A South Carolina tradition since 1939, Melvin Bessinger's Barb-B-Que Restaurants are beloved and famous for the best St. Louis style pork ribs, chicken and 'All Ham' Bar-B-Que in the South. But don't take our word for it, come on down and experience the flavor at one of two locations in Mt. Pleasant and James Island. Thank you for your continued support, y'all!

  • Everything was great on Thursday. The food, service, staff, etc. was all great. We have used ya'll numerous times for our jobsite barbeques, and have had continuous success with it over the last few years. We hope to continue this trend and relationship with Melvin's in the future.
