I am fussy about my BBQ and found absolutely sinful pulled pork here with the best sauce ever! And their sweet potatoe casserole, Mac and cheese and Brunswick stew awesome as well. Glad I will be able to get a quart of stew to take home. Do NOT, repeat, do NOT miss this if you are in Hilton Head...or even... More

I'm not one for BBQ but this place has convinced me that I do like BBQ, I'm just picky ;) This place has amazing food! The meat falls off the bone, that's how tender it is! For my out of state friends or family that visit us and are looking for a great BBQ place, we take them here every... More

Love the BBQ! Small restaurant but enjoyed the decor and the food even better. Also had their smoked turkey for pick-up for our Thanksgiving dinner this year which is also very good. We'll be back!

Bluffton BBQ is such a treat, economical and tasty food. Good ole Southern cooking at it's finest with wonderful side dishes...try to sweet potato casserole and their collards are perfect.

This is the best BBQ ever! The sweet potato casserole is to die for. We have had their food several time and it is always fabulous. And now we plan to make it a tradition to order the Boston Butt for New Years Eve dinner because it was a total hit again:) Just wished the sweet potatoes could be ordered... More

Meats are tender, moist, and flavorful...I love the babyback ribs, they're my favorite. The staff is also friendly to talk to which makes for a great dining atmosphere. If you're in the neighborhood...give 'em a try.

Ok...first of all most BBQ places can and will run out off BBQ. If not you should go to the next BBQ chain rest. This place is very odd...my guess the owner is doing this because he want to serve great food. He has some signs that most places would not have...straight to the point! Food was good and the...

Is that a good idea? Maybe. It seems to indicate that they cook just enough to have perfectly done BBQ - all fresh, all good. I had the pulled pork which was very tender and tasty. It wasn't the absolute best BBQ I've ever had, but very good. And price was very reasonable. The signs around the restaurant, which is... More

This is a really fun place for picnic table style BBQ cooked by a real Pit Master. Nothing fancy but good southern BBQ. Get there early if you want the chicken because they run out of food. The sweet potato casserole, which is both a side and a dessert is yummy! Cute that they have Moon Pies for dessert.

Interesting place on the Bluffton promenade. Love the signs around the place that admonish you not to ask for too much, they do run out on certain items. The price was good, the BBQ was good, not the best I have ever had, but great for Bluffton. I will go back - now that I know it is a fun,... More
