Melvin's Legendary Bar-B-Que Restaurant Review

: Melvin's is known as the "kinder, gentler" cousin of Maurice's hard-core mustard style that is identified with the South Carolina Lowcountry barbecue. Both locations, one in Mount Pleasant and one on James Island, offer topnotch service, both for take-out and for dining in. The side dishes include all the classics, from baked beans to fried okra to hash and rice---and every plate comes with an enormous, crispy onion ring. The pork, chicken and hamburger combinations are endless, so allow time to peruse Melvin's extensive menu to find the barbecue plate, sandwich and trimmings that suit you best.
