Barbecue | Mount Pleasant, Charleston

"Delicious!" raves Food and Wine Magazine. "This barbecue joint really delivers on some finger-lickin' fun," exclaimed Marc Summers on The Food Network. And Bon Appetit magazine reports that our ribs are "juicy and fall-off-the-bone delicious."

We offer a nice comfortable, casual atmosphere, a great bar with a wide selection of local and craft beverages plus a variety of food options including grilled burgers and healthy salads. All of our meats are smoked on-site with real hickory wood to provide incredible flavor and an authentic southern barbecue experience. We also have awesome appetizers such as our award-winning hickory-smoked wings and the world famous onion loaf. We also offer a “cool kids” menu so have something special for everyone in your group.

And speaking of groups, we love them of all sizes! Please call us directly for parties of ten or more so that we can be sure to accommodate your party.

Discover Charleston

When you're in the historic port town of Charleston, you'll see an abundance of seafood. From the Low Country boils that include lobster and potatoes to shrimp and grits, there is a bit of everything for you to enjoy. Seafood restaurants are found on almost every corner and serve the freshest seafood possible as it's caught from the ocean on the same day in most cases. Another favorite dish that you'll find is fried chicken and waffles. Be sure to stop by one of the many souvenir stores in Charleston to get fresh fudge or a bag of saltwater taffy.
