TripAdvisor Review

On TripAdvisor, Henry Gurr from nearby Aiken, SC, believes Matthews Oak & Hickory BBQ deserves to be considered among the best in the state:

Matthew’s BBQ in Saluda SC, Is Among The BEST, for A Plate of Southern Hickory Smoked BBQ, with a side of BBQ ribs !!
I am very much into Southern Hickory Smoked BBQ, and the traditional “plate of BBQ”, with BBQ Ribs as a side. Over the years, I have experienced up to 30 different BBQ Restaurants all over the Southeastern USA.

So I can say, from long experience that Matthews’s BBQ, in Saluda SC, is authentic Southern BBQ, and is up there with the best of all these!!

My first visit to Matthew’s BBQ in Saluda SC must have been back on June 20, 2013. Since that first excellent experience, my wife & I have eaten excellent BBQ meals in Mathew’s Restaurant three times following.

On one visit, I purchased a very, very, large order of Take-Out BBQ for the Gurr Family Reunion near Brookville Indiana.

On my most recent visit 6 weeks ago, I purchased a large to-go meal and 2 pounds of BBQ Ribs, for my friends on my trip.

My plates of Southern BBQ, and take-out orders from Matthew’s BBQ, have always been excellent in all respects!! For these reasons, I will continue to go back to Matthew’s BBQ, whenever I travel anywhere near Saluda SC.

Mathews BBQ, although not fancy, has always been a clean, neat, orderly, and pleasant experience, in all respects. AND My experience well fits the positive reviews on this TripAdvisor page.
