“Good, but I Think There May Be Better”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Stopped here for lunch after a business meeting. The restaurant is buried in a strip center. I was early for the lunch crowd - I was the only one in the place - but soon the place was filled with people. I had the pork plate with beans and sweet potato crunch. I thought the pork could have been heated a bit, it was room temperature. The addition of BBQ sauce offset the temperature of the pork (I am a vinegar fan). The sweet potato crunch is definitely something to try. Very good. Will stop by again when in the area and eager to try their other offerings.

“As advertised”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

Everything has been covered in previous reviews. The food is very good and taste wonderful. Ple portions as well. Only issue was temp of food was cool. Appears they need to turn up serving trays a little. Great smoked flavor for the pork and the sweet potato crunch was excellent as we're the baked beans.

“Very overrated and a bit scary.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

Pretty tasteless as well as being not exactly what I wanted. I promise you've had better. I don't recommend there are better ones in the area.

“Went to try S C Pork, Left wanting Texas Beef.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

I read about the best Bar B Q places in S.C and tried this place as one of the top rated ones. The pork they serve was tasteless and their mustard and tomato vinegar sauces did not help. Their chicken was tasty but again not as smoked and flavorful as the Texas bar b q that I am used to. The food otherwise was tasty. We had a representative sample of their fare and give the place high marks on everything except the quality of the beef bar b q. Oh! There wasn't any.

“Yummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

It may not look it from the outside, but this place is FANTASTIC! We had very yummy pork bbq that was served in very LARGE portions. The cole slaw was very tasty and the sweet potato crunch was fantastic--I ate it for dessert!!
