    You can't go wrong with the pork sandwich. Fries are standard with the donut onion ring.

    Do not go for the buffet unless you enjoy standing on long lines waiting for very old people to make it through the one buffet line.

    Onion rings are like a donut with a little bit of onion.

    Get the bacon cheeseburger. Not as good as Melvin's (which is weird since it's the same family) but coming in 2nd ain't a bad thing.

    It was a bad experience. The customer service was lacking to put it nicely and I left feeling irritated.

    If you don't like mustard based sauce, don't eat their BBQ pork.

    I am an eastern NC girl, and have been slow to take to this SC mustard sauce. Oh Lordy if I had only stopped here first! Nearly a year wasted with slop. Want to love SC sauce? Eat here. :)

    If you're in Charleston, you need to stop here for a meal. The 'Que doesn't disappoint and the sauce is one of the best around, mustard-based or not.

    Melvin's gets the pub. but Bessingers might actually have the best Cheeseburger in Charleston. Great Q as well-done right.
