The minute you advertise a taco for $5.00, you have lost me. There is no way you can justify that price. Do they have fresh tuna, Kobe beef, and porterhouse steak in them? Don't be surprised if they go under real fast, like so many wanna be restaurants do in this town.
i would rather go to Zia Taqueria on james island... bacco in mtp is awesome, as is coleman pub house!! i
Surely you're aware that the strip clubs off Meeting reside in a block-sized area outside of both Charleston and North Charleston city limits, hence why they're going strong at 3 am. I haven't been there in years but I imagine they'll be hit quite hard by this as much of the business in such a shady area was from being the only place to drink after 2.
The stated problems seem to be a common failure of many newer establishments. The good typically survive and get better...the rest will go out of business. My question...How are $5 single tacos and $7 Margaritas considered 'inexpensive'?
Glad to read the fire was more of a minor setback than a catastrophe.
"I have found my devotion to Coleman Public House growing more and more as just about the only place I go to in Mt. Pleasant where I know I will get great food/service. Try them FairGayme if you have not been."
Yes! You are not alone in this opinion. I also find Bacco to always be pretty awesome.
Wow, I think this has to be the worst restaurant review I have read from CCP. They are usually able to come up with a couple of nice things to say about a place, especially one that had so much potential. I hope the owners are listening to the pretty consistently horrible reviews they are getting from Yelp, UrbanSpoon, etc. How could a place where they obviously spent a ton of money renovating and is in such a good location miss the mark on the food and service so much? Maybe they can get their shizz together before it is too late.

Agreed, went 3 times, trying to give em a shot. Each time progressively getting worse. Literally, the worst "taco" I have ever eaten. I will Scratch them off my ever shortening lists of places to dine in MP.
Great Job Chef Frank and the entire SNOB team. You all should be so proud, and places with such pride are why the Market district is such a fabulous place! From ken and the Burwell's Team... way to go!
Yes. Everything; everywhere; any time.
Accelerate through the speed-humps. Hit horse-drawn carriages and pedi-cabs.
Bring back Bull Street Gourmet, because the new place fucking sucks.
Put the F/A-18 back on the front of the Yorktown.
Please clean Colonial Lake now.
24. 7. 365. Everything. Everywhere.
And buy liquor at the grocery store.
And get rid of the damn "speed humps".
"Talk about government interference with free enterprise."
I don't understand the marketing push that "good" food is food that is locally grown. Fresh local broccoli still smells like farts and tastes like ass. Why do I want to eat trash fish and small, fragile strawberries? No, I think I'd rather have the choice chops that actually taste good from whatever geographic area has a comparative advantage in producing those products rather than the parts of locally raised animals that require lots of dressing up in the kitchen to make palatable. You can keep your tripe.
Ever notice that the food at Husk never quite tastes as good as you expected?
Talk about government interference with free enterprise.
The problem with scaling agricultural "sustainability", is that there are far more people who want to talk about it in broad, romantic terms (or use the concept to generate media attention and celebrity) than actually give it a go. Most Americans aren't willing to live the way smallholders often do - that's why our farmland now contains plastic houses in the suburbs - and the ones that do are often happy enough feeding their own.
The actual proprietors of the small farm community were probably out working too hard to be interviewed for this article. Almost all of the families truly producing locally farmed food work other jobs to pay for their passion. They aren't especially interested in lots of money or fame, and don't really care if the rest of the world buys their lettuce from the same country as they get their t-shirts these days.
If 10% of the population learned to cook, stopped buying industrially processed foods, and didn't source meats and produce from grocery chains, then you'd have an explosion in local farming (and much lower health costs). You'd also have a quick lobby by corporate/government officials to regulate all of that in the name of safety and shut it down.
Hopefully, he's parlayed some of all this national press into some $$. If not, shame on him.
BTW, I just came back from Town and Country in West Ashley, everyone I spoke to there was quite pleased to be working today.
They even get free dinner after their shift, not to mention tons of big tips with which to pay their bills.
Everything everywhere should be open 24/7/365 if that is what they choose to do.
Maybe you should go and protest at the paper mill. They are running all three shifts today, probably more people than all of the restaurants combined.
All of the gas stations are open too.
But hey, if you want to sit home all day help yourself, just stop trying to push your opinions on those who clearly are not interested
The best BBQ pig that one can purchase in the carolinas. Hate to hear of this fire but they will be back to full power shortly. It's worth the ride just to pull up and take in the aromas of pork cooking and wood burning.
