We saw this BBQ on our way to Holly Hill, and saw it was open only Friday and Saturday. The rest of our family was coming in for the weekend so we decided to go there were 10 of us and everyone really liked it including the kids. The price was right and they even had a kids plate. I... More

I saw Sweatman's BBQ being featured on Travel Channels "Food Paradise" a while back. The food looked so wonderful! So we made a detour on the way to the coast today. We got "lost" in a barbecue buffet of goodness! The BBQ , ribs, chicken and all the sides were excellent. Everyone working there treated us like we were family.... More

Second time in 2 years, this off the road BBQ place is about a days drive from me. When going up the corridor, it's a great place to stop and eat and relax after a long day of driving. This BBQ restaurant is only open Fridays and Saturdays. In that short time they sell over 13 hogs and serve about... More

I am never passing through when Sweatman's is open (open Friday and Saturday only), but I finally made it! BBQ had a wonderful flavor, cooked just right, along with tasty sides and a super friendly staff. This place is not right off of the interstate but if you are passing close by when they are open, it's worth the detour.

Straight up great (mustard base) BBQ. Pork is whole pig. Limited hours which is too bad! Will be back.

This is a no frills BBQ place. You order your food and pay up front and they bring it to you. Food is served on paper plates and in Styrofoam containers, but everything was really yummy. The pork sandwiches were very good, as well as the macaroni & cheese and green beans. We actually ordered more green beans after we... More

I made a detour as I travelled for this place as it was recommended to me. The food bar does not have a huge selection, but what is offered is well prepared. The ribs are flavorful, hash is awesome, and beans are great! Other selections consist of mac & cheese, banana pudding, and cole slaw. The food om the bar... More

We were staying in Santee and had heard about this BBQ place so just had to try it out. Let's just say it was the biggest disappointment of our entire week in Santee. From the outside this restaurant looks like it is going to be a really nice experience. Inside, well lets say it is nothing. When I say nothing,... More

I've heard about this place for years, but I was disappointed. The mac n cheese was too dry, the meat was a bit tough for me and I really missed not having a biscuit. The dessert of banana and pudding was old; the bananas were brown. I felt the food was just warm and not hot. I loved the setting... More
