“I don't know what everybody is talking about.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

I work about three minutes from Brown's in Kingstree. From the inside and outside it looks like a typical SC barbecue joint. I guess the people are friendly enough but the barbecue is a very poor example of the local style and the rest of the food is pretty much flavorless. The fried chicken is pretty good. Lunch buffet costs $13- about $4-5 more than the competition. I won't be back unless one of my customers forces me.

“A South Carolina tradition”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2011

Brown's serves a vinegar-pepper kind of BBQ, and it's meaty and moist with a little sharpness to it. You won't find great amenities at this roadside restaurant, but you will find tasty BBQ.

You wouldn't know it from the looks of the place, but they consistently have great food. A local favorite.
