About a mile North off I-95. Buffet was well stocked. Wife liked the fried chicken, I was more impressed with the pork ribs. Sweet potato casserole very very good. We were there during the after church crowd.

The fried chicken on the buffet was so moist and tender that it almost melted in your mouth! The vegetables were fresh and the macaroni and cheese was loaded with cheddar cheese and was the best I had eaten in a long time. There was such a variety on the buffet and everything I tried was tasteful.

Every time I head to South Carolina to visit family I have to stop and enjoy the best southern bbq known to man!!! Wish they still sold the sauces in my local store (which they haven't for a while now) I bring a cooler and load up!!! Writing this is making me crave some right now!!!!!!

The ribs here are to die for! They are a bit smoky and tangy and have LOTS of fall-off-the bone meat. The hash & rice is always perfect and their fries are always super crispy. The buffet is good, but they didn't have it this time.

For all the signs you see and for how famous 'Piggie Park' is to the Columbia area... I was kind of shocked at how mediocre the product was. Fries weren't anything special. I will admittedly say I'm not the biggest fan of mustard based BBQ. Their sauce is ok for what it is but the meat seems to have no... More

In the 60s, my father took us here a couple times on the way to Florida. I've been stopping at this location as an adult on my own travels for 30 years. Looking back it has been slowly slipping over the past decade. The counter girl was pleasant (they always are) and the tea was as good as always. My... More

Good pulled pork, sides were ok. I would say the barbecue was slightly above average. Not many options in this town.

We pass thru West Columbia on our way to Charleston and always try to stop here for lunch. Maurice's is consistently great good and quick too. We order at the counter and within minutes they are bringing it to our table. I ordered the little joe combo with a sweet tea. The sweet tea is the real deal, brewed not... More

The barbeque is consistently good, the hash and rice was very flavorful. The service was adequate, at first it seemed like we disturbing them. We were the only ones in the restaurant, and they did become more attentive.
