Shorty and River were the absolute best waiters of all time. The food was spectacular. The chicken wings… the best I’ve ever had. Period. Hands down. Try the mixed drinks! I’d come back EVERY TIME I’m in Charleston.

Great indoor/outdoor spot, wonderful tunes and food, Shorty took the most wonderful care of us! Brings the energy, love. And passion that is good barbecue.

Shorty greeted us with a smile from the start! Pleasant, upbeat and wonderful service. Knowledgeable of the beers on tap. Local brews are a must try! Impeccable BBQ, I shared a slider plate with my daughter for a quick, relaxing escape from the heat. Definitely...taking friends/family here for a dinner night soon.More

I just visited Charleston for the first time a couple of weeks ago for a girlfriend‘s 50th birthday party. Of all the restaurants we tried in the four days, Queology was by far the best. We are so thankful that our walking food tour took...us there. We even went back a second time before we left. We loved the food and we especially loved Shorty! His service was phenomenal and he was a whole lot of fun as well. I will definitely be returning to Charleston with my husband because he loves barbecue and I know he will also love Shorty!More

As I always do when we travel, I use TA to help me find great places to eat. And, as always, TA did not let me down. We had lunch at Queology and had the BEST ribs! They were so yummy and both sides (we...both had slaw and BBQ beans) were also excellent. Shorty was our server and he was EXCELLENT! He was so friendly and attentive. Highly recommend visiting Queology if you are in Charleston. You won’t be sorry!More

If you’re in Charleston and need a place to eat, whether you hate barbecue or not, come here to eat. The service, food, and environment is absolutely amazing. Shorty, the main man, is a must meet kind of guy. He’s charismatic and kind. Julian, who...served our table, was a wonderful server and always checked up on our table with efficiency and kindness. The food was even amazing. I eat wings all the time. They’re my favorite food. And this place does very well with their wings. Everyone at my table loved the food. I cannot stress this enough, this place is a must eat place.More

I'm usually not a chicken wing fan, but these wings were the best I've ever had! Pulled pork was also amazing and the fries were on point. Shorty is a great host!

This place had great atmosphere! Our server, a super fun guy called Shorty, greeted us and made us feel welcome right away. The food was delicious too! I'm often worried that pulled chicken won't live up to my expectations as at many barbecue joints they...don't even smoke it, just slather in sauces, and when it is smoked it's dry. Nor here! Chicken was beautifully moist and had a delicious smoky flavor. They know what they're doing!More
