The food, served buffet style is typically found sitting in a pool of grease/fat. The atmosphere is trailer park gauche but you can really strap on the 'ol feedbag at a small price

This place serves some of the best South Carolina pork barbecue that you find in this part of the state. Well worth a stop when you are riding on I-26 past Chapin.

nice family restaurant with open seating -- you might have to share a table with some "new " friends but that just fine..

In town for a percussion competition at Chapin High School. Farm Boy was close by. We found it on Trip Advisor. It was great. It is an all you can eat buffet. Mustard based and vinegar based new. Both yummy. Fried chicken and abba hash. Collards, cabbage, limas, corn, rice, Mac 'n cheese, two types of slaw, small salad bar,... More

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.

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.
