Sweatman’s Barbecue in the exurbs of Holly Hill, SC, population 1277, comes as close to being in the middle of nowhere as any restaurant I’ve ever seen. They do well because the barbecue is a real draw. Nancy was very enthusiastic. I am not a big fan of the SC mustard sauce, but this was really good – especially the ribs. And you get banana pudding without asking. So far, this is the best place in SC.
