Food was so so, sandwich was dry and coleslaw was different from any I have had before. Nice simple place to eat. Food was not what everyone raves about. Typical 3 star BBQ joint.

You have to love Bluffton BBQ if you like good BBQ and funky places. The place feels a bit like you have stepped back into the 1960s. It's a three person operation- Ted in the kitchen , order at the counter, grab your own ice...More

This place is the opposite of pretentious. It's all about the BBQ and the food is great. It's a small, order from the counter kind of place. There are about a half dozen pub height metal tables and the decor is tacky sheek pigs.

My family has been coming to HHI for years but we have never had the time to stop in Bluffton. We planned to arrive early to have lunch and explore before heading on over to the HHI. We choose to stop here after reading reviews!...More

This place knows what it's doing and does it well. No frills but lots of humor and good-natured people. If you're looking for some upscale place, this is not it. No frills & great food. And the best Collard Greens I've had in years.
