Sweatman's Bar-B-Que Restaurant Review

: This barbecue joint is a Mecca that pork lovers will drive (or crawl) many a hardscrabble mile to reach (it's more than an hour from downtown Charleston). There is a large buffet with crispy cracklin’ and mounds of banana pudding, and Southern vegetable staples. Traditional South Carolina hash served over rice; a pair of sauces, one vinegar mustard and the other sweet; and coleslaw are the additional items to expect. The sauce is served on the side as purists insist, and is really not even necessary on the pulled pork. If you’re traveling, you reach this location off I-95 (exit 90) or I-26 (exit 177/SC 453, which is Eutaw Road). This is a culinary and cultural experience, and décor is not of prime importance.
