Home Team is tons of fun and the food is fantastic. The downtown location is easy to find and has plenty of parking around. It's easy to get on the waitlist using Yelp! and even with a group of 8 we only waited a few minutes once we arrived. The atmosphere is laid back and there is a spot for live music performances outside. The food is nothing fancy but full of flavor! I love the the fried okra snack and you can't go wrong with any of their meats. Don't miss one of the delicious frozen drinks - the gamechanger or the irish coffee - both are incredible; maybe get the gamechanger to drink while you eat and finish the meal with the coffee ;) I've never had bad service here or bad food. All around A+++ restaurant.

Home Team is always a good choice! I love their hamburger with tots, but really I go for the Iced Irish Coffee and Game Changers.

Food was great but due to the fact of our color it was awkward even tried to tip the guy that brought our food and our appetizer and he even looked at us weird like what is this for the waitress seems like she really didn't want to serve us but that was her job and due to the fact that I'm in the same business and do the same exact thing that she does at the same exact type of restaurant I would have never treated my customers no matter what's going on in the world like that especially if I know it's their first time I would have made sure they had an amazing experience and by the way I was a secret shopper so thanks but no thanks

Great food and great service! The nachos are a meal in itself and the turkey wrap was amazing!! This place did not disappoint

HTB always great! We always take out of town guests there. We had nachos, pork carnitas, pork sliders were excellent. Service was great!

Love it! Every experience here is fantastic. Huge dining room area inside and outside. The patio is dog friendly and there is a bandstand for live music. They have a great beer selection and insanely good frozen game changers (get a large one)!! The food is out of this world. You have to try the brisket, mac and cheese, and collard greens for your entree - chicken wings and loaded tots for your appetizer - and banana pudding for dessert.

This is one our favorite places here. We go once every few weeks. The wings and white sauce are to die for And the BBQ pork and even the salads are delicious. We love it.

This might just be my favorite restaurant I've ever been to. Everything about Home Team makes me eager to return, and I make it a priority every time I'm in the area. The food is incredible. Seriously, not a bad thing on the menu. I have a hard time passing over the smoked wings (get the death relish on the side), but every single item I've had has been top notch. Gamechangers are the absolute best...get a big one! The amazing food is made even better by great people, choice tunes, vibrant decor, and heaps of stickers. What more can you ask for???

Pouring rain when we visited on Thu evening 2/20/20. But Home Team BBQ-W. Ashley was busy. We came on b/c they were highly recommended by local friends who only go here for bbq.They were hosting a large group of construction business people in one section. We found seats at the bar around 5pm. The take out side was also very busy. Place was filling up quickly. We ordered a local craft beer ($6) & a wine ($6) and looked over the food menu. We first ordered 1/2 doz of Fiery

Food and service were outstanding! Leslie our server provided us with great service as well as food recommendations. The wings and brisket sandwich were delicious! This was our first visit but not our last! Wish you had a location in the Myrtle Beach area!


Food was AMAZING. I had the baked queso, mac and cheese, and breakfast burrito. Flavor was phenomenal on all plates. I can’t wait to return.

Love it! Great BBQ! Their sides are just as amazin'! Fried ribs shown here with collards, creamy mac and cheese and pickled onions. Whatever you choose, you won't be disappointed eating at Home Team BBQ! Just looking at this pic makes you hungry, doesn't it?!

Jeremiah Daniels

The whole experience was fantastic. From the moment I was greeted at door, all the way until I walked out. There was a very nice urban-modern vibe that was great. Service was amazing and the food was out-of-this-world. A definite must go to place

Nicholas DiMatteo

Let me tell you about this place. If you're looking for food or drink you're not gonna be dissapointed. We had a guy every 10 minutes making sure we had what we wanted. Order the wings and if possible the fried ribs. You won't regret it. Enjoy this

Katie Mathews

Great atmosphere, beer menu was vast with tons of great options. The food was fantastic with several sauces to choose from. Do yourself a favor and get the smoked wings appetizer, they're perfectly cooked and crispy and the white BBQ sauce with them is heavenly. Also, the brisket tacos are heavenly!

