This place "reeks" in a great way of being a local hang-out. It is an old gas station turned Barbecue Joint. The location is right at the airport, a busy traffic roundabout and next to a liquor store. You can sit outside or inside, all the while smiling the wonderful smells of the food cooking on the smokers. The menu is very varied and offers great alternatives to pork. Enjoy!!!

Amazing that a local spot that looks like an old gas station and cooks out front while you sit on picnic tables can be do good. But it is the real deal. Moist and tender pulled pork, great sides (especially the fried green beans!) and honest friendly service insures we stop every time we travel into the area. The ever present line moves quickly.

We stay an extra day just so we can eat at Southern Soul Barbeque.

Southern soul is absolutely down home delish... You can smell it from blocks away and pulling up and seeing the smoker outside just wets your tastebuds knowing what is to come!!! Their pulled pork, brisket and smoked turkey are absolutely mouth watering... The staff is very friendly and eager to make your southern BBQ experience fantaboulous! Their potato salad is amazing, and they are very kid friendly as well.. LOVE this place!!!!

We followed the lead of other reviewers and we were not disappointed. We built up a good appetite after visiting Pier Village shops and sites. The jumbo-sized orders of BBQ and large glasses of unsweetened ice tea, southern slaw and lots of paper towels on the table did the trick. We mainly used the GA sweet sauce but sampled the other sauces, some a bit spicier on some of the meat. We sat inside in order to read the numerous write-ups from newspapers and magazines and watch the locals come in for takeouts. The outside tables are undercover but next to the parking area and busy highway so noise and exhaust fumes would not add flavor to the BBQ. Have had lots of good BBQ in Carolinas and especially in Madison,VA that come close but this was tops.

Southern Soul is a great experience all around. Excellent BBQ (and great smoked chicken salad, too) and good selection of sides (fried okra was great). Casual atmosphere and family style seating at picnic tables outside. Lots of BBQ sauces to pick from (liked the hot and spicy). Friendly wait staff capped off the fun dining experience with "to go" cups for our drinks.
