Best BBQ I've had in ages. No frills, excellent, fall-off-the-bone pork. Set in a charming area of shops, restaurants and bars in blufton. Make an evening or afternoon of it. We had a late lunch and were able to skip dinner.

You won't regret this place. Owner works the prep area and clearly genuinely cares about his customers and food quality. Ribs literally fall off the bone...seriously. pulled pork is stellar, remarkable, etc. Did I mention they care about everything?

The delicious bbq and the laid back atmosphere (with very entertaining signs) made this a perfect stop on our way out of Hilton head. TJ's homemade sauce is amazing...taking a jar home with us. Fresh cut fries were great too.

A lot of food for the money. Meat literally came clean off the bone. Ribs, fries and beans were very good! Staff was super friendly and helpful.

I loved the chicken. It was perfectly cooked and the rub was delicious. My husband had the ribs and they were great too. Greens were a bit salty for me. Would definitely recommend this place.

I have eaten there several times in past 90 days. The food is consistently excellent, quick service, clean and friendly. Pit cooked over hard woods, by a Master. Ted Huffman Owner is a great American Patriot!
