This is a good southern all you can eat Bar-B-Q buffet. There was a nice variety of main dishes & sides. Everything was delicious.

Bbq to me has to include beef brisket, but what I got here was piles of pork and chicken....so I was seriously disappointed right away.... The sauces, well I've had much better....and that made everything more average...with none of the meat tasting exceptional.... Lots of veggies, and many of the selections were above average....which was very nice... The peach cobbler... More

Great BBQ I love the pulled pork, comes with no sauce, but they have several sauce so you can add what you like and how much sauce you want. They also offer BBQ chicken and pork ribs You can get just a sandwich or an all you want to eat buffet. Go hungry and get the all you can eat.... More

Some of the best down home food! It's a little rough on the eyes but the food is awesome! I wouldn't go there if I was trying to eat healthy but if you want some good southern food it's the place! Also it's super affordable at only $10 per person for all you can eat!

My lust for some real Southern Food was sated when we had a family dinner at Dukes and filled our plates high with THE BEST southern cookin' I have had in a long time! Collards, cornbread, okra and tomatoes, fried okra, ham, pulled pork, squash casserole green beans, black-eyed peas and sweet tea. And can forget the banana puddin'. All... More

I actually came here two years ago pregnant. But my family and I loved eating here. The restaurant is buffet style with every southern food you can think of. The food is made with love and amazing taste and flavor. I wanna stop by there every time I'm in SC. 😛😋🙌🏾

Have been eating at Dukes many years and I always leave happy. The BBQ is very good. There are 4 or 5 sauces to apply on top of bbq if desired and each is unique and tastey. The fried chicken is also very good so make sure to try. Lots of sides to choose from that are just ok. Couple... More

I haven't reviewed many restaurants in my own hometown in the past. That's a problem I intend to resolve. Aiken, SC has a lot of great places to eat, whether you're looking for fast food to pizza to fine dining. If you're looking for great barbecue, the south side of Aiken on Whiskey Rd has a treat to offer. Duke's... More

This is a popular barbecue restaurant of the all-you-can-eat kind. We got there Saturday evening and almost all tables were occupied by customers already eating. One has to pay in advance before taking a tray and all food and drinks are self service. Restaurant decor is minimum and atmosphere is very informal and quite lively. Food is good for the... More
