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.

I live in the Chapin area and frequent this restaurant weekly. I keep going back because the food is excellent, always piping hot, plentiful, well seasoned without being overly seasoned. With that being said ... it always takes at LEAST 10 minutes for the waitress to get around to serving my drink, and then I am lucky if she ever... More

Buffet style. Good veggies, my favorite. Good meat. Didn't have room for dessert. It looked good though.

While traveling, my wife and I happened on Farm Boy's. We'd been hankering for some good BBQ, and we definitely found it at this restaurant. The buffet allowed for many choices and it was all good, beginning with the veggies, and right straight through to the desserts. The atmosphere was warm and down-home friendly and when we're in the area... More

It was roughly 9 dollars for the lunch buffet and drink . I tried all the veggies first which included collards, stewed cabbage, green beans,... More

When in the mood for a good ole southern meal this is a great place! BBQ is always good and some of my other favorites are hash and rice, fried okra, and please get the banana pudding for dessert! Yum It's a small, local, classic BBQ restaurant environment with paper cups and plates but that's the way you do good... More

Hubby and I always look for local independent restaurants rather than chains when we're traveling and happened upon Farm Boy's BBQ in Chapin, SC for lunch on our way back to Wisconsin. We got there a little before noon and the parking lot was pretty full, as was the restaurant, and there were quite a few construction workers and other... More
