Had the prime rib sandwich. Loved the subtle horseradish sauce and it came with au jus. Kind of like a redneck French dip. Real hand cut potatoes for fries. Yum. Up there with the best BBQ I've had.

We have been regular visitors to St. Simons for the past six years and we always look forward to regular visits to Southern Soul BBQ when we're in town. It's a place where you can choose to sit out front in the smoke-field of the BBQ oven or go inside rub elbows with the locals. My fave sandwich there is... More

After hearing about this place from a border security officer who trained at FLETC decided better try it. Very rustic tavern style restaurant. Large outdoor picnic style tables will accommodate large groups. Parking is a bit of a challenge. The place is always very busy, but you will be served quickly. The BBQ can't not be beat. Great value, fun... More

My wife and I stopped in to try their legendary ribs. We did not know they had a fire the year before. We ordered both Ribs and Brisket. We got the last full rack of ribs for the day and they were STILL GREAT! The bartender opened the wrong beer for the guy beside me, so offered it to me... More

I'm a local with strong opinions about our restaurants. Not all are good. This is very casual. You stand in line, place your order and find a picnic table. Servers bring you your food. Take-out works too. Prices are fair for what you get. I've never had a bad meal and go often. If you like barbecue it's as close... More

Everyone needs to try Southern Soul BBQ at least once. Love the food but don't like the noise. Always too loud for me. I believe it is over priced.

Excellent BBQ! I have been many times, never disappointed. My sisters both got the pulled pork plates, huge portions. I decided to try the special which was a Reuben made with their smoked pastrami. It was delicious, and very filling. Only problem is limited space for seating and parking.
