The appeal? Because not every interstate exit in America has something like a Dukes Barbecue in Walterboro or a McCabe's in Manning.
Re: The Wreck, find me another place in town that does casual seafood that is actually locally sourced (in The Wreck's case, shrimp from Wando Seafood next door) and is paired with sides that speak to the Lowcountry's culinary traditions (hominy square, red rice, etc.), and where the owner still goes out of his way to thank you for your patronage. Unassuming, warm, and unapologetically even when they could go the "imported" route like most other coastal fish shacks. That's why it's a gem.
