The Grocery

Published on August 30, 2012 by in Uncategorized

4 Cannon $$$ – Dinner & Happy Hour Southern/Soul, International How to save $: Get a good sampling at Happy Hour where apps are between $5 and $7, wine is discounted and beers are BOGO The Grocery, located on Cannon Street, is one of the new up-and-coming restaurants in Charleston. Well, according to Charleston City Paper or really any other food blog for that matter. But, if you read Eat King Street, you’ll see that it’s not one of our favorites. I mean, if you like stuffy atmospheres and high prices, this might just be your place. I don’t mean to

Fast and French

Published on August 28, 2012 by in Uncategorized

98 Broad French $$-Mid How to save $: Specials are offered each night (Thursdays are Fondue Night) Craving some French food but not craving the prices of La Fourchette or even 39 Rue de Jean? Look no further than Broad St. (right off of King). This hole-in-the-wall restaurant isn’t too hard to miss, what with all the blue and red French flag decoration on the sidewalk. Commonly known as Fast and French, don’t walk past it just because it’s real name is Gaulart and Maliclet. Tricky. The best time to go is on Thursday night because that’s fondue night –

King Street Grille

Published on August 24, 2012 by in Uncategorized

304 King Pub/Bar, American $$ King Street Grille touts itself as an “upscale sports bar,” which appears to be a very recent rebranding. They’ve attempted to “class up” the menu a lot: they’ve added a crown beside each and every one of the “The King’s Recommendations,” removed the beer list altogether (apparently Royalty drinks a red or white wine from their extensive menu that did make the cut). I guess that’s what separates the grills from the Grilles. From a quick glance at their website, it would seem that this is a perfect place to “bro out,” as evidenced from their MMA After

460 King Thai $$$-High How to save $:  You can’t. Ohhh herro… (is it more or less racist since that is a Chinese impression and this is for a Thai restaurant? THINK ABOUT IT.) We’ve found the best Asian cuisine on King Street. But apparently, lots of other King Street-ers have found it, too, given the long waits. It has been rated the #1 Restaurant in Charleston on Urbanspoon for some time now (still holding 87% with over 1,300+ ratings!). Paired with no reservations or call-ahead, this makes for a restaurant you can only visit if you don’t have any plans for

O’Malleys Bar and Grille

Published on August 20, 2012 by in Uncategorized

549 King Pub/Bar Food, Irish How to save $$:  Happy hour from 4-8 p.m. gets you half-priced apps and draft beers. There’s really no other time to go. We went looking for some quick food with cheap prices one night on King Street. Because Charleston is pretty snobby with food, it’s surprisingly hard to find a cheap, fast and good place right on King Street. If you’ve been using O’Malleys appropriately, it’s always involved a fake ID, cheap shots and a tab that Daddy is floating for you (along with your CofC tuition). Well, don’t be alarmed when we tell you it’s

Moe’s Southwest Grill

Published on August 17, 2012 by in Uncategorized

381 King Mexican, Southwest $-Cheap How to save $:  You can often find coupons online for BOGO Moe’s Southwest Grill: the place we’ve all been but never thought of as review-worthy… until we were forced to write one. If you’ve been living under a rock (or, even worse, just not in the South) Moe’s is an Atlanta-based chain with 350 locations focused mostly in the Southeastern US. It is the humble opinion of Eat King Street that in a head-to-head battle with Chipotle or Qdoba, Moe’s will kick their asses every time, hands down–but that might just be because I practically

The Macintosh

Published on August 16, 2012 by in Uncategorized

479B King American $$$$ – Plan on dropping some cash here Part of Indigo Restaurant Group: Includes Oak Steakhouse, O-Ku, & The Cocktail Club The Macintosh is Charleston’s highest-rated restaurant right now on Urbanspoon. Coming in with a 90% rating, you’d expect the food to be good. The good news is: you’ll be right. It may very well get my vote for the best dinner in Charleston. At the very least, it’s secured a top-three rank. And, this past week, it earned a nomination from Bon Appetit magazine as one of the 50 Best New Restaurants in America. Located on Upper King, the big glass doors showcase the inside from the street, but, when we first

Burger Babies

Published on August 14, 2012 by in Uncategorized

NOTE: Burger Babies is now closed. 293 King Lunch, Dinner $ How to save $: Grab a CofC campus coupon book (available for non-students like us if you can find them) and use the BOGO The restaurant opened about a year ago, offering baby burgers — or simply hamburger sliders to the untrained eye. The employees make the burgers pretty fast (I guess these “babies” don’t have to cook as long as the larger-sized ones) and the variety of beef, turkey, chorizo and tofu burgers are sure to please even the pickiest of eaters.         They offer

Wentworth Grill

Published on August 9, 2012 by in Uncategorized

68 Wentworth American, Southern/Soul $$$ How to save $: Use a restaurant.com gift card: we got great deal with $50 off a $100 tab. Ended up paying $67 (meal, wine, tax & tip) for much more expensive meal. I try to make it a point to not do too much research on restaurants before we go to them. I kept the same philosophy on our visit to Wentworth Grill–I had heard of it before from Restaurants.com (which is always a slight hint that they’re desperate for business). I had an inclination that it was attached to a hotel, maybe, but other than

Butcher & Bee

Published on August 7, 2012 by in Uncategorized

654 King Lunch daily & until 3am Thur-Sat $-$$ If you haven’t heard of Butcher and Bee, you’ve surely been living under a rock. Opening in October 2011, the relatively new restaurant on Upper King has made a name for itself quickly — even the New York Times has encourages its readers to try out the sandwich shop on a weekend get-away to the Holy City. Despite being located on King Street, you’ll have to plan to go there because you won’t just walk by. It’s on upper-Upper King, as in: north of Hwy 17. AKA: in the hood. Past Barsa. With that