Ryan Bridgen

Placed a To-go order from here and it was really good. Had the half chicken with collards and beans and the wife had the half chicken with Brunswick stew and Mac and cheese. All tasted really good. Everything was packed perfectly for a To-go order in separate containers.

Carolyn Rivers

Everyone seemed to really enjoy the food they ordered. Service was pretty fast too.

The food is great, but the place on a game night is completely chaotic. The boiled peanuts come in a larger quantity than you'd expect, so be aware of that. The pork cracklins and cheese were addictive. For the most part, everything was excellent - tacos, sandwiches, meat plates, etc. The only thing that really stood out as weird is the mac & cheese. They put some type of mustard in there so theres just a little too much horseradish for my taste. If that's your cup of tea, you'll like it, but it stood out to me in a less positive way. The BBQ burrito with the brisket, however...my god that's amazing. It sounds like a funky fusion gimmick, but it is legitimately delicious and oddly satisfying considering all the flavors they throw in it. I'd love to get another one when I'm back in town. It's a super fun and super LOUD space, but I like the concept and the layout. It's sizable for large parties or games. Definitely give it a try.

Hard to rate Home Team because we only stopped in for the wings. We plan to come back for sure. Service was good and the wings delicious! The rub does have some sweet to it so be sure you like that before ordering!

Margaux S.

Worst service. They employees have a chip on their shoulder and feel the need to laugh and reprimand people. Wouldn't go here if you'd like a nice experience. To all the managers and employee, thanks for the worst experience I could've had. Felt bad spending my hard earned money. This place in the past three years has gone down hill.


The pulled pork was delicious, but the brisket was just so so. I really loved the sweet red sauce and the mustard sauce.

I will admit we visited because we watch Southern Charm, however it did not disappoint at all! I had the chicken sandwich & game changer drink & it was excellent! Hubs had the fried ribs & said they were great. We also had yummy tots & queso & Mac & cheese . Our waiter was great, I think his name was Luke. I loved the 6 sauces at the table, the hot red & sweet red were my favorites! Before Charleston we were in Myrtle Beach & I told my husband I didn't have a great drink or dessert there so I wanted it in Charleston & the drink requirement has been met by the Gamechanger!

It's a cute location, nice atmosphere. I ordered the pulled chicken sandwich. It would have been 5 stars but the "pulled chicken" was not what I expected. It was chunks of chicken as opposed to the shredded chicken I was expecting. Overall the food was tasty but I wasn't 5/5 impressed. It also took longer than expected to get the drinks we ordered.

Dana Dawson

Not impressed with the downtown location. The atmosphere was hectic and there were people next to my table downing drinks and cursing loudly. This might have been a place to go when I was in college but not with my family. As for the food I was surprised at how below average the taste was given all the good reviews. I did not finish my dish, the coleslaw was terrible, the pulled pork cold. I was hoping for a good experience since there are numerous locations, but we will continue frequenting the other bbq restaurants in the area where the food is consistently good and the atmosphere is family friendly.

I visited here from out of town for the first time. The food was phenomenal! The service left alot to be desired. The server had zero personality. They took the food we wanted boxed to take home and never brought it back. They were taking the payment and tip before we had even left. I have heard good things about the restaurant so I will visit again, but as much as we paid I expected better.


Food and drinks were good, service was excellent. Clearly a popular restaurant for good reasons, but a bit too loud and crowded for me.

Bilal A.

Always good! I've never had a bad experience at this location. The staff is always friendly and the service is always good, even when they are busy. I really like the dimension of this location. There's a variety ey if seating areas depending on your mood I guess. They have a tradition. Restaurant seating area, a bar, a screened patio, an outdoor patio, and what I can best describe as a cool backyard style outdoor seating with picnic tables. Menu hits every base when it comes to BBQ. Great variety of beers and they have a Kids menu. Prices arre also VERY reasonable considering it's downtown charleston. My only complaint is that the BBQ Plate is typically dry for my taste. The sauces though are really good, so it's really not that big of a deal.

