We recently had the opportunity to spend one night on the outskirts of Charleston with some friends on the beautiful James Island. They took us to two restaurants we wanted to share with you.

The first was Rita's Seaside Grille on Folly Beach. We have eaten here before for breakfast and had a great experience (the shrimp and grits were awesome), but this time we were able to try lunch. Counting our calories, we went thinking we'd have a nice salad, but when we saw a burger go by, we couldn't help but to try one. We ordered the Jalapeno Burger with fries and it was as wonderful as it looked. The jalapenos are fresh though so beware! They got a little hot! The meat was very tasty and the fries were wonderfully seasoned.

After eating our burger, a neighboring table ordered the barbecue sundae. Oh my. If we weren't stuffed, we'd have ordered that too so we just took a picture and asked about it. Turns out, they put barbecue, queso and mozzerella cheese in a sundae dish with tortilla chips. Now you tell me what could possibly be better that that?? With good food, beer and a view, this is a great little stop next time you're near Folly Beach, SC.

The next morning we stopped at Triangle Char and Bar for brunch as we were headed out of town. Such a fun place with a fun menu too. I had the crab cakes which were two small cakes on fluffy biscuits topped with a poached egg and hollandaise sauce. YUMM! Rusty isn't much of a breakfast fan so he went with the fish tacos. He ate every last bite so they must have been good. While waiting for our food to get there we all shared the cinnamon rolls. I have to say they have an amazing glazed topping that makes them a must have! All in all, with two locations and an open air feel on a nice warm day, this is a great place to stop and have a great brunch!
