This is the first review I have ever left but I just had to let people know how good this barbaque is. Ive been eating at this resturant probably close to 20 years. When people say its the best, its true. It really is the best and I have yet to eat barbaque anywhere else in years. I wish the family owned business would consider franchise opportunities. I promise someone would take them up on that offer. Ive been thinking about that for years b/c Im scared that they will close.lol If your ever in town you should def take the drive and try the food, its the best in the world.
The hash!! Is a treasure not approached anywhere. The sides are not epicurean but how folks make them at home. The pulled pork is finely chopped moist and does not need a sauce, vinegar/smoke make it a classic.
I lived in NE (New Ellenton) when the place opened in 1969 in an abandoned storefront.
Lived all over the US and some foreign countries. If I had to make a choice about a last meal, this would be the place (don’t tell my mother)
I have been all over this country, never have I come across a better plate of bar-b-que. The hash is unique to the south so it is highly recommended you try this also. Spend the time if you can to eat inside, a few dollars extra gets you an all you can eat buffet. If anyone can find a better plate of BBQ anywhere in this country, let me know.
I was fortunate to live in the area for about 7 years. During this time Carolina BBQ was all I knew of BBQ. I have traveled all through the south and have yet to find ANYTHING that compares to it. We have good frined that come and visit us in TN and they are required to bring a cooler full of Carolina BBQ every time they visit. If you find yourself in Aiken or the surrounding area a visit to this establishment is well worth it. This establishment was listed as one of the top 5 BBQ places in the US in the Delta Sky Mile Magazine some years ago.
I've been eating this barbeque my whole life. My mom (Iris Fulmer) grew up in New Ellenton. Throughout my childhood, and even now, she will drive from Atlanta to New Ellenton to get this stuff. It's the best ever and has ruined me for tomato based barbeque sauce. Can't get the golden stuff around here :(
When Mom says she's headed to SC, my sisters and I circle up with cash in hand to request a home delivery!
Went there to meet my husband for lunch, and I didn't see anything special about it. After reading all the 4 stars from websites, I expected a lot more. I thought the pork tasted wonderful, but without any of the sauces. Plus the sweet tea was great, but that's the only thing I liked there. The hash was spicy. Not on my favorite places to eat BBQ.
