When I think of Southern food, I obviously first think of shrimp and grits biscuits and gravy and Waffle House, but the most quintessential Southern food I was most looking forward to moving down here was the barbecue! I found Melvin's when I was living in Mount Pleasant for a few weeks, and it is absolutely amazing.
It's a mustard-based barbecue and I haven't found something I don't like. The pulled pork, barbecue chicken, burgers [Emeril called it the best ever!!] - all of the best, and just like it should be at any Southern barbecue joint, the cornbread rocks your socks off. Their sweet tea is delicious, too! Last but not least, they have four different sauces on each table that are sure to make any barbecue fan happy!
