Eating Out: Charlerston

Published Date Author: , February 11th, 2015

Bowen’s Island RestaurantCharleston, South Carolina, is known for its rich culinary history and dozens of award-winning restaurants. But if you don’t want to spend all of your time with other tourists and can’t score a reservation at Husk, there are plenty of under-the-radar and local restaurants to enjoy. You don’t need to call ahead to these casual spots or worry about breaking the bank for a good meal.

Bowen’s Island Restaurant

This beloved seafood joint has burned down twice but keeps on going, serving up oysters straight from below the dockside restaurant. Follow the gravel road from James Island and you’re met with a wooden structure on the water. Cash is the preferred method of payment and you can get your seafood of choice broiled, fried, or anything in-between. Scratch your name on the table and join the years of graffiti left behind.

The Taco Spot

With locations in West Ashley and downtown, The Taco Spot is the ideal place for a quick and cheap bite. Their tacos come with delicious sauces and everything is made fresh. Choose from chicken, fish, beef, or steak with soft or crunchy shells. In addition to tacos, you can chow down on quesadillas or a burrito. Slosh on some hot sauce from the hundreds of bottles lining the bar.
