My favorite Food Network program is Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, with Guy Fieri. Fieri travels the country looking for the kinds of places I like to eat. We tried one of the places featured on his show while we were in Charleston last spring, the Fuel Cafe.
Located in a former gas station, this restaurant features a marriage of southern and Carribbean dishes. Theresa and I both had the jerk chicken sandwich with sweet potato fries. Good stuff! We ate outdoors on the patio since the weather was mild, and the photo above shows a colorful mural and tropical plants on the back wall of the former gas station.
