It is very small and local restaurant. The pulled pork is tender and tasty. The sauce is perfect. Fresh cut French fries are not greasy at all. Yummy! The bbq Ribs is a must too.

I visited here recently when passing through Bluffton and the quality of food was brilliant - the pulled pork sandwich was one of the best I've ever had - loaded with lovely, chunky pulled pork and came with really nice fries as well as delicious mac and cheese. All washed down with fresh lemonade. Service was great too. Recommended!

BBQ can't be beat. Won the "Best of Bluffton" - family always wants to return when visiting. The 1/2 rack of ribs + 2 sides will fill you up. They don't sell alcohol but you can get bottled beer for a donation.

You cannot get better BBQ anywhere. Only open Wed-Sat and get there early before they run out. One-half rack with 2 sides will fill you up.

Food is sub-par to OK. The menu criticizes people who want a salad (with expletives) with NO atmosphere or AC!!! Pricey for what you are getting! Not a place to repeat.

My fiance and I stopped in to Bluffton BBQ for lunch and loved it! We both got a pulled pork sandwich served on thick cut buttered bread. He got mac n cheese and fries which looked hand cut and were delicious and I got the sweet potato casserole which was a little oily, but still good and cole slaw, which... More

We went to this restaurant on 4/10/14. Had to wait 1/2 hour for them to open weird hours. Best Ribs I have ever eaten. Wife had the Pulled Pork Sandwich which was excellent. Small little place but high in quality. Put it on your places to go.

The BBQ is different than what KC BBQ aficionados (pointing finger at self) love, but it wasn’t bad – just different. The coleslaw was another taste divergence – not sweet and tangy – not bad, again, just different. The pulled pork was tender but not as highly seasoned as I am used to. The portion was a comfortable lunch size.... More

Even though they have a weird schedule, when it is open the food is always great and the service is top notch. I've been here roughly a half dozen times and never have had a complaint. Everything from the ribs to pulled pork to the sides is always great and you always have a good time eating here.

I had to drive down to Hilton Head Island from Lawrenceville last Friday. I took the back way thru Augusta then all the small towns toward Hilton Head. I assumed I'd find a lot of little BBQ joint in one of those towns but not the case. I ended up on 278 ready to settle for a BBQ restaurant till... More
