Duke's is one of Aiken's most popular BBQ buffets. The fried chicken and pulled pork are delicious. However the vegetables are rather bland and taste like they are from a can. Desserts are overly sweet and the ice cream machine is often out of order....More

I'm not sure why anyone would like these canned prepared foods. Also, the BBQ ribs were disgusting. I wouldn't go here again!!!
