Quoth the Raven, “More Chili”

Yes, just when you thought you’d eaten giant slabs of meat in every environment possible, Sullivan’s Island in SC produces Poe’s Tavern, an Edgar Allen Poe-themed restaurant that happens to serve a variety of creative and magnificently chunky half-pound burgers.

I had the black cat, which is what you see pictured here. It includes drunken chili, bacon and pimento cheese. It was the pimento cheese that really intrigued me; I’d never had it with a burger before. It went perfectly with the chili, the sour tang mixing well with the sweet chili and the perfectly cooked beef. Order medium here; you’ll get medium rare. The burger itself is a big round ball, ike a giant meatball made of the south’s best heifers.

The full menu, including the Pit & Pendulum, the Tamerlane and the Tell-Tale Heart, is available here.

For the record, you can get all of these with grilled chicken instead of beef, if the beef bells aren’t ringing for you. And yes, that was a Poe attempt at humor… yikes.
