What a great place-outstanding barbecue and wonderful people! And, as if the barbecue weren't enough, great fried chicken and potato salad to boot. Worth a stop. I know I'll be back!

What a great find outside of Charleston for BBQ. A little dive of a spot with the friendliest staff and clientele. To top it off was the fantastic southern food. Snobs should stay away, because the charm of this place will be lost on you. Will definitely come back next time we are in the area.

Arrived here around 2:45 pm for a very late lunch during a trip to FL. The first impression was a little off-putting, with "No Credit Cards - Cash Only" and "Hand Up Cell Phones" signs outside. Please, don't let this stop you from going inside. Restaurant was empty, staff was cleaning up to close. We had the buffet, which consisted of pulled pork, pork hash (a new one on me), fried chicken and a couple of sides. We probably could not have come at a worse time for food quality, right at the end of the day, but most of the food was really excellent in spite of this. The pork was excellent quality, still juicy and a nice vinegar-based sauce. The hash was chopped-up pork with BBQ seasonings, and scrumptious. Fried chicken was crispy, and I'll bet it was juicy if we'd been there at a reasonable hour. But the best part was meeting the folks at McCabes, friendly, chatty, inquisitive and really good people. Will definitely stop here again next time we pass through.

McCabe's is a small, unassuming restaurant that we wouldn't have thought of visiting if we hadn't read the reviews. I'm so glad we took a detour and ate there! There are sandwiches and plates on the menu or you can order the buffet. We ordered the buffet and were blown away by the excellent quality of all the foods. Among the offerings on the buffet were BBQ, potato salad (the best I've had in years), cole slaw, cabbage, rice, and greens. At just under $9.00/person it's a good deal.

The staff was very welcoming too. They treated everyone like old friends. The restaurant is small and neat.

You need to know two things when you go: you must pay in cash and you must turn off your cell phone in the restaurant. The cell phone rule makes sense when you realize how small the building is.

Stopping at McCabe's was one of the best decisions we made on our vacation. We're telling everyone about the place and plan to go back next time we're in the area.

The BBQ was delicious and there were many choices for side items. The flavor of their BBQ sauce was good, and there was just the right amount of it! The iced tea is good, too. Wish we had bigger stomachs!!
