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.

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

It's in there (in a parenthetical). It moved to a nice, shiny spot in Mt. Pleasant in 2006 and closed pretty soon after. Just wasn't the same.

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

I can't tell you how many times a month I went to Your Place when I was at CofC. I love how they always had sweet tea in big colored tupperware pitchers. The bathroom doors had signs that said "inboards" and "outboards." I still miss it all the time. Simple, to-the-point, and perfect.

Loved the vibe, the rag tag building, burgers and gals behind the counter. A Charleston original. Great article Stephanie!
