This little gem is worth a trip. It's a no frills place with outdoor picnic tables. The ribs are tender and full of flavor. BBQ and hash a great as well.

Best bbq in the area. Limited days open, and take out only, but worth it. Even their sauce is good, and I am very picky about my bbq. Ribs are excellent, and sandwich also. Good smoky taste, and tender and moist. Nice folks, too.

A guy calls himself a pit master and writes a review. Don't listen to that guy. Sounds like he scraped off his taste buds long ago. One of the best local joints around Columbia. Only open two days a week so be prepared. If a place can stay in business on two days a week they are doing something right.... More

Stopped in by chance, once inside I saw it was take out only but got a plate to-go anyway. I'm a Master BBQ judge always looking for a local BBQ place to try. I found the meat to be rather bland and tasteless. No smoke, no flavor, nothing; I don't think they even put a little salt on the meat.... More

I'm a Master BBQ judge and I live and work nearby. I love to drive by and smell the aroma of the old fashioned wood pit and BBQ as it fills the air on Thursday and Friday nights. The technique is first rate. The meat was smoked well but the mustard sauce is bland and the sandwich I had was... More

The Bar B Que pulled pork was great. The hash was a little bland but I am very picky when it comes to my hash. The sauce was great and it was perfect for that July 4th holiday. Looking forward to enjoying some more Bar B Que from there in the future.

Best slow cooked, wood smoked pork you can find. Family owned and run for years and years. They also know how to cook BBQ chicken. May be the best kept secret. Homemade mustard based sauce served on the side. Slaw, hash, rice, bread and buns. Cement block building, no table, no chairs. Everything is to go. Try it and you'll... More

Old school BBQ is how I would sum up Hites. You wont find any propane cookers here! It is family owned and run and they have been doing it the same way for decades. Nothing fancy, but great BBQ at great prices. You can taste the deep smoke and the pork is just outstanding. It's something a little different than... More

Hite's Bar B Que is, for lack of a better work, perfect. The pork is slow smoked over real wood fire, and it soaks up the smokey flavor beautifully. It is, simply, the best BBQ I've ever had. Their sauce is also delicious, and they don't douse the meat in it either, it's served on the side in a cup... More
