The Post & Courier is reporting that a Steak 'n Shake location will be opening at 4821 Tanger Outlet Boulevard, which is near the Crowne Plaza Hotel in North Charleston.
The franchise, which I still maintain has the greatest restaurant name in history, is known for - wait for it - steakburgers and milkshakes.
***UPDATE, 6/3/13*** - The location is scheduled to open on June 27th.
***UPDATE, 6/27/13*** - A ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place today at 9:30 am. The restaurant will then open at 10 am.
The same P&C article mentioned the tentative July 1st opening of a new Lebanese restaurant at 298 King Street. It will be called Leyla and will be housed in the old Sushi Hiro/Izakaya Ramen location.
The article mentions that one of the owners, Dolly Awkar, is a professor of Arabic language at the College of Charleston.
