The buzzy lifestyle site Thrillist just came out with a new list of the 31 Best Sandwich Shops in America and one restaurant in South Carolina made the cut.
This new list retires older national legends such as Katz’s Deli in New York City and Slyman’s in Cleveland “in favor of a collection of new-wave innovators, overlooked old-schoolers, and more than a few oddities.”
The Southern General, on Johns Island, represents South Carolina. According to the Thrillist’s write up, “The Southern General is like a meat-induced fever dream of a southern comfort restaurant where everything’s made in-house and nothing is simple. Each offering is the product of fine-tuning and inspired innovation, from the sweet tea-infused BBQ sauce that covers the pulled pork to a Cuban-inspired bánh mì with candied pork belly and sweet potato-garlic kimchi. The coup de grâce, though, might be the Southern Pot Roast, which packs an entire slow cooker’s worth of sirloin, veggies, and gravy into a hoagie roll smacked with local honey.”
Sounds road trip worthy to us! The Southern General is located at 3157 Maybank Hwy, Unit E, Johns Island. Check out the menu www.thesoutherngeneral.com/menu.html
