Poe’s Tavern’s Tell-Tale Heart has been featured by ZAGAT staff as one of the best burgers in South Carolina. In honor of Zagat’s Burger Week, the famous restaurant guide published “50 States, 50 Burgers” on its Buzz blog, and had this to say about it’s South Carolina choice:
“Poe’s, a serious burger spot with local clout, is named after Edgar Allen Poe, who was stationed in Charleston during a stint in the army. Naturally, the go-to menu item is the Tell-Tale Heart burger – juicy, ground-in-house Angus chuck beef, layered with a fried egg, Applewood bacon and cheese.”
“Wow! We are thrilled to be chosen as South Carolina’s best burger by Zagat’s,” Rusty Bennett, owner of Poe’s, said. “We have won numerous citywide Best Burger awards but this is a first. We are very pleased but also humbled as we continue to strive to meet the high expectations our customers have placed on us. The best burger is always the next one we serve – we never lose sight of that goal. “
Poe’s is located at 2210 Middle, Street on Sullivan’s Island. Read the full ZAGAT article here http://www.zagat.com/b/50-states-50-burgers?zagatbuzzid.
