Favorite BBQ in Greenville

This is our favorite place for BBQ in Greenville. It's not fancy or complicated, but it is delicious. Very casual atmosphere without a whole lot of ambience, but great for take out. Try the sweet potato crunch-to die for!

The only place to get BBQ! Fast, friendly service. Outstanding food. The sweet potato crunch is awesome. They also have a ketchup based sauce as well as a mustard based sauce. You can also purchase the sauce by the bottle.

Now this is a great bbq restaurant. They have great ribs, macaroni & cheese, and pork. The Ribs are probably some of the best ribs in the area. The mac & cheese satisfies anyone. The service is good. Keep it up guys.

I would've ranked this a total of 5 stars if the service wasn't so lack luster. The food however, is yum yum. You can smell the delicious barbeque smoke hits you as soon as you walk in the door. Whats better is that you take the smoke smell home with you in their pork!! The sweet potato casserole reminds me... More

Stopped by after a soccer game, we ordered the combo, the sandwich and and full rack of ribs. The ribs were top notch, everything else was good too. Their sweet potato crunch is very good. The only thing I didn't like about this place is that 1. The DONT WEAR GLOVES to serve the food. 2. Most of the food... More

Met my friend for lunch there and it was a treat! The Q was excellent, clean, lean, and tender! Side choices good too. I had the Cajun pintos, (probably would prefer just regular pintos) and the sweet potato 'crunch'----TO DIE FOR!!! Don't miss the sweet potato stuff, really! A piece of white bread was a little disappointing..... I'd prefer hush... More

Naysayers aside, really delicious food. Doesn't matter to me if some of the sides come from a can or not. Took a co-worker who is leaving for another job there for lunch last week. Love the no-nonsense order at the counter, lines move fast operation. He loved his food. I got the pork w/mac/cheese and green beans. Love their tangy... More

Greenville has many good barbecue restaurants. Bucky's OUTSHINES them all, not only with their delicious barbecue and side dishes, but also with their hospitality and dedication to quality and service. In this day, a restaurant's customer service is at least as important as the quality of their food. Bucky's Bar-B-Q recently catered a company luncheon for my office. We broke... More
