Charleston is definitely in my top 5 favorite food cities and the relatively close proximity to Orlando (5hr Drive) makes it without a doubt one the best gastronomic destination for serious foodies. The Culinary scene in Charleston is vast, and 3 days is nowhere remotely close to scratch the surface of all the gems that can be found in the Charming town, however, we did our best to take advantage of our 3 days to the fullest.
Here are the places we visited during our stay and recommend checking out if you decide to venture out to the beautiful town of Charleston, SC. Some of them are favorites that we have been to before and some were our first time there. We know that we eat with our eyes first so we took the liberty of taking as many pictures as we could for your own eye-feasting.

All hail the giant gold burrito! Marked with the words “wrapped for your protection” this monster of a meal along with family style tacos is what makes this menu a favorite. That beautiful crunchy layer in display it’s not the tortilla, it is actually a layer of crispy Oaxacan cheese! While the eatin’ is good, don’t forget to explore the drink menu. The Mezcal selection is great along with excellent cocktails.
Must have wings! Grilled over charcoal then shook in a bag with Valentina Sauce, DO NOT MISS THIS.
