North Charleston runs in the blood of Cork Neighborhood Bistro?s proprietor, Tradd Ashley Gibbs, whose South Carolina roots stretch back for generations. As the seasons change, so do the dishes and the ingredients that go into his menu of southern-style comfort fare and seafood. Executive Chef Heather Edwards mixes up hearty pots of shrimp and grits with smoked sausage and tasso gravy and uses seasonal veggies to adorn dishes with all the flair of a peacock wearing a tropical fruit hat.
Domino's recently reformulated its pizza recipe, which puts the buyer in command of a plentitude of pie-personalizing possibilities. Test the sturdiness of a hand-tossed thin crust with mounds of hearty marinara, ham, chicken, green peppers, black olives, and spinach, or fill a deep-dish foundation with alfredo sauce, bacon, onions, jalapeños, fresh mushrooms, and banana peppers. While delicious design options stretch into infinity like a taffy pull in a black hole, the eatery's specialty pizzas make choosing more manageable. Peruse pies like the MeatZZa Feast, which is piled high with pepperoni, ham, italian sausage, beef, and extra mozzarella, and the Pacific Veggie, a flashy West Coast–concoction of roasted red peppers, spinach, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, black olives, feta, mozzarella, and provolone.
Juicy Steaks International dispenses succulent, 100% certified cuts of steak, chicken, and seafood by the case for carnivorous clients to store in their home freezers. Ribs and burgers satiate palates alongside bites of tender fillets, new york strips, and porterhouses, which puzzle wolves who cannot decide between eating them and blowing them down. Chicken-breast fillets arrive slathered in delectable sauces, such as honey mustard or southwestern, and an extensive selection of lobsters, shrimp, groupers, and red snappers treat taste buds stricken with maritime munchies. Juicy Steaks International can also throw tailgate parties, during which staffers man the Juicy Steaks Smoker Grill and supply all the necessary chow, setup, and cleanup for pregame festivities. The meat-focused outfit also caters a wide array of family and group events with special meals such as deep-fried turkey, and offers authentic Caribbean eats, such as oxtail and jerk pork, for lunchtime carry-out or delivery.
Ron Haynes and his daughter, Jessie, have built a business from smiling faces. They don't snap yearbook photos or transform dentist gloves into balloon animals. Instead, they helm teeth-whitening shops that brighten smiles in 20 minutes. Since 2005, they have brightened over 50,000 smiles annually across five states. The locations in North Carolina offer either convenience at their South Park Mall kiosk or privacy at their office locations. Armed with Beaming White, a special light activated gel teeth-whitening system that pairs a peroxide-based gel with a UV-free LED light, their team of technicians helps clients brighten their choppers with an applicator pen. An applicator pen exposes the teeth so the gel and light reach every inch of enamel. Once the light unites with the gel, coffee, tea, and grass stains begin to vanish. Teeth continue to lighten after the treatment, achieving a color that's 3-7 shades whiter over the course of 24 hours. With proper care, results can last up to 12 months, or roughly the time it takes to adapt the phonebook into a comedic opera.
Though it professes a dedication to classic old-world dining, there's nothing expected on the menu at Cannon Bar & Kitchen. Here, salmon filets are paired with jalape?o risotto and locally-sourced vegetables, chicken wings are smoked, short ribs are braised in sweet tea, and even grilled cheese sandwiches receive extra zest with the addition of ghost pepper jack, widely regarded as the eeriest cheese. On Saturdays, the restaurant extends its unconventionally flavorful reach to brunch, serving up vanilla bourbon panini and rustic potato casserole with crispy pancetta.
Chill-n-Grill?s kitchen grills light up for oversized burgers, chicken, pork chops, and sweet italian sausages. The chefs also build American favorites, including burgers and wings. The eatery?s decor is a mix of past and present, with baroque armoires and faux-marbled golden walls that pair with modern tiled floors and no-frills seating. Most nights feature live entertainment, including karaoke singing, DJs spinning tunes, and a triangle player.
