Pawley's Front Porch

Describing my experience at my first checkoff from Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives

Pawley's Front Porch

Pawley's Front Porch also known as Pawley's by the locals is located downtown in the heart of Columbia, SC. It is listed as one of the most, if not the most popular restaurant in Columbia, SC. I first heard of Pawley's by seeing the episode it was featured in on Diner's Drive-Ins, and Dives...which led me to their menu Looking at their menu, you can see that they offer a half off menu on Tuesdays which is absolutely insane! On half-off Tuesdays, you can try any of their burgers which are normally $10 for only $5!

Atmosphere and Taste

Upon arriving at Pawley's, there was a wait...which you'd kind of expect being that THE ENTIRE MENU IS HALF OFF. Mostly waiting around me were teenagers, probably college students looking to save a few dollars like me. In the corner of the waiting area, they hang their poster of "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives", proudly showing their success of making it on the show. When you look at the menu(, there are many choices other than the burgers they are known for (which are named after places in South Carolina) such as wraps and salads. The burger I chose to go with is called Sullivan's. What drew me into this burger was the thought of a sweet pineapple mixing with the flavor of a savory burger. Overall, I would rate the burger an eight. The flavor of the pineapple and the jalapeno mayonnaise was great. And I loved that I could choose a pretzel bun as a topper. But the beef patty is where the burger lost points for me, for my preference I would have preferred it to be less thick.

Footage of the show

Unfortunately, the clip of the show from Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives is no longer on YouTube. However, you can still see the restaurant featured in other clips such as this X
