Dukes Barbecue disambiguation - does the Whitman St. location in Orangeburg, SC serve veggie sides?

mikeh | Dec 5, 201109:00 AM

Navigating the many different Dukes family restaurant locations between Charleston and Columbia is something of a maze. If you don't believe me, just check out this recent profile on the "empire":

Anyway, I'm going to be driving into Charleston on a Saturday and want to hit up one of the locations that has a full spread of Southern veggie sides. There are two Dukes in Orangeburg alone - based on what I could find, the Chestnut Street location is pretty bare-bones and only has BBQ, slaw, and hash. However, a lot of people like the Whitman St. location a lot more and it seems more "extensive," although I can't find any concrete information on what Southern sides they have and how good they are (homemade, canned?).

I've also seen a lot of strong reviews for the Ridgeville, SC location, which I've confirmed serves up homemade southern sides. Is this location significantly better than Whitman in this regard (or overall)?

I think all the BBQ is cooked in the same place (in Orangeburg), so the difference-maker will be the sides and desserts.
