Great and fast...

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.

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!

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.

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?

We stopped here for lunch on our way to Hilton Head. The BBQ was great. My mother in law got the ribs and they were awesome. The sweet potato casserole was so good I did not want to share it. My youngest, who is a mac and cheese fanatic, enjoyed their mac and cheese. A must visit if in the... More
