Description: A South Carolina tradition since 1939, Melvin Bessinger's Bar-B-Q Restaurants are beloved and famous for our St. Louis style pork ribs, chicken and "Best BBQ in Charleston". But don't take our word for it, come on down and experience the flavor at one of two locations, in Mt. Pleasant and James Island. Thank you for your continued support, y'all!

my family and I visit this BBQ restaurant every time we come to the area.... WOW this is a must... Not only is the BBQ amazing, the Hand-made battered onion rings are the BEST you've ever tasted, ANYWHERE...

We ate lunch at Melvin's, but had never heard of it before. We just ordered a BBQ sandwich and it was so good! We really relaxed in their laid back ambiance. We will definitely eat more meals here in the future!

Pulled BBQ was very dry as if it had been cooked a long time and been sitting under a heat lamp or reheated in a microwave. Hamburger was very thin and without much flavor, sides were meager in quantity and low in quality, prices were very high considering the meal. Our first visit will definitely be our last.
