Service was quick. The BBQ didn't have much of a smoky flavor by itself. The sauce selection was ok, which was good because you really needed the sauces to enjoy the meat. Sides were above average and not out of a can.

Stopped in for a late lunch while visiting the area. Being from Eastern NC, we love BBQ and wanted to try the SC version. I got the pork dinner with collards and baked beans while my husband got the pork sandwich. The BBQ without any sauce is nothing to brag about and contained some rather large chunks of skin. Skin...

This was our first time coming to the restaurant after we came for a football game. After going up and down the road searching for a place to eat I found this place on Google maps. I read the reviews but decided to try it anyway. My husband and I had the pulled pork, green beans, slaw, fries and mac... More

The food was good, but not great. We enjoyed the BBQ sauce options, but the sandwiches were not anything special.

All three were great. Mac & cheese was the best I've ever had. The wife had the ribs, and coleslaw. The ribs were by... More

My husband and I went there for dinner this past Friday. They had such wonderful reviews on trip advisor/yelp/google. We figured everyone couldn't be wrong and they are right near our house. I got the turkey and pork with mac n' cheese and fries. My husband got brisket and pork with mac n' cheese and green beans. Both plates came... More

We visited on a Monday evening around 5:oo p.m. There was no line, no wait; there was only one other couple eating in the restaurant. We ordered two meat combo platters, a side salad, one chicken tender meal, and four drinks. It was more than plenty food for a family of two adults and three kids-who had huge appetites! It... More

Very close to the Hampton Inn I stayed at on 2688 Fernwood Drive in Charleston. I had a meat and BBQ combo--very good and at the low price of $9.99. I also had a bottle of beer that cost only $2.50. Not only is the food and service excellent, but as you can see the price is right. This restaurant... More

We have eaten here several times during our visits. The meat is really good and juicy. Prices are very reasonable. Great selection of sides. I recommend the beef with collard greens and fries.

Saw the reviews here and had to try. Just finished off my pork supper with the North Carolina Vinegar sauce. Awesome! The Country Corn Fritters are excellent, and the radio station was blasting 80-90's rock. No room for desert, so will have to come back one day soon.
