Re: “How a FIG server survives on 2 a.m. sandwiches

For the granmommy who has spent many a night sleeping on your couch watching the silent sandwich caper unfold, this was especially poignant.

Re: “How to make Leon's fried chicken sammie at home

Let's see...... Leon's: attitude, poor service, $12....
Betty's: super friendly, lightening service, $7 for a damn good sandwich, gee, which do I choose?

Re: “60 Bull Cafe's large sandwich menu is a welcome addition to Harleston Village

I ate here 2 months ago. The saltiest salad I've ever had (didn't know salads could be salty), and the fries were limp, greasy and inedible.

The prices seemed high, especially when the city has a dearth of similar restaurants of the same - if not better - quality (I'm looking at you, Ted's)

Bizarrely passionate negative reactions to an article describing how to fry chicken.

Re: “A quick and easy guide to Uber in Charleston

I must say that the negativity on this thread is disturbing. Lets get classy Charleston

Voted number 1 place to visit again this year, Charleston should welcome clean nice, above average-luxury vehicles transporting tourists spending good money to patron downtown as well as a multitude of other places.

While saving lives..... It is called a drunk driver and because of Uber, thousands of lives will be saved because it is a fairly inexpensive way to surely, safely, and decently way not to die. or to save a friend from driving.

Good call...Whoever tried to call that one is needing to breathe...and remember that we are all in this together and that's what it is all about...

Be free. Use Uber Charleston!

Re: “How a FIG server survives on 2 a.m. sandwiches

Thank you for making me reflect on how nice it is having three heavy-sleeping kids.

Curse you for the hunger pangs now radiating from my middle.

Re: “How a FIG server survives on 2 a.m. sandwiches

This habit will stay with you forever! I still sneak quietly down and assemble a sandwich made from whatever I can find in the refrigerator or whatever leftovers will not be missed. Its like being the special ops of the kitchen world with only the light from the refrigerator to guide us. I have even perfected what stairs to step over to prevent creaking. Dukes Mayo and hot sauce for the win!

Re: “How a FIG server survives on 2 a.m. sandwiches

Most sound fucking delicious, and what an insight.....thank you. We often discuss how "poor" we are as farmers and gardeners, but how well we eat.....

Btw, you had me at "two foot tall cherub...."

Re: “Short Grain makes Bon Appétit's America's 50 Best New Restaurants 2016 list

Good write up Kinsey and you are learning. Its not how good you are its how long you can be good. These guys are consistent and I drive to get their bowls because I always get the same quality as the last time. Beyond important! Nothing pisses me off more than the downhill slide of many places here. Good food every time deserves great reviews and loyalty.

Re: “What is Charleston's signature sandwich?

Fried Whiting every frigging Friday all year round here in the Chuck growing up, like it or not. Every single luncheonette and restaurant counter served that.

Re: “How to make Leon's fried chicken sammie at home

^^ I guess if you MUST eat the sandwich, takeout is the way to go, unless you enjoy over paying for 12oz beers.... However, $12 for just a mediocre sandwich is not worth it either way.

Re: “How to make Leon's fried chicken sammie at home

Lesson for today - do not use the word sammie, this is ok with the toddler crowd you hang with at home but adults get bothered by it. Even when used by the restaurant in question. Also 7541 is right, dreadful service at Leon's lately. Here is the best way to do the chicken "Sammie" - 1. Pick up phone. 2 Dial Leon's. 3- Place Order 4- Pick up 5- eat. Prob way easier.

Re: “What is Charleston's signature sandwich?

I second the point made that Jim's on South Street in Philly has the best cheesesteaks.
