pretty good BBQ

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... read 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.!!

The South has some great BBQ but Kelly's offers the largest spread around. If you don't like BBQ they usually have plenty of other food to choose from. The fried chicken is amazing!! You can't beat this buffet. I was raised on eating Dukes BBQ, which is good, but Ole Kelly's has them beat.

This is an all you can eat establishment They have a very wide verity of foods and deserts on the table. The selection is far better than most. They are very popular around 5 to 6:30 in the evening and you have a mob to work through. At 7:00 pm it is less packed with people. They keep the food... More
