Went there last night for dinner after reading about them yesterday morning. The burger was very good, atmosphere was good, bar area should be a popular spot, and the servers were very nice and friendly.
They have a few things to work on for it to meet some of the other reviewers statements, but hopefully they will work out these kinks. It's nice now that I don't have to drive to Sullivan's Is. or Park Circle to get a good burger.
By the way, the sweet potato fries have some sort of honey glaze on them. If you like things ultra sweet, you'll like these. If you like traditional sweet tater fries, you'll want to avoid or request that they do not put the honey on the fries.
Two burgers, two beers and tip = $31
Best neighborhood restaurant and bar I have been to in a LONG time!! The service is helpful and friendly. The food is delicious! There are so many things to pick from on the menu EVERYONE should leave happy! I highly suggest this spot. It's one of those restaurants I can see spreading quickly!!
Finally a restraunt you can honestly feel comfortable in and have fun with the bonus of great food and good service! wouldnt ask for anything more!
Love this place! Try the grilled cheese and brownie a la mode...the salad with goat cheese is also excellent!
A great addition to Folly Beach! Stoked that "The Plainfield Project" gonna b playin' at your place Fri Aug 28th!!!! It's gonna b a damn good time!
We've been to Rita's 7 or 8 times since they opened and have been fortunate to have had good food, great service and always a jam good time. Possibly, its because we sit out on the paitio, but I always notice management presence and we've never once had an issue with the food or the service. Washout Wednesdays are our favorite, but for us, any time is a great time at Rita's.
Love the location, decent menu, but very, very poor service. We had to ask another waitress twice where our waitress was. She even came out once, looked at us as we tried to nod her over, and walked right back in! we politely paid our bill and left. I think this place has great potential, but a word to the manager: Meet with your staff and emphasize customer service above all else. Without this key ingredient most restaurants eventually fail...
We left the high priced confines of Mt P one night and headed to Park Circle for a much needed change of scenery.
First stop: some grub at Sesame. What a great place! Friendly staff, unpretentious decor, great beer selection, and best of all....awesome food at uninflated prices. I had the "Down South" burger, and it was fantastic! One word of caution: here, you can order your burgers any cooking temp. you want. I ordered mine medium-rare, and had to scoop out the very very center, as I think I did hear a faint 'moo' from it. This didnt deter me from gobbling up the rest, and wont stop me from returning....next time I'll just say "Medium"!
Highly recommend visiting this little 'burger joint' that is truly a gem!
Loved it! Went for lunch and had the bistro burger (minus the steak sauce) and it was excellent! Couldn't eat the fries, which I NEVER leave behind, because I was stuffed. Had the bloody orange margarita and it was just okay. Will try another concoction next time. We were there around 1:00 and it filled up quickly but the service was quick and our waitress was really friendly and efficient. Will become a regular when visiting the area!
Nothing special - mediocre food, poor service and not worth the price. It's too bad really. Even gave it a second chance - bummer.
Ate here last week, and was delighted at some aspects, disappointed in others.
1) The burger was cooked perfectly (Medium, as I ordered). Awesome.
2) Service was great... attentive.
3) Great beer selection.
4) Great quality meat...
5) The sweet potato fries are a-mazing.
1) Everyone at my table commented that their burger was under-seasoned... and I agree...
2) The bun could be improved...
Went there this past Fri. night for dinner w/ my folks. Their burger is the best thing this side of Poe's and may be better when you factor in service, atmosphere, etc... The chef's pre-made burger menu was great as was their build your own menu. I had the S. Carolina burger and could probably eat it every day. The sweet tater fries were great and so where the onion ring app. Everything there is homemade. Even my Dad, who doesn't like anything, said that his Cuban was as good as an Cuban he's had in Miami. They also have a respectable beer menu. This place will definately make it into rotation!
I just ate there for the first time this past Friday and was very pleased with the food as well as the service. The blonde girl, Jen I believe her name was, was a sweet down to earth girl, while even the kitchen staff were upbeat and friendly. I'm a buger kind of guy and a ketchup snob, so I was really taken by surpise at the quality and taste of the burgers and homemade ketchup. Do yourself a favor and try it out...you won't be disappointed.
Walker, Fries aren't included with the burger at any time. You order a burger, you get a burger. You want fries, you order fries.
Sesame’s is one of the "better" burger places around the Chas area, not the greatest, but better.
This is nice cozy place with an interesting fare along with their burgers. Their fried pickles are awesome and a must try!!
The house made kitchen/mustard/mayo is interesting, so don't freak if it doesn’t taste like store bought crap.
The drink specials are pretty good, the staff is excellent (except when it gets WICKED busy) other than that, this place has it all: Live music, trivia, etc. Love the atmosphere!
I love getting the "South Carolina" chicken sandwich with the homemade pimento cheese! The daily specials are usually interesting with more hits than misses. My favorite sides are the sweet potato fries and the grilled corn on the cob with chipotle butter, cheese, and lime. Also, they have a Beer special board. These aren't beer specials like $1 natty lights. They are more like $2.50 Chocolate stouts and $3.50 high gravity brews.
Check out Sesame if you somehow wander into Old North Charleston. It's next to North Charleston High School, down the road from the Riverfront Park. http://www.northcharleston.org/Departments/CulturalArts_Facilities.aspx
One of the best burgers in town. Try all of their special burgers, you might not realize that you'll like a fried egg- and beet- topped burger. Also the appetizers are really good, especially the flatbread with homemade pimiento cheese. Oh, and they have a great beer selection, with a couple specials each month.
How anyone could rate the burgers as "ok" obviously hasn't had the Italian and/or the new zealander... My only complaint is the prizes for trivia night are pretty weak...
This place is good. Anyone who thinks they dont have the best burgers in town is on crack.
