Bucky's Bar-B-Q is A #1..Have eaten there many, many times. Casual atmosphere and friendly staff make this even better. Their sauce cannot be compared. You are given ample servings and it is so delicious, you would never eat bbq anywhere else (unless u are in New Ellenton SC where u would definitely eat bbq at Carolina BBQ)..But back to Bucky's--inexpensive,...

We have eaten BBQ all over the United States. Bucky's BBQ is the best. Check out the "all you can eat" ribs, chicken, and BBQ! The owner's story regarding his success is so interesting and inspiring! Ate there today, March 10th, and we will be bringing a group of 25 or 26 with us next time! Try it. You'll love... More

Good BBQ place! Be sure to try their Sweet Potato casserole. Quirky décor, picnic style seating and good food. A good value for little money!

I thought Bucky's BBQ was just average. Not bad, not good, just ok. I can promise you that you have probably had better before. Now, Pappy's in St Louis....that's real BBQ...And I hate to say that, b/c I am a SC native...but Bucky's can't compare.

Bucky has come a long way from when he first opened and catered our neighborhood social. My son swears by his BBQ and is there with his friends quite often. The sweet potato crunch is the best thing on the menu (IMHO) but the chopped pork is done very well also. I haven't really found a second side that consistently... More

As a native east Carolinian, I came in with fairly low expectations. Given the hype, I had to give Bucky's a shot. I enjoyed the pork plate for lunch. Here are my thoughts: BBQ - pulled pork hickory smoked. Very moist with just the right amount of smoke flavor. Appeared to be a good blend of meat. The sauce, although... More

Bucky's is our favorite BBQ outlet in the Greenville area. It's BBQ the way BBQ is meant to be --- not 'gussied up' and not 'urbanized' to suit the PR folks and the social set. Stop in, get some ribs, and get sauce all over your face and hands. Try it, you'll like it. Bucky's offers ribs, chopped (not pulled)... More
