Hours: Lunch & Dinner (Wed.-Sat.)
At JB’s Smokeshack, they proudly declare, “The flavor’s in the meat, sauce is on the side.” It’s a classic Carolina barbecue joint, and that means an all-you-can-eat buffet with limited hours (open Wed.-Sat.). The buffet features hickory-smoked pork, applewood-smoked chicken, and juicy, pepper-tinged fried chicken. At dinnertime they add a carving station with beef brisket. For sides, there are collards, black-eyed peas, hash and rice, baked beans, and many more classics. The pork is tender and flavorful, but the chicken — rich and juicy and full of great smoke flavor — is the real treat. Be sure to save room for banana pudding. It’s the proper way to top off a classic Lowcountry barbecue feast. —Robert Moss Dish (Summer 2013)
