Re: “Smoke BBQ

Awesome wings! Just had the Smokey Chick sandwich, my new favorite. Brisket has been hit or miss in the past but I think Chef Roland has finally nailed it and his devotion and dedication to getting it right is what it takes to be the best! If you think it's pricey go during happy hour, what a deal, but hey, it is King Street with mega high rents and they say that no one ever says it's too expensive...you definitely get what you pay for and I never leave hungry OR disappointed. Also, ABSOLUTELY THE BEST AND FRIENDLIEST STAFF ANYWHERE!!! I stake my life on this one:-)

Re: “Smoke BBQ

I really dig this place. The staff is always awesome and the prices are reasonable, teetering on inexpensive. The pork is magical and smoky. $3 pork tacos at happy hour. Do it. The wings are a mighty tasty treat as well.

Re: “Smoke BBQ

It is criminally overpriced and mediocre. They charged $18 for pulled pork or $21 for brisket with two sides. The pork was okay but nothing special and no taste of smoke at all. The brisket was a study in bad barbecue technique, starting with too much fat and ending with being overcooked. The sides sounded great but were bland and flavorless.

Re: “Melvin's

Ordered a Big Joe BBQ sandwich and a cup of water in Mount Pleasant. Cashier says, that will be $10.85. Explained that the order was for the sandwich only, not a basket or combo with sides. Cashier says, that will be $10.85. Asked if the mustard based sauce contained 24kt gold, then downgraded to a $6 cheeseburger. The Bessinger Family continues to get greedier and greedier as the years pass by. Hopefully, they will offer a finance plan for the lunch menu sometime in the near future so potential investors do not go around hungry.

Re: “Dukes Barbecue

Need to visit duke's bbq to up date prices and things that they now serve. On Wednesday they serve meatloaf. On Thursday they serve livers and gizzards. On Friday they have red rice and floudwrs. They are open on Tuesday and Wednesday until 8 pm! On the weekends they sell missippi mud pie. Which is available, during the other days also if you ask and they have left overs. They still have the best bbq and fried chicken is the bestest!

Re: “JB's Smokeshack

Not bad but nothing special. I remember once when they tried to charge me a dollar for a Styrofoam cup of water. Smoaky Oak on JI is better IMO.

Re: “JB's Smokeshack

Jb's is really good, you just need to go before the buffet gets destroyed. Their meat is really smokey, i don't see how the last guy thought it wasn't unless his last name is Dukes

Re: “JB's Smokeshack

Really disappointing. The good reviews were the reason I decided to go there. I guess I should have known better as soon as I saw the buffet setup. There are about a thousand bottles of their sauce in there, so it seems like they are trying to sell sauce rather than good food.

I picked up a pound of Pulled Pork (I like BBQ sandwiches) and a large Mac and Cheese to bring home and share with my friends. The meat was sort of soggy, and had clearly been reheated. There was no flavor to it. There was no bark or crust. I could not detect any smoke flavor. Contrary to their slogan, the only way to get any taste from this was to sauce it up. Their sweet sauce was really good.

The Mac and Cheese was the worst I have ever attempted to eat. I mean really bad. I appeared to have been made many days prior. One of those microwavable cups of Kraft would have been a far better choice. I threw most of it away.

Hard to believe how difficult it is to find good BBQ in Charleston. Don't get me started on Home Boy Team Robbery BBQ - They suck too.

Re: “JB's Smokeshack

Coachz: Not so sure why you wanted water, but these guys have to make a living, you know. Did they have to buy the cup and make the ice? Did they have to take time to make it up? Were refills free? Do they pay for the cost of the water and the equally same sum for the sewer service? Electricity, rent, etc? Stay at McDonalds and Hardees. These are the places cheapskates frequent.

Re: “JB's Smokeshack

They rock, so much better than Duke's BBQ. Their meat is actually has a smokey flavor compared to all the bland BBQ restaurants around. Its pretty cheap too.

Re: “Swig & Swine

As soon as you pull into the parking lot, the smell of delicious fills your nostrils. Head inside and grab a beer, and order up that three-meat plate. Pulled pork, brisket, and pork belly, with beans and mac n' cheese is how I do it. You won't wait too long before you are scarfing down juicy, smoked-out meat treats. I always have some leftovers for later. Don't forget to grab some nanner puddin' before you head out. The only downside of this place is that it's not attached to my house.

Re: “Market Street Saloon

It' quite interesting how at midnight on November 6th your "hottest bartender" was down 300 votes yet still seemed to win. Good to know the winner of Charleston's hottest bartender is predetermined.
