Category: Restaurants in Charleston SC
Having lived in the New York area for an extensive part of my life, I know a thing or two about pizza. It can either be fantastic, or it can be something more akin to the mass-produced junk you see on TV. Or it can be served $1 per slice in New York City. But as far as finding the best pizza in Charleston, SC, the list is actually fairly short.
There are few things Charleston, South Carolina, loves more than its bake shops.
The short list would likely include beer, food in general, and paddle boarding.

An old quote associated with Charleston, SC explains that there are two South Carolinas: one south of Broad Street, and then the rest of the state. But with the new renaissance taking-over Charleston, the lively pulse of the city has spread north in historic downtown Charleston away from its old centers around Broad Street, lower East Bay, lower King Street, and Market Street. And that movement continues, with restaurants and shops popping-up in former residential neighborhoods, or in old corner convenience stores. And Xiao Bao Biscuit is at the forefront of Spring Street restaurants in uptown Charleston, SC.
Many people don’t realize that much of the South Carolina Lowcountry is Yankees territory. This seems odd to outsiders for such a large swath of Dixie to root for a solidly Northern team, but is at least partly due to the fact the local minor league baseball team is a Class A affiliate team of the New York Yankees. And the Charleston Riverdogs’ local home turf is the spectacular Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park.
