Interactive South Carolina BBQ Trail Map

Sharing is Caring!

Our interactive South Carolina BBQ Trail Map plots out the location of every BBQ restaurant in the state to make it easy for you to find the best place near you. If you’re looking for something specific like a mustard sauce or hash, our filters will show you the BBQ joints with exactly what you want.

      Search provided by WP Store Locator

      (Note: CALL AHEAD. Most of these restaurants are not chains and many are not open daily. Occasionally, the good folks who run these restaurants close early because they’ve run out of food or close altogether to go on vacation or to tend to other, more pressing business. If you don’t want to make a trip in vain, we strongly advise calling ahead.)

      Welcome to our interactive SC BBQ Trail Map, the easiest way to find all the SC BBQ restaurants near you, wherever you are.

      Looking for a restaurant on the South Carolina BBQ Trail?

      Wondering where all SC BBQ restaurants are near you, wherever you happen to be?

      Do you like the official SC BBQ Trail Map but wish it was clickable so you could easily find the barbecue restaurant you are looking for?

      This is the map for you.

      How does the South Carolina BBQ Trail Map work?

      When the map loads, the map will ask your permission to find your current location. If granted, the map will show you the closest 25 SCBBQ restaurants within a 100-mile radius.

      Your location will also be represented by a green marker on the map.

      If it cannot determine your location or if you choose to not allow the map to find your location, then you can enter your location into the search field and press “Search.” The map will then zoom in on your general location and show the restaurants in your search area.

      By default, the map will show you the closest 25 restaurants in a 100-mile radius; however, you can change the search criteria to suit your needs.

      Each restaurant will also be listed near the map, sorted by distance and will include an image of the restaurant itself.

      In addition, if you click More Info on any listing or click on any marker, you will be provided additional information about each restaurant including address, phone number, hours, and access to directions from your current location and street view.

      Help Make the Map Better

      We encourage comments on the map and its functionality in the comment section at the bottom of the page. We will do all we can to make this the best map for your SC BBQ Trail searches.

      SC BBQ Road Trip: A Restaurant Field Guide

      South Carolina barbeque has a long and special history.

      Our BBQ is both varied and abundant. In fact, anyone contemplating a road trip through the state could benefit from a guide to help them find all the offerings on the SC BBQ Trail within 10 miles of one of our interstate exits.

      To help our famished travelers, we published a series we call SC BBQ Road Trip. These articles serve as an SC BBQ Restaurant Field Guide that documents all the SC BBQ easily accessible from each of the interstates that intersect our state.

      If you love SC BBQ as we do, you will appreciate this guide.

      Hey, Jim. Thanks for the info, but Boogies was listed on the site and our map on Jan. 28, 2019. Can you not find it on the map? Here is the listing:

    • Jim Andrews says:

      Hey James. Please add Boogie’s BBQ in Hollywood to your guide and map. The address is 6270 State Hwy 162, Hollywood, SC 29449. Their phone number is (843) 564-1454.

    • James Roller says:

      Thanks. I thought I had pulled it from the map already. Double-checking now. Thanks again.

    • Mike Alexander says:

      Maurice’s in Santee has been closed for some time now.

    • William Griggs says:

      Need you to steer your group to mine brother’s Keeper plus I need somebody to organize a barbecue judging contest
      I believe I’m going to surpass 20,000 and 2 stages

    • James Roller says:

      Thanks for the heads up, Mike. Sorry to hear that. They had a rough start with a fire and had to rebuild. Must have been too much. I will remove them from the map. Thanks again.

    • Mike says:

      Smokin’ Oaks in Beaufort has closed

    • James Roller says:

      Hey Mike! We definitely want to get you listed. I actually thought we had reached out to you recently about just that, but darned if I can find it. I will message you on your Facebook page. Thanks!

    • Hi, James.
      We own and operate KC Mike’s Smokin’ (we’d fit right in for that ‘dry rub’ filter!) here in Beaufort, SC. I would love it if you’d add us to the BBQ trail map! Our restaurant address is 81 Sea Island Pkwy, Beaufort SC 29907 843-379-BEST (2378) Soon our website will be updated with the restaurant info and a menu, but our FB page has that already. Come see us!

    • James Roller says:

      Dang. Thanks for the heads up. Fixed it and owe you a rib. Welcome to the site….and let me know if you find anything else!

    • Gus Philpott says:

      This is my first visit to this site. Immediately noticed a typo in the Filter, where Restaurants is spelled “Restuarants” on the online Trail Locator Map page. Do I get a free rib?

    • James Roller says:

      Guiyion, we added KBBQ to our map and published your store listing on 4/1/18. Here is a link to your listing: And if you are using the map, as long as you are near the restaurant, it should pop up automatically if you give the map permission to find your location. If not, just search for your zip code and you should find it there. When I type in Spartanburg, SC and click the Find SCBBQ button, I get KBBQ as the fifth closest listing in my results.

    • You reached out to us here at KBBQ a few months back and we have periodically checked your website to see if we were listed. Unfortunately, it does not list us each time we check.

    • James Roller says:

      Hey Sean, Thanks for writing and letting us know. As I have said many times, unfortunately folks aren’t required to get our permission to open or close a BBQ restaurant in SC, so we have to learn about new places through research and word of mouth. Happy to add you. Thanks again.

    • Sean says:

      We own and operate Uncle Quincy Smokehouse in Union SC 29379
      How do we get added to the trail?

    • James Roller says:

      Not quite yet. When we are able to select more than one filter at a time, maybe, but for now I felt like I needed to keep the list of filters at a manageable number. As a result, I chose to leave a number of criterion out. Stay tuned and thanks for asking!

      No filter for dry rub?!?

    • jroller says:

      Thanks, GM. We used to travel right by there for years when traveling from Georgetown to see family in Camden. Never knew it was there. I am adding it to the map now.

    • GM says:

      one to try: Campbell’s Quick Stop in Sumter County

    • James Roller says:

      Need to add Swig and Swine. Thanks for the heads up, David
