A South Carolina restaurant has just been named one of the best nightlife spots — and now its cheeseburgers are getting accolades.

Husk, located in the tourist destination of Charleston, ranks first among the best places in the state to get a burger, according to results released Tuesday, August 23.

The Charleston restaurant topped the list after review website Yelp surveyed businesses with several burger-related reviews. It then “ranked these spots using a number of factors, including total volume and ratings of reviews mentioning ‘cheeseburger’ between January 1, 2022 and July 15, 2022,” the results show.

Husk, who won first place in South Carolina, is no stranger to recognition.

Earlier in August, restaurant reservation website OpenTable named Husk one of the best places in the country for a romantic date. While this list focused on the evening experience, the most recent rankings considered an item that is often served earlier in the day.

Cheeseburgers have been part of Husk’s rotating brunch menu several times this month. On Yelp, diners said they couldn’t live without their patties topped with onions or pickles, earning the restaurant four out of five stars.

Some fans also raved about Instagram, where photos show melted cheese oozing between two buns.

Husk — which also has locations in Nashville, Tennessee and Savannah, Georgia — operates under strict principles.

“At Husk, there are rules about what goes on the plate,” the company wrote on its website. “If it doesn’t come from the South, it doesn’t come through the door.”

The Charleston Restaurant is on Queen Street, just off the popular King Street shopping centre. Although the city’s restaurants have been honored time and time again, they missed out on another recent burger list.

No Palmetto State restaurant has been named among those serving the “most outrageous” burgers in the country. The ranking included a creation consisting of four patties stacked between Belgian waffles, McClatchy News reported in June.
