Best BBQ I've had in ages. No frills, excellent, fall-off-the-bone pork. Set in a charming area of shops, restaurants and bars in blufton. Make an evening or afternoon of it. We had a late lunch and were able to skip dinner.

The delicious bbq and the laid back atmosphere (with very entertaining signs) made this a perfect stop on our way out of Hilton head. TJ's homemade sauce is amazing...taking a jar home with us. Fresh cut fries were great too.

A lot of food for the money. Meat literally came clean off the bone. Ribs, fries and beans were very good! Staff was super friendly and helpful.

I loved the chicken. It was perfectly cooked and the rub was delicious. My husband had the ribs and they were great too. Greens were a bit salty for me. Would definitely recommend this place.

I have eaten there several times in past 90 days. The food is consistently excellent, quick service, clean and friendly. Pit cooked over hard woods, by a Master. Ted Huffman Owner is a great American Patriot!
