First off dry pork chopped to mince, ever heard of pulled pork and try not "smoking/cooking" it to death. You can low and slow it right into a coma. The chicken is sold by the half , probably a good thing, since had a hard time deciding if it was a chicken or pigeon, no size to the half we... More

We went to the Lake forest location. We drove past it twice and were about to give up. I am so glad we found it. The pulled pork is some of the best I ever had. No sauce needed, but if you prefer, the make a good sweet and an excellent mustard sauce. The chicken is also very good. It... More

It may not be much to look at from the outside, but Bucky's is a gem. I am a bbq connoisseur and this pork bbq is outstanding. The portions are large, also, and the sides are a little unique and also excellent. Brought one of my customers from the San Francisco Bay area here and she loved it. It gave... More

The meat has excellent smoke flavor and the sauces are tasty. I've had better, but not in Greenville. The sides are what you expect from a BBQ place. It is overall a great BBQ experience. The staff person who chops the meat is worth the trip. He is so grumpy and unfriendly, it makes me chuckle.

Excellent pulled pork! Some find that the dry-rub only meats of Bucky's don't have enough flavor and they are TOTALLY wrong, this pork lets the real flavors shine...as in REAL hickory smoke flavor, lean pork and bits of "bark". There are at least 3 BBQ sauces on the table to add "extra" sauce as you desire. Don't forget the "Sweet... More

Came here for a bite after a round of golf. Service was quick and the waitress had a great personality. She kept us laughing every time she came to the table. I had the pulled pork plate, which was excellent. Mac and Cheese was just the way I like it and the green beans were pretty good too. Beer was... More

Not grande cuisine but a very sought after traditional BBQ suitable for lunch with colleagues. Tasty. If you go for lunch, expect a line.

For less than $8, you can get a large helping of smoked bar-b-q pork meat, 2 sides, slice of bread and a drink. The side choices are very good. Took a co-worker there for the first time and he loved it. He was amazed at the value and the quality of the food. The sweet potato crunch is delicious. Really... More

I have been to Buckys on Roper Mountain Rd and on Pleasantburg Dr. The food was excellent in both places and the staff friendly. The portions are very generous and seasoned well but not overly seasoned. I really like their mustard sauce and also the sweet potato crunch. My husband likes both places as well. Prices are reasonable.
