What Folks are Saying about Southern Barbecue

Google Review

Author of over 50 reviews, Bryanna Rusher, one of Google’s Local Guides, wears her Southern Barbecue love on her sleeve. Just look at all the glowing Google reviews:

Anytime I get within 30 miles of this place I make a beeline for the best BBQ in the south.

The owner trained in Lexington NC and the BBQ is equal to or superior to any I’ve had in NC. The service is somehow even better than the food.

BBQ Plate

I wear my Southern BBQ T-Shirt with pride at home in GA. Make sure you order it right, sauce on the side, topped by slaw, and have a chili slaw dog with it.

Yelp Review

Over on Yelp, Chris W from nearby Gaffney makes sure to stop in to Southern Barbecue when he’s in the area:

This is probably my favorite place for bbq, even though I don’t get a chance to eat here often.

For starters, my favorite is their chopped sandwich with slaw and a side of the fresh hush puppies.

No matter when I stop in, this place is always packed with customers but nonetheless I always feel like I’m the only customer because of the eager and prompt wait staff who is always friendly and ready to serve.

This business is attached to a gas station, but once you have a seat inside, you will forget about the location.

Back to the food, the BBQ is always fresh with a very good smoked flavor the ideal southern smoke BBQ flavor, never dry always juicy.
