We were visiting SC and saw the good reviews. Did not disappoint! Southern BBQ at its best. The food and service were both perfect. Would definitely go back.

I came here on business because it was close to the hotel. I was pleasantly surprised. The food was good and my entire party enjoyed what they ordered

I have eaten here a few times. Normally I get the grill chicken salad and the peach cobbler but today I decided to try their ribs. I was not disappointment; well seasoned and the meat practically fell off the bone! Visiting this place is a must. The staff was very friendly. This place is small so if there's a large... More

I'm going to make this short and sweet. As far as pulled BBQ, it's good and I have no complaints, and it's above average in taste. But, OMG the 14 hour smoked ribs are the best I've had! A little expensive, but worth it to me. Order the Ribs!

Remember the old story of the little girl with the curl? When she was good, she was very very good, but when she was bad she was horrid. I have eaten at Willie Jewell's many times. When it's at its best Willie's is perfectly enjoyable. The ribs and brisket are my favorite two meats offered, and the lima beans (available... More

Enjoyed dinner at Willie Jewel's on the first of a 2-night stay in North Charleston. The pulled pork sandwich was piled high with a mountain of meat, so I ended up dividing it between the bun halves and using a different barbecue sauce on each half. Appreciated having four different options, including a tasty mustard-based sauce with a little kick... More

I liked the big servings and the way it comes out on a big tray. The turkey is my favorite and the sides are awesome.

This is not old school bbq - this is bad chain type food. We were recommended to this restaurant by our hotel staff. My husband and I both tried the pulled pork platter, with collard greens, mac 'n cheese (me) and baked beans (hubs). Food was below average with the pork having no discernible smoked taste or outside
