Dukes Bar-B-Que on Chestnut in Orangeburg

Dukes BBQ on Chestnut St. in Orangeburg, SC

“Wow, I’m so glad I took a chance!” writes Paige¬†F. on Yelp.

“The restaurant itself is sort of a run down hole in the wall type place, but we picked up their BBQ to-go platter and brought it back to the hotel.

“The Mac and cheese is unreal. The sauce was perfectly sweet and definitely a mustard base (which usually I don’t like-but trust me it’s amazing). If you’re in the area and are looking for good BBQ, try this place!”

When it comes to SC BBQ, Dukes is one of the most important family names. You will find a number of Dukes restaurants scattered around the Lowcountry of South Carolina. However, Dukes is not a franchise or a chain. Despite what many people assume, all of these locations are loosely tied by family connections, but they are all separate entities.

This article by Robert Moss reveals a bit about this family BBQ business and their history, going back to the original Earl Dukes restaurant in Orangeburg that started it all.

The SC BBQ Association has named this place one of the Top 100 BBQ houses in the state.
