Love their BBQ but hate the location. The building is made of tin or so it seem as it is noise inside and not enjoyable to sit there and try to talk to someone. Most times only do the drive thru but we live North...More

Didn't like the place or the food here. The people who work here were super nice, but the food was not even average - fatty meat and lack of flavor.

I love getting out of my car and smelling the smell of the smoked meat. I always get the pulled pork and turkey for my meats and jump around on the sides, although the sweet potato waffle fries are a guaranteed repeat for me. My...More

This is one of my favorite places--anywhere, anytime. The sides are excellent, the portions large--and adjustable. The smoked meat is excellent. And, the service is generally friendly.

We stopped in for some BBQ---so good! Nice atmosphere, clean and friendly. Fast service. Ordered pulled pork, brisket, and the sloppy joe with fries, coleslaw, mac/cheese and texas toothpicks. Very good -- looking forward to visiting again when we are in town.

Service and atmosphere were good. Brisket barely had a smoke ring, no bark, and little flavor. It was tender though. Half chicken was ok. Both meats probably spent more time in an oven than a smoker imo. Grease temp for their fries is probably about...More

We had lunch here while visiting Columbia. The ribs were great, good sauce and not over cooked. They give you a very generous portion for both the full and half slab. Their side dishes were all very good. I had the potato salad and BBQ...More

Buckingham's is a pretty good BBQ place. Getting "great" BBQ every time is impossible; BBQ done right takes a like time to prepare, and you really don't know how MUCH to prepare. So, unless you roll a seven, you will get something passable, or something...More
