“The 1st Family of Mustard-Based Barbecue!”

A South Carolina tradition since 1939, Melvin Bessinger’s Bar-B-Que Restaurants are beloved and famous for the best St. Louis style pork ribs, chicken and “All Ham” Bar-B-Que in the South. But don’t take our word for it, come on down and experience the flavor at either our Mount Pleasant or James Island location.

  • We serve pulled pork BBQ, cooked 24 hours on hickory wood coals!
  • Voted Best in Charleston for 10+ years!
  • Our Cheeseburgers are the best in America according to Emeril Lagasse and People Magazine
  • Ribs and Brisket are incredible, too!
  • Our Onion Rings look like big golden donuts – and taste so good! They come in “Baskets” and people crave them!
  • More than ten Southern sides to enjoy
  • Hand Spun milkshakes as well!

Wednesday night is Kids Night – 1 kid eats free with each paying adult!

Enjoy this interview with David Bessinger.

The SC BBQ Association deems Melvin’s as 100-mile BBQ, BBQ so good it’s worth driving 100 miles for.
