The 11 Restaurants You’ll Want To Eat At In South Carolina In 2020
Happy New Year, South Carolina! You can thank us later for loading up your dining bucket list with a whole slew of must-visit eateries in the Palmetto State this year. Don’t expect a lot of pomp and circumstance from these no-frills spots; but do expect to leave full and satisfied. Dig in!
1. Mayberry Diner - Greenwood
Dining here is like stepping into a rerun of the beloved Andy Griffith TV series. From the memorabilia decorating the place to the old-fashioned checkerboard floor and staff that treats everyone like family, Mayberry is aptly named. Enjoy hearty helpings of classic diner food like Thelma Lou's Country Breakfast and more.

Aunt Sue's is a roadside must for dining, shopping, and a fun time, in general. Open seasonally (check their

Address: 1427 Eutaw Rd., Holly Hill, SC 29059, USA
7. Mr. Bunky's - Eastover
Enormous cuts of prime rib aside, it's a rare occasion when you find a freshly cut and perfectly grilled sirloin weighing in at 32 ounces. Even more rare is that, at Mr. Bunky's (a meat market, market,
), the meat is from their own counter!

8. Bleu VooDoo Grill - Easley
We haven't found another eatery in the Palmetto State as delightfully macabre as Bleu VooDoo. If the decor and lighting in this fun restaurant and bar don't make you grin from ear-to-ear, then the food and drinks will. (Don't be surprised if you order a burger and it comes with a funny surprise... )

Hop on the Daufuskie Island Ferry and begin a day trip adventure that both your spirit and your palate will love.
