The First Family of BBQ
The Bessingers are the first family of barbeque in South Carolina, known for their legendary mustard-based barbeque sauce, a Carolina classic since the 1930s.
By keeping the business in the family and taking a hands-on approach to managing the restaurant, Thomas Bessinger and his sons, Tommy and Michael, have maintained a warm, friendly and relaxed atmosphere that welcomes customers and makes them feel like they’re part of the family.
WELCOME TO THE FAMILY
Now this is what I was expecting when I saw this place. Real BBQ!!!
Ribs fell off the bone, wings were amazing!!! Potato salad was perfect and the collard greens were so beautifully spiced, I couldn’t get enough of them!!! The spicy mustard sauce was the BEST!!! Will be back here again when I’m in town!!!”—Tiffani C. (Google Review)
