ROSEWOOD DRIVE

1332 Rosewood Drive, Columbia, SC 29201 | 803.667.9533

CLOSED FOR REPAIRS COME SEE US AT 5 POINTS – Nobody knows for sure when things began.  The place seemed to grow out of the woods over night.  Local legend says that a mysterious stranger appeared from the railroad tracks one full moon night with a pig and built a cook-shed.  The rest is history.  The Southern Belly BBQ has since become a local favorite, known for gut-busting creative barbecue sandwiches and sauces, ice cold locally brewed beers and beautiful friendly staff.  A popular hangout for University of South Carolina staff and students and the downtown Columbia foodie scene, all are invited to come in…we have some flax golden pig tails to spin.

Monday-Sunday: 11:00 am – 10:00 pm

 

 

 

FIVE POINTS

819 Harden Street, Columbia, SC 29205 | 803.764.3512

In 2015 Southern Belly opened a second location in Five points, Columbia South Carolina’s Historic college entertainment district.  Same menu, same friendly staff, but just a walk down the hill from the University of South Carolina campus and in the center of the college food and drink scene.

Monday-Sunday: 11:00 am – 10:00 pm

COLONIAL LIFE

1410 Colonial Life Blvd, Columbia, SC 29210 | 803.888.7367

In 2016 Southern Belly opened a third location at the Colonial Village on Colonial Life Boulevard and boasts parking for 100 vehicles.  Just a few miles from downtown Columbia and less than a minute off of I-26, this location is super convenient for anyone visiting the Riverbanks Zoo or looking for convenient parking just outside the city.  Also located next to one of the states largest employers Colonial Life, it’s quickly becoming a bustling lunch spot for Columbia’s working professionals and a favorite after church hangout for NewSpring  church members each Sunday.

Monday-Sunday: 11:00 am – 10:00 pm
