I was visiting Charleston from NYC and was lucky to have a close friend who lives in town. During our round of golf, my friend told me about a sandwich that I absolutely had to have. I was not to even look at the menu, he would order for me. He also had to get extras for his family cause "if he went to Melvin's and did not come home with sandwiches for everyone there would be a fight". While waiting for our food we filled our plates with some free side items such as pickles, cauliflower and an assortment of peppers. It was a serve yourself small food bar that was free, fresh and pretty awesome. Then the sandwiches arrived. My friend ordered me the pulled pork sandwich with slaw, mustard sauce and pickles. The sandwich was awesome. I inhaled it. Good quality meat and fresh ingredients. My side of onion rings was also very good, but consisted of only 2, yes 2, onion rings. They were big and battery and excellent... but just 2. This lunch was absolutely perfect, well maybe one more onion ring, but man, the best lunch I have had in a while. On top of the great food, you get free refills on your sweet tea and I am assuming sodas as well. Keep in mind that this is fast food, but it is as good a fast food as you can get. Excellent experience. I was only sad that I was not able to eat there again as I was leaving the next day. Almost went out of my way to get lunch on the way to the airport but chose to not cut it close on my flight. I can't stop thinking about how well this place would do in NYC.
