is the reason for the 4 out of 5 rating) so we decided to try the buffet to have a variety of selections. Oh my goodness!!! Everything was delicious and between the two... More

We found this resturant on Trip Advisor which rated it number one for the area. We were not disappointed. Great BBQ with a wide varity of sides. The price was an added suprise ... less than $23 for two that included everything/
