Destination diners may venture out to Johns Island seeking French or Italian, but locals know that a modest sandwich shop called The Southern General is just as much worth the drive. The Southern General divides its list of sandwich offerings between The General’s Sandwiches and a collection of craft sandwiches that amp up traditional offerings. The Super Butt comes with braised pork, smoky-sweet onion-mustard relish, and spicy-sweet potato cream cheese on a brioche bun. Other winners include the Cu-Bahn-Mi with candied pork belly and sweet potato garlic kimchi topped with a guavenero-banana mustard that deftly fuses habanero peppers with guava fruit. —Kinsey Gidick (Dish, Summer 2019)
Craft sandwiches, 1/2 pound Angus burgers with custom toppings, and plenty more housemade specialties to choose from.
