Good BBQ

The best barbecue on the island. The pulled pork and fried chicken are awesome. It is cafeteria style, with all you can eat. A definite must if you're visiting Edisto!

We visited Edisto for the first time last August, and Po Pigs was the first place we ate before we even checked into our condo. Don't go here if you're expecting frills and pretentiousness, this is an old-fashioned, very friendly southern restaurant. Everything is fresh made, and that shows in the flavor and quality of the food. You serve yourself... More

I normally don't do bad reviews, but the food here was not good at all. My family ate here this evening at 6:00 p.m., prime supper time. I would have thought the freshest food would have been on the bar. That was not the case. The food was over cooked or had been sitting out a long time. The staff... More

We got there when it opened at 11:30 and ordered some sandwiches and one dinner to go. I tried the fries as soon as we got in the car and they weren't hot and they were limp. The hash wasn't anything special either. The BBQ was good so get a sandwich with slaw and enjoy with a glass of sweet... More

I'm so confused by these 4 and 5 star reviews. They completely lead me in the wrong direction with eating here. We had the Bbq buffet. It was horrid. Food was dry...meat was just nothing special!! So disappointed!!! Would not recommend!!

Really disappointed. Went about 7:30 they close @ 9. Food not great, everything over- cooked. Service wonderful. Much better in previous years. Good value if food better. Oh well, maybe lunch next time. BTW, we had 11 people.

Ignore the bad reviews. Anytime you have a buffett, something will inevitably not be as "fresh" as some may prefer. The staff were oh so friendly. They made us feel like family! The food was different, but great! If you like "sweet" BBQ, I recommend the Orangeburg Sweet. Keep in mind, their sauces are mustard/vinegar based so it wouldn't taste... More

We ate here twice during our two week stay--once BBQ take out and once a late lunch. The food was excellent. BBQ was very good with the local "hash" being a worthwhile addition. The fried fish was done very well, with a lightly breaded coating and not at all greasy. We had some veggies from the buffet which were quite... More

We had the buffet, it was excellent with a wide variety of "southern dishes". The variety of side dishes complemented the excellent bar-b-que perfectly. It was excellent!!!

We ordered take out for lunch...BBQ sandwich plates. It came with cole slaw and fries. Tasted great...especially the cole slaw! They have a variety of sauces to choose from. We ordered sweet but were given the mustard based sauce. It was good but not what we wanted. We would go back any time!
