Open three days/week (Th, Fr, Sat), Farm Boys is a very typical Souther Bar B Q buffet that offers special dishes on designated nights. For instance, TH is often chicken dumpling day, although the other offerings are all included as well. The food is abundant, hot, tasty, and varied. Various... read more

Good Country Style Cooking....Good food if you like BBQ and Fried stuff. They have mustard and vinegar based pulled pork. Hash is pretty good. Too many fried items. If you go at lunch, be prepared to wait. Lunch crowds are rough. Lots of sides. Unfortunately, when desserts were gone, they were GONE. Very tasty home style cobblers.

My family and I ate here this past weekend and while it wasn't awful, it wasn't great either. Food selection was good and staff was friendly. Just mediocre at best.

Heard about this place from some friends and thought we would try it out. Cute place with pigs all over the place. After filling our plates with the selection from the buffet we sat down and dug in. Honestly the bbq didn't have much flavor and was only saved in terms of taste from smothering it in sauce. Don't think... More

My family and I eat at farmboys once every 2 to 3 months as it is not convenient to where we live. However, when we are in the area we typically eat there and enjoy it. However, last Saturday night, we got there at what appeared to be closing time – as we were almost ready to put our hand... More

So-so Barbecue. Not impressed with their preparation. It was pretty stringy and the flavor was poured onto the meat, not cooked into it. Their sides are good.

Great family atmosphere and great food at a reasonable price! A need to go place. Not far off I-26 toward Chapin,SC and the gateway to Lake Murray! Farm boys has got you covered for any outing on the lake or party!

Farm Boys BBQ has consistently provided excellent food. But folks, there is a lot more to this restaurant than just BBQ. Their fried chicken is hot, crispy and delicious. Lots of veggies, large salad bar, dessert bar. Their hash and rice is the best I have ever eaten. If you leave hungry it is your fault! Give them a try... More
