There are a ton of reasons why I like visiting South Carolina and the food is a big one. Being part of the Barbecue Belt, which stretches from the Carolinas in the East to Texas and Missouri in the West and from Kentucky in the North down through the deep South, it’s not surprising that a BBQ spot would develop a cult following. Meet Lewis Barbecue, located in Charleston, one of the best areas of the state to find delicious food and ranked in a list of America’s Ten Best Food Cities by The Washington Post. Despite Charleston not being historically known for barbecue, when Lewis Barbecue opened in 2015, it took off like wildfire. Some would argue it’s now the place to get the best barbecue in South Carolina.
