“Now THIS is real BBQ!!”

Willie Jewell's Old School BBQ
Ranked #46 of 191 Restaurants in Aiken
Restaurant details
Reviewed 8 February 2017 via mobile

Folks, in all of my culinary escapades across the Southeast I have NEVER eaten better Beef Brisket than I got here...and this new restaurant is a GEM in every way as well...

Their smoked chicken, my lady says, is the best she's ever had.....moist, flavorful, tender.....not dry or stringy like so many others, she's eaten....

As to their Brunswick Stew....well, they use beef brisket AND pulled pork in their Brunswick Stew, which in my opinion makes it seriously good stuff, my friends...

They also use Beef Brisket in their Baked Beans, which are NOT like any canned product you"ll ever taste....yum-yum good my lady says...

Their four main BBQ sauces are some of the best I've ever tasted...and like REAL professionally-prepared BBQ sauces are kept warm in their own pots at the sauce station....until you fill your sauce cups...

Our two favorites sauces are the Sweet Sassy and the Hickory Smoked.....there are also a mustard-based sauce and a spicy HOT sauce for those who prefer something different...

Now, if you have room (or in this case even if you don't because they're so good) their desserts are the best way to end such a delectable meal....i had their Peach Cobbler (which had lots of peach pieces in it) and my lady had their Bread Pudding (which surprisingly had pecans in it which she loved, she says)...

Willie Jewell's is going to be a regular stop for us from now on....that I promise....

Ribs & chicken were outstanding. Creamed corn with bacon side was yummy. Other sides were good as well. Friendly service and affordable.

Back for the second round at this location . Tried the chicken and beef brisket this time . (still got the sausage and ribs, couldn't avoid it!) My daughter thought the hash and rice was a little sweet , but I liked it. The chicken was amazing , although the leg bone was broken , and I got several shards in with the meat . Be careful ! The beef brisket was better than any I've had outside of Texas and Kansas City! The baked beans were delicious and great for dipping fries. Once again , very satisfied , and in my opinion , the best Bbq around .

If you prefer sit down (non-buffet) and smoked BBQ, this is the place. The meat does not even need any sauce. Perfect without, but they do have 4 special sauces and a variety of other sauces. I believe the BIGGEST plus for our family is...they have Beef Brisket. We have been twice since they opened a few weeks ago and plan on going once a month to try everything they offer. Another plus for me, they have smoked turkey and sausage. The sides are awesome, even Brunswick stew. And desserts, we tried the Bread Pudding...yum...finally someone serves bread pudding without raisins, but it is served with a Southern flair...yes...pecans! Any ways, I could go on and on. Definitely would recommend!
