Ok. Really good BBQ. The long lines attest to this. Come early, or be prepared to stand in line for a while. My wife and I were lucky to get open seats at the bar, but the line went out the door and didn't let up for over an hour. I'm going to stick by my friends at Heirloom BBQ... More

We had a wonderful meal at the Southern Soul restaurant when we were touring Saint Simons Island our second day there. It was complete chaos as the place was packed to the gills with hungry customers but they got us through the ordering very quickly and the food came out in a timely fashion. Everything we had was just excellent.... More

OMG! I am a daughter of the South and have every kind of BBQ, everywhere, I joke you not. This is some of the best food you will ever put in your mouth. The pork is good. The ribs are good. But, dammit, that smoked chicken is the bomb! We go by there and buy food to bring back to... More

This is an establishment where the locals go. BBQ meat is more than generous. Very tender. Several sauces on the table to flavor it. Generous serving of excellent brunswick stew. What I enjoyed the most was their specialty beer called "Red Hair 50-50." Think they said it is brewed in Atlanta. Beer is expensive ($6.00). Other drafts are $5.00. Great... More

Came highly recommended and did not disappoint. The place was hopping when we arrived but the service was fast and the food was amazing and very inexpensive. Would strongly recommend to anyone visiting St Simon's Island!

I love going to Southern Soul every chance I can! During the Holidays, especially! They always have great daily specials, by you get great fall classics like home made squash casserole, green bean casserole cakes & pies! They are obviously known for their wood-fire smoked BB-Q, Chicken, Turkey and Ribs! In fact, Guy Fieri of DDD (Diners, Drive-In's & Dives)... More

My wife and I were visiting in the area & stopped in here for lunch. We ordered a Southern Soul Sampler with Brisket and Ribs with a Brunswick Stew & Baked Beans side. All was good, but would order all ribs on the next trip. They were the best by far. Very reasonable prices as well. Parking around this place... More

We did take-out, pulled pork, brisket, beans, and potato salad. Oh my, it was wonderful. We preferred the pork over the brisket, and I could eat a bucket of the potato salad, Go here hungry.

Absolutely delicious BBQ. Pulled pork was delicious and juicy, brisket was out of this world, hush puppies were mouthwatering. Worth nothing that seating is extremely limited.
