Take a few mins more, say 7 minutes, to reach this spot. Nice family atmosphere (very cool dining area and FRIENDLY) and the food is ridiculously good. Love it all but the Brunswick stew alone is enough to get me there. Get here!!

Smoking pig is worth getting off 85 for. Great Bbq right next to Clemson. Order at the front and grab a seat. The can handle the crowd too with a comfortable outside waiting area. Service is great too. Don't miss this Clemson favorite!!

I'm not sure about the details but I've had their catering on numerous occasions (most recent experience was Dec 2016) & have never been disappointed! it's always busy so I think the sooner you contact them, the better.
