I eat a lot of barbecue so I compare this restaurant with my personal favorites (City Barbecue and Smokey Bones). The pulled pork and sliced brisket weren't bad but their sauces seemed bland. I will likely not return for no other reason than there's so many excellent restaurants in Charleston.

Stopped for lunch and I am so glad we did. By far the best meal my family had on our 9 day trip south. the pulled pork with cold slaw was very good. the kids liked the chicken tenders, definitely the best ones they had all trip. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff.

My wife & I decided to go to lunch here after hearing & reading a lot about this restaurant. The parking was ok behind the restaurant & we got in line to order. We both got pulled pork sandwiches, which was generously placed on the bun. I had the side of baked beans which was pretty good. The barbecue was... More

Ok. We're from Texas. We believe we invented the "Q". We dust the soot off Aaron Franklin's shoes just to get into his shop before he runs out. Carolina pulled pork hmmmmmm! It was really good and the sides were too. Believe it not the brisket was pretty good. I can't say it was spankin' awesome because I'd lose my... More

Our daughter lives in North Charleston, and we went to visit her during her birthday in March. We offered to take her anywhere she wanted for her birthday dinner and this is what she wanted. I was ecstatic, as I love Bbq, my wife not so much. We had a wonderful time there, and my daughter was very happy too.... More

Just another outstanding meal by the Home Team. Brisket is still the best I have ever eaten. Mac n cheese is out of this world. The smoked chicken is as juicy as can be - to include the white meat. Stone ground pimento cheese grits were awesome. Just cannot beat this meal. One of our two must eats while visiting... More

It was everything I hoped it would be. Ate their for lunch while on vacation, sat solo at the bar. Service was good, food was fantastic, I had both chopped brisket and pulled pork. I sampled all the sauces and they were all great. Decent craft beer selection, wish they offered flights. Seemed to be a wide selection of liquor... More

What a great introduction to Charleston BBQ. We stopped for lunch after a long day of traveling. The pulled chicken sandwich was really good and the barbecue burrito was a fun experience. The waitress suggested brisket instead of pulled pork and the combination was great. The local beer options were fun to try. Definitely worth the trip to Sullivan's Island

Good place. Good vibe. Had special with non-standard fare: pork belly and kimchi on a bun. Will go back.
