Oh yeah!! My wife and I were staying on Hilton Head Island. We heard about Bluffton BBQ through a local that we met randomly on a golf course. The spice rub and BBQ sauce on his ribs are amazing! Rib meat fell off the bones and melted in our mouth. We ordered Mac and Cheese and potato salad to go... More

Went with a group of seven for lunch. Good food and friendly service. I had a half-racks of ribs which was fall off the bone tender, somewhat over seasoned for my taste (Dry rub and served with bbq sauce already on), but still very good. Everyone else said their food was very good also. All of the sides we had... More

Managed to catch this place when it was open on a Saturday for lunch. Very cool place...small, but has inside and outside seating. The inside is covered in smart and funny signs. This place is definitely full of character. We ordered a whole chicken and a pulled pork sandwich for the three of us after reading reviews on TripAdvisor that... More

Ok, you can get "barb-B-Que" anywhere but you can't get Bluffton BBQ anywhere but Bluffton BBQ! Ted Huffman does the best BBQ around, hands down.

So lucky to have found a restaurant open the night before the hurricane hit, but even more lucky to have the opportunity to eat here. Let's start with the good. BBQ was some of the best I have ever had. The sweet tea was fabulous. French fries were very tasty. What you need to know is that they are open... More

My wife, mother and I drove over from Hilton Head to visit Bluffton and go to a family restaurant. Although the reviews were good we weren't sure what to expect. We weren't disappointed. The staff (likely family) that worked at the restaurant were incredibly polite. The restaurant is in a building that looks really old with indoor and outdoor seating.... More

We stopped here with the family and were pleased. You order your food at the counter and sit and eat. They don't even charge for the beer. This area in the town of Bluffton is really cute. The food was good and very reasonable expense. Great place to feed a family.

Don't expect an upscale place. Don't expect long lines. And Don't expect it to always be open. For a restaurant, they have the most unusual, flexible hours imaginable. How they manage to stay in business in this trendy area behooves me. Guess it's bc when you DO catch them open, you gratefully go in hungry for the BBQ , bc... More
