Had the brisket 'que plate and my wife had the Brunswick stew and hush puppies. Awesome! BBQ sauces were all great as well. The smell of the BBQ smokers as we sat outside to enjoy our meal even added to the whole experience. Don't miss this place!!!

The pulled pork was some of the best we have ever had. Great sauce and good ribs. Brunswick Stew was tasty. Casual and packed but still didn't take long to get our food.

We tried this place because so many people recommended it. It is this cute little hole in the wall that has a neat environment. We almost passed it! Parking is limited and seating is as well. Luckily, just as we were coming in someone was getting up so I grabbed their spot while my husband ordered. The sweet tea was... More

We ordered to go because we didn't want to wait for a table. Got the Brunswick Stew which was reported to be the best in the area and it didn't disappoint.

Pulled pork was barely warm. Cole slaw not tasty at all. Fries were good. We couldn't understand why it's rated so high.

I finally got to try Southern BBQ on this trip to SSI. We have been by this location many times and it is ALWAYS packed with people waiting out the door.. Today we were those people. The ordering was quick, finding a seat was a little difficult but accomplished, and the food was delivered quickly. The 1/2 rack of ribs... More

This restaurant was highly recommended as a must try. I had the pulled pork plate. The BBQ was tender and had the perfect amount of smoked flavor. Meal came with choice of sides the fried okra and mac and cheese were awesome. My husband had the coleslaw which was also amazing. Service was quick and friendly.

I usually never eat anything but seafood when I'm on St. Simon's Island until I heard about Southern Soul. Now it's one of the first places that we eat when we visit the island. Pulled BBQ is the best and we love the fried green beans. Have been eating here since 2012 and never been disappointed.
