Re: “Black Bean Co.

Amazing food and great outside seating area with a tranquil water fountain. It is tough finding a vegetarian restaurant in the Charleston area. Yet this one more than makes up for the lack of supply. Great tofu-stuffed wraps and delicious water infused with fruits or veggies (I have had strawberry and cucumber water there - it varies based on the chef's preference). Black Bean provides a much needed respite during my days downtown.

Re: “Black Bean Co.

Thought this place was really good when I first tried it, a little pricey but the portion was big. Tonight, I got a Black and Blue that was quite small and had only a couple of pieces of chicken. For $9?? My son had the Turkey Bacon which was bigger and not skimpy on the meat. I live in the neighborhood, but don't think I'll be back anytime soon. Dellz has way bigger portions for less $.

Re: “Marina Variety Store

Springs, you ever think that you have so many bad experiences because you're an evil wench? Being rude to your server is a great way to ensure your food takes forever. If you ever sat at my table, I'd make sure everyone else got their food before you. The tip from your one table doesn't affect my day much anyway.

Re: “Black Bean Co.

BB Co is too expensive and skimpy on ingredients.

I don't see any reason for James Islanders to go there instead of Barberito's - BB Co. doesn't even offer Avocado as an ingredient! They only have Guacamole, which Barberito's also offers.

Re: “Marina Variety Store

I stumbled upon these reviews while looking for a place to eat breakfast. I am AMAZED that someone (Springs) has the time, and clearly so few other interests, to write such a novel about ranch dressing. REALLY? You would be such an asset to our world if you could channel that passion for something that actual matters.
PS...regardless of your experience, how is the servers married life relevant in any way?

Re: “Café Kronic

This little cafe is about to be little no more. They are moving to where D&B's Cheeseburger's used to be behind Walgreens, a few doors down from Mondo's Delight and Terrie's Sports Bar. I love this place and excited for them to have a bigger place to serve more locals and tourist at. They have an amazing staff, who are all so nice and sweet. I hope this restaurant continues to do well and even better once in its new place. If you have not tried them out please go and do not waste anymore time. This cozy laid back atmosphere yet superb customer service along with amazing cuisine is what I think to be the best on James Island. Rooting for this Cafe all the way!! Love this place! Keep Going and make it happen!!

Re: “The Bagel Shop

Great food! But service is lacking in terms of wait time. If 4 or more people are in the restaurant at any given time, expect a 15-20 minute wait to get your food!

Re: “Hominy Grill

i disagree my food was really good and the portions were fine, the one thing i will say the host told us there were no seats available inside, only 3 tables were being used, and only had outdoor seating, it was pretty cold outside (getting caught up on my reviews), and when we left there were still tables that had not been touched, so that didnt sit well with me, but whatever still had a really good meal

Re: “Black Bean Co.

Great food, but definitely not for the cost conscious.

Re: “Black Bean Co.

Black Bean Co. disappoints with its rice-heavy + spring mix-heavy burritos that are skimpy on the main ingredients like Black Beans and Guacamole. Also: last week I ordered a burrito that didn't mention sprouts on the menu - but I got them. Yucky discovery to make when you get it back to the office.

Since I discovered Dellz Deli last night, I won't be going back to the Black Bean Co.
A previous reviewer hit the nail on the head - BB Co. costs more than Dellz, gives skimpier portions, and is simply not as good.

Re: “Black Bean Co.

Wow- Chef Ellis really serves great wonderful organic food- good for the soul! He cares totally about being LOCAL- using Thackery Farms- a local farm and goes out there daily and farms himself- he cares about his customers and that is his primary concern. If you are vegan or not- stop in for a treat for the best organic tasty food around and good for your wallet too! Can't wait for the James Island location- more yummy food for the area-

Re: “Hominy Grill

I love Hominy Grill. Yes, it does get packed so plan ahead or get there early. To me, it's always been well worth the food. I'm a breakfast person so this place is FANTASTIC for me.

Re: “Hominy Grill

The last time I took people here was the last time I visit.

The portions are really getting skimpy - I would have to order 2 entrees to avoid being hungry and I'm 5'11 160lbs.

And the food is not as good as it used to be - it's getting downright insipid.

Forget these guys - they are completely resting on their laurels.

Re: “Hominy Grill

I can't believe these reviews. The food here is incredible. I've been here for breakfast, which was good but probably a little too hyped up. Fine, let the tourist go here for breakfast...
I went here for dinner for the first time on Monday night and I actually woke up thinking about my food from the night before. It was incredibly delicious. There were four of us and all of our food was delicious, one had shrimp and grits, one had cajun meatloaf and one had trigger fish with cheesy deep fried grits. I had lima beans, mac and cheese, mashed sweet potatoes and corn bread. I could eat these for the rest of my life. Not to mention that we all drooled over the menu and all had a really hard time deciding what to order.
Our waitress was helpful with helping us choose, very friendly and attentive.
I can't wait to come back here for dinner.

Re: “Toast of Charleston

Delicious food, great quaint cafe atmosphere and personable service. I've lived here in Charleston for 3 years and I've never been to Toast but I'll definitely be back! Bottomless mimosas on Sundays for a delicious brunch ;)

Re: “Black Bean Co.

If you like Black Bean Co. (which is decently good) you will LOVE Dellz Deli, wayyyy more authentic, much much better, yummier food. The wraps are twice as big. The price is much less. The service is much friendlier and much better. I used to order from Black Bean Co. at least 3 times per week, although they are nice, I feel their efforts are for franchizes and expansion, not for serving their customers. Dellz is devoted to serving her hungry customers yummy food that is great for them, not expansion and $$$$. Black Bean is pretty great yes, but Dellz blows them out the water. True story.
