RIDICULOUS!!!! Was told that the chicken tenders were HUGE. Does this look huge to you? Hair in with the food and fries were so soggy. Tasted like they had sat there all day. Has gone so down hill and they have gotten stingy with the...to go sauces it was like pulling teeth to get some extra sauce.More

We stopped at Due South for dinner while traveling along 81. It's a very casual place that has live music from time to time. It appears that most of the business is take out as the dining area was almost empty. Orders are taken at...the register and food is brought to the tables. We both had pork sandwiches, which were good but not great. There was a nice portion of meat that was tender but a little dry. The sauces helped. The sides were good, especially the banana pudding. The staff were very nice.More

Pork, brisket, potato salad, baked beans, slaw, okra...all wonderful. Dining room is quite homey. It's wonderful when they have live music. During our most recent visit, we enjoyed the "Trough" and the "Big Slop." And the white chocolate raspberry cheesecake. Wonderful experience.

We haven't been in a couple years, but the food was just as fantastic! We always order a platter that comes with 2 sides and we get four different sides and share them. The sweet potatoes are sooooooooooo good! Heck, who am I kidding, it's...all so good! If you like BBQ, you will not be disappointed. They have a good variety of sauces so everyone should be able to find one and they are great.More

Bbq was good and plentiful. There were several choices of sauces to choose from which were on the table. The sides seemed small. However good. Besides the bbq, I really liked the hushpuppies, however small. I should have ordered an extra side of them.

Awesome place for anyone and especially travelers looking for REAL food! I ordered the number 3 special with no bun and their sauce. If you have a pup there are free pig ears with your meal. Staff was happy to be there which was displayed...in their service. Would go back anytime.More

Those were easily the worst ribs I have ever had in my life. Ribs that have been “smoked” should have some char to them. Ribs are not supposed to be served cool. Baby back ribs are supposed to be tender and fall off the bone....Especially if they have been SMOKED properly. These ribs were like biting into rubber. Really sad and maybe you just had an off day but I honestly couldn’t imagine messing up a rack that badly if I was trying to. Unacceptable given the prices you charge. Everything else was satisfactory. Not great and definitely not worth the prices charged. But it was decent. The ribs however were so appalling, combined with the fact of everything being way overpriced for what it is, honestly I don’t think I will even give this place another try. I would seriously not be able to charge people that much for the ribs you provided with a straight face. That is just embarrassing guys.More

We had pulled pork sandwich and a half rack of ribs. Both were tender and moist. The restaurant is very casual. Staff is as very helpful.

Very expensive in my opinion. And no place to sit. The barbecue was good but really not worth the money.

We have eaten there soon after they opened several years ago and were very pleased. what happened. They bar-b-que had no smokey taste and was full of fat. the "smokey" potatoes were soggy and tasteless as well. even the sauce was watery. Everything was lukewarm....A peak into the kitchen revealed that the guy preping our food was not wearing a mask at all! Never again.More

I have never had that experience. I do know from my own experiences smoking meat that you sometimes come across a bad rack of ribs. I'm certain the staff would have accommodated your request for a replacement had this issue... More
