AWESOME BBQ and friendly, helpful staff

We ordered pulled pork bbq plates. On the recommendation of employees Denny and Victoria, we ordered one plate with sides of pinto beans and mac n' cheese that we mixed together to form a delicious "chili mac".

I frequently purchase Bucky's take out for my family. We love BBQ and we enjoy the side dishes at Bucky's. Though I feel that it has become someonewhat pricey, we would continue to dine with Bucky EXCEPT for the fact that the owners/servers are ALWAYS unpleasant. They never smile; they are never courteous. They seem to think they are doing... More

I have been going to Bucky's for 5 years and never have I been disapointed. They specialize in pork barbeque, low and slow smoke cooked to perfection. I also like their smoked chicken and ribs. The ribs are St. Louis style which I think have some advantages over baby backs. The sides are decadent and suitable for your "splurge night"... More

Gravel parking lot belies what is inside. The minute the door opens you begin to get a hint of what is to come. Standing in line reading the menu on the wall behind the servers adds to the suspense. It's all good but try the chopped pork if you wish to start slowly and will return. If this visit is... More

Bucky's was on my must-try list for Greenville, and I'm glad I tried it. It's a true local place, and the people who work there are gems! Wednesday and Fridays, they have AYCE BBQ for $13.95. That's right, folks: AYCE pork, ribs, chicken, and sides! The pulled pork was delicious and the ribs are super tender. They offer two versions... More

The food was great and the amount of food was a steal for $8. Unfortunately their hours aren't posted anywhere and they close early if the weather is poor. Will go again next time I'm in the area!

Ate there after reading reviews and I am so glad we did. The BBQ was out of this world and the menu had a good variety of sides. The sweet potato shuffle was delicious as well as the potato salad. The prices were very reasonable and if you leave hungry don't know why. The family enjoyed it very much and... More

This is definitely the best BBQ in Greenville. Not to mention, the ribs and the sides are great. Their sweet potato crunch is out of this world.

On the road, we like to patronize local businesses, including restaurants. Preparing for this vacation, I reviewed top BBQ restaurants on TripAdvisor for each city we planned to visit, and this was the top pick for Greenville. A friend living in Greenville also recommended it highly. The menu is clearly posted behind the order counter and everything is modestly priced.... More
