Maurice's has been providing the midlands of South Carolina with outstanding barbecue since as far back as I can remember. As barbecue goes, the prices are a bit on the high side, but not exorbitant. And in my opinion, Maurice's makes the best onion rings in the United States. Every batch is made from scratch and they are outstanding, and... More

I've eaten many times at this newer location and the original one going back many years. The ribs, pulled pork and fried chicken are all outstanding, as is the sweet potato casserole. Even on the buffet, which is a great deal at $12 for dinner, everything is very fresh and moist. Even the basic banana pudding is delicious. I'll keep... More

Very good pulled pork and sides. The beans and slaw are some of the best I've eaten. The pulled pork was very good. Not the absolute best I've ever eaten but still quite good. In South Carolina, the sauces are usually mustard based. I know some people prefer tomato based sauce but these mustard based sauces were very good. My... More

Always serves good BBQ but I made the mistake of ordering a slaw dog and a cheese burger for a quick meal. First the slaw dog had no slaw, sent it back and found the dog was burn, dry and old. Then found that the cheese burger had no cheese. Was in a hurry so we had to split the... More

Maurice's is a very traditional mid-state BBQ house with a daily buffet and mouth-watering offerings. The mustard base sauce is German in origin and is like nectar to those raised on it. The hash and rice is just heavenly and the ribs are to die for. If a great old-time BBQ is calling you, head for Maurice's. The Irmo store... More

OMG it's on everything! Why couldn't they just let us decide what kind of sauce we eat. 30 bucks for 2 to eat buffet. Ribs chicken pulled pork and all the fixings, that's cool but everything made of meat was covered in mustard base BBQ sauce. Restaurant tables and other surfaces have sticky feeling and needs a good cleaning. Kinda... More

A nice clean place to eat either sandwiches or a BBQ buffet with all the fixins' ! Easy to reach from I-26, on Lake Murray Blvd. A recent after church visit with children and grandchildren was delightful. The youngest child asked for a ham sandwich in a place famous for BBQ sandwiches !! The young lady taking her order said... More
