“Pretty good barbecue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Duke's BBQ serves only buffet-style and has a large number of home-cooked vegetables as well as barbecue. The price is reasonable and includes several desserts. They are only open Thursday through Sunday. There is a bit of competition between this barbecue restaurant and the other barbecue restaurant in Ridgeland. Both are delicious. From my limited experience, the other offered more meat selections and this restaurant offered more vegetable and dessert selections.

“I love the food here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Home cooked southern food and BBQ. The fried chicken is the best! The price is very reasonable and you eat as much as you want.

“Real homestyle Southern food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

This is a no frills freshly cooked absolutely delicious, all you can eat Southern buffet that is filled with so many choices that you just might have to make a second, third or ? trip back to the buffet line.

Duke's is open only on Thursday thru Saturday, 11 AM- 8 PM.

Everything is fresh right out of the kitchen from dirty rice, hash, okra, stewed tomatoes, lean pulled pork, the best tasting Southern fried chicken you will ever put in your mouth, mac n cheese, collard greens, string beans, creamed corn, homemade potato chips, hush puppies, etc., etc., plus desert and drink included for about $9.

Just by looking at the parking lot you will know this is "the place" locals eat.

If you are traveling on I-95 between Bluffton and Ridgeland and want to put some "South in Your Mouth" instead of a Mac burger meal, get off the highway and head over to Duke's.

Your tummy will thank you!

“Lunch Buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Great place for a meal like Momma's cooking, they have BBQ which will satisfy you for sure, fried chicken, fried okra, dirty rice, mac and cheese, corn, etc. etc, Duke's reminds me of the day's Grandma did the cooking on Sunday's. They are only open Thursday thru Saturday. If you don't walk out with a full belly it's because you didn't walk in.

“Real good home cooking and cheap”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Before I start the review I want to let you know Duke's in Ridgeland is only open Thursday- Saturday. Lunch buffet is $9.00 for adults which includes drink and dessert. Children $5.50. I tried the following items and everything was delicious. The bbq pork, fried chicken, fried okra, and homemade potato chips were not greasy. The fresh cream corn, collard greens, rutabagas, stewed tomatoes and okra, butterbeans were seasoned well. I tried the peach cobbler and it was excellent even though they used can peaches. Note for children that are finicky eaters; they do not have chicken fingers on the buffet but do have mac/ cheese and green beans.
