Where: 6917 Stall Road, North Charleston
More info: 797-2006
Greetings, Spoleto- fugees (festival refugees).
Typically about this time of year, I try to generate a Lunch Counter for those who may want to escape the downtown hustle and bustle of festival season.
And if youíre up for visiting the intersection of Midland Park and Stall Road in North Charleston, then Iíve found your perfect destination.
Milanoís Pizza and Subs, which neighbors Big Tís Laundromat, which neighbors Big Tís service station, caters to most appetites, featuring pizza and subs, but also fried chicken, pasta, hot dogs, hamburgers, wings and authentic tacos.
The fried chicken here isnít exactly hand-battered, but rather itís Krispy Krunchy Chicken, a quick-serve fried chicken concept usually housed in gas stations, supermarkets and such.
Itís ďCajun-style,Ē paired in combo meals with boudin bites, jambalaya, red beans and rice, and seasoned fries.
If youíre feeling particularly frisky, thereís even catfish on the menu.
Better options may lie with the hand-tossed pizzas in 10-, 12- and 14-inch versions ($7.99-$13.99) that include a meat loversí pie, Hawaiian pizza, combo special and another done up with Alfred sauce and chicken.
But the best choice? The tacos: asada, pollo, chorizo, pastor.
They are dressed with cilantro and onions.
At $1.50 each, any combo is likely better than a Krispy Krunchy value pack.
Ditto for the tortas, as homemade red and green sauce is made available in squeeze bottles.
So, true, maybe itís not Spoleto territory, but Milanoís certainly grants a taste of the area that might otherwise go ignored.
