The best tailgate USC food ever!!! Great for a casual get together or get some lunch dishes/sides to go. Owners always ask if you need help & location is near USC.More

A great Sunday Brunch! Had the fried egg on croissant with the best homemade sausage. Everything I've ever tried here is delicious! But you better get the cheesy hash browns!!

It was cold in the restaurant so I didn't drink the ice water at first. After eating the food (which was good) I finally sipped the ice water. That was when I saw the purple lipstick smears on the rim of the glass. When brought...More

I visited this quaint restaurant while traveling in the area and always on the lookout for a local favorite. This spot did not disappoint any of us that day. We arrived after the normal lunch-hour rush so that might have helped with the efficient service,...More

Delightful classics with unique and special S.C. twists. Usually full, sweet outside place to wait (except at lunch on hot days). Only mayo they use is Duke's in their creations (good pesto mayo and red pepper mayo), so you KNOW it's good! Had the Fresh...More

The wait was not long. The gnats outside were unbearable. Restaurant seemed humid and therefore a little hot(I dont do well with humidity). Sandwiches were good, service was slow. People who were seated after us received their food before us. Different waiter, must have been...More

We were so surprised to arrive at 11:00 on a Saturday morning and not have to wait. Perhaps it was because school is out for summer. Everyone was satisfied with their breakfast (corned beef hash, omelet, eggs Charleston, eggs benedict). The pitcher of Mimosa was...More

DiPrato's Delicatessen opened May 2004, and, today, the DiPrato's Experience affords patrons a rewarding escape from ordinary fare. The reward? Delectable food, beautiful décor, and a beguiling balance: friendly service and a pleasant, neighborly feeling. DiPrato's, located where the Purple Cow grocer operated, graces a quiet neighborhood barely off the beaten path. Driving up, you notice the rich red brick, set off by greenery, and spacious windows where light pours in. Approaching the wooden, double-door entrance, a thought comes to mind. You're about to enjoy the DiPrato's Experience. You could say a Southern breeze laden with Italian accents drifts through this New York style delicatessen. Dine if you like on the patio where the glassy splash of falling water melts away concerns. Pita chips and pimento cheese are a real treat! Blend Dianne Light and Bill Prato's presence and culinary skills and you get a wonderfully popular delicatessen-DiPrato's.
