The food is amazing! It is a little shop. Actually in Cherry Grove just north of North Myrtle Beach. The chicken wings are outstanding. The BBQ ribs are just the best we have had in years. We eat BBQ frequently, and this is some of the best. The hush puppies are not to be missed. Just terrific. Good prices too.

My wife and I both had the Chopped Pork plate with Hand cut fries and excellent beans and coleslaw. Great price and great food. Will definitely go again.

If you know anything about BBQ it's not the building it's in that matters. As the owner said, they do one thing and do it well. Very reasonable prices and very large portions. Best BBQ you find in the area. Don't bother going to the chain restaurants. Family owned, doing it right.

We googled BBQ in Myrtle Beach and this place was highly rated. It deserves every accolade. The ribs are very meaty and don't need any additional sauce in my opinion because the dry rub provides excellent flavor. Half order was twice the meal I needed which included two sides. Between the three of us we had many of the sides... More

It's out of the way and located in what looked to be an old gas station, but barbecue lovers know that's where the best 'Que can be found. They have the usual suspects: ribs, beef and pork, but you need to get there early if you want ribs. I had to "settle" for the pulled pork, but it was worth... More

Ordered the ribs, BBQ platter. Everything was well-cooked with great flavor. The store could use remodeling, but it has character.

Small little place w/ glass all around. BBQ was smoking outside. Very friendly girl who did everything inside. Food was very good. BBQ could be smoked a little longer but it was very lean and good. I would definitely go back.

My family and I got 4 sandwiches last night from Old South. You call your order in and can pick it up in 10 minutes. The pork has a good taste, no fat. You add your own sauce so you can have it customized. We get coleslaw on the side and sweet bbq sauce, very good. The sandwich is packed... More
