I'm so glad we found this place. This is some great BBQ. I ordered the ribs and they were delicious! They have some great sides as well like the fried okra. Great BBQ in Aiken.

Duke's is an institution to some and just the local joint to others. The ribs are sublime and after that nothing else matters. Of course there are many selections of sides including hush puppies, okra, collards, beans and much more. And my husband swears by the peach cobbler. But it is all about the ribs. Skip the chicken which is... More

We enjoyed everything we tried. Great sides, fried chicken, ribs and a lot more. Although the place was packed, our family of seven that came at prime dinner time was able to get in right away. We'll be back.

The newest owners...who took over a year or two ago...have made great improvements to about every item on the huge, hot, fresh buffet. The original owners, the Crosby's, would be proud that the food quality meets their high standards. The pulled pork is tender, moist and smokey tasting. You should think twice and take a naked taste before adding one... More

This is a good southern all you can eat Bar-B-Q buffet. There was a nice variety of main dishes & sides. Everything was delicious.

Bbq to me has to include beef brisket, but what I got here was piles of pork and chicken....so I was seriously disappointed right away.... The sauces, well I've had much better....and that made everything more average...with none of the meat tasting exceptional.... Lots of veggies, and many of the selections were above average....which was very nice... The peach cobbler... More

Some of the best down home food! It's a little rough on the eyes but the food is awesome! I wouldn't go there if I was trying to eat healthy but if you want some good southern food it's the place! Also it's super affordable at only $10 per person for all you can eat!

My lust for some real Southern Food was sated when we had a family dinner at Dukes and filled our plates high with THE BEST southern cookin' I have had in a long time! Collards, cornbread, okra and tomatoes, fried okra, ham, pulled pork, squash casserole green beans, black-eyed peas and sweet tea. And can forget the banana puddin'. All... More
