April: The best part of the 20 minute drive out to Clover, SC and Courtney’s BBQ was being able to smell the smoker about 1 ½ miles before actually arriving at the restaurant. Courtney’s is a family owned restaurant and has a very large dining room. Even on a Friday evening there were plenty of tables at which to sit and the service was very quick. The pulled pork was very smoky but not spicy. The sauces were a nice compliment to the smoky flavor, but did not offer any spice. The portions were ample and served without fanfare in plastic trays. I really enjoyed the option of ordering a baked potato with my meal instead of some of the more fattening sides. This allowed me to enjoy the barbeque and take the potato home for leftovers. With this great place just up the road from our home, we will definitely make many more repeat visits.
Lane: A special note to our buds Jimmy and Erin Fitzpatrick who came out to Courtney’s Barbecue with us, they are what good friends and good food are all about.
