Amazing fried chicken and wonderful brisket.

I can't believe we just found this restaurant! Driving a back road and saw a crowded parking lot and family was hungry. Not one single complaint, except they are only open Wed thru Saturday. For the price, which included everything, drinks and dessert too, I haven't had a better meal in the entire... read more

Very friendly staff! Buffet style (all you can eat) BBQ and southern food. Lots of menu options to eat until your gut is busting. Average BBQ for the area, nothing to blow you away, but good stuff. This is great place to feed the entire family and not break the bank.

This is an all you can eat BBQ. The seating is at long rows of picnic tables. The selection of veg.s is very broad. They have several types of salads. They have a number of nice sweets for a final course. They have the typical BBQ meat selection - pulled pork and chicken. However, on Thursday they have a lightly... More

There is nothing fancy about the place just good solid food. Meat options are shredded bbq, brisket, bbq and fried chicken. There are plenty of vegetable options from corn nuggets to beans to cheesy potatoes. The bacon Cole slaw is different and worth a try. Desserts are ok. Pie and cake seem store bought but are good. This place is... More

The building looks like...well, a Barbecue place. That's a good thing. It gives you the sense that you are going to an authentic southern Barbeque restaurant...and your senses would be correct. If you haven't been there, or haven't been there lately, you should clean up you act and get over there for dinner soon!

Kelly's is located just outside Summerville. I lived in West Ashley for a long time and we would drive to Summerville just to eat here. The place is nothing fancy. You sit at picnic tables. It is a buffet with lots of food. If you leave here hungry, it's your fault. When you enter, you go to the cash register... More

Excellent buffet. Is called a BBQ restaurant, but really they have a wide variety of food, all very good. Southern cooking at its best! Will definitely go here again. The food was not like a typical buffet. It was "home cooked" and did not seem frozen and reheated at all. It was all delicious.

If you are hungry for southern vegetables, fried chicken, BBQ and a few desserts, Kelly's is the place for you! I enjoyed the vegetables-which were amazingly still good even though they were served at a buffet. Usually I do not like buffet food as it is dry and cold, but this was not. The seasoning on the vegetables was good-not... More

This was my first time time going to this restaurant and I loved it. It has real homemade country cooking, buffet style. All the food was great!

Fantastic pulled pork, and possibly THE best fried chicken in the tri-county area! Good ribs on certain days and catfish on certain days. The ONLY downer is that they only open We'd- Sat.!!
