I can't say enough how great the food is and how wonderful the family is...the service is remarkable.

“What A Restaurant!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

...we heard about this place from a local we met at our motel...because they're only open on thursdays and fridays, we raced back to beaufort from hilton head where we were doing some sightseeing following graduation at the MCRD...we made it in the nick of time but it was still "closing time"...this group of folks were SO gracious and accomodating -- they told us to take our time and "ENJOY!"...the owners chatted with us and we shared our love of local dining & where we were from...having worked in the restaurant industry, i know how irritating it can be to have customers arrive at the 11th hour...if they were--they didn't show it...the food was delicious, the staff was friendly, the dining room was adorable and the value was superb...i absolutely LOVED EVERYTHING about this place & wish i lived closer so i could be a "regular"...thank you, folks, for accomodating two yankee tourists and being so sweet!!!

“Awesome barbecue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

This was our last meal for our vacation and I have to say we saved the best for last. We actually were told about this barbecue by a local at the gas station...they did not lead us astray. The food was awesome. It even beat out a prime rib buffet at our resort. Loved everything.

“Thursday and Friday 11-9. Got it?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

And make sure you get the address and telephone number from Trip Advisor.
My sociopathic GPS gave me the owner's old cell number from four years ago and the address on the GPS was next door to some very picturesque salt marshes.

Now that we've gotten the housekeeping chores out of the way, let's talk about food.
On second thought, let's not waste time.
Just put it on your calendar for next Thursday, or better yet, next Thursday AND Friday.
Here's an idea: eat in the restaurant on Thursday and have a civilized experience.
Grab the take-out menu on your way out and on Friday, get everything you really wanted as To Go Food and enjoy away from prying eyes.
That way you can shovel in mounds of side dishes and splatter sauce down the front of your second-best souvenir t-shirt and the only one who'll judge will be the one who does your laundry.

And don't forget to stop by a produce stand for your dessert watermelon.

Happy digesting!

“Call ahead”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

Be sure to call before you go. I drove up from Hilton Head and found that Dukes Barbecue opens only a few days a week. It was a disappointment after reading others' reviews! Maybe next rip...
