I became a fan of HMNIBBQ from their truck. Now that they have a brick and mortar location, I eat at HMNIBBQWHQ at least once a week. I really enjoy the quirky combinations of toppings and sauces. Grilled pineapple, pimento cheese, bbq bacon, and sriracha mayo is one of my favorites. For sauces they always have sweet red, vinegar, and mustard. Specialty sauces rotate regularly and include Green And Bold, which is made from green pepper jelly; Pineapple Habanero; Pear Bubbly; and Cherry Cola, just to name a few. Recently they have been making ghost pepper sauces. If you like your food to bite back, here's one place where you can match the spice to your tolerance.
The food is good, the service quick and friendly, and the prices fair.

No, Chris, clearly you're being pedantic and find great joy in misrepresenting what people say. Continue on with your uncouth ways, I'm done trying to combat your trolling.
Chris Haire - The fact you can't even comprehend the myriad ways you expressed bigotry leaves me wondering who thought it was a good idea to hire you to express your opinions.
The change you made does not make it any better, either. Since you seem incapable of empathy, let me break it down for you. First, as others have already mentioned, "tranny" is a derogatory word. I don't care where else you have seen it. It is wrong. The only proper place to use that term is when referring to car parts.
Second, by correlating gay sex to HIV transmission you further the stereotype that it is a gay disease. You correlate the two in an unnecessary and inaccurate way made all the more hurtful because you think it is funny.
And finally, by making light of an incurable life-threatening illness you pay massive disrespect to the more than 25 million people who have died from it.
Perhaps instead of denigrating a group of people and pretending it's humor you could, you know, say something meaningful.
"And they pay back-page trannies to drop a load of HIV in their backsides just so they can get a subscription for medical marijuana and lose a few pounds here and there."
That is extremely callous, uncouth, and contemptible. This piece should be retracted, an apology issued, and the moron who wrote it fired.
I think most of these places get over-hyped early on by a really good PR team. Case in point: The Ordinary was announced as a contender for this list before it even opened. By the time the food hits tables the media are so far in that no one has the courage to stand up and say that the emperor has no clothes.
I truly believe that Chef Lata is talented. I also think that when people like John Mariani, Alan Richman, or Andrew Knowlton show up, Chef Lata personally prepares the plates to ensure perfection. That gives them a very stilted view considering that is not what happens on the average night. When I went Chef Lata spent the entire night standing and talking to someone at a booth while people came by for photo ops. He didn't circulate through the restaurant, he was fixed to that one booth. Meanwhile my dishes showed a severe inattention to detail and had flaws that would have caused me to fail my first semester of culinary school.
If I had experienced Chef Lata at his best -- which I have yet to do at FIG or The Ordinary -- I might have a different opinion. Based on what I have experienced, though, The Ordinary is yet another over-hyped, overpriced, mediocre place that will keep drawing in people who are in search of a scene.
It is a bit disingenuous to claim SCE&G fully supports consumer-generated power without understanding what they're not telling you. Here is an article from The State newspaper that discusses the issue in more depth. http://www.thestate.com/2012/10/14/2480345…
