This Bucky's location is near my work - eat lunch here about once a month. Had the pork plate, also have had the chicken plate in the past.

I've been eating at the Roper Mtn location since it opened. I think they have the best pull pork and smoked chicken in Greenville. Their sides are also delicious. The green beans, sweet potato crunch are my favorite.

Sweet potato crunch is a must have, BBQ is very good but a little heavy handed with smoke. Great beans and really good sweet tea.

Food is consistent and the best bbq in town. I suggest the chicken but pork is excellent as well. I have never been for dinner but lunch is crowded

They have the best barbecue I've ever tasted. Not too spicy hot. LOVE their baked beans too. Very friendly staff and not usually a long wait if stopping in for take-out.

The BBQ and chicken were really amazing! You could taste the smoke flavor in the meat and the serving sizes were perfect for us. The sweet potato crunch is the best we have ever had! I wish I could have taken a platter of this stuff back with us. The cole slaw was not very good in our opinion as... More

We like a dry BBQ so we can add the sauce to our taste and this is hands down the best. We love all of it - have had the chicken, chopped pork and ribs. Best ribs any where! I often eat the meat without any sauce as the spices they use during the smoking process is good to me.... More

I used to live here and I haven't found anything as good anywhere else. This is the best barbecue around. The mustard sauce is fantastic. I'm not a fan of the chicken but the pulled pork and ribs are my benchmark for barbecue.

The BBQ was pretty good but the sides were not great. Canned great beans that were seasoned and Mac & cheese was Mac noodles with Velveeta cheese or so I thought. ..not homemade. Oh and no ice machine. Ice was in a cooler that had a scoop in it and who knows if the person ahead had clean hands and... More

Great stop...took a relative who were visiting the area. They were blown away. Everything was especially outstanding on this visit. Only negative was the lack of SPC late in the evening on a Saturday night. Still our go-to for BBQ in the Greenville area. Not a thing to dislike about it and the prices are amazing!

Thank abcjjl
