“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Love, love, love this place. My husband and I eat here every time we visit Hilton Head. Atmosphere is laid back, service is great, food is awesome. Servers know the menu and know what to recommend and can answer all your questions. Never had a bad experience at One Hot Mama's, only thing that would make it better is if we could meet Orchid the owner.

“Home cooking...this place has it all!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

After reading reviews on Yelp, we decided to venture out to this restaurant. There was a wait (we were a party of 6), but we were able to wait in a neighboring eatery/bar, which had a happy hour going on, so the time passed quickly! It's obvious the other restaurants in this complex feed off of waiting guests, as their establishments were empty.

Once seated (took first available, so we ate outside). Our server was so detailed and proved us great recommendations on what to order. Prices were cheap when compared to the amount of food you receive. Had the wings for appetizers..YUM! Ribs, fried chicken, brisket, greens, mac n cheese, stew, etc were all shared across the table...and we literally needed to be wheeled out of there when we were done. Our server had the nerve to tempt us by providing the most detailed list of desserts I have ever heard. His choice of adjectives was hilarious, and had our mouths watering...but our bellies said, go home and lay down!

This restaurant is a must check out spot if ever in Hilton Head!!

“Best Chicken Sandwich!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

We had to wait 70 minutes to eat here, but it was packed every night so we decided to wait. Wirth the wait. My husband and daughter had the ribs that just fell off the bone tender and excellent BBQ sauce. My son and I had the fried chicken sandwich wuth bacon, monterey jack cheese and drizzled with honey. We added onion straws on top and it was delicious.this place is worth the wait. The tables are close together so ask fir a booth.

“Great wings - ok service - GREAT wings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Did I say great wings? I love wings, and these did not disappoint. We had the sampler, and we all loved the hot Asian. In fact, a few of us confessed to craving them later in the week.

The other food was good, but nothing stood out. The service was disjointed and rough. Our server was in too much of a hurry and missed that napkins were spents and glasses were empty.

Key Lime pie was served warm - tasted great, but surely that was a mistake?

“Pulled Pork Surprise”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

If you have any familiarity with Carolina BBQ, you'll scratch your head about One Hot Mama's "Pulled pork sandwich." The menu indicates that it's their #1 seller, but it's not traditional Carolina BBQ. I guess that's why they were careful not to call it "BBQ."

Their BBQ -sorry, pulled pork sandwich- reminds me of a Texas smoked brisket, but not the vinegar-based version of the Carolinas.

Otherwise, the restaurant is a nice American grill... I was just hoping for traditional Carolina BBQ.
