If you know anything about BBQ it's not the building it's in that matters. As the owner said, they do one thing and do it well. Very reasonable prices and very large portions. Best BBQ you find in the area. Don't bother going to the chain restaurants. Family owned, doing it right.

We googled BBQ in Myrtle Beach and this place was highly rated. It deserves every accolade. The ribs are very meaty and don't need any additional sauce in my opinion because the dry rub provides excellent flavor. Half order was twice the meal I needed which included two sides.

Ordered the ribs, BBQ platter. Everything was well-cooked with great flavor. The store could use remodeling, but it has character.

Small little place w/ glass all around. BBQ was smoking outside. Very friendly girl who did everything inside. Food was very good. BBQ could be smoked a little longer but it was very lean and good. I would definitely go back.

My family and I got 4 sandwiches last night from Old South. You call your order in and can pick it up in 10 minutes. The pork has a good taste, no fat. You add your own sauce so you can have it customized. We get coleslaw on the side and sweet bbq sauce, very good. The sandwich is packed... More
