The BBQ and chicken were really amazing! You could taste the smoke flavor in the meat and the serving sizes were perfect for us. The sweet potato crunch is the best we have ever had! I wish I could have taken a platter of this stuff back with us. The cole slaw was not very good in our opinion as... More

We like a dry BBQ so we can add the sauce to our taste and this is hands down the best. We love all of it - have had the chicken, chopped pork and ribs. Best ribs any where! I often eat the meat without any sauce as the spices they use during the smoking process is good to me.... More

I used to live here and I haven't found anything as good anywhere else. This is the best barbecue around. The mustard sauce is fantastic. I'm not a fan of the chicken but the pulled pork and ribs are my benchmark for barbecue.

Great stop...took a relative who were visiting the area. They were blown away. Everything was especially outstanding on this visit. Only negative was the lack of SPC late in the evening on a Saturday night. Still our go-to for BBQ in the Greenville area. Not a thing to dislike about it and the prices are amazing!

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.
