When you're in Columbia whether for game day, business or pleasure, stop by Big T's for old-fashion, pit-cooked barbecue. Order yours over a bed of rice smothered in mild or hot mustard-based sauce, with hash over rice or with a couple slabs of ribs. (The sauce is so good that they bottle it for sale in local groceries.) You can't resist the macaroni, collard greens, mustard greens, green beans or potato salad. And your meal isn't complete without the mouthwatering, homemade desserts. Here's what you may find on the dessert menu: red velvet, lemon, pound, chocolate layer and triple chocolate cakes; banana pudding and peach cobbler. Big T's also serves fish, oxtails, fried chicken and sandwiches. Dine in or carry out.
In 2013, Big T's Bar-B-Que was nominated for the Steve Harvey Hoodie Award for Best BBQ Restaurant.
