“BBQ from Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

We couldn't wait to get back on a recent visit to Greenville. It's just as good as we remember it. Authentic BBQ, great sauce, reasonable portion sizes, and a superb side of sweet potato casserole. Makes my mouth water just thinking about it. Go early or late for lunch if you want a seat, or just take out a picnic. You won't be disappointed!

“Good Barbeque”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

This small restaurant offers both eat in and take out meals. While we were there, an amazing number of take out meals were served!
My meal was ribs and pulled pork, both were excellent with just the right amount of smoke flavor and a minimal amount of fat. The sides were nothing special, but the ribs made up for them!
Good food served fast at a reasonable cost. Works for me....

“The meat's the thing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

Pulled pork is tender and juicy with just the right amount of smoke. I had the beans and mac and cheese for sides. Very dissapointed, the beans seemed to be straight out of the can, nothing special, and the mac and cheese wasnt much better. The sweet tea is slightly better than normal. So, if you believe the meat's the thing, then this place is for you. I'll be trying the ribs next.

“best bbq in greenville hands down”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Henry's is definitely consistently the best bbq in town... not only is the price incredible, the food is amazing, and not just the bbq, but the sides as well. Also, if you are looking for really affordable catering this is the place, they do large events if desired, but this place is a ridiculously good bargain for catering smaller groups (just call ahead and let them know when you are coming). Frequent eater and bbq lover.

“Not a good experience compared with previous visits!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Friends and I went for lunch on Saturday. We had ribs and chicken. What a sad state of affairs compared to previous visits. The pork ribs were definitely not freshly cooked tha day! dry and lacking any texture... the bones would disintegrate in my mouth. I have never had that happen before anytime that I have eaten ribs. The chicken they service is a boneless skinless breast. The meat was mush in the mouth! They were quite busy. The sides seem to be freshly prepared somewhere as was the iced tea. If you are looking for BBQ skip this place!
