We had all you can eat ribs on Monday night. They don't advertise it, you'll need to ask if they have em. When you hear the price you'll be amazed. The ribs were outstanding, and, the service was efficient and friendly. The menu prices are right in line with other casual eateries. But, the AYCE ribs are a great deal!... More

The food is good and the portions are generous. You have a choice between white or red slaw, and the red slaw is outstanding and hard to find. Overall good value for the money. Traditional southern style pork barbecue. Ribs are good but not really outstanding, could be improved.

Very good food. Very good BBQ and ribs. Wide selection of other casual lunch food. Very fast service. They do a busy take-out business as well. A place for a good value and quick in and out, rather than lingering and chatting.

While making a trip to Fort Mill we decided to try and find a BBQ joint in the area. We came across 521 and seeing the very busy parking lot decided to give it a try. Even though the place was hopping they really move people in and out quickly and a lot of the business was to go orders.... More

Dinner at 521 BBQ is a very casual, but delicious, experience. We enjoyed every mouthful of our pork BBQ, baby back ribs, sausage and children's chicken tenders meals, and the sides were all good, too. We can't wait to eat there again! Portions are generous. Service is friendly and attentive! Seating is ultra-casual with a mix of booths, tables and... More

We keep frozen PP in the freezer at all times. The ribs are one of the best things I have ever eaten. Slaw is out of this world! Recently on FB they got ranked 5/10 out of both Carolina's.

This is a fantastic place. Great ribs that fall off the bone. Fantastic chicken, outstanding pulled pork. I have been to this location off 521 serve real times. And I thanks them each time. The food is not greasy and is cooked to perfection. I can truly say for good BBQ look no further.

Four of us went to lunch. Three of us had the combo tray with bbq and ribs. The ribs are fantastic with a charred smokey flavor. The French fries were crinkle cut and hot. The hush puppies are reportedly tender and moist with a crispy outside. The slaw is fresh and full of flavor. One person had the bbq sandwich... More

If you are looking for great BBQ food look no further then 521 BBQ & Grill! There are two locations, Indian Land, SC on Rt. 521 and Tega Cay, SC on Rt. 160. Both are great and have the best pulled pork sandwiches and ribs. I've been to many BBQ restaurants in this area before I stopped by 521 BBQ... More
