Best BBQ in the Florence area!! – I have been visiting Roger's BBQ for years - when I can get to Florence. I am currently living in NC and when I go visit family, I always take the route via Roger's BBQ. As my son puts it, " it is down-home country cooking met with southern hospitality, what else could you ask for?" They have a quaint down home atmosphere, very friendly, and the buffet is always stocked. The BBQ is juicy and tender - they do specialize in the "vinegar-based" sauce. The squash casserole is BANGIN (in other words it is AWESOME!)!! I have to fill my plate up with this casserole every time I go!! They also have fresh green beans, black eyed peas, collards, hash, rice, etc... just right for any taste! Homemade desserts and free refills on drinks! Go, Sit, and enjoy....this is just like being at home with grandma...well almost!! Thanks for such a wonderful restaurant to come home to!
Local favorite, check on hours before you try to find it – After three trips to Florence, I finally found this place open. It was only open on certain days, but that seems to have changed. Better to check before you hunt it down. I go out of my way to try a barbeque joint, especially a local favorite. The signs say voted best BBQ in the county for years and years. BBQ in the Carolinas is defined differently depending on geography. I have tried maybe 8 different types. This was not my favorite.
Instead of ordering off a menu, it is buffet. Two types of pulled pork, pork ribs, and chicken. The pulled pork had no noticeable smoke flavor, and was a little tough. I could only find one type of sauce, and it is the very vinegary variety. The chicken was tasteless, and seemed baked in sauce rather than BBQ. I am a big fan of southern sides, and tried the lima beans (good), collard (good), fried okra (cold), and cole slaw (Okay).
The staff should work at Walmart. Lunch time, the line is out the door, and three girls are talking about their dates. I had to walk across the room a snag a bottle of BBQ sauce from a dirty table. Service comes to the table to fill your drink and give you a straw after I was done pushing the food around my plate. Not a word, just drop the straw and a pitcher of tea.
I filled a cavity, but I have had better southern BBQ in Connecticut. Maybe it is a regional variety that I do not have a taste for. I wish I could find a real BBQ joint that specializes in good BBQ rather than cheap, all-u-can eat buffet. The search continues.
