BEAUFORT – Driving east from Columbia to the South Carolina coast, the upcountry pine trees give way to the low country Southern Live Oaks draped in Spanish Moss. Approaching the coastal city of Beaufort on Route 21, you cross brackish marshlands that hold the promise of a nearby ocean. Crack the window and you smell salt air.

Sgt. White’s Diner sits at the intersection of Rt. 21 and Boundary Street, just as you arrive in Beaufort. Celebrating 25 years in the barbecue business this year, Sgt. White’s has occupied this particular corner for 17 of them, appropriately placed next to the Piggly Wiggly, a classic Southern institution.
