Charleston Edition: Mario's Pizza

Mario’s Pizza

Mario's Pizza is one of many pizza shops in Charleston, but a friend recently told me this was his favorite.

Mario’s Pizza

Located on Bigley Avenue, this shop has just a few tables inside so most of the business is carry-out or delivery.

I ordered a 12" pizza with mushrooms and cheese breadsticks.

South Charleston Edition: Fat Bob's Roadhouse Diner

FatbobNothing makes me happier than being able to order food online & have it delivered to my door with minimal human interaction. So, Charleston 2 Go has answered many of my prayers. One restaurant I noticed on their website that I haven't tried before was Fat Bob's Roadhouse Diner.

FatbobAfter a little bit of searching, I learned Fat Bob's is located at the Harley-Davidson shop and has been named to the 101 Most Unique Places to Dine list. The menu features a few sandwiches, burgers and soups/salads. This is the Fatbob - 6 oz. specially blended 80/20 burger with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, housemade Thousand island dressing and choice of cheese. I went with American. Served with a side of chips.

Charleston Edition: Vino's Bar and Grill


One of my dear friends, Leah, was in town so I wanted to figure out a quick spot for happy hour, and Vino's came to mind.

VinosMostly because I had never been, and with its bright ed door facing Kanawha Boulevard and demanding a presence, I've always been curious.

VinosThe happy hour menu is super affordable, with house wine at $2.

VinosThere are a good bit of video games and TVs, so probably a good spot to watch any big game.

VinosThe happy hour menu had appetizers in addition to drinks - and Leah got some pork rinds, but I couldn't resist checking out the full thing.

VinosAnd wouldn't you know it - something called buffalo wontons were there.

VinosThats buffalo chicken dip all wrapped up in a wonton wrapper and side of bleu cheese dressing.

You're seated at a table, served all this incredible food and then the performers regale you with all kinds of acts. This evening's performance focused on musical legends over the years.
