Since I found this little gem, not long after it opened in the early 1990s, I have looked no further for "Q." The cooked-in flavor -- the right amount of "heat" and the vinegar-and-spice blend, are unique here in the Upstate, and none other compares....More

I travel a lot all over the south, from VA to FL and all over TX and LA and in between. The BBQ here was moist, smokey and very flavorful. They have different kinds for different palettes.

Circle M's BBQ pork is moist, a little bit spicy, & absolutely awesome. Their slaw has a vinegar base that pairs beautifully with their pork. The baked beans have sausage, pineapple tidbits & lots of other good stuff in them. The ribs & chicken have...More
