Restaurants in Batesburg-Leesville, SC

Bring plenty of appetite to Batesburg-Leesville. Eating in this town is on a big scale. One of the best-known barbecue parlors of the Deep South, Shealy’s is a vast, multi-room eatery that has gained reputation for exemplary chopped pork as well as fried chicken since it opened in 1969. Have the pork unsauced, mustard-sauced, or vinegar-sauced; and if you are a fried-chicken aficionado, ask for pulley bones and wings. They’re not part of the regular roster, but usually are available for those in the know. Up the road a piece, Wiz’s Eatery also is a big place with a broad menu of pizza, burgers, sandwiches, house-smoked meats, steaks, and seafood — all of it delivered in eye-popping portions.
