Excellent Buffet

Top ol line for consistency. Eat here frequently because they always have good food. The menu never changes, but foods they cook are always perfect.

Farm Boys has some of the best pulled pork, ribs and chicken anywhere in a clean and family friendly atmosphere.

The best chicken wings on earth! my favorite baked beans and the bbq hash is almost impossible to beat. The staff is always courteous and believe me when I say the wait is worth it. Only thing I'd change is how far away I live.

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.
