This is without a doubt the best Bar-b-q in Bluffton. Only problem is they cater to everything going on in Bluffton so their hours of operation are sketchy. Never had better bar-b-q anywhere but to go there for lunch or dinner is really tricky because they are only open when they are not catering an event and you're never quite... More

My husband and I love this place!! We have found out go to BBQ spot!!! The collard greens are bomb!!!! The ONLY negative I have is the coleslaw is oooook. Obviously this is a personal preference, I wouldn't get it again, which is somewhat disappointing due to the fact that coleslaw and pulled pork together is a great marriage.

I've been living in the Low Country almost 12 years now and Bluffton BBQ is hands down the BEST BBQ in Coastal So. Carolina if not the entire Southeast. Only down side? They are open short days/hours and run out of their best quickly so don't delay. Its worth the trip.

This place was a staple of ours when we lived in Bluffton and we loved it then. We had the chance over the weekend to revisit it and our thoughts have not changed in the least. Still the best BBQ around - and that includes those found all the way out in Savannah! My half-rack of ribs was absolutely delicious.... More

This place is cool and unpretentious, but the ribs are the best in the area. Last week was our third visit in 2 years. We had lunch on the outdoor terrace, half-rack, fries and coleslaw. The fries were outstanding, service quick and courteous. The place is small, but if you have to wait, tell yourself it's worth it.

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!
