Good BBQ

Went there and had the bbq sandwich with sides of pintos and slaw. BBQ was excellent. Use the additional sauce on the table. The place was a bit hard to find but persistence paid off.

Excellent bbq. The sweet potato casserole was excellent. The casher was a bit indifferent. As she waited for our food to be prepared, she played with our forks slapping them on her head and leg. Yuck!

Some of the best pulled pork, BBQ Ribs and Chicken. Limited menu but it's all good. Family style seating on picnic tables and some regular sized tables as well.

This guy knows his way around a smoker! Although they are open when they feel like it, it is well worth it!! The atmosphere is really nice, and the outdoor space is welcoming. Don't miss the sweet potato casserole!

Decent barbecue; awful sauces. There are better barbecue venues in Bluffton, including my own back yard. Why eat there if you can do better yourself?

Bluffton bbq is actually a pretty good place to get bbq. Unfortunately the owners and staff treat patrons with an attitude of indifference. I have eaten there several times and am looking forward to a time when the staff is friendly towards their guests.

Pit Master Ted Huffman takes great care to properly smoke and trim the best lean, pulled pork in Bluffton or Hilton Head Island. Try the Brunswick Stew which is also supreme.

Stopped in after a round of golf nearby. Great southern BBQ atmosphere, outstanding BBQ sauce, and healthy portions. Will definitely go back!
