  1. I could be wrong, but I think the one in Charleston is closed. I'm not sure. I think their is one in Holly Hill. Might want to call ahead.

    1. Skins, inside meat and outside meat(personal favorite) are all excellent as is the hash. The ribs are not what most folks expect. Sweatman's cooks whole hogs only. The ribs come right off the split pig and are like the rest of the inside meat. No bark. Still pretty tasty stuff. Wish I was closer to Holly Hill...

        thanks sounds good
        Appreciate the heads up never had the hash stuff....

        1. re: orzobino

          Don't miss the hash. It's like a gravy/stew that is commonly served over rice. Sweatman's is quite good.

            Yes, you must try the hash. Some say it has every part of the pig except the squeal.

              I ate at 5 restaurants this weekend in Charleston...everything from a casual seafood to an upscale 175 dollars for two place and my favorite experience was Sweatmens......I think I prefer the mustard base to the vinegar.....thanks for all the recs

                  Oh yes..
                  Tasted a lot like Brunswick stew which is really weird...but very good....scooped it up with some crispy about Cardiac heaven!!!
