Looking for one of those diamonds in the rough? Look no further than Flat Rock BBQ in Iva, SC.
Often because of the hours, many family-owned SC BBQ restaurants tend to keep, along with the time, patience, and nature of making real BBQ, many authentic restaurants are only open a couple of days a week.
Such is the case with one of the most recent additions to the Upstate, Flat Rock BBQ.
On the menu, you will find not only chopped pork, brisket, baby back and St. Louis-style ribs, and smoked chicken, you can also choose from smoked kielbasa and smoked salmon. Heck, there is even some alligator sausage on the menu.

These guys won’t be a secret for long and you want to get there before the crowds start to grow.

Dis place is smok’n! No doubt this man is one of country’s finest BBQ chefs as his menu continues to tickle my palette.
Tonite the feast was on the lite side…with just sides. Swwwwwweet potatoes..my oh my. And broccoli salad was nothing shy of fantastic.
The Brunswick stew is chunky and savory for this cold nite and the fried corn…well it’s just off the cob! I did steal a couple of my wife’s ?…dang.
Will be back..maybe tomorrow. Thanks for a great evening.
