The Oldest Deli In South Carolina Will Take You Straight To Sandwich Heaven

The Palmetto State is home to a variety of nostalgic restaurants that offer a window into the past and many generations worth of delicious meals that have been devoured within their walls. (See 13 of the oldest restaurants in the state here.) When it comes to unforgettable delicatessens, there is no match for the Columbia icon known as Groucho’s. Now franchised throughout the Carolinas, Groucho’s was born in Soda City in the early 1940s – and the Original location is still open.
