Do you know the Chat N' Chew in Turbeville? Chances are you've passed this South Carolina institution dozens of times, but I do hope you've stopped recently. The food is great, and it's one of the best deals around. The restaurant opened inand is known to many because its location on U. Before Interstate 95 was built, it was a main route between New York and Florida.

Outside, there are flowers growing, and on the afternoon I visited, a group of five to seven men sat at an outside table, drinking coffee and visiting.

If visiting this slice of Americana isn't enticing enough, how about this deal? I had chicken and dumplings, collard greens, field peas, corn bread and a slice of coconut pie. It was all delicious. My husband had pork and rice, field peas and cole slaw.
Great food at an amazing price. My husband remembers stops at the Chat N' Chew when he was a boy during the s, when his family drove from Columbia to North Myrtle Beach. I remember passing it once every few months when my family drove from Columbia to visit an older brother in Florence. That name just sticks with you.
It's also likely been the site of a lot of business deals over the years. Coastal Carolina University became an independent institution in You should plan a visit to Turbeville soon. Gwen Fowler. Discover writers share all of the places, activities and adventure that South Carolina has to offer.
