I live approximately 90 minutes from the closest Maurice's BBQ. Anytime I visit Columbia, Maurice's BBQ is definitely first on my list of eateries. Luckily, today is going to be one of those days! Like pizza, hot dogs, and many other foods, how one likes their BBQ varies by person, state, and region. Personally, I'm not a fan of Memphis... More

Ordered the pork BBQ, beef brisket, and Carolina hash. Beef brisket was the best out of the three. Good flavor but a bit on the fatty side. The pork BBK was different than any other place I've had it. I would say the pork BBQ is slightly above average. However, I would recommend the pork BBQ as it is different... More

I love this bbq sauce! I had the saucy chicken and my husband had the little joe pulled pork sandwich. The staff are so friendly. We bought a couple of bottles of bbq sauce to take home with us! I love that you can order the sauce online to be shipped to your home.

Let me start by saying that I am not the biggest fan of mustard based barbecue sauce, but I will eat at Maurice's every time I'm in Columbia. Eating there is more of an experience than a meal. You have to look past the decor of the location and really immerse yourself in the experience. The staff are super friendly... More

I was visiting the area with my cousin who loves their food, so we went to their tiny location to dine in....I'd never been there before, but I love ribs and saw on their outside sign something about a rack of ribs. I told the lady at the counter (who seemed like she was new) that I'd never been there... More

Traveling through and saw the sign on the interstate. Drove the 1.3 miles only to find a mustard based bbq (not tomato, not vinegar) which was very bland. One of the sides was hash with rice. I thought that being so different , it must be a specialty. It was bland too. The hush puppies weren't that good either. It... More

Thois location seems to be primarily suited to drive-thru and carry out. Recommend avoiding the restrooms - there are a little sketchy. The pork & brisket are good. Are red tomato based sauce and a yellow mustard based sauce are available.

Every time we travel to SC, we stop at Piggy Park for dinner or lunch. So good! Love the Joe Jr sandwich and the hush puppies are the best. My son loves the sliced beef sandwich and a side of potato salad The hand made onion rings are so very good. I just love their sweet tea! YUM-O

If you want some of the best mustard sauce style barbecue you'll ever taste. This is not the typical tomato based BBQ. It's very good, but they need to keep it cleaner. Have been to other locations which were just fine.

The sauce is mustard based which is not my taste, That said, there is a lot of good food to enjoy. The beef brisket is smoky and delicious. The fried okra is the real deal. You have to try this local favorite.
