"Za" Just Got A Lot Closer...Rivers Avenue in North Charleston used to have two biker bars across the street from each other. Both closed and one became a guitar bar.
Then TJ & Tommy closed and, after months and months of waiting, last night one of our city's finest family-run pizza operations finally opened the doors of its 5th location.
Andolini's, which started on Wentworth Street back when cheese was first invented, has successfully branched out to Folly Road, West Ashley and Mount Pleasant and now has invaded the North. The family also owns the popular Juanita Greenberg's Nacho Royale on King Street.
The building is a calzone throw from Trident Community College and the site was becoming known as a "revolving door" risky business location.
Before American Biker and TJ, there was a period when Henry's - the one from the market area and Mt. Pleasant - had opened as a self-proclaimed upscale classy place...with a dress code. Yes, in North Chuck. No jeans, shorts, t-shirts or flip-flops. It soon closed.
So now I am able to enjoy two unique local pizza places in the North Charleston area, this new one and EVO's on East Montague, off Park Circle.
Smile and say CHEESE.
