Default Melvin's In Charleston

Everybody knows that Melvin's makes great Bar-B-Que, but they also make a very, very, hamburger. Anybody down that way needs to try them out. I guess what made it special for me was the fact that it was supposed to be a great Bar-B-Que Restaurant and it was, but I was really surprised at how good a hamburger they made there.

I agree. I live on James Island and Melvin's is by far the best fast food burger you will find.

Oh yes. GREAT burger. I also like his mustard sauce better than his brother's. Melvin's has red pepper flakes in it for an little extra kick. I miss Melvin's and Bessinger's. Now that I'm back in Columbia, I'll hit Maurice's every once in a while, but it's just not the same.

I grew up on James Island. Left many many years ago but last time I was home (2 yrs ago) I went to Bessinger’s and Bowen’s Island Restaurant. Thank goodness it was in November as Bowen’s is way too hot in summer with no AC!

When I lived in Columba I loved Piggy Park!!! I assume it’s still there heading out towards Cayce?

Seafood or BBQ - hard to beat!

I'm surprised with their prices and the stigma attached to it for years that someone else didn't open up a fast food bbq place. I'd think it could do well, especially in a city like Columbia.

Because people still ate there, regardless. The only time I can think of people actually boycotting his establishments was when he took down the American Flags from the flagpoles. He learned really quick that was a worse move than flying the Flag of the Army of Northern Virginia.

Iíve seen all types going in and out of there, and working there. Donít take the bait.

I will say though, if Shealyís opened up a joint in Columbia they would slay.

It looks like that is your mistake.

When I lived in Columbia I always liked going to Palmetto Pig over by Colonial Life Arena. Great BBQ and sides and their mustard sauce is delicious.

I didn't. I was pointing out that the only time folks quit going there was when he took down the American flag. The majority of folks didn't give 2 cents about the other flag.

Not when I'm clearly talking about my love for the basic Bessinger family recipe.

I'm just surprised that fast food bbq isn't a concept that has taken off anywhere really. If there was going to be competition, during that controversy would've been a good time for someone else to enter the market....that's all I was saying.

BBQ is too local. People love their favorite dive spot.

I don't disagree. Maurice's hash is the best I've ever had.
