Moore’s is closed on Sunday….Sweatman’s is only open on Friday and Sat.. Not sure about Sunday. Careful…Sweatman’s is whole hog "Q" and it is nothing like what most people are use to. Especially when it comes to the ribs.
There is no exterior texture on the ribs. The outside meat is very tasty…Inside very tender. The thing they sell out of first is the skin! I always thought you could go back for seconds…Last time I was there, I seem to recall I did that…Maybe not? I know I was stuffed when we left!
It was like $6.95 last time I was there. What are they charging now?
They do not have a phone and closed down periodically through the year for vacations. ALSO if you are going to go there best to go on Friday around 5 or 6, can’t get there that night then try Saturday before 6pm!! or else you are risksing them running out! They slaughter on WEdnesday, cook on thursday and serve until they run out—-or at least that was how it was all my summer years as a kid at Rock Pond Campground
By the way they have the absolutely best hash you ever had I must agree with QCrazy on that!! It is all you can eat (i think you can go back for more now) but used to be one time through. AWESOME!!!!!
Sweatman’s closes about this time of year for an extended break. Not sure of exact dates.
Unless it’s really out of your way I would run I-81, I-40, I-77, and I-26. When I use to drive from FL to NY I went that way, it’s a very nice trip and faster than I-95. Sorry, I cannot remember any memorable food stops as I usually did it with no overnights.
Moores Barbeque at exit 107 in Kenley, NC cannot be beat………..wonderful pulled pork, greens, fried chicken and hush puppies. The only thing I have had there that was not great (in my opinion) is the cole slaw which is far too sweet. Everything else was terrific and it is dirt cheap! It is only a few yards off the exit, going east.
I forgot to add Redbone Alley in Florence,SC. They serve great food in a unique setting that looks like old Charleston on the inside. I always tell people I know about this place. The shrimp and grits are fantastic as well as the quail with sausage gravy and grits. The steaks and pasta dishes are right on time also. Check it out if you don’t quite make it to Santee and you have to eat. It’s not far off of I-95. Here is the link:
Great thanks for the tip, I was hoping for some cheap interesting eats on the way to SC… any ideas?[;)]
Try Sweatman’s Barbecue in Holly Hill, South Carolina. It’s close to Santee and some of the best barbecue I have ever eaten. I promise it’s as authentic as it gets. The hash is the standard by which all others are judged. There is also a review on this site. Check it out.
Hi, I’m looking for some one-of-a-kind and authentically good food places along I-95 from Southern PA to the center of SC. Any tips about getting around the DC beltway would be helpful too. Thanks!
From PA to Santee, SC along I-95
