Owners Brandon Lapp and Steve Klatt, two classically trained chefs, have brought southern-inspired fare to their menu since 2017, through their food truck, and are now excited to open their first stand-alone restaurant. Braised in the South gained popularity when they were named winners of Food Network’s ‘The Great Food Truck Race’ Season 8.
All seating is outdoors available at a first come first serve basis, and the restaurant is following city guidelines for social distancing. Unfortunately, pets are not allowed.
“We are overwhelmed with the amount of love we’ve received through this whole process. We started serving the Charleston area just three years ago, and in that time, we’ve gained the biggest, most supportive family,” said owners Steve Klatt and Brandon Lapp. “From one small food truck, to multiple trucks and a permanent location, you guys have been with us every step of the way. We only dreamed about being where we are today, and we are so thankful for your support.”
