Po Pigs Bo-B-Q

2410 SR-174, Edisto Island, SC - (843) 869-9003
Posted By Michael Stern on May 29, 2003 4:23 AM
Most of the best South Carolina barbecue parlors are open only on weekends; Po Pigs Bo-B-Q, named after its proprietor Robert BoBo Lee, extends those hours to add Thursdays in the winter and Wednesdays in the summer. The food and service are pure Palmetto State.

Serve yourself at a buffet line that is built around smoke-cooked pork: dark meat, light meat, pork cracklin’s in the form of skin, hash made from pork parts to ladle over white rice, and liver hash, made from an even more visceral assortment of pork parts. In addition to pig, the line includes pieces of grilled and fried chicken and a Creole-flavored red chicken stew. The array of vegetables is nearly endless: turnip greens, green beans, field peas, macaroni & cheese, squash casserole, white rice, red rice, lima beans and ham, baked beans, stewed cabbage, and onion-dotted hushpuppies. The beverage choice is limited to coffee or tea, the latter available either sweet or unsweet.

Once you pile your plate, you find a seat at a table in the farmhouse-decorated dining room. There are booths for four and a row of larger communal tables well suited to big families or groups of the many workmen who like to eat here because it is cheap, plentiful, and traditional.

Excellent BBQ and gracious owners, in a well-run place. I'm a Yankee from New Yawk with an affinity for good BBQ (they don't know how to make good BBQ in the Northeast), and I was on my first trip to the Old South. Delicious. Clean and bright too. A bonus is that you're halfway to or from Edisto Island (10 miles), so it's great either for lunch before the beach or dinner after. Eat up.
