Have been eating at brown's barbecue as long as I can remember. I am a big fan of the fried chicken, candies sweet potatoes, Mac and cheese and chicken and rice. My husband loves the barbecue Mac and rice. Stop here when in South Carolina. Prices are reasonable. Highly recommend every time

When we arrived at Brown's we were worried about how long it would take to get through the buffet line, because the parking lot was packed and we could see a ton of people standing up inside. Fortunately, when we entered, we discovered that it was a private group and they were not ready to get in line. We purchased... More

I've been eating at Brown's for years, but not recently, and was wondering if it still had it. We were there with a large party after church and found it to be busy and as delicious as I remembered. Served buffet style we 'pigged' out.There are many choices of vegetables including some of the best sweet potatoes I've eaten. This... More

This place seems to be known by everyone around SC. If you mention Kingstree, SC they ask about Browns. They have a large buffet with multiple types of meats and sides. They also have a salad bar, and a few desserts. It is still run by the Brown family, and has a large private room, if needed. They also cater... More

This is where the locals go after church on Sunday! Vinegar based bbq was tasty and there was turkey and dressing on the buffet. It was outstanding. I also enjoyed the mac and cheese and sweet potatoes. The fried chicken was delicious too. There was no salad bar on this day, as there were two dessert lines. I enjoyed the... More

There is plenty to choose from off the buffet. The food is good. Not such a relaxing atmosphere if that's what you're looking for. Kids playing and running in, out and around the bar.

This was the best barbecue I've ever had. I even bought extra to bring home. Everything was delicious. The buffet is not always my style, but trying the sweet potatoes, the cole slaw, and the greens made it worth it. I give it five stars for an in the "middle of no where" excellent food place.

Every time I was near Kingstree or Lake City S Carolina I make it a point to leave with a large carry out of ribs . The vinegar base is the best I've ever found - of course the recipe is a "family" secret - Don't ask for it - I did ! Great people .
