Carb crusader Joe Pasta has sat on the corner of King and John Streets since 1999. The restaurant never found itself on any "top" Charleston eats lists, but it endured with deep discounts at happy hour and affordable menu items. Now that Upper King is a hotbed of multi-million dollar real estate transactions, Joe Pasta seems to be sitting a a rather valuable piece of property.

The restaurant is listed with The Commonwealth Company for $559,900 with a $11,227.39 rent per month. We always secretly wondered how long Joe Pasta would hold out on its prime location. Keep an eye out to see what happens at 428 King St.
