complete. October 2013 - B's Barbecue, Greenville
I immediately liked the look of B's Barbecue
when we pulled up. It is in an old gas station building and the old pump island remains in front of the building. B's is on the NCBS Historic Barbecue Trail
and featured in Our State
, but has not been reviewed yet at Roadfood.com.
The patron in the above photo was ordering from their take-out window when he realized they had indoor seating.
I got a look at their smoke pit as they Pit Masters were leaving for the day. It is located in what appears to be an old shed used for auto service.
We ordered one pork platter to split 4-ways. The pork was excellent, smoky & tasty, and you can tell they put love into the picking and chopping of the meat. It was probably as good as our #1 choice for the day, but we were so full that judging was difficult. I added B's spicy vinegar sauce to the slaw and really enjoyed it that way. We did not care for the cornbread sticks.
As we were eating, the front door burst open and several young men entered one after another - almost like watching a clown car - a total of nine were in their group. They immediately ordered 9 pork sandwiches. When PieDiva
went up to refill her tea, one of the group bragged that this was their second of five BBQ stops for the day. PieDiva
nonchalantly mentioned that this was our fourth lunch so far. They were duly impressed, even asking buffetbuster
if we were professionals. Not quite, and these guys were not exactly amateurs themselves. They rented a chauffeur-driven motorcoach for their 2-day trip from Virginia Beach into the heart of Carolina Barbecue Country.
After the other group ordered, the staff at B's promptly put up their CLOSED - OUT OF BARBECUE
P.S. - That is buffetbuster's
delightful girlfriend Mariton, not one of the bus riders.
