We love BBQ. Our visit was not a success. The determination in that is we all agreed that we would not return. The meat was fine....good taste. The ribs were above average but were not served very warm. The sauce was not to our liking. We prefer a sweeter sauce. The fries were a huge disappointment.....how do you mess up... More

Had good Q, loved the Georgia style. Just service a little lacking. Fix your own drinks, clean your own table. Guess good ole southern feel. Would've given 5 stars had there been a waiter.

Thank you Trip advisor family. Your reviews were spot on. We had planned on going to an overcrowded seafood place in Hilton Head and said forget this! Bluffton. Was a nice found and the BBQ was great and the atmosphere was casual. It was all about the smokey pig. We will be back...perhaps in the next 72 hours.

While traveling we passed through Bluffton. We read some reviews and thought we'd give Bluffton BBQ a try for lunch. The place looked nice, small, clean, nice natural light, comfortable. It wasn't crowded at all, only one other table seated. Food: We had a BBQ plate with cole slaw and sweet potato casserole, half rack of ribs, greens, and mac-n-cheese.... More

My husband and I truly enjoyed the BBQ. We had the pulled pork and it was delicious. Ted , the owner actually came out and talked with us, making sure we were satisfied.

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 with or without sauce. The sauce...

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.
