Re: “The bulgogi and banchan are worth the trip to 843 Korean BBQ & Sushi House

This place is capital L Legit. If you like actual Korean food (as in, what you are served in Korea) then go here. I am happy we have such a restaurant in CHS and I've been twice in the past ten days since first trying it.

Re: “The Charleston restaurant staffing crisis has reached DEFCON 1

That's is truth and for a lot of other professions as well. I am from he same time period late 90s- 2002. Moves back last year and BAM. Shocking the prices for housing and food ETC. Jobs I used to work for still paying the same. How do people do it! We do well but still struggle to pay for evenrything. Like NYC PRICES. Crazy

Re: “DeSano Pizza Bakery shutters Stuart Street location indefinitely

Well dang! We recently went there after having it at the airport. I thought it was the best pizza in Charleston! They do need a better location, though.

Re: “The Charleston restaurant staffing crisis has reached DEFCON 1

I moved to the west coast where servers are paid as much as 12.50 an hour plus tips (most places here 100% tip share) There are just as many worthy restaurants here, they balance with the food trucks and the pop ups, but you know why? Because servers and other F&B workers make livable wages. They stay put in the restaurant that fits them. It really is a pretty great set-up. I wish Charleston would understand the value of that.

Re: “The Charleston restaurant staffing crisis has reached DEFCON 1

I have always felt servers should at least be paid minimum wage. TIPS should never have become 'mandatory' for a server to make enough to survive on. Charge me for the food, and if the service warrants it, I will tip.

Re: “The Charleston restaurant staffing crisis has reached DEFCON 1

Is this more in the city or rural/outlying areas of charleston? How would you get good "city servers" out there?

Re: “The Charleston restaurant staffing crisis has reached DEFCON 1

But restaurant owners are not paying the correct amount with these skeleton crews. Law states that servers to be paid 2.13 hour while serving. If doing other duties they must pay true minimum wage of 7.50 I believe. But owners are saying this is fill work. It is not and still many employees are doing it because employers say so. There really is no resason not to pay an actual fair wage. I know friends of mine who own restaurants in other parts of the country pay 15 or more per hour, they have removed the tips from being accepted at their restaurants. Or some still use tips and pay a 10 or 12 dollar wage plus tips. They are making money and have less food waste, theft, and happy employees

Re: “Blues Burger Joint knows what's up with a steak sandwich

Surprised to hear such poor thoughts on the fries, granted we all know sometimes the fries don't always come out the way we like them, but I love their fries, especially when you opt to add some pimento cheese on top! Those things are delicious. They've also added a salad and are in the process of expanding the menu I hear, so I'm sure there are soon to be more veggie friendly options. Gotta try the Fowl Play chicken sandwich (my fave) and the Cuban as well!

Re: “Blues Burger Joint knows what's up with a steak sandwich

Sounds to me like you go the Bam sauce, not the ranch. The ranch is actually pretty great, as is the Bam sauce (which many people choose to use instead of ranch). Would think a food reviewer would notice the mix up and not think they were trying to pass that Bam sauce as Ranch.

Re: “DeSano Pizza Bakery shutters Stuart Street location indefinitely

I did enjoy their pizza, it was wonderful. I think that the location was a detriment to their business......please re-open in a more active and compliant neighborhood!! "Build it, and they will come." Best of luck.

Re: “DeSano Pizza Bakery shutters Stuart Street location indefinitely

This was GREAT pizza and I was a regular customer. I am VERY sorry to see them go. The food was terrific but limited to pizza which was probably a problem. They had a salad (which was not memorable) but nothing for the non pizza lover: (short sighted and limiting). Sloppy counter service instead of servers probably turned people off. The huge noisy warehouse concept with picnic table seating didn't work well and the fact that they did not have a bar and sold only splits of wine was not wise either. This place didn't close because of the food but because of the overall concept and location which was not great. A better location, wider menu and a bar could have been a great help. I will miss their friendliness and their wonderful pizza. Ciao DeSano!

Re: “Your Place was the best — that's all there is to it

Michelle was the bartender's name. This was NOT like Dick's Last Resort. At Dick's, they attacked you on the way in. At Your Place, it went like this;
Walking in the screen door, "Hey Michelle! Are you still poisoning people with that burger?"
Michelle, "Only if they're paid up."
Me, "OK. What's on special?"
Michelle, "Penicillin. All these fuckers in here got herpes. Want a beer?"
It was flirting--Your Place style!
And if you look at the movie "Paradise" starring Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, there's a bar scene with Don that took place in Your Place. I know because they borrowed the glassware from where I worked. Your Place used plastic cups. (As Michelle said, "You ain't gonna cut nobody with plastic."

Re: “Halls Chophouse now selling its signature steak sauce

Hahahaha Muskie and Sterling are from my team. Muskie, we can probably use the Harris Teeter store brand and get 4 bottles. Not a fan of Hall's at all. They have mail order meat from Allen Brothers so why not completely smother it with a sauce.
