If you like to try the places you see on TV for a bite to eat, here is one for you...Pawleys Front Porch in Columbia, South Carolina. It offers hungry travelers a taste of good cookin'.
It is one of Guy Fieri's visits on Diners, Drive In's and Dives. The burgers, fries and onion rings seem to be a hit and a delight for any one's pallet, but make sure that you check the chalk board for specials. There are great options.
Pawley's is best known for its burgers. However, don't get picky because they will only fix them the way you read them on the menu. But...you have choices for your half pound burger. You choose from four different types of buns.
The famous burgers are named after different parts of the state including CawCaw Creek, which is the chef's favorite, jalapeno pimento cheese, bread and butter pickle pickled green tomato, apple wood smoked bacon and grilled onions.
But the cities and the speciality burgers do not stop there. Fripp Island is southern salsa, boursin cheese and fried green tomato and the chef recommends either pretzel or ciabatta bun. The Rockville is sauteed Vidalia onions and wild mushrooms and gruyere cheese and the list goes on.
The signature Front Porch burger is just a burger, BUT then you have the options of several kinds of cheeses, bacon, chili or Frank's Red Hot bleu cheese to top it off.
All burgers are freshly ground daily from Angus chuck roast. They are seasoned with a blend of secret spices and portions are measured by hand at 8 oz.
AND...if burgers are not on your list of preferred foods you will find chicken, salads, fish tacos,shrimp, fried crawfish tails and so much more.
AND...don't forget your side dishes. Hand cut fries, Frank's red hot onion rings, sweet potato fries or pasta salad.
The fried green tomatoes make for a fantastic appetizer.
Although the restaurant appears to be a bar...it is so much more. The food is great and there is not only seating inside, but also a covered area for outdoor dinning. So don't be fooled.
However, there is a bar and if you are one that dabbles in different beers there are plenty of slections about 8 on tap, 14 domestic bottles and 22 imported micro-brews. You will also find plenty of alcohol selections.
Pawleys has two locations:
In the heart of Columbia
827 Harden Street
Mt. Pleasant
608 Long Point Road, Unit A
Mt. Pleasant, SC 29464
