  1. Minero

    Tacos are some of the best I've ever had, queso fundito is tasty. The masa croutons on the wedge are genius creations. Silverware is under the table BTW.

  2. McCrady's

    Inventive cuisine, pre-Prohibition cocktails and a gorgeous space that dates from the early 1800’s make McCrady’s one of the best restaurants that this city has to offer. [Eater 18 Member]

  11. Husk

    Brock isn't reinventing Southern food. As a result, he (and Husk) has become a torchbearer for an honest style of home cooking that many of us never tasted until now.

  12. 167 Raw

    Hands down the best lobster roll I have ever had. I would come back to Charleston just for it. Take note that 167 is tiny so expect a wait but it's totally worth it!!
