Will be driving from Charleston to Savannah in early April. Any good local places for the famous,local shrimp burgers?

  1. Try Buddyroe's on Coleman in Mt Pleasant. Fun.

        1. re: redstickboy

          I just got a coupon offer on Groupon for Buddy Roe's. You may want to check the Charleston groupon for today. $10 for $20 worth. (Might be more attractive if you live here and go anyway rather than getting one and not being able to use it).

      1. This will require a detour (but you are still heading the right way, and Beaufort is really nice) but take it, after all, you ARE a chowhound!

          I strongly dislike the shrimp burgers at Shrimp Shack. It's a LONG drive, and it's overrated.

          1. re: UrDaddy

            if you are the same urdaddy that likes Jim and Nicks's as an example of charlotte bbq, we are polar opposites food wise!
            but if we all agreed this would be a boring place, and ch is never boring.
            btw, where do you suggest redstickboy go for shrimp burgers?

            1. re: Tee

              Now, now. Let's remain calm and keep our composure. After all, we're talking about shrimp burgers here.

              Shrimp Shack is terrible, awful, horrendous, and terribly overrated. I am hardly alone in that assessment. Just do a quick Google search, and you will see dozens of negative reviews.

              Without a doubt, redstickboy should go to the Foolish Frog for shrimp burgers. They are excellent !!

              Now, as to your silly little red herring, I will say this: Charlotte is to bbq, as Sweden is to tequila. Sometimes a chain is all you've got, hence my suggestion of Jim n Nick's. There are world-class bbq "joints" in North Carolina, but not one of them is in, or near, Charlotte.

                All calm and composed here, and no red herring intended. There is nothing wrong with us having different opinions. Please keep in mind that we are not snarky on this board, which is a refreshing change from most forums. I really like the civility of the southeast board. I am glad you are here, keep posting but dont be so touchy!
                I will try your suggestion of the Foolish Frog the next time I am in the area and will happily post. Thanks for the suggestion!

        2. OOO I concur. I love the Shrimp Shack.

            I've heard of the Shrimp Shack. Pat Conroy's favorite olace for shrimp burgers. We'll see if we can work it into the trip. We'll have two chances,going and returning to Charleston.

              FYI
              that is a large shrimp burger in the photo, i believe they do have a smaller version.

          2. I too will direct you to St. Helena Island but the Foolish Frog. I was about to recommend their shrimp burger until I checked their menu and realized that it was a crabcake sandwich that I had instead. It was fantastic though. Still worth a plug on here even if they don't have a shrimp burger.

              Agreed!!
              Foolish Frog is the place to go. Their service is pretty awful, but their food is excellent.

                It was on the lunch menu when I was there last week.
