After church yesterday, we had a delicious dinner that was catered by Buckinghams. There is handicapped parking at the Missouri United Methodist Church but are very limited. I park in a parking garage and use my scooter to get there. It is rather a distance and a large hill. There are elevators inside that can be used. The food was... More

Only tried the ribs, and they were excellent. Meaty and with a slightly sweet dry rub. Sauce - various heat levels - was ready available. The sides were less successful - the fried peppers and onions had a tasteless crust and the cole slaw was pretty standard. Service was great, and there is indoor and outdoor seating (although if you... More

A few years back I wrote a highly positive TripAdvisor review about this restaurant, calling it the best BBQ in Columbia. It was, but it's not now. There are now several BBQ places that serve much, much better quality BBQ. We had been very loyal customers of Buckinghams since it first opened years ago. We ate there at least once... More

Stopped after a meeting and even though I came around closing time Ms. Destiny treat me as I was a regular. Ordered the brisket sandwich and its good! Now the Texas toothpicks are great! If you are in town a must stop.

The owner (or manager) is most friendly, as are the waitresses. The barbecue beef sandwich was very bland, and not very hot. The horseradish cole slaw and sweet potato foes were okay, but also bland. My father-in-law gave the baby back ribs high marks, so don't write it off altogether. Finally, they listed as one of the bottled beers PBR.... More

Friendly welcoming joint with a real smoker out back--and a pitmaster in bib overalls just like my farm uncle used to wear. Overwhelming portions. See our okra appetizer after we stuffed ourselves. Very meaty delicious ribs. Our new go-to place for bbq.

Ate here with a friend. Place was nice, server was friendly. Food was ok, horseradish coleslaw was yummy. Was a little disappointed that there were no burnt ends on the menu. I really liked the sauces, I thought the spicy was really good

My husband and I stopped in for a quick lunch. Fast service and good food. We shared a full slab of ribs and still had a half rack to bring home. Delicious! Well definitely be back.

My family went to Bonkers to let the kids play and when we left it was dinner time. We stopped in for some BBQ before going home. It was fairly busy and it took nearly 30 min. to get our food but it was well worth the wait. The brisket was amazing and the fries and pit beans were excellent... More

Delicious food! Service was ok. You can get food to go or eat in. All the standards. The smoked baked potato is good. Where we sat, there was food on the wall and we found that a bit unappetizing.
