Request Jacoby if you can. Dude is great and very friendly. Staff was amazing as well. Service was fast and quick. We came here as we are on our honeymoon and they took care of us very much. This place was great and accommodating to our needs.

Top 3 best BBQ meals I've had in my entire life and by the far the best service I've received in my recent trip to Charleston (Which i don't take for granted after the horrible experiences Ive had this past weekend with service at other restaurants!!!). Congrats on a well run restaurant, very friendly staff and the beef brisket is... More

We have been here multiple times and it has always been great food and great service. The food was still good as usual but our server was so very rude. We will not be returning due this and will be trying some of the other bbq in the area.

While taking a break from shopping on King Street, I decided to stop in here for a quick lunch. This great spot fit the bill, offering a delicious BBQ turkey sandwich within minutes of ordering and choosing a seat. The menu offered a variety of options, and the seating area was comfortable and clean. A great place!

The three dots comes because they had gluten free choices for my grandson. Other than that, food was average or below and the tables were sticky. Not my favorite place and I would not return.

Wasn't impressed. The pork on my sandwich... What wasn't big chunks of fat was just dried out. Much better BBQ to be had in the area. And the service was spotty.

We stopped here while in Charleston for the weekend. My BBQ pork sandwich was superb and we came back again the next day. I had potato salad and also the fried green tomatoes. My husband loved the pork tacos. The sauce was also very good.

I ordered a pulled pork sandwich and fresh fruit. My wife ordered a pulled chicken sandwich with fries. Our food arrived quickly. The pork was very good, but there was more fat in the meat than I expect. My wife also found a small bone in her chicken and said there was quite a lot of fat in it too.... More

Delicious BBQ and sandwiches. The baked potato was absolutely huge! It had sour cream, bacon, scallions, cheese, and pulled pork all piled on. Amazing! The burgers and brisket were also fantastic according to my family members. Delicious mac n cheese too. The prices were about average. Plenty of room to sit and plenty of food and drinks to choose from.... More
