I have eaten at this restaurant three times. My first visit I had the bbq pork with vinegar sauce. I didn't care for it although my preference is vinegar based bbq. I got ribs with it and they were tough and definitely not fall off the bone tender. I got bbq pork again the second visit and I got it... More

Love getting takeout at least once a month from Belly's! We even get an extra pound of BBQ to put in the fridge for our 3 yr old son because he loves it so much :) Havent had anything bad yet!

This was 5th time we have eaten at Bellys. They even catered my wife's 50th, I mean 29th and every item is delicious! Their ribs, their pulled pork and every side we have ever had were fantastic. Highly recommend.

I visited this place for the first time and was overall pleased with my experience. The workers were very friendly and welcoming. The food was decent. I had the chopped bbq, hash and rice, baked beans, macaroni, and ribs. I wasn't a fan of the hash and rice. It was not what I was use to, but I really enjoyed... More

Like a previous reviewer stated it's more for pick-up / take-out. The food (we had BBQ pork sandwiches) was good and we will definitely come back for pick-up / take-out but probably won't eat there again. The staff was super nice. The cole slaw is a little different that traditional southern slaw but I liked it. It was kind of... More

First of all, be aware that this is mostly a take out place. There are 3 café tables, only room for 2 at each, and one small regular table which might seat 3. I had the smoked chicken sandwich, just OK although the mustard sauce was wonderful. Baked beans were above average, but the cole sale had green peppers in... More

when the spare ribs are right they are about as good as it gets anywhere. Tender. Juicy. Barky on the outside. A little peppery. Marrow trying to squeeze out the end of the bone. About 20% of the time they are tough, gray and flavorless. It hurts the pocketbook when you buy 2 or 3 lbs ($30) and you drive... More

I actually was going to the restaurant next door but they were closed. As we were leaving, we smelled the food from Belly's and went in. The owners were great! The food at Belly's is delicious! My kids love it and so do I. I had the ribs, which are a must have. Next time I'm in SC, I will... More

Heading to Virginia from Florida my son and I decided to look into BBQ restaurants along the way and found 100 best BBQ restaurants in South Carolina. Or, I'd drive 100 miles for this BBQ. Well, I wouldn't drive 100 miles for it but it was pretty good. The ribs were tasty though a touch over rubbed. The brisket excellent.... More
