We’re Now Open!

We source the thickest cuts of meat and trim them up, just like we do for competition.

Then, our Pitmasters hand-apply our fresh dry rubs before slow-smoking them in a live-wood smoker stoked with genuine hickory logs. To lock in that deep-down smokiness, each tender cut is finished on the grill, creating our famous char-grilled sweetness on the outside. Our tender, juicy ribs and chicken are amazing straight from the grill or topped with one of our award-winning sauces. It’s the best darn BBQ you’ll taste in the Carolinas! View the menu here.

Famous Daves Fort Mill South Carolina


Famous Dave is the most awarded Pitmaster in history — a true originator blessed with a great sense of taste and a passion to create only the best of the best. Even among BBQ champions, Dave is recognized as the authority on the art of cooking with smoke and flame.

Dave’s passion for ribs began as a young boy in Chicago. His father would bring home the best-tasting ribs, slow-smoked by street vendors using 55-gallon drums. They were legendary ribs smoked just like the champion Pitmasters did way down in the Deep South. And thus, his story begins.

What Makes Great BBQ?

You hand rub each slab with spices, then slow smoke’m in a pit of smoldering hickory like the champion Pitmasters in the Deep South. These ribs are so good right out of the smoker—try ’em without the sauce—just order your bones naked!

Best BBQ in South Carolina

From One of Our Customers

“The best barbeque in or around Fort Mill, hands down. The ribs are amazing and the chicken falls right off the bone. No doubt this is going to be a regular lunch and dinner destination for me. Also, the management and staff are the most attentive and friendly I’ve ever seen. My only complaint is that I can only give it a 5-star rating, deserving of much more than that.”
– Salvatore I.
