Great BBQ

Farm Boys is consistent. Great Buffet love the slaw with vinegar dressing. Fried chicken is good if you are not a BBQ fan. Choice of sauces. Hash is also good.

Just tried Farm Boy's BBQ in Chapin and thoroughly enjoyed my experience! We had 9 people in our party, and although they don't take reservations, it didn't faze the staff - or the other guests - one bit. I and my grandson arrived first and the staff went out of their way to make sure we could all sit together.... More

Clean bright dining room and friendly servers. Good bbq but miss the real pork skins. Always have great fresh collards. Only open Thursday to Saturday.

As newbies to SC, we're checking out as many BBQ spots as possible. This one we stumbled upon and decided to do carryout, which worked out well because the space is very much like a cafeteria; shared table seating, almost banquet style. Another reason I preferred carryout is because I DO NOT like buffets. Much to my chagrin, our to-go... More

Go very hungry! LOVE their fried chicken and BBQ! Since it is an all you can eat buffet, it is hard to resist all the excellent vegetables and sides, including desserts! I do a lot of take-out to restrain myself. lol

We were driving through SC and looking for good southern BBQ so we figured we would try having our GPS tell us what was on our route and thankfully she directed to this place. As we arrived we were a little worried as we didn't see any cars parked in front of the place. Luckily we drove around the back... More

In my experience, most BBQ buffet joints don't offer a lot of variety, and when they do, the quality of some items drop off. Happy to say....this is not the case with Farm Boy's! They offer loads of southern style veggies, meats, rice, bbq, pork chops, etc. I'm a big fan of the fried pork chops and hush puppies. I'm... More

Found this place while in Chapin for a funeral. I've stopped back in several times now. Veggies are ok, meat and slaw are really good.
