What a great fine. Southern charm and goodness at its finest. Friendly staff, clean dining area and especially bathroom. Buffet had so many choices of food unable to taste it all. Still don't like rutabaga. Barbque tender and tasty (even better second go round when I found the sauce). Not to hot for my palate . We will definitely search... More

Go eat here. Southern style vegetable get a bad rap sometimes, and the cooking here fixes that. Everything was delicious and NOT overcooked as some folks fear. While the BBQ and fried chicken were great, I chowed down on the butterbeans, peas, greens, mac and cheese. the peach cobbler was delicious, too. If you go, it's all you can eat,... More

Staying in Savannah but drove up here for dinner. This is THE place for great food. Loved the okra and catfish, my husband loves the hash. Wish there was a place like this in Fl.

This Yankee does not know a lick about southern Bar-b-Q but I now what I like and what I taste. What I did like about this place is that it is totaly a local eatery. You can soak up some southern charm while trying some dishes that may be very foreign to northerners. This is an all you can eat... More

We recently had dinner at Duke's Barbecue. I really liked the atmosphere and location. The staff was really friendly and the food was really good! I really liked the ribs and fried chicken!! I highly recommend that you try it when in the Ridgeland area!!

My first time here and it was delicious. Great BBQ and awesome lemonade. My husband and I really enjoyed the food. My only complaint is that they should label the Sauses in bottles at the buffet, I put some spicy vinger stuff on mine thinking it was BBQ Sause but I drowned it in BBQ Sause once I realized it...
