After our haunted jail tour, Nicks was highly recommended by one of the tour staff. We're glad we went. We had riblets, pulled pork dinner and pork tacos. Everything was very tasty and reasonably priced. However, the STAR was the Lemon Pie! It had a shightly thicker crust and the meringue was more like thick whipped cream. The first bite... More

The pulled pork has a great smoked taste and is very lean. The mac and cheese is very creamy. The BBQ homemade chips are great.

Hubby and I decided to stop here to rest and eat before going back to the hotel for the night. I had the Dave Burger which was the best burger I had while visiting Charleston. Hubby got the BBQ plate and he said it was absolutely delicious. You get plenty of food for the price you pay. The cashier was... More

Good barbecue and reasonable prices. You place order at the counter and they bring the food to your table. Have been here several times and it's been consistently good.

This is one of our go to's when visiting Charleston. Nick's has a great assortment of meats to chose from, on this visit we had the turkey basket, with fries and mac and cheese. Their fries are hand cut and well seasoned, their mac and cheese is creamy and very cheesy. They offer both a regular and spicy tomato based... More

Nice atmosphere and nice location. I ordered ribs and they were over done. The mac n cheese was good. Sweet potato casserole was like Thanksgiving. My friend ordered chicken salad sandwich. it was average.

This isn't super authentic BBQ but it's pretty darn good. I had the pulled pork baked potato and that alone is why I'm giving it 4 stars because holy moley that thing was amazing. And I even had to order it without the cheese and sour cream. My husband said his brisket sandwich was good as well. The staff was... More

This smoke house offers a fairly good size menu. There are plates for most tastes. They offer salads, soup, chili, and many BBQ items. You place your order at the register and your food is brought to your table. Our meals were very good. The food was hot and it tasted great. It can get a bit noisy due to... More

While shopping downtown, we stopped for a cocktail and an appetizer. The Bloody Mary's are one of the best ever. We ordered an appetizer of BBQ chips that were delicious. The bartender, she was one of the best ever!!! We got some of the best advice for restaurants in town. The people who worked there are a cut above!!! A... More
