1117 Magnolia Road (West Ashley)
Dinner, Late Night, & Sun. Lunch
Legendary hotdog combos (the Reuben, the Hot Mess, El Guapo) and a great new sandwich menu.
This classic dive and music venue, complete with a Willy Wonka mural and a sizeable patio, specializes in hearty hot dogs. Their most popular dog is the Maple Leaf, topped with maple soy syrup, honey mustard, bacon, and relish. It tastes like dipping your sausage in maple syrup on Sunday morning. The Mango has mango salsa, spicy mustard, cabbage, mayo, and bacon. For those looking for savory, they've got a mean Chicago dog, and the Suzy's Weiner dog has chili, homemade jalapeño pimento cheese, and onion. They also serve sandwiches and burgers, and vegetarians can chow down on the Boca Burger. All sandwich bread, hot dog buns, and burger buns come from Ashley Bakery. Sunday brunch runs the gamut from breakfast wraps to breakfast nachos, made with raw fries topped with scrambled eggs, cheddar, bacon, and Sriracha. —Amelia Thomson, Dish (Summer 2012)

Scott Ranger is terrible at life! says... Scott, Scott, Scott – You ignorant slut! Break away from World of Warcraft for two seconds, get your facts straight and quit stalking local businesses on the internet. All of the owners, staff and patrons of the establishments mentioned below frequent each other’s establishments quite often and are highly supportive of one another. You lose at life, you negative creep – If I were you, I would take two weeks off and then quit! ★★★★★
ScottRanger says... Bigots, frat boys and high school drop outs… Please don’t presume to hold the Tin Spoof in the company of the other establishments you mentioned. That’s just dreaming. Here’s to the destruction of this hole… the only sad thing would be all the displaced rats and roaches from the kitchen… You stinking homophobes!!!!! ★★★★★
Two years ago, Charleston funnyman Jason Groce started organizing and hosting a local stand-up comedy showcase at the Tin Roof in West Ashley and called it Little Caesar's Palace. The events took place on the last Sunday evening of every month, where he booked dozens comics and purchased a stack of pizzas from a local Little Caesar's for the audience to enjoy. The series caught on. Last August, the club received a surprise in the mail: a cease-and-desist letter from lawyers representing the actual Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, threatening legal action unless the comedy series ditched the name. Groce read the entire letter during his opening set in September. The sign on the club's marquee that night read "Generic Brand Pizza, Comedy, and Lawsuits." They adjusted the name to "TROM" (Tin Roof Open Mic) over the winter. No word from Little Caesar's Pizza yet.
