    If you're in Charleston, you need to stop here for a meal. The 'Que doesn't disappoint and the sauce is one of the best around, mustard-based or not.

    Try Tuesday's Daily Special: Big Chick Combo with fries and a regular drink for only $7.99. Hand-breaded and deep fried in house!

    I am an eastern NC girl, and have been slow to take to this SC mustard sauce. Oh Lordy if I had only stopped here first! Nearly a year wasted with slop. Want to love SC sauce? Eat here. :)

    Get the bacon cheeseburger. Not as good as Melvin's (which is weird since it's the same family) but coming in 2nd ain't a bad thing.

    You can't go wrong with the pork sandwich. Fries are standard with the donut onion ring.

    If you don't like mustard based sauce, don't eat their BBQ pork.

    Do not go for the buffet unless you enjoy standing on long lines waiting for very old people to make it through the one buffet line.
