Last weekend I was lucky enough to be able to visit with some family. As they live on the West coast, I don’t get to see them much. We spent Sunday afternoon with them on Folly Beach. Initially we were going to go to Lost Dog but they were closed so we took them to Rita’s instead.
Folly Beach is the Edge of America and Rita’s (they don’t have a website FYI) is a block away from the very Edge. Rita’s is equipped with a Bloody Mary bar featuring Charleston Mix, the best Mary mix as far as the Southern Gent and I are concerned.
Once we had our Mary’s in hand we set about the business of ordering and the food did not disappoint. As we were there on Sunday, we ordered off their Sunday Brunch Menu.
Anyway, three out of the five of us ordered a chorizo omelet. This was no ordinary omelet. It had some sausage in it that was out of this world, with some vegetables and then potatoes on the side that reminded me of the kind I used to have at the Lodge at Buck’s Lake growing up. In other words, yummy!
My mom had a Caesar Salad with blackened shrimp. She raved about it too. I don’t remember what the fifth in the group ordered but she had nothing but good things to say about her meal. Oh, I almost forgot! I ordered pancakes too! The Southern Gent even had a few bites and agreed they were some of the best pancakes he ever had and he does not really like pancakes. I have one word for you butter! That had to have been the secret to those flap jacks.
So, the Lost Dog now has some serious competition for our occasional Sunday morning forays to the Edge. Stop by yourself. You will leave stuffed and happy. Did I mention they have patio seating?
