We stopped here for a quick casual dinner on our way back to our hotel the final night of our stay in Charleston. Everything was about as we expected. Casual, but still good, and not expensive.

Liked the 5 different rib options on the menu, very pleasant server, great cornbread..but food, ambiance and vibe were like any other chain restaurant. If you are looking for a more authentic experience seems like there are a lot better choices right nearby.

Delicious food. Service was good. Reasonably priced. Food was cooked to perfection - meat fell off the bone.

We wanted BBQ, so this place seemed perfect. We shared the rib platter for two which consisted of a variety which you can choose. They were delicious! They came with hush puppies, which I didn't think I would like, but were surprisingly good! Good drinks,...More

We visited while in Charleston. The BBQ was average. Not the best I’ve ever had and not the worst. The service was fine. I’m not sure why the place has the amazing ratings. Maybe it’s just us, but everything seemed simply average. They did have...More
