Dining options: Outdoor Seating
Description: Traditional slow-cooked, hand pulled pork, smoked chicken and ribs. We are a small family run, veteran owned business. No frills - just good food. The kitchen is outside in the "caboose" and orders come over through the window. Some people question us using plastic and carry out containers - it is a DHEC regulation for us because we are on a septic system and subject to water usage amounts. Most of our customers don't mind the carry out containers but we are trying to figure out a way to use plates and silverware....always a work in progress.For now - "BBQ GOURMET IN A TAKE OUT TRAY"

Super clean inside. Enjoyed their little salad bar. Nice lady taking my order! Not crowded, not a long wait for food. Food was ok.

Choo Choo BBQ Xpress does barbeque. It's not fancy, as the tables are unadorned and the outdoor seating overlooks the road. There is a real caboose where the cooking happens, and there are trains running around the inside seating area. You get plastic dishes, but at least the glasses for alcohol are glass. This is not a place for environmentalist types, between the plasticware and the meat-heavy menu. But you're likely not looking for that.
Anyway, how's the meat? Good. Very good. I had the rib tip sandwich, and the rib tips had an excellent smoky flavor. They weren't the best ever, but they were near the top. Unfortunately, the provided sauce is only average; I hope the owners think about an upgrade here.
For sides, I had average green beans (which have meat, but need more flavor) and some potato chips. There's a light BBQ seasoning, which is tasty but not overwhelming. More interestingly, they're fried on-site, I believe. I liked them quite a lot.
Service is the traditional friendly for the south, and the prices are fair. If you're looking for BBQ around Bluffton, this is a strong contender.
