Worlds Greatest Cheat Day
One day and a lot of appetite are the requirements for this eat-fest in Columbia, South Carolina. The city’s signature dish is a pimento cheeseburger, nowhere more magnificent than at the Kingsman. Columbia is barbecue nirvana, as evidenced at Big Boy’s Smokehouse. It’s also a great city in which to greet the morning — with superb coffee at Drip, artisan pastries at Rise Bakeshop, and cloud-light omelets and crisp hash browns at Ray’s Diner. Soul-food meat-and-three meals are a Ray’s specialty, too.
One of the best BBQs in South Carolina, Big Boy's is a casual restaurant serving ribs, pulled pork, chicken, turkey wings, even first-rate beef brisket.
