“What happened? Off night?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

After finding this gem on our last trip - we were very excited to go back and take friends. What a mistake. Service seemed lacking, several of the drinks were "out" of ingredients and then the food just was not up to expectations. We were actually embarrassed since we had bragged and talked about the food and drinks. Not sure if they got too big, too fast or just an off night.

“Very Good But Not Great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

After reading all the comments before my trip I had already decided to try BBBJ. It was a good hamburger but I was actually expecting more. The burger didn't even fill the entire bun (which I did find very tasteful and soft). The ff were good but again not very many. For the reviews this place gets I was expecting more, I guess.

“Bang for your buck!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012 via mobile

Came in earlier in the week down for Southern Music festival. Stopped in based off reviews on TA. Might I say we weren't disappointed the least. Rare burger was actually rare! Very nice to see that in SC and pretty much everything is hand crafted! Great beer selection, extensive menu for everyone of shape and size. Our server Chris was the one that suggested what we ate and the temps we decided. This place Is a bargain! Thank you big Billy's you have a lifetime customer!

“Burgers are Way Above Average”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

This restaurant grinds fresh meat daily. They also make at least some of their condiments. The atmosphere is relaxing and pleasing.

“A great place to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012 via mobile

Wasn't to sure about going in to eat. We never heard of this place before. However, looking at Tripadvisor we thought we would give it a try and we were sure glad we did!

Food was outstanding. The people that worked there were also outstanding. Very friendly. The server came to our table and introduce yourself, and told us all about the beef and where they get it from. Never experienced that before.

If you never have eaten there before, give them a try. I think you're going to like it. Once again, great friendly staff.
