The BBQ ribs are outstanding. The sides, though a little pricy, are very good too. You can't go wrong with the hush puppies and cinnamon butter. True Southern cooking at its best.

WOW! I was so glad we found this little gem. We drove around one night for about 20 minutes trying to make a dinner choice. We ventured towards this end of the island after seeing the BBQ House on an app. It had good reviews and a variety of food offerings. Thank goodness for the app, it was not wrong... More

We were looking for a place to eat on a Monday night, two of the places we stopped were closed; we decided to try this BBQ place. Everything was really good, the ribs and bbq pork sandwich, slaw, hush puppies. And some of the most polite wait staff I've met!! All in all, extremely enjoyable.

Not a bad place if you want small portions and cheap prices for lunch specials. Bbq was a little dry and the sauces were not much to write home about.

They do a nice job of smoking their pork and chicken. Smoked wings rock. The smoked chicken breast is good but inconsistent in size and sometimes too dry but when it's good it's very good. BBQ pork sand rocks. Get it with white slaw and vinegar based sauce.

Excellent barbeque and friendly service tonight! Smokey pork with delicious choice of sauces served with homemade sides. No boxed macaroni and cheese or baked beans from a can here. Creamy mac and cheese was oh so good. Fresh hush puppies served with cinnamon sugar butter was a nice treat!

Easy location to find and a great spot for kids. They will love the mac and cheese!!!! Wings were cooked to perfection and the smoked meats were delicious. The beans could of had better flavor but the collard greens were very tasty. Tried the Cherry Cobbler for dessert with the ice cream and the kids were licking the bowls.

My wife and I had a great dinner there tonight. I had the BBQ salad, with blue cheese dressing. It was very good, and a tad more than I could eat, but I also had to leave room for the blueberry cobbler, which was fantastic. My wife got a BBQ sandwich, which was pulled pork, and remarked about how good... More

I came here not knowing what to expect. Loved the decor of the place simply functional. Menus are up by the paper towel holder along with all the sauces. Friendly waitresses made you feel at home. You can order sweet tea or half and half tea. The barbecue is out of this world! You just need to stop in and... More
