Momma Brown's Barbecue, Mt. Pleasant, SC

Momma Brown's serves coastal Carolina style barbecue out of an old diner in Mt. Pleasant, SC.

Momma Brown's pig comes with a spicy variation of the coastal vinegar base. They also have a mustard mix that isn't quite so spicy. I didn't ask how they cook the meat, but neither mustard nor vinegar has a very smokey flavor. They are pre-sauced, and there's additional vinegar sauce on the buffet.

Momma Brown's has a buffet that includes a pretty impressive variety of sides, including fried okra, 3 different kinds of rice. Unfortunately, the fried okra was a little cold. You can also choose from Macaroni pie, a bunch of green stuff, rutabagas, sweet potatoes, and there is even fried chicken and hush puppies.

It was good, but I didn't notice anything exceptional about Momma Brown's. The dining room doesn't exactly exude a country barbecue feeling--it's an old 60s style diner.

What I loved:
The spread was great because there are tons of things to choose from.

What I didn't like:
The hash was just bad. It tasted like thick tomato soup.

My recommendations: It's a great place for lunch because they're open every day except Monday. But if you're looking to kick back on a weekend with the best barbecue in town, I might suggest looking somewhere else. Oh, and try the hash with caution.

This not a BBQ joint. It is a buffet that happens to have pork that resembles bbq. I have eaten here once and the pork was so old because it had been sitting there all day. If you want REAL bbq, travel a little out of Charleston and go to Sweatmans between Holley Hill and Eutaville. They are only open Friday and Saturday. Walk out back and see the pit master. Ask for a sample of pork skin.... right off the pit. The buffet is the best deal. It has a pan of ribs, a pan of outside meat and pan of inside meat, slaw, etc. There are three sauces to choose from on your table. Then you can say you have been to a real bbq joint. Mike- Columbia

Momma Browns in Mt. Pleasant is no longer open. Also it was not located in an old diner but in a '70s convenience store.
It probably closed due to a combination of the economy and Home Team bbq opening up on nearby Sullivan's Island.
