One of the first food trucks in a now bustling scene, Hello My Name is … BBQ has made the move from nomad to permanent resident. While you’ll still see their name-tagged truck out on the road and at events around town, that familiar blue-and-white logo is now also painted on the side of a small strip mall on Meeting Street by the I-26 overpass. The physical location has the same great, simple barbecue with a slightly expanded menu and a good selection of beer and glass bottle sodas. The taco, mac and cheese, and sandwich specials change daily, or you can just build your own ’wich of beer-braised pork with toppings like pickled onions, pimento cheese, and a fried egg. Keep an eye out for meatloaf and the black bean burger too. And don’t forget the barbecued bacon. Because the best topping for pork is pork. —Susan Cohen
