KJ’s Wings and Ribs on Broad St. is your next stop for Sumter’s best wings, ribs, and more. While it may have that “hole in the wall” type of feel, KJ’s reputation is first-class.

On the menu, you’ll find individual items like a rib sandwich, sausage, wings, and chicken. In addition, KJ’s offers dinner plates with those meats along with 2 sides.  

Sides include hash and rice, green beans, and fries. Water and soft drinks are also available.

For the uninitiated hash and rice is an authentic SC BBQ original that you won’t often find outside of South Carolina. KJ’s hash is some of the best around.

If you’re a local, you already know. If you’re from out of town and want to sample an SC BBQ original, check out KJ’s.

Great food. You will not be disappointed.

Be prepared to get something than what you’re craving because things get sold out quickly. Sometimes you have to wait but it’s soooo worth it.

A true hole in the wall, the food is pristine.

The hours are a bit inconvenient for me but if you remember them you’ll be good. A must-try for the Sumter area.
