85 South serves up good old-fashioned Southern barbecue, just like yer mama used to make - it won't blow your socks off, but it's ribs, pulled pork and draft beer, all for less than $100 each.

It’s a rare and beautiful thing to experience true Southern barbecue cooking in Asia but 85 South does it with heart. It’s far from perfect yet – but well worth tapping up

A meal for two including some sweet tea and beer comes to around HK$500. 85 South is worth returning to for its succulent meats, tangy red slaw and service with a smile.

The ribs were very disappointing: not very flavorful, and so tough that they were almost impossible to bite through: it felt like you had to wrestle with them.

Take it from this Southern girl that 85 South is legit! If you want some real South in yo’ mouth, then stop by, grab a pitcher of beer or tea, and settle in for some seriously good eats!

For those times when all I want is simple, fuss-free food that hits the spot, I think I can see a revisit to 85 South on the cards.

I preferred the pulled pork, which was more moist, though this was a bit uneven as there were some very nice, juicy pieces, but also some of the harder bits from the edge thrown in.

The tender ribs which were lean and flavourful was delicious with the red which its thicker texture and BBQ undertone. The slaw was tangy with a fresh and delicious crunch, and perfectly evened out the heaviness from the BBQ meat.

Because of its very small menu, 85 South can focus its effort in making sure they serve only the best fare, and do it well, much like how small eateries are run in Japan.

It’s not going to be the best BBQ you’ll ever have in your life – but for a weekday, casual nom….Fuck yeah!

Even though the food is simple and there are no amazing food plating, these are comfort and delicious food that I enjoy a lot.

Verdict - the food was alright while the service left a lot to be desired. I mean I don't mind the counter service even though the prices are a bit high for this kind of fast food model.
