Visit Ruth’s Drive-In, The Small Town Burger Joint In South Carolina That’s Been Around Since 1945

Is there really anything better than a restaurant that feels like home? Ruth’s Drive-In has been open so long, it’s like a second home to generations of people who grew up in and around Hartsville in Darlington County, South Carolina. This small town burger joint opened the same year World War II came to a close. It’s not just that old, it’s that good.
