Little Jack's Tavern
Where to Eat in Charleston Right Now
The gist: Little Jack’s is a delightful time machine back to the diners and steakhouses of the late ’50s, menu included. Since its Tavern Burger was recently named one of the best burgers in the U.S., people have been flocking to this quaint and cozy little shop for a burger that’s so good, you can order it from the appetizer, entree, and dessert menus.
The food: You’d be remiss to not order the burger with a smashed patty, gooey American cheese, and griddled onions. Other popular dishes include the warm garlic knots served with cheese fondue, chopped salad topped with avocado ranch dressing, and the crispy chicken cutlet. Pair your meal with an updated classic cocktail, like the Rum Old Fashioned.
The cost: Appetizers start at $9, the burger with fries is $15, entrees start at $21
