We spent Thanksgiving on Hilton Head Island (lots of seafood) and I was hungering for some BBQ on our return trip to IL. My wife pinpointed the spot while I was driving - it's a little bit west of I-26 but not that far out of the way. It is pretty much in the middle of nowhere - and the... More

Inside dining or take out plates. Mustard base BBQ local favorite. Also available for purchase: bags of fried pork skins, meats & large quantities of hash to take home for gatherings.

First, if you are traveling through the area and want a full-service restaurant with every convenience and a huge selection of menu items, this isn't your place. If you like local color, friendly servers, authentic South Carolina mustardy-sauce barbecue, stop by. I have never seen pork rinds on a buffet before, or ribs. The barbecue is top notch, the slaw...

Wise has been around for a long time. Buffet-style serve yourself all you can eat. The ribs are fantastic. For a good southern meal with a glass of cold sweet tea. Visit them on Friday or Saturday night.

My local barbecue joint that I loved closed down and I was told about Wise. It's a little bit of a drive for me but boy did it hit the spot! It's just a small place in a small town. I have never ate inside, I always order to go. It's hard to find good hash but this place has... More

I've been eating at Wise's since I was a toddler, and still return whenever I can. They make and serve SC mustard-based barbecue sauce, which I was raised on, and it's still my fave. (No, there is no ketchup- or tomato-based sauce in the building.) I love the chopped pork best, but also enjoy the chicken, and the ribs, and... More

It's a dive ok BUT delicious! Pork, chicken, beef out of this world! It lacks some in its decor. it's a super simple county place that has changed very little in many years! If ya want fancy this not the place for you, but for simple southern BBQ it is a can't miss!!

Not sure words can describe what we walked into! We were on our way to Charleston very late in the evening and were trying to find something other than fast food. (Mind you, we were getting pretty tired and hungry..lol) We took the advice of others on Trip Advisor and.....well let's just say, we went in the front door, took... More

Wises BQ has a unique flavor and texture. I loved the BQ and all of our gusest at the lake enjoyed it equally. I will be using them every time I need a BQ Party.
