The owner (or manager) is most friendly, as are the waitresses. The barbecue beef sandwich was very bland, and not very hot. The horseradish cole slaw and sweet potato foes were okay, but also bland. My father-in-law gave the baby back ribs high marks, so...More

Friendly welcoming joint with a real smoker out back--and a pitmaster in bib overalls just like my farm uncle used to wear. Overwhelming portions. See our okra appetizer after we stuffed ourselves. Very meaty delicious ribs. Our new go-to place for bbq.

Ate here with a friend. Place was nice, server was friendly. Food was ok, horseradish coleslaw was yummy. Was a little disappointed that there were no burnt ends on the menu. I really liked the sauces, I thought the spicy was really good

My husband and I stopped in for a quick lunch. Fast service and good food. We shared a full slab of ribs and still had a half rack to bring home. Delicious! Well definitely be back.

Delicious food! Service was ok. You can get food to go or eat in. All the standards. The smoked baked potato is good. Where we sat, there was food on the wall and we found that a bit unappetizing.

Buckingham's is my comfort food! A turkey sandwich and fries with some BBQ sauce . . . can't beat it! I miss the central Columbia location, but their south location is so much easier to get in and out of. Glad they kept the drive-through....More

I always get the 1/2 smoked chicken with horseradish coleslaw and sweet potato waffle fries. I changed it up today for lunch with mom and chose a 1/2 slab of ribs with regular fries and baked beans. Food was awesome, as usual. I can't remember...More

Getting a half rack of ribs and two sides. Always great service and easy to get too. One has a choice of chicken, pork, sausage and brisket. I never get tired of Buckinghams.

Mark and his staff consistently deliver the best in smoked meats--pulled pork, brisket, turkey and sausage--at reasonable prices. The service is usually as fast as any fast-food restaurant. Their coleslaw and fried okra are the best you can find anywhere. They also offer sweet potato...More
