The May Hit List: Lenoir, Hall’s Chophouse, Taco Boy, Madra Rua, and More


Charleston dwellers are used to being stopped on the street, queried while waiting in line, and emailed for recommendations constantly by visitors who want to know “Where do locals love to eat?” Lucky for them, eating out is entertainment here, so there are plenty of restaurants that locals won’t mind sharing.

What we’re in the mood depends for on the neighborhood, or the night, and of course your taste and your  pocketbook. So here are a few answers to have on hand for your next query as everyone comes to town this season, from the perfect summer snack at Taco Boy and a gigantic reuben sandwich at Madra Rua, to the hottest tables in town at Lenoir and Hall’s Chophouse. It’s all here in the May Hit List.
