This Is The Best Diner Food In South Carolina
Charleston is home to the best diner in all of South Carolina. Sometimes you just want or need good old-fashioned diner food. There is nothing better for late nights or early mornings. Breakfast all day? Yes, please! Endless cups of decent but not necessarily good coffee? It just tastes better in a diner, usually with a nostalgic retro theme. Can something be nostalgic if you weren’t alive when it was trendy?
But regardless you can see those probably sliver and red striped booths in your mind. Vintage Coca-Cola signs and a jukebox. I can already taste the greasy burger and milkshake. Reader’s Digest compiled a list of the single best diner in every state. And it was a Charleston staple-Early Bird Diner, that took the title for South Carolina. Reader’s Digest says that they awarded the best of the best by ” thoroughly investigating customer ratings, TripAdvisor scores, and local gossip to find the absolute best diner in every state.”
You’ll find Early Bird Diner in the Charleston neighborhood of West Ashley. Think diner food but elevated diner food. You can try the chicken and waffles which are pecan fried chicken and cinnamon waffles. There is also the Lowcountry classic shrimp and grits, a country scramble, and biscuits as other breakfast options. For lunch and dinner food try the fried green tomatoes, the BBQ meatloaf sandwich, or the fried pork chop.
