When it comes to BBQ in SC, Dukes is one of the most important family names.
You will find a number of Dukes restaurants scattered throughout the Lowcountry of South Carolina; however, Dukes is not a franchise or a chain despite what many people may assume. Each of the restaurants is loosely connected, but they are all separate entities.
