Pawley’s Front Porch (Columbia, SC)
827 Harden St, Columbia, SC 29205
Pawley’s Front Porch is a kind of sports bar with an odd porch on quite a busy street in the Five Points area of Columbia, South Carolina. It is famous for its burgers, which they serve in about 10 different and quite original varieties. Given its reputation, I have quite high expectations.
I get the Wadmalah ($10.75): chipotle BBQ sauce, fried pickle chips, and applewood smoked bacon (no cheddar) on an 8oz burger. While the burger was freshly prepared, it tasted dry and salty. The fries were soggy and undercooked and salty.
Disappointing. Seems more an institution than a really good place to eat. Does get an extra point for having a food truck though.
