Signs of Life at Upcoming Taco Spot Pancito & Lefty

Progress towards more Mexican food

Pancito & Lefty’s future home
Erin Perkins is the editor of Eater Carolinas.

It’s been more than a year since restaurateur Jimmy Poole (The Alley) and chef Robert Berry (formerly of Indaco) announced they were partnering to renovate the old Zappo's Pizza space into hip Mexican-influenced eatery Pancito & Lefty.

The plan was to serve mezcal cocktails by last summer, but after gutting the interiors of 708 King St., construction stopped. Passes by the building showed a few walls studs were in place, but not much else. Recently however, the Pancito & Lefty Facebook page revealed that construction is back on and the restaurant now has a hood and an HVAC system.

With this progress, perhaps Charleston will be dining on non-”kitschy” Mexican fare from Berry this fall. Look for more signs of movement in North Central here.
