Re: “Philly's Cheesesteaks

Ahem, sorry but philly's house of cheesesteaks on rivers near the base is a perfect example of how to pull this iconic sandwich off. Sorry to burst everyones bubble.

Re: “Philly's Cheesesteaks

philly native who tried this sub shop for the first time today. their cheesesteak is legit and left me satisfied. I was never a fan of whiz so I don't hold it against them that it isn't available. while I prefer crisper bread the roll was decent with a good balance between a soft/crisp texture.

its a small place that feels like its family run. i sat inside and my order was brought out promptly. staff from the register to the lady who brought out the food were welcoming and friendly. decent prices too.

Re: “Mozzo

The breakfast items and sandwiches are very good and location is super convenient with work. My only downside is I wish the soups weren't soo salty and this has been about 3-4 times now!! Otherwise I really enjoy it there.

Obvious shill above, this place gets one star for despicable marketing tactics.

Re: “Mozzo

I've been there for breakfast just about monthly since they opened, and I love, love, love their bagel sandwiches and breakfast burritos. The portions are large, and they don't skimp on the more expensive parts of the recipe (lox, et cetera).

My only knock on them is that the ordering/service flow isn't logical and sometimes that means a while before your order is taken. But it is never really a "problem."

Overall: big fan.

Re: “Mozzo

The real deal in Charleston Metro ! First, this is the ONLY DELI THAT PREPARES ITS OWN ROAST BEEF, ROAST TURKEY AND CORNED BEEF ON PREMISES. Hot Corned Beef is THE BEST WITHIN 822 miles [NYC]. Secondly, the portions are so large, it is not unusual to see folks rewrapping 1/2 sandwich for later.

Nearby Southern Season Deli and its piggish ownership took over the parking lot but patrons of MOZZO have not been deterred. They keep streaming in for lunch through to 4pm closing. So. Season Deli charges the same or more for sandwiches less than half the size + certainly of much lower quality.

MOZZO bread & salads are fresh-made. MOZZO ROCKS !!

Re: “Southern General

Have eaten there a few times, trying something different each time. The food is great. Nice & laid back atmosphere. They have a very good beer selection. Nice to have a local place on Johns Island to grab a good beer and awesome samich. I would highly recommend. Give it a try.

Re: “Southern General

Both of the shrimp sandwiches here are fantastic, and they make some really fun condiments (sweet potato-garlic kimchi, sweet onion-mustard relish, etc.). I also like their green beans and their macaroni salad with pineapple and green chilies. I haven't been as impressed with their fries or chips so far (too soggy one time, too dry another), but I imagine they'll work out those kinks, soon, if they haven't already. This place is a great option on Johns Island.

Re: “East Bay Deli

Charleston City Paper Readers,

Something has been brought to my attention: East Bay Deli employees have informed my best friend that the manager of the restaurant pockets the gratuities from all credit card and debit card transactions; so, be aware that this selfishness diverts all your well-meaning electronic tips from the rightful hands of the servers and staff directly into the accounts of management.

In my opinion, this greedy practice must come to an end.

Best,

Pronghorn

Re: “Tattooed Moose

I personally like the place. Never had trouble with the service. We really like the wings, as they are huge and spiced just right. But the sandwiches are to die for! Where else can you get duck, pork belly, wonderful Reubens, and other well prepared meats in a great bun? I come down from Summerville a couple of times a month just to eat there. Around Happy Hour, expect to wait on an inside table. Families are there, as well as college kids, and everything in between. The duck fries are unique to the Moose, and are delicious. I'll definitely be back. I hope those who did not like their first experience try them again.

Re: “Tattooed Moose

This one of the better joints in town. They have a handful of very well prepared and creative gourmet sandwiches. Duck fat fries are pretty hit and miss, unfortunately, but I don't mind rolling the dice on them. Good beer selection as well.

Re: “Tattooed Moose

After reading a couple of the bad reviews above, I wanted to come charging in here to the defense of this great place. The food is awesome, the beer selection is good (and always cold) and the crowd is a good mixture of what Charleston is...

That being said, I have to say that they are unfortunately spot on when it comes to reviews of the service and general attitude of the staff. At times it seems as if the hipster style of just being too cool to care bleeds from the atmosphere (where it's okay) to the service (where it's not.)

I go here often and will continue to do so. I humbly ask the ownership to take note of these trends in comments. It can't be all of them have a grudge or caught you on a bad day.

The only thing, in my opinion, anyone could say negatively about this place is the apparent apathy in customer service.

As I said, I will go back and I will continue to recommend it to family and friends. I just hope they get this bit corrected.

Re: “Tattooed Moose

This place SUCKS! Went there today, ordered food and drinks. After 3 drinks (we were waiting patiently) and swatting countless flies on the patio the food never came and our waitress had gone home. Just piss poor. Won't be back. Too many other good places to go in Charleston.

Re: “Charleston Bakery

Its Okay for SC, but by no means an "Authentic Jewish-Style deli" unless that style modifier means "Oh they have some Jewish deli items done passably. Okay, nothing special, nothing worth a drive for, but if you live in the area it works

Re: “Charleston Bakery

Web site advertising, sign on door, and telephone message says hours are 7 AM to 9 PM Tues thru Sun. We drove 20 miles from West Ashley on Fri evening but they were closed at 7 PM. Thought we would try again Sun but call 1st to understand hours. No phone answer but message still says open 7 AM to 9 PM. Finally called emergency number and find they closed at 3 PM. This is needlessly confusing and troublesome to potential customers not yet familiar that wants to try. We won't try again.

Re: “Bon Banh Mi

"Try Bon Banh Mi only if you want some food that excites your taste buds." i hate when people say shit like that. is it supposed to be a challenge for all those people who enjoy flavorless/dull food?

Re: “Bon Banh Mi

Damn tasty food. Try Bon Banh Mi only if you want some food that excites your taste buds. Every sandwich and taco is packed with tantalizing flavor. Service is quick for takeout, and they do deliver downtown. Parking sucks on Spring street.

Re: “Groucho's Deli

I used to love Groucho's but I just went through the drive thru and ordered a white moose with extra sauce (which I didn't get)and a sweet tea. This cost me $10. The whole way home, all I could think about was that I feel ripped off. I can get a gourmet sandwich at Ted's Butcher block for the same price.. with Mac & Cheese!
