Yes, do beware of the oil change special. Additional fees are added. The place seems sorta like a used car lot with the only thing missing is the polyester suit. You can get the same service for less up the street at Precision, or Firestone, or HIlls.

I will be interested to see what the comments are in a few months. But when folks take the time to write reviews, and they are not so good, maybe the owners will take note and make some immediate changes. That place has been a number of restaurants in the past, and all have failed. Unless you have something that is unique and affordable, folks will go once, and then return to their original haunts. The parking has always been a problem down there, and won't improve....ever. Where does the staff park? And if you get a reputation of being overpriced, that is an immediate stab in the heart. I'm going to try it out this weekend, and will write a review of the experience. I am looking forward to seeing how these guys have tried to be different.
How about taking some of that fine money and making some signs that say "No parking of bicycles except in bike corrals"? How about tourists, who fund this city? This is another way the stupid police dept. and the city have found to make lots of money on fines. How about if I just moved to Charleston? I agree with the law, but you have to let folks know about it every day, not just on the TV or social media. Old folks don't use the social media like the kids do.
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.
Why the bitching over the cruise ships as "ugly, polluting, bringing foreigners in to the city". Well, we have had huge cargo ships for decades. And the folks they bring ashore are only a handful of crew. They spew pollution, "uglify" the waterfront, yet they contribute greatly to the tax base. So do the tourists we have by the millions each year. IF the SPA will agree to the already limit of 2-3 per week, for only a short amount of weeks each year, I don't see the fuss being worth it all. The SPA will get what they want, as they always do. Enjoy the tourists paying for a lot of the things we would otherwise have to pay out of our taxes.
Chris: To begin with, Head Start is a complete waste of money. Statistics show that after all the money is spent on these kids from 3-6 years old, they don't end up being any more "educated" or "aware" than they would had they stayed at home. Now, about the area: Only when the residents will call the police and start reporting crimes, and being witnesses to those crimes in court, will the story change. Many a time there has been a murder, or a shooting, when there were others around, and "no one" saw anything. This is not restricted to just the MLK pool area. I don't think those folks don't care about the children of the area. They are concerned about their children. I don't blame them. Drug dealers hang around because no one reports them. Just that simple. So go out, with a crowd, start taking photos of drug dealers doing their thing, and I bet they disappear like roaches when the lights are turned on in your kitchen.
