People came in for many take out meals while we ate our lunch. Delicious brisket and I can see why it appears to be a local favorite! Yummy and priced well.

The pulled pork is awesome and the fries are excellent. The pork rinds were fresh and hot as an added bonus. The staff was super friendly and helpful. We will definitely stop here again if we are in the area.

Nothing fancy, small place in a strip mall. Friendly staff and awesome food. If he opened a place closer to the beach there'd be a line out the door during the season. I've had the brisket, pulled pork, mac and cheese and fries. All legit....More

Small spot in an out of the way section of MB. BBQ is excellent but especially good as they have unusual BBQ dishes like the “Phil Jackson”... BBQ served over excellent Mac and Cheese.. and their BBQ bowl over rice with jalapeños.

Thanks bud! Some of our best dishes are not ordered enough! We have some great, creative dishes. We encourage people to try something they can’t get at home. Get away from the tourist traps and enjoy great local food!!

Great food and plenty of it. My wife and I shared the Viking and had plenty left over for the next days lunch. Excellent staff and very friendly. Glad we tried it. All of the meat was delicious and the "cracklin's" were a great appetizer.

Thanks! We are in a tourist driven economy in Myrtle Beach. Everything is outrageously expensive, except the thousands of t shirts at every retail beach shop in Myrtle Beach. Our prices are very fair and have not gone up since we opened. Every other expense...More

No. I do offer a vinegar and mustard sauce, but 99% of what I serve is a tomato based sauce with a good amount of vinegar. We serve our bbq wet. Thanks Joseph
