“Good food at a reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

South Carolina doesnt have the great BBQ restaurants that NC has and doesnt have the regional variety of other states. Mostly its pulled pork. Buckys has very good pulled pork and reasonable ribs. It is a good value for the money

“I am a low country boy that loves this upstate BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

I remember him as he started this place. He is a man of integrity that really knows how to cook. The Roper Mountain location is my favorite one. You won't regret it.

“Best BBQ in South Carolina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

I've a BBQ snob, I won't lie. I travel a lot all over Georgia, Western North Carolina and the Upstate of SC on my motorcycle. I pull into every roadside BBQ shack I find. There's good Q here and there, and if you're in the Greenville area, there's none better than Bucky's. They really stick to the basic principles of making good cue. A good dry rub, low heat and the time to smoke it slow. The ribs are also very good. The sauce is a vinegar/tomato or a mustard based. But the Q is so good, you should really leave the sauces alone, they are not needed. Sides are all great, I find the hot pinto beans are my favorite. Mac and Cheese a close second.

“''the absolute best" u are going to find. Anywhere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013 via mobile

I live in the area and I have had a lot of BBQ and buckys is the best. I mean they actually smoke it with wood that u taste. There are a couple of places that are worth mentioning, but none are worth going to; when compared to Buckys. The ribs are good but if that's what u want go to the all u can rib night on Fri or wed. Veggies don't taste like they come out a can. Also they have a lighter side portion wise. Enjoy oh yea they aren't as stingy ay the roper mountain location. Ok enjoy

“I can't live close enough!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

This is the little place that everyone talks about going to that has odd hours because it is THAT GOOD! They close at 8, they are closed on Sundays and Mondays. So that being said, make some time to go!

I live 5 miles away from this place and go once a week! Get the BBQ plate with their Mac and Cheese!
