For those travelling through the Spartanburg, SC area, esp on I-26 , who want to exit and get some great barbecue without having to drive through the center of town (9 miles south), here is an easier, quicker way to get there.
Currently, Exit 22 is closed. From exit 21AB, take the exit toward S-burg and make the first right onto E. Blackstone (Rt 215). From there, stay on Rt 215 for 10.4 miles until it deadends into Rt 56. Bull Hawg's is right there on the right side of the Pauline General Store. (There is a critical left turn at 8.1 miles)
Beware, tho--they close promptly at 7 PM Tues-Sat (closed Sun and Mon) Twice I've gotten there 2 or 3 minutes after 7 and got shut out--but it was worth a return trip.
