Take-out and Buffet
This is one of the best places around Charleston for BBQ. It is a bit of a shack, but that’s just part of the proof that at JB’s, sustenance takes precedence over style. The pork is fantastic, the sides are good, and most importantly, JB’s never pours sauce on the meat—it’s always on the side. Truth is, the pork is good enough to eat without any sauce, but you can choose from 6 different sauces: they’re all good. (tomato, hot tomato base, mustard, vinegar, and rib/chicken)
This small barbecue joint is decorated with signed pictures of country music stars who visited and clippings of raving newspaper reviews.
There’s a sign on the wall encouraging patrons to share a table with a new friend, and chances are, you’ll probably make one or two. The owners take your order, roam the dining room, and chat with all their guests. Plan on feeling like family, and expect to leave with a full stomach.
What I loved:
- JB's is a jack of all trades when it comes to barbecue. Although nothing on the buffet is superb, it's all very good and the variety of sauces makes it hard to stop returning to the buffet line.
- Remember to save room for dessert. My favorite is the chocolate pudding. It has gummy worm hidden in it.
Get the buffet and enjoy the sweet tea for about $19 for two.
Food I remember:
- Green beans
- Macaroni and cheese
- Pulled pork
- Apple wood smoked chicken
- Several desserts
