The food is great, but bring an appetite. It had loads of vegetables and a variety of barbeque. There are plenty of sweets too for those who like their sugar. Friendly staff and the food stays at good temperature with loads of flavor.

Very affordable, 14.98 for a buffet. Excellent food, best barbeque I had for a lunch, pick among fried, grilled and pulled. Chicken, Pork. Drink, dessert coffee included. A pity that they are using disposable plates, cutlery. Otherwise a true southern old fashion barbeque experience

Pulled into Kelly's for a Friday evening meal. No one greeted us, nor was there any explanation as to the buffet process; not the clearest system to follow. Very disappointed to see styrofoam everything! The food was either cold when it shouldn't have been or so over cooked it was mush. Best thing of the entire meal was the strawberries... More

Took family from out of town for a great dinner at Kelly's. It is a buffet so there is no wait, lots of food and always good. Had three small children and there was plenty of variety for all. Great place to take a large crowd or just the two of ya.

I have not been for a while, so I decided to try it out and see if anything has changed. Fortunately, it has not. The location on 78 is convenient for both Summerville and North Charleston customers, which is why it has a good crowd on weekend days, but not very long lines. The "veggies" taste homemade and are always... More

Great welcoming environment. Appropriately heated buffet. Excellent brisket! The only disappointment was the absence of ribs on the bar. However, it is a decent local bbq restaurant.
