“Small nostalgic diner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

We saw this place online looking for somewhere to stop on our way to Columbia and decide to try it. Nostalgic atmosphere, friendly staff and good food. Will definitely stop again when we're back that way.

“Best Burger in America”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

One of my missions in life is to find the best burger I can find. This has led me through 21 states, 6 countries, and three continents so far. While the search is never ending, for now the best is in a small town in central South Carolina... Camden.
What makes the best burger??? Not the biggest, not the most exotic meat, not the fanciest, not even the freshest... Lets talk ratio's. The ratio of crispy edge to juicy meat. The ratio of meat to cheese. The ratio of veggies to beef. The ratio of toasted bread to soft bread... It all gets really technical after that... It's the best!
So, if you're in Japan or Australia and looking to burn some frequent flyer points Fly into Charlotte, NC (CLT) and drive an hour and a half south on HWY 521 to Camden, SC and ask someone for the "BSL." If you're in the US come into Columbia, SC (CAE) go east on I-20, 30 min. If you fly private, Camden has an airport.
It's worth whatever you have to do to get there!!!!!!

“Best Lunch Counter in Camden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

The BSL (Broad Street Lunch) isn't on Broad Street anymore. That's how long the BSL has been in business, since the 1930's. Small, friendly, hometown. Get the burgers, with chili and a side order of the sweet potato fries and a bottomless glass of sweet tea. You'll see why obesity is a national epidemic but it soooo good at the BSL. Inexpensive and simple. While the burger on white bread is a signature item, I still prefer the bun. It ain't fancy, but it's a great Camden tradition and one of my favorite places for a quick lunch that isn't fast food.
