Good eats! Good price!

Wife and I both had sandwiches. I ordered with two sides of fries and she ordered just the sandwich. Yes I shared. We both had plenty of tasty BBQ to eat and large orders of fresh cut French fries.

The hotel recommended this place for good BBQ. A little hard to find, they are near the ice cream joint Andies that is well lit. As I approached, I could see and smell the hickory firepit. The ribs were good, not great. Meaty, smoky, dry rubbed but not very tender and did not have as much of a char or... More

Buckingham Smokehouse is a locally owned restaurant and you can smell the wood burning as you pull up. The decor is more in line with... More

Great ribs and their turkey sandwich is really good. Lots of BBQ sauces for sale and several to sample. Probably my 1st or 2nd favorite BBQ restaurant in Columbia.

Very good BBQ at an affordable price. We were planning to go to another restaurant nearby. When we heard it was a 45-min. wait, we decided to try Buckingham and we're glad we did.

I have eaten at Buckingham Smokehouse twice and the ribs were amazing. The sides they offered were even better: fried okra, sweet potato fries, fried cord, and many more to choose from. The staff is always welcoming and friendly!

There are many BBQ restaurants in Columbia, but I have to say that this one is the best. The owner is very very nice. All of the employees make you feel at home. The food is amazing and I never regret coming here.

All the meats are fixed well. Juicy. The baked beans are good with meat added for favor. The coleslaw has a bit of horseradich in it so there is a punch to it.

BBQ lovers differ in what "great" BBQ means. For my wife and I Buckingham's tops out list. Good and fast service with food that is consistent in quality.
