Pining for pulled pork

  • Follow Things to Do

I've been in the mood for barbecue of late, so I took a road trip to the wilds of Martinez for a small plate of chipped pork, hash and rice, and potato salad from Cleve Edmunds Bar-B-Que, 3935 Washington Road.

The place aced the Lunch Money criteria:

- It was fast. All the barbecue and side dishes are in bins behind the counter where you order, and they're dipped out hot and fresh.

- It was cheap: $7.55 for a small plate. I added an iced tea (I forgot to ask for unsweet and had driven off with the takeout plate before I noticed) for $1.55.

- It was decent. The chipped pork was cooked just right (not mushy) and the Edmunds sauce has just enough of a vinegar bite to it without being overbearing. The hash and rice are solid, but the potato salad had a bit too much dressing for my taste. I'll be back, but I'll try the slaw next time.

The servers are prompt and courteous, and the interior is clean but nothing fancy. As with any good barbecue place, you get two slices of white bread with your meal.

Edmunds is open 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday-Tuesday, and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday. Call them at (706) 863-4277.

Lunch Money is going on a barbecue binge in the next few weeks, trying out a variety of barbecue joints around Augusta and Aiken. Any suggestions? Log on to Lunch Money at
