This was my second visit with the family. Great food and better value. Excellent assortment of fresh southern barbeque with all the sides. Not a fancy place...Styrofoam plates and plastic ware. But the food is very good. It's a very family friendly place where you will not leave hungry. Check it out....

This place had AMAZING BBQ and sides for only about $10 per person with a drink! It all tasted great, made hot and fresh and constantly refilled to keep fresh! It was busy but didn't feel uncomfortable because it was family style eating! Will definitely be stopping here again and recommending to anyone I know going up/down 77 in SC!!

This place is very good. The only complaint that I may have are their napkins lol. Cause this place is finger licking good and the napkins won't cut it.

Buffet price: $10 incl drink. Delicious BBQ. Very impressed as a buffet will always be questionable. However, large traffic volume demands frequent replenishment of fresh foods. Brisket: Sweet & Moist Pulled Pork: mustard and viniger flavored; delicious Fried Pork Chop: Moist and oh so good. Fried Chicken: Golden brown & Moist....Grandma style! Mac & Cheeze and Green beans cooked in... More

We saw a billboard on I-20 W and decided to stop for lunch. We were delighted with the amount and selection of food. There were several southern style vegetables as well as many types of barbecued meat and fried fish. You pay first ($8.99) then go through a cafeteria line; a drink and dessert are included in the price. In... More

NOT homemade sides on buffet. They are poor quality sides with poorer taste. Novel seating: it's first come, first serve. You find a seat where you can, so you could sit with someone from any walk of life. If you want god BBQ in Columbia SC go to Hudson's in Lexington or try a great local fast food places' called...

Very strict on what you can get for your money. No substitutions allowed. Very loud inside. Won't be back.

Great food. The variety, taste and price is unbeatable. I would recommend it without hesitation. You can eat there everyday of the week and eat something different. So many meats to choose from and the sides are delicious . The collard greens are obviously fresh and the best I have ever tasted! Great food and value.

There was nothing on the menu that was not GREAT! 4+ different types of pulled pork, veggies, and the hushpuppies were HEAVENLY! I can't even describe all of the greatness that was served there. It was definitely home cooking. The name of the restaurant will definitely describe your appetite when you see the food selections. The prices were perfect as... More
