Awesome place for BBQ. We travel a lot. This place was a great value. It's buffet style, This was fresh. Everything was clean. The servers were very pleasant! Absolutely must try. Looks like a dive from the highway. This place was great. Next time we are near Columbia or on the way to the beach, we will come again.
