7 Best Places for BIG Food in South Carolina!

Size matters in the food world, especially if you have an appetite to match. South Carolina is home to some of the biggest bites you can imagine, guaranteed to fill your stomach and still have plenty of leftovers to take home with you (maybe). Challenge your appetite at one of these 7 best places for big food in South Carolina! 

Grill Marks, Columbia and Greenville, SC

This burger chain is serving up what is aptly named the Hot Mess. Imagine a grilled cheese sandwiched between two succulent beef patties, then topped with a grilled hot dog, chili, three types of cheeses, bacon, onion straws, lettuce, tomato, and a fried pickle. Good luck getting all of these things in a single bite—make sure you ask for extra napkins.

1720 Burger Bar, Florence, SC

They call it the Cobra Commander: four seven-ounce patties, four slices of cheese, six thick-cut strips of bacon, a half-pound of chili, and onion straws, all held together by two ham and cheese sandwiches. If you can eat it and the six tater bombs that come with it in under 45 minutes, you don’t pay for it.

Philly Cheese Steak, Goose Creek, SC

If you’re in need of a Philly fix, you might get more than you bargained for here. They’re serving up a whopping five pounds of Philly cheesesteak and fries using ingredients that come straight from Philly itself. You won’t want to stop until the last bite disappears.

Thorny’s, Myrtle Beach, SC

How hungry would you have to be to polish off an 80-ounce steak? This colossal cut of beef is loaded with flavor (and calories), but if you can finish it you’ll be a hometown hero.

Breck’s Steakhouse, Charleston, SC

It’s not quite as daunting as the 80-ouncer at Thorny’s, but Breck’s Steakhouse’s 30-ounce sirloin isn’t for the weak eater. If you’re with a friend, they also offer the Sirloin for 2, which is a combined 60 ounces of beef, plus all the fixings.

Fire Ant Cafe, Sumter, SC

Located on the USC-Sumter campus, the Fire Ant Cafe knows that no one knows food like a college student. Their Ant Attack burger brings you five juicy beef patties, three slices of American cheese, and two slices of spicy ghost pepper cheese, all tucked between three buns.

Henry’s Restaurant and Bar, Columbia, SC

Breakfast food is so good, it’s hard to choose a select few. That’s why Henry’s created the Hungry Bennett. This massive hash brown casserole has a little bit of everything in it, so you never have to pick sides again. Chicken fried steak, bacon, sausage, eggs, cheese, and homemade sausage gravy complete the experience.
