First of all, let me say that I posted this in reverse order of my driving.
I went to Maurices-on I-95 in Santee, SC first, and then to Georgia Pig..(Brunswick, GA)
I also edited the subject title to reflect where I was.
I had to go back to SC this past weekend (for the last time), and although I wanted to stop at Don's in Pooler,
again to retrieve my BBQ slaw they forgot a few weeks ago, they were closed on Sunday.
So... I remembered a place mentioned here--Georgia Pig.
With the help of UncleVic guiding me via text/email message, I was able to find it.
Well.....The smell was heavenly.
I took a few pictures outside.....
Then, was greeted by this at the door.
I didnt ask why, they seemed to be a little on the pissy side, so I kept my trap shut.
Typical assorted Q items. I chose a 3 meat plate with choice of slaw and beans...
You had a choice of pork, beef (both chopped-only choice), ribs, sausage.
They were out of ribs, so I chose pork, beef and sausage.
Speaks for itself. Sorry, No photo of the sauce.
I really didnt care for the sauce, and I had noticed that if you got a sandwich, they put the sauce on top, so the option of "sauce on the side" was there. *
(More about sauce on the side below)
The sausage didnt really taste like it was smoked, although the pit is there right in the open and they are chopping the meat to order.
Beef and pork tasted alright-it was moist and a decent smoke taste to it... To me, nothing spectacular. The slaw was very bland. The beans were decent, had bacon and onions in them, like the way I make them.
To tell you the truth, I could take or leave it.
As MikeS mentioned in another thread, it wasn't very clean and the bathrooms were dirty. I totally agree with him!
Now..... Back to "sauce on the side"...
I was so hungry, and knowing that Don's was closed on Sunday, I did something I said I would never do again. After trying the ribs slathered in a half gallon of yellow sauce, I swore off Maurices.
(see my post in a Maurice thread-March 2007)

I stopped for a pork sandwich at Maurices location on I-95.
I am NOT a big fan of mustard bases BBQ sauce, and I thought I could get the sauce on the side.
Voice from speaker at drive thru--"Hello, welcome to Maurices"..
"I would like a small pork sandwich with the sauce on the side"..
SORRY--"All our items are pre-sauced".......(Darn!
Uh, Uh,.. "OK.. Large unsweet tea with lemon also"..
Got my little bag and pulled into a parking space to inspect it.
(and take a photo)
They had tossed an extra little side in the bag. Dipped my finger in it.
Tasted it (again)....Vinegar, honey (or some type of sweetner), Mustard.. ahhhh....Ick!
I ate the meat and tossed the bun. To tell you the truth?.. I didnt even care for the meat. It is pulled and there was a fair amount of it, with a huge chunk, so that I was able to taste pork flavor instead of SAUCE!
I like my Q naked.
Please let me do the saucing!
I wish I had thought about Choo Choos, which was the next exit southbound, but with my luck, they would be closed on Sundays also.
