    Make sure to go for Prime Rib Fridays as it's the best thing on the menu (sandwich or plate & don't forget the au jus). Ribs & pulled pork were very good. Spicy & Sweet sauce was heavenly.

    Here is the perfect order: two-meat sampler with pulled pork and brisket, Brunswick stew and mac & cheese; burnt end sandwich; coleslaw side, fried green beans side; Fried Oreos. And beers.

    This place is amazing and ridiculous. I could drown in a pile of meat here and die happy. Get the stew, get the pulled pork, or close your eyes and point to anything on the menu. So good.

    Great food. Place is small with little indoor eating space. Great food. Place is a bit sumptuous and had flies but food was really good. Oh yeah, hard to park but great food. All in all, I'd go back.

    Brisket with fried green beans and Mac and cheese! Brunswick stew was killer. All four BBQ sauces were awesome, but Sweet Georgia Soul was my favorite. I and my two friends each bought a bottle of it!

    AMAZING! Got the pulled pork which was great. All the BBQ sauces were good but the Sweet GA Soul was so good I bought a bottle. Next time I will definitely try the ribs, they looked super tasty.

    I had the 1/2 slab and it didn't disappoint. Hot Georgia Soul is 🔥🔥! My girl had a pulled pork sandwich with a side of Mac and cheese and fried okra.

    This is a must have in St. Simons! While they boast the best brunswick stew around, guests say the fried green beans are amazing as well!

    Try the brisket. You can't go wrong with whatever you chose. Ignore the uppity rich people on vacation and eat with your hands!

    Diners boast that it's the best BBQ they have ever tasted! A few must-order menu items are the brunswick stew, hoppin' john and smoked turkey.

    Southern Soul Sandwich, for 6 bucks its a lot of food and you cant go wrong for a quick bit. This is also a hot spot for the pilots that fly to St. Simons.

    Best bbq I've ever had was at a gas station, Oklahoma Joe's. How can I not want to eat here? These guys use old school outdoor smokers, wood only. Watch it on TripleD

    Try the Philly Soul sandwich. Sit at the counter inside and enjoy the A/C and the hospitality of their service crew.

    Out of the myriad versions of Brunswick stew across Georgia, the nuanced take at Southern Soul stands out. At special events, the cooks go old-school and even add smoked squirrel. Read more

    Sauces are mustardy, hot mustardy, or red wine vinaigrette, not my thing. Mac & cheese isn't my fav either. This place is famous, but I'd go somewhere else. Waitresses are rude if you are pretty.

    Don't forget to get BBQ beans. And the cole slaw, which they don't serve every day, are even better.
