We stopped at Bucky's Roper Mountain Rd. location recently when we were in the area on family business. This is a simple restaurant where you order and pay at the counter. The Bar-B-Q was chopped in front of us and served on foam plates at the counter. Portions were ample. The Q was served with no sauce. Sauce was available in bottles on the table for those desiring it. Each plate came with two sides and drink for $7.99. My wife had a "light" plate but she saw no difference in portions from the regular plate I had. Indoor and outdoor seating is available. We were fairly impressed with the quality of the food. The value is excellent. We will most certainly return.

My wife and I stopped here the other day as we had read good reviews about this place. When you walk in you seat yourself and when ready walk up to the counter. Two men then take your order and fix your plate right there in front of you. I ordered the 3 rib special with cole slaw and baked beans. The ribs were the finest, most tender ribs I have ever had. Just the right amount of smoky flavor and fall off the bone goodness. My wife had the pulled pork bbq sandwich with cole slaw and potato salad. Her sandwich wasn't as good as my ribs as it had a lot of fat in it and didn't taste as good as she thought it should. The salads were piled high and the drinks were serve yourself. Nothing special here, just good old home bbq.

On a sisters trip to N. Carolina, we found this BBQ in S. Carolina heading back to the airport!
Thank you internet.
Wow, what a treat.

Best ever!
Falling off the bone ribs, pulled pork & chicken....so good!
two kinds of BBQ sauce... both great!
Really great slaw, sweet potatoes and Cajun beans.

Yeseree Bob, this is the real deal.

The price was low for the quality & quantity of the food.
No fancy digs but added to the whole experience.
Business men all dressed up for work, the truck drivers, locals, young & old just enjoying.

The kids who worked there are great.
One of the guys let us look into their smoke room.
It was like taking a good perfume back to the airport with us.
People commented on how they were drooling for BBQ after getting a whiff of our smoky smelling clothes.
If you get a chance, go to Bucky's, you won't be disappointed.

We stopped here on our way home from FL and were not disappointed! Don't be discouraged by the decor. It is definitely a no frills local joint, but the food was outstanding. We had the ribs, chopped pork, chicken, cucumber salad, cole slaw, beans and sweet potato crunch. Every item was equally good and the service was very pleasant. If we are in this area again we will definitely return!
