Venue Info

Although the original depression-era diner closed years ago, the relatively new Earl Abel’s is still a retro-feeling diner for low country comfort foods even though it doesn’t reside in the same location. It’s the type of place where everyone falls under the category of “folks” and Chicken Fried Steak is king, but it has added a few things to its menu that might surprise the regulars that have known Earl Abel’s for its succulent, crispy fried chicken and heavenly homemade soups for decades. Not only does Earl's grind its own chuck in-house for the fat, juicy Angus burgers, but it also features specialty patties like Kobe beef and Texas bison. No matter what, they're served with homemade chips… but if you ask us, substitute those for the fried pickles.
