As we approach a full month since our favorite local restaurants were fully open for dine-in services, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to come up with new crowd-pleasing recipes to satisfy the family.
You know from our list of 200+ Charleston establishments that have converted to take out and delivery that there are plenty of options as you start to lose momentum in the kitchen. In addition, we’ve found the restaurants that are taking it a step further by offering convenient and affordable family meal deals to get you and yours excited about dinner.
Oh, and we bet there will be some leftovers for lunch the next day.
