I have read a number of reviews on the Charleston eating scene and it sounds like I will not be hurting for options during a 4 day visit. My question is..where do the locals eat for the best food, for the best price in a casual atmosphere. I live in NY, so while in town, I want to favor restaurantes that offer more of a local flavor in their recipes, decor and service. Leaning towards High Cotton and Queen 82, but I would like a couple of less pricey options for lunch and dinner. Where do you guys eat? As a New Yorker, I know that the best places have more locals than tourists...the same has to be true in the South.
Thanks in advance for your help.
