Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I gave Bucky's a poor rating the last time I reviewed them due to the quality of the BBQ but....the past 4 or 5 visits the BBQ has been excellent. The portions are large and they have the best side in Greenville.

I originally reviewed Bucky's in 2014 and rated them Very Good. I have eater there and bought take-out many times since. I rarely rate a business poor or terrible but I have no problem doing that today. I stopped at Bucky's mid-afternoon on a recent...Saturday and ordered a light take-out plate. When I opened the meal at home and began to eat I realized that fully 50% of the BBQ was inedible rind, gristle and fat. Frankly, I was very surprised. I have always thought that Bucky's was a high value/lower priced BBQ joint. Management needs to keep a closer eye on the people dicing the Q and prepping plates. Half of what they put in my take-out plate should have gone in the trash. In an effort to be fair the other half was edible but average. The sides were fine. You may want to check your take-out orders in the car before leaving.More

BBQ is personal preference. I like mine to have a bit more of a Smokey taste and spiced up a bit. But this bbq is great and we had a nice meal here.

Food is excellent...All is made here---bbq, (also chicken ) baked beans, potato salad & various other sides...They have terrific bbq spice (I like the mustard based, daughter likes the others)..Their tea is the way we, southerners, like it...And it all comes at one price not...add-on prices for drinks...If you haven't visited Bucky's BBQ then you have missed it...Roper Mntn Rd & I have visited here very often when I lived in Greer SC...I am living in another town now; but when I get back to Greenville for BBQ, you can bet I shall be right there...I am somewhat of a bbq connisseur & only other place that can compete is in New Ellenton SC at Carolina BBQ...So you guys should definitely come & be treated to excellent price & food.More

Everything here was average from the Ribs, to the Pulled Pork, to the Mac and Cheese. The inside looked dumpy but not in way the enhances the charm of the place (Arthur Bryants). Like the BBQ, it seemed that no one cared that the restaurant...was just “ok”.More

I've eaten at Bucky's for over 15 years and have always enjoyed the food however Thursday (11/5/202) I ordered 2 Brisket sandwich plates and the brisket was dried out and over cooked. It was like a dried out roast beef. It did have the Smokey...flavor but it was a terrible brisket. I had a brisket plate from them several years ago during a BBQ class at the roper mountain road location and it was excellent. I will probably still go to Bucky's for their pork but never again for brisket.More

Went here based on multiple recommendations. They were correct ! Multiple choices of BBQ meats and sides. I got the Sampler Plate with ribs, pulled pork and chicken plus Cajun baked beans, slaw and bread. They were all excellent and served with friendly service. Drinks...and refills are self serve. They have inside and outside dining areas. It will be my regular BBQ place in Greenville. They now have four locations, but this was their original place. Very interesting decor and atmosphere. Mighty fine BBQ. See pictures.More

NJ visitors to the area. We love our BBQ but it usually includes a slightly spicy, thick and dark BBQ sauce as a necessary element. When I initially saw these ribs I was ... concerned. Totally unwarranted tho. These ribs are absolutely delicious. So good....Naked ribs, amazing rub, and the crust! Wow. I'm changed. I am forever a Bucky's believer.More

We left St. Augustine early because of Dorian and headed to visit a daughter in Greenville. Again, one of our top adventures is finding local places to dine. Our daughter took us to this local restaurant that is apparently well known for dine-in, carry-out and...catering. They did not disappoint! The chicken and pulled pork were both raved about during our meal. This is a down to earth establishment so come casual and enjoy a great meal at a reasonable cost.More

We have had Bucky's Bar-B-Q many times, but we recently went to their restaurant on Roper Mountain Road. We enjoyed the same delicious food (with a great choice of sides). The prices are good, too. The restaurant is a throwback to the past and is...worth the experience. Our grandchildren enjoyed having their picture made with Bucky.More

I do not understand why Bucky's is not rated higher. We have eaten at most, if not all of the BBQ places in Greenville and Bucky's by far outshines the rest. The best ribs and smoked chicken we have ever put in our mouths. The...sweet potatoe crunch, green beans and coleslaw taste like they are from from scratch and are better than the "pre-made" sides you get at most other BBQ places. Their pulled pork is always tender and juicy with enough chop that you get a little bit of crispy mixed in. We also get a smoked turkey every Thanksgiving which is only about $40 - can't beat it. We love Bucky's!More

Wife and I dined here on a recent Saturday afternoon. She had the cowboy beans and sweet potato crunch as the sides with her pulled pork. I actually changed up my order getting chicken / pulled pork combo with mac n cheese and green beans....Our food was hot and fresh. We received ample helpings of pork and I received so much chicken that I took it home for a meal a few days later. We both chose sweet tea as our drink. We placed a to-go order for our teenage son who we were picking up after tennis practice. He was ecstatic that he was having Bucky's for his dinner. This our favorite, reasonably priced go-to BBQ location in the upstate. Never disappoints.More
