The idea for this blog is to blog about everything I think about food and food culture. I'll tell you what I like to eat, where I like to eat it and if I thought it was good or if I thought it was crap. My thoughts about food could go anywhere. Hey if you don't like it go blog at methodicaldudereallythinksalotaboutthefoodhesgoingtoeat.blogspot.com

Misc: The service was very good considering we had a large party of 8. Our food was out promptly with little confusion and my drink was refilled without asking. Charleston's also has a full bar and selection of good beers on draft if you're so inclined.
Overall I think Charleston's is a great local restaurant with locations on 82nd street in Castleton and on Highway 37 in Carmel. Let's do the ratings.
Taste: 9/10 I know it's only coleslaw, but if Charleston's is doing comfort food they need to get that right. Worthy of a full point deduction.
Value: 8/10 It's a little bit more pricey than your average fast casual restaurant, but it's not that much more expensive and the food is of such a higher quality it can barely be considered in the same league.
Randomness: 7/10 Charleston's is pretty well known locally so it can't really be considered off the beaten path, but it hardly qualifies as a big chain on a national level. Also, it is quite dark on the inside and has gaslights which I find pretty random in 2011.
