I tried the sampler and absolutely loved the rub style, fall off the bone ribs. The chicken was a bit dry ( they gave me a breast ) but otherwise everything was delicious including the sides . Staff is welcoming & pleasant . I would definitely come again .

Went here on our way to Savannah and it was well worth the 5 minutes from the highway to get there. Side dishes were excellent! Pork was delicious and tender. Prices were very reasonable and included drinks. We would definitely come again!

Bucky's has the best ribs around. And, the selection of sides is awesome. Today I went with the rib snack plate, cole slaw and baked beans. Delicious! And the staff there is so friendly.

Bucky's isn't a fancy place but it has delicious food. Their BBQ and sides are terrific and at a great value. You get a choice of tea or lemonade to drink.

We were told the are 2 high ratings for bbq ... "worth the trip" and "100 miler" (meaning if you had to drive 100 miles to eat there, do it!). It is that. Nuff said. :-)

I am on the road 15 to 20 weeks a year and try to hit a local BBQ spot. This was a small homey feeling place and the BBQ had good smoke flavor and was plentiful. This was worth the stop and I would recommend it for a stop if you are in the area.

I grew up in Greenville and absolutely love Bucky's. Please open a location in Boston so that my new community can experience good BBQ.

When ever I think of BBQ I think of flavor. I think of smoked hickory wood. I think of Bucky's. Sure there are alot of places, Mike and jeffs, Henry's, Charlie's, etc. Buy nothing compares to Bucky's. I live near the one by Bob Jones but if I'm near roper Mt, I'm there. Ribs are to die for, pull pork... More

They nailed it. The BBQ is primo. They have service down, too. Lots of people go in there to eat but they keep the line moving. Their green beans are second to none. Better than I can make them at home.

Thank Lynn M