It was....underwhelming. 3 meat platter: a clump of pulled pork (not bad), ONE slice of smoked turkey (cold), one big sausage (cold); collard greens (OK), baked beans (best of the bunch). Beer was good. However, nothing about the meal to make me say "WOW". I shall not return.

Brandy S.

Hands down, the best BBQ that we've ever had. The deep fried ribs were juice-running-down-your-chin juicy and delicious. The meat plate was also a home run. The hash side was well balanced, well seasoned, and yummy. The cauliflower was also some of the best I've ever had and I eat A LOT of roasted veggies. The collard greens were good and the sauces were diverse.

This may have been our best dining experience on our trip to Charleston and definitely falls within top ten ever! We made our way to a couple of the breweries in the area where Home Team is and by the time lunch rolled around, we were at an intersection full of a few highly recommended places. The shear smell of walking by Home Team...we knew that was our place. It was pretty crowded when we arrived (football was on), but we were seated immediately. Two young (well, younger than us!) girls were sitting next to us and asked if we went there often...they insisted we get the painkiller drink (which I guess is technically called the "game changer?") - I guess it is THE thing to get there, and I can understand why. We were definitely feeling it after one, and it was clear they had had a few! lol...anyway, the food.....phenomenal. Our favorite BBQ is Hometown in Brooklyn, and this is definitely up there with that. We started with the buffalo chicken dip and it was unlike any other buff dip I have ever tasted. I got pulled chicken with mac and cheese and baked beans for my entree...oh my god. Glorious. My fiance got the chicken and white bean chili as one of his sides...no words. This place is absolutely awesome. Dying to go back!

We are frequent visitors of HomeTeam BBQ in downtown Charleston. It is a great place to meet friends for a drink or to grab a bite to eat and watch football. We love the frozen Irish Coffee + Gamechanger cocktails, plus they have some of the best tater tots + wings in town (ask for some of the sweet-spicy sauce to come with them!) You also can't go wrong with the Pork Rinds (add some of their hot sauce to them with the pimento cheese, and they are perfect!) Be aware if you try to go on a Saturday during college football season, you will have to wait (sometimes up to 1-2 hours) for a table. Easy place for kids, too.

Great service. The brisket sandwich was soooooo good and the pulled pork nachos were amazing. Definitely recommend. We had our kids with us and they both loved it and the staff was very welcoming.


Great lunch spot! Had the pulled pork, Mac & cheese, and green beans. Loved it to the last bite! Parking was a bit hairy especially if you drive a larger vehicle. Arrive early to beat the lunch rush or wait until after the peak.

Omg this is one of my favorite places. The food is outstanding that the atmosphere is awesome! The game changer is there signature frozen drink it’s so yummy but you will feel it just after a couple so watch that. Their beans are to die for! They do have ways to accommodate vegetarians. So no reason to not give it a try.

Deirdre Forgione

Went to Home Team for lunch. The restaurant and bathroom was clean, service super friendly. The bar area looked really nice, and they have a great selection of whiskeys (“brown water”) on the menu.

Brandon Grimes

Literally my favorite BBQ joint. Outstanding Bourbon/Tequila selection. Wings are best wings ever. Get the BBQ pulled pork burrito. It might ruin your life.

Michael Z.

Excellent experience. Warm greeting at the door. Zach, my server, was exceptional! Very attentive. He offered a great suggestions for my lunch selection, checked back on me regularly to ensure I was satisfied, and kept my water glass full. Met a manager Graham who was also gracious. I ordered 2 sliders (juicy and done right) with Mac n cheese (melt in your mouth)! I WILL be back!!!

Steve Romano

Great food. Brisket that melts in your mouth. Mac & Cheese balls were delicious. I sampled several items on the menu. Everything was excellent. Highly recommended for a casual and enjoyable meal out.
