So lucky to have found a restaurant open the night before the hurricane hit, but even more lucky to have the opportunity to eat here. Let's start with the good. BBQ was some of the best I have ever had. The sweet tea was fabulous....More

My wife, mother and I drove over from Hilton Head to visit Bluffton and go to a family restaurant. Although the reviews were good we weren't sure what to expect. We weren't disappointed. The staff (likely family) that worked at the restaurant were incredibly polite....More

We stopped here with the family and were pleased. You order your food at the counter and sit and eat. They don't even charge for the beer. This area in the town of Bluffton is really cute. The food was good and very reasonable expense....More

Once again, it's the best BBQ. The food here is always amazing. And as always the sweet potato casserole is to die for. We will continue to come here for great food and service.

The people are friendly, the service good and the location is great. The decor is fun and plenty of puns written on the menu and walls to make you smile. I really wish I could say the food blew me away but it just didn't....More

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.
