This is an interesting place. When we're traveling, we like to try the local BBQ joints along the way. We found ourselves at Maurice's Gourmet BBQ (apparently owned by the same people who own the Piggie Parks). You order at the counter and they will bring your food to the table. We ordered beef brisket sandwiches and were surprised that... More

The food is great, the staff is great, but going thru the drive thru is VERY slow!! Stop by when you can but I guess you can't rush greatness!!

This restaurant has very good BBQ, the coleslaw and macaroni and cheese are excellent. Mashed potatoes are homemade like you fix at home. Great place to eat.

Maurice's has the real South Carolina BBQ, and it's smoked and real...not out of a can! Their onion rings are to die for...thick and battered and made from real onions!!! The service is quick and friendly. This is a Southern tradition!

I especially like the Little Joe sandwich or the BBQ chicken. A plate is plenty for two and the onion rings are hand-breaded and definitely splittable (is that even a word?) Our teenage son loves their BBQ and you can usually find coupons in the Pennysaver that comes out monthly in the mail or newspaper.

This is not anything but what it purports to be...a very casual, down home barbeque joint. The original owner, who was indeed an unrelenting racist, retired some years ago and died last year. The generation who now runs the business is disinterested in politics. I certainly understand that the stain of the old man's rants and outdated beliefs would make... More

Maurice serves a South Carolina style pulled pork BBQ. The sauce is a mustard base and not the traditional tomato base or red sauce you get in other places. It is unique and delicious. Years ago I worked for a company that tried to duplicate Maurice's BBQ. Could not be done. Maurice has a lock on it. Although he serves... More

As a Columbia native, I have never understood the hype for this place. It's average sauce and the BBQ itself is often soggy with too much sauce mixed in and not of very good quality imo. I have had BBQ all over South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, and Tennessee and this by far the worst BBQ I have had from... More

Excellent BBQ both pulled and ribs. If you leave the buffet hungry it's your fault. With all the meats and sides plus desserts this buffet has something for everyone. I go whenever I'm in the area.
