The Real Deal

The short review: They do BBQ and they do it right. Meat is good, prices are reasonable, the place has plenty of character. The long review: We've bought BBQ to go a few times and always been pleased. We've ordered both ribs and pulled pork. We haven't had any sides. The meat is good... read more

This is a quaint little place in old town area of Bluffton. It has been voted the best barbecue in town with just reason. Love the ribs and the atmosphere. There is also outside seating. I have never been disappointde in the food here. Very friendly place.

The food here never disappoints. The pork bbq is served on thick toast with a raw tomato. They give you the option of adding sauce to taste. We usually find that one sandwich can last for two lunches. The atmosphere is nothing special but the food makes up for it.

We stopped by on our way to the island for some carryout dinner and it was as delicious as we remembered. We picked up a whole chicken and pound of pulled pork and enjoyed them for a couple of days along with their Brunswick stew. The atmosphere is as charming as the food - unpretentious and honest!

One of the Best Places to have a GREAT Lunch. Place your order, take a table and just enjoy the taste of the ribs, pulled pork, chicken. Like I you will be a regular as this is truly the best BBQ as my wife is from NC and states the "BEST"!!!

Great pulled pork and baby back ribs. Just yummy. The sides were the best... Mac and cheese and baked beans were highlights. Great for a quick family dinner. They know who they are and do a fantastic job of it! Highly recommended! Very welcoming!

Great BBQ for the whole family. Everyone in our group found something they liked. Portions were huge and price was good for the amount of food you receive. Food came out hot, fast, and fresh.

Pork and chicken were great but the Brunswick Stew was the best ever. Tiny place but friendly and good value. Love the bucket sinks in the bathroom.

No trip into the Bluffton area is complete without a meal at this place. Only open Wednesday through Saturday. They only make a certain amount of product, so they will close early when they sell out. Best meal is lunch to avoid that problem. Don't let the appearance of the building fool you - the food is tops.
