It was recommended that we go to Bullies by the bartender at our resort. He said it was a local place, very simple in style but great food. He was right. We ordered a whole rack of ribs and split the ribs and sides. The owner made sure that we each had corn bread and all of the sauces. We enjoyed the food and would return there again. The dry rub had a little kick to it, but the Hawaiian sauce tempered it. Prices are very good for the amount of food.

Just so happens we went on a night they had a special on full racks so thought we'd try them. The dry rub used was very tasty, however the meat was dry from being overcooked, AND they didn't remove the silver skin on the back side of the slab. Anyone who cooks ribs knows that's a No No. This made the meat very tough to cut, eat, and chew. The sides of cole slaw, French fries, and collard greens were excellent. Will probably not go back, but if I do will try brisket, or chicken for sure. We've had better on the island. On a lighter side the people there were fantastic to deal with.

Few tables, but the food is good. We had the whole slab of ribs, and the dinner for 2-3. This was for 4 people. Be sure to get all the sauces in the small plastic cups.

Bullies is easy to pass by, and even if you notice it, you might think it can't be good, there are so few cars there. WRONG. This is a counter service restaurant, but the ribs and other meats are among the best ever. Prices are very reasonable, we went on $15 full rack night. Good sauces, the herb sauce was a hit with 5 out of 6 of us. Will surely go back!

My wife and I stopped in for lunch and a break from cycling on Hilton Head, we found a great BBQ joint. We had a pulled pork sandwich as well as a brisket sandwich. The pork was close to perfect, great smoke flavor and no sauce on the meat so you can taste the flavor of the pork than sauce it to your taste. Neither of the meats needed sauce but there were 5 different sauces to choose from, I preferred a combination of the sweet and spicy tomato based sauces. There was a vinegar sauce, a Carolina mustard sauce, and their signature sauce with basil, it was very tasty on the pork. The brisket was good, had a great flavor and good smoke ring, it was just sliced way too thin, very much like a fast food roast beef. The two sides we had were fries and collard greens, both were very good and worthy of reordering the next time we visit. We were told by the gentleman that served us that their ribs are what people love the most, didn't have a chance to try them but will definitely go back on our next visit and order them.
