Poe's Tavern, Tuesday Afternoon at 11:30 a.m.

Welcome to Eater Scenes, where Eater photographers visit some of the city's great restaurants to capture them at a certain, and very specific, point in the day. Today, a visit to Poe's Tavern at 11:30 a.m., on a Tuesday, for Burger Week.

Erin Perkins is the editor of Eater Carolinas.

Sullivans Island sweetheart Poe's Tavern is never without a crowd. No matter what time you come off the beach in search of burgers and a good time. The laid-back restaurant is named after writer Edgar Allan Poe, who was stationed at Fort Moultrie on Sullivans in 1827. With such a prodigious namesake, it's only natural most menu items take on titles from Poe's work, like the "Tell-Tale Heart" burger with fried egg, applewood bacon and cheddar cheese or the "Annabel Lee" version topped with a crab cake and remoulade sauce.

In honor of Burger Week, Eater photographers Katie Condon and Jessika Stocker took a trip to sunny Middle Street to capture the hustle and bustle of a busy lunch shift.

And if you ever needed an excuse to tuck into a plate at Poe's, the establishment is donating five percent of their daily sales to WINGS for Kids until April 20. WINGS is an after-school program aimed at promoting social and emotional development for children in the Lowcountry.
