Cincinnati to Hilton Head

Just returned from our trip and we had a great time. Listed below are the restaurants we visited with comments:

Tupelo Honey (Asheville) - another awesome meal
Sweatman's BBQ (Holly Hill) - Great BBQ and a tour of the smokehouse!
Sea Shack (HHI) - Waited in line for an hour (but worth it) we have fresh Cobia - loved it
Fiesta Fresh (HHI) - Ate there twice - kids loved the tacos. A huge hit for us.
Flamingo's (HHI) - Ok donuts. A little overrated.
Harold's Diner (HHI) - Pretty good breakfast - kids loved sitting at the counter
Topside at the Quarterdeck (HHI) - Not bad. Mainly ate there due to location of our dolphin cruise.

There were a couple others I can't remember - probably weren't very good. All-in-all, a great trip made better by some of your all's recommendations. Thanks for the information!

Thanks to everyone for the tips. There were some we have heard of or experienced but most are new and sound like great places. I will be letting everyone know where we visit and our take. I am sure we will be more than satisified. Thanks again!

We have been to Asheville several times and never had a bad meal, which is why we planned to stop there. We are somewhat familiar with Downtown (visited Tupelo Honey before) so we would be open to driving wherever. Thanks

Just wondering if there are any "can't miss" spots between Cincinnati and Hilton Head. We are traveling there this Friday, 6-11-10. We will be traveling through Lexington KY, Knoxville TN, Asheville NC, Spartenburg SC and Columbia SC. Thanks!

Cincinnati Restaurants And Markets

Try Avril-Bleh on Court Street for fresh meats. This is the premier butcher in town. There are also a couple on the west side that are excellent. Owner Len is always on site and meats are very fresh. They also do custom orders.

Bridgetown Finer Meats (westside). Great neighborhood butcher. They raise their own cattle also.

Try Findlay for chicken (Busch's), sausage (Kroeger Bros.) and cheeses (various).
www.findlaymarket.org

Try Keegan's Seafood in Anderson (www.keegansseafood.com). Owner is always on site and very helpful. He has many years in the business.

Kroger in Anderson is one of the best local chain grocery stores. Jungle Jims is a destination store but not very convenient. The Party Source in Belleview is also a destination store. Both are excellent for beer and wine. Shop the Party Source for Liquor's.

Have fun!
