“Good BBQ, huge portion size, great value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

I had a half rack of ribs, they were very meaty ribs. I do prefer mine sauced and these were just dry rubbed, not a great deal of flavour, fairly tender, but best I've had yet in the area. Their spicy table sauce is good, not really very spicy, but had a good tangy flavour. The sides, corn and slaw were fine too. Friendly people, good food, good value ... Definitely worth a visiting you're in the area.

“Best BBQ on the Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

Old South is quickly becoming our local favorite! Come as you are, this place is fairly small with indoor and outdoor dining - friendly people, great barbeque, delicious sides. We are very impressed with the consistancy of the food - always fresh. The sauces and rubs have complex flavor profiles that make it obvious - this crowd knows barbeque. My husband and I go at least once a week (although I think he sneaks over there more often). Be sure to try the incredible baked beans.

“Dont judge the book by its cover”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

Excellent ribs! Small restaurant with maybe 6 tables for 4 and a counter; was obviously a hotdog hamburger joint in a past life. As with most restaurants in the area huge portions, one of the first times I could not handle a full rack. Friendly staff with owner visiting tables on a regular basis to chat. Sauces are excellent along with the fries. Do not let the look from outside scare you into not trying this BBQ.

“What You'd Expect, but Even Fresher and Friendlier”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

We pulled in because of the big hamburger out front and stayed because the people were nice and prices were great.

My boyfriend ordered a 1/2 rack of ribs, and I had the pulled pork. I'm gluten free, so I asked the staff (including the owner, who couldn't have been nicer) about sauce ingredients and preparation of the pork. They weren't versed in gluten issues but were open to answering the questions I had.

Food came out fast, and portions were huge. Tea was sweet, slaw was crunchy. Their sauce was great; there were plenty of choices, but I stuck with the mild, vinegar-based, and it was super tangy and had nice heat to it as well. The restaurant was very clean, service was fast and friendly, and the smoker was going out front, so we knew our meal was fresh. A great Carolina BBQ experience.
