Description: Traditional slow-cooked, hand pulled pork, smoked chicken and ribs. We are a small family run, veteran owned business. No frills - just good food. The kitchen is outside in the "caboose" and orders come over through the window. Some people question us using plastic and carry out containers - it is a DHEC regulation for us because we are on a septic system and subject to water usage amounts. Most of our customers don't mind the carry out containers but we are trying to figure out a way to use plates and silverware....always a work in progress.For now - "BBQ GOURMET IN A TAKE OUT TRAY"

Stopped for lunch at my favorite Q place in Bluffton today. Had the "Trainwreck Special". A Sandwich pilled with pork, chicken and rib meat. Just delicious.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014 via mobile

The best barbecue we have eaten in years. They also have delicious collard greens and other sides. Very friendly environment and family owned.

We highly recommend!

“Most, Tender Great Flavor!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014 via mobile

We arrived for lunch around 2pm after trying The Cottage Cafe in Bluffton (cramped & busy). The Choo Choo BBQ Express is a small family owned business, 2 dining rooms, casual and friendly. They had sold out of pulled pork bbq earlier that morning so the owner substituted extra chicken & ribs on our sandwiches. :-) My daughter (picky eater) LOVED it! She recommends the ribs (really tender & moist) & hush puppies (light & crispy). Great flavor & fresh.

“Best Q in the Low Country”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013 via mobile

Just had another great lunch at the Q-express. Can't beat a good size pulled pork sandwich with a generous amount of fries and a drink for under $7.00. BTW I am a big guy.
If I say good size and generous, I mean it!

“Perfect, delicious, casual BBQ!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013 via mobile

The food was delicious ( I had a pulled chicken sandwich and sweet potato casserole), the owner was friendly and served us himself...we loved the homey, no-frills atmosphere. It was a beautiful fall day so we ate outside, where we enjoyed the added delight of sitting not far from the smoker! The sweet potatoes were so good that we bought an extra portion to take home for dinner. We will definitely visit again on our next trip to HH/Savannah.
