I really enjoyed the barbecue and fries. My wife is a vegetarian and enjoyed the fries but the slaw was not what she was looking for.

I'm not sure what I missed as we picked this spot off everyone elses glowing reviews. We get to a small place that is packed, and the smell of meat roasting fills the air, so I'm thinking jack pot. We place our order and luck out to grab a table as someone stands up. There is outdoor seating but a... More

A trip to SSI is not complete without at least one visit to Southern Soul. It's the best BBQ anywhere!!

Found out about this place on our trolley tour and knew we had to go when we passed at 2 o'clock in the afternoon and the placed was packed. We returned at the end of the week at 4 o'clock in the afternoon and had no wait. Loved the casual ambience with picnic tables and license plate décor.

Ribs, ribs, ribs ... Amazing ribs! Love their fries, too. Always crowded, but worth the wait. A small number of indoor tables (with A/C), and large picnic tables outside. Pulled pork is also good. We actually got a slab of ribs to take back home with us, and they traveled very well on ice in our cooler. Love this place!

this place was highly recommended by the locals! pricing was below average for the quality of food. Dress casual for the authentic rustic feel and optional outdoor seating. The servings are hefty remember your Doggie bag.......

2nd year in a row for a big family gathering with SS take out. The pulled pork is second to none and we decimated the 3lbs of brisket. Mac-n-cheese is super good. If you're near - you'd better stop. I can't wait for next summer.

This was our second visit. First time was just me and my husband. This time, our three teenagers and my mom (she was visiting from out of town) were with us. Food is just delicious. Brunswick Stew is a must try. Ribs are moist and yummy. It was really hot, but they have pretty good fans outside, with plenty of... More

This is a must stop bbq place on your visit to the Island. Try the potato salad or fries there is seating inside but outside is great atmosphere!

I had the pork Bbq plate and husband had the brisket. Both very good Bbq. We both mixed the sweet southern and spicy sauces. I liked the low country boil flavor of the Hoppin John. We picked up to take back to the cottage, but would have enjoyed eating outside watching the roundabout antics.
