Welcome to Greasy Spoons Week 2013, Eater's tribute to all-day breakfast joints, classic diners, cheap eats, late-night haunts and, here in Charleston, the meat-and-three places that have been crushing hunger for ages. The week will be filled with guides, maps, interviews and much, much more, all celebrating the pancake stacks, slabs of pie, sides of bacon and bottomless cups of coffee around the Lowcountry.
To kick it off, a few non-greasy spoons around town are paying homage to the diner dishes they love by creating a special menu item for the week. These offerings should not be overlooked. They include, among many other delights, fried chicken and biscuits, poppers, meatloaf sandwiches and pimento cheese melts.
Finally, Eater readers, there is still time for your voice to be heard. We're on the search for best club sandwich in town. Got a three-slicer sandwich you love? Tell us here or in the comments. Eater Charleston is also getting nostalgic and collecting your memories from the well-loved diners of yore. The Holy City has witnessed the shuttering of a number of greasy spoons (The Goodie House, Your Place, etc.) and now is the time to pour one out for those late, great eateries. Send your tributes and pictures right to the tipline.
