Michael's Grille - SOL, March 22

***Warning - this post might not appeal to non-meat eaters. *** :)

Last night, my husband and I stopped at Rock Hill, South Carolina, on our way to Hilton Head.   We got in somewhat late, and immediately asked for directions to a good local dinner restaurant.  We were referred to Michael's Grille.

What a treasure this place was!!   After some glitches with our directions on the way to the restaurant (we basically doubled the distance we needed to drive), we finally arrived at a quaint place, complete with a lovely front porch.

When our waiter came to the table, we inquired as to what the specialities of the restaurant were.  His immediate reply, "The ribs."

Oh my goodness - he was so right.

These were the kind of ribs whose meat literally fall off the bone.  And then the glaze on the ribs was a mixture of special recipe barbecue sauce, honey, and sugar.  The folks at KFC might call their chicken "finger-lickin' good", but that's because they haven't eaten these ribs yet.  They were truly the best ribs I have ever eaten.

My husband and I tried to decide after dinner if we wanted to clean our fingers properly, or just lick off the bbq sauce; we opted for the proper thing to do, even though the latter idea would have been incredibly delicious.

As we fell asleep last night, I knew I wouldn't be dreaming of the lovely Hilton Head beaches that night, but instead would dream of the ribs from Michael's Grille.

If you haven't run to get in your car and drive to Michael's Grille in Rock Hill to order those ribs already, then maybe you should check out the other slices today at Two Writing Teachers blog.  Happy Saturday!! :)


  1. Yum! Sounds delicious. Enjoy your trip!

  2. Yum! I'm hungry just reading this! Hard to find good ribs in Denver!

  3. Even though you doubled the distance, it sounds like it was worth the wait.

  4. Yum & yum, Karen. So glad you found such a place to start the vacation off beautifully.Lucky you-the beach! I hope we'll see pictures!

  5. Karen,
    I always love the little places we stumble upon unexpectedly. Next beaches --- life is good.
