Question...What do you Think...

The poster has stated they never spend time there.

I did offer a suggestion.

Question...What do you Think...

I'm not sssuming anything..the person has admitted to having never spent any time there.

And I did make a post suggesting Noah's for pizza which is close to the OP's route and open on Sunday.

Thank you..yes

Apparently i'm not up on the protocol...

Although i did not direct my comment to anyone in particular...was a general question directed at the group..

Question...What do you Think...

Can people that have never spent any time in a particular city have the knowledge to properly judge that city and offer a knowledgable opinion on the food scene in that locale..?

I ask only because I have been "moderated" into oblivion when I question someone's opinion regarding a city in which they admittedly have no first hand experience...

Would you trust such an opinion?

Interested to hear all opinions...

Two Charleston-area questions

fwiw..totally agree with you re Sweatman's..for me it's a total waste of time and effort..

as for Scott's..it's an "experience".. i suggest everyone go at least once..kinda like Cooper's store, which is on the other end of the spectrum..

Two Charleston-area questions

Hmm..Scott's or McCabe's..sorta depends.. McCabe's has a small buffet and dining room..Scott's is take-out only and about all they sell is meat and sliced bread..if your coming down I-95 my rec is to hit McCabe's and sample the buffet then drive over to Hemingway and pick up a pound (or 2) to snack on later..hint: the pork rinds at Scott's are very good so pick up a baggie (or 2) and get a loaf of bread.. If I recall both places are cash only (local checks accepted at McCabe's)...I know that didn't answer your question but that's the way I'd do it...

Dinner Time in The Low Country?

My guess is the urbanization of the population has largely put an end to the tradition.

Looking for Myrtle Beach dining with ocean view

Not that easy to find a restaurant with a decent sunset view in the Myrtle Beach area.

The Gulfstream Cafe in Garden City may be your best choice. Be sure to sit upstairs..

BBQ..J.D Hite's..in West Columbia..cash..fri. and sat. only...get the rib cut..it may be the only thing you find in Columbia that blows you away..make sure you specify "no loin" when you order..take out only..go early..or order ahead by phone... http://www.hitesbbq.com

Mai Thai..also in West Columbia..run by some very nice Thai folks.. very popular..i like the stuffed chicken wings..the tom yum soup..and the Mai Thai duck..but thats just me..it's all good.. http://maithais.com

Noah's Antica Pizzeria..on the other side of town from where you are..hard to find..set back off the road in a nondescript group of shops..could be worth the trouble though..i like his Pizza Noah, pancetta and blueberries..woaa, it's killer..

I think they must all mean the same thing. I do like your idea though!

Charleston for 5 days in October - help refine our selections

Ahh, you're in luck then. Oddly enough I've never tasted their hash. Hash is one of those things that can be hit or miss...too much liver will kill it for me for example. The old saying about hash is it's got everything in it but the squeal. The best hash I ever had was at D&H in Manning..but that was some time in the previous century. I only go to McCabe's now when I'm over that way. Maurice's, the original location on Charleston Highway fairly close to Hite's has some passable hash but many people shy away from doing business there due to his extremely reactionary politics..enter there at your own risk. And I only mention the place since the subject of hash came up...otherwise it's a total skip. Maybe you'll try some Hite's hash and let us know. :)

And seriously, if you plan to have some rib cut call early and reserve some.

Hite's...open Friday and Saturday only for take out..definitely go for the "rib cut" and when ordering specify "no loin meat, please" .. the slaw is good too. I would suggest you call ahead and reserve the rib cut as they have a limited supply and can sell out quickly. They'll give you some mustard sauce on the side..I'd skip using it.

Their location is very convenient to I-26.

dandan noodles - South Carolina

Have you tried going to Sun Ming and sweet-talking them? I can't imagine they don't know how to prepare it..but maybe they're not set up for it. Other than that I got nothin'. Sorry. Keep us posted.

You're in Charleston, SC..you got 4 bucks (plus tax) and it's Lunchtime..

..I know where I'm goin' .. Ted's Butcherblock for a small chili..

ted's chili
A hearty blend of housemade Italian sausage, beef, tomatoes, red kidney beans and a special mix of seasonings 8 oz-$4

(he does not hold back on the chili powder)

Likely the best 4 bucks you'll spend in Charleston.

Charleston advice: Husk or McCrady's? FIG or SNOB?

Two of us walked into Peninsula Grill at 10:30 on a plain Tuesday evening a couple weeks ago...requested dessert..and were seated..ordered a piece of coconut cake and the banana panna cotta...the cake was heavenly..the panna cotta was transcendent..the portion of cake was quite generous..we finished it the next morning for breakfast..so my advice is have both..

Charleston, SC

Had lunch at Husk recently..ordered the fried chicken skins...truly decadent..with the added benefit of being fried on both sides ..without all that pesky protein..pretty much all you need for lunch..i'd order them again.

New pizza place in Irmo, SC

Got by there yesterday. I hope they're successful too. I tasted an off menu special pizza with pancetta and blueberries...mozz and a sprinkle of parma cheese...it was very good with a nice thin crispy crust that was slightly charred at the edges...

Chatted a bit with the co-owner...very personable fellow...said they were expanding into the adjoining space to add some seating for dining in and beer and wine offerings. So nice to see someone bring a superior product to the area. I'll be back...

Thanks for the tip SweetPea!
