“Fabulous Beef Brisket!”
Reviewed March 17, 2012

Friends had introduced us to Maurice's earlier, so when we were traveling through the Columbia, SC area, we thought we'd stop for lunch and have some barbeque.

This restaurant is very clean and the service personnel were all friendly and most helpful -- asking if we needed anything else, giving us a brochure when we asked about the other locations, and selling us some extra sauce to take home.

But the real draw here is the terrific beef brisket. It's not that stringy overcooked stuff you get at other BBQ restaurants. There was little or no fat and the meat was tender. The restaurant only serves their original flavor "mustard-based" South Carolina BBQ sauce, but they do have hot sauce if you want to bump it up a notch.

We'll definitely stop again.

“Average”
Reviewed November 7, 2011

The outside is a nice eye catcher. The menu is a good size & the prices are about average. The exception to that is this is fast food & the prices are more of a sit&eat. The staff was very welcoming &
Friendly. The food was only average. I would have liked to have more bbq sauce choices- the mustard reminds me more of a honey mustard then bbq. Overall- very average

“Great South Carolina BBQ!”
Reviewed June 22, 2011

If you are a fan of the typical German influenced mustard BBQ sauce then Maurice's is excellent. The chopped pork was lean and the hickory smoked flavor was perfect. We enjoyed it so much that we got 5 lbs to take home with us!
