After seeing Pawleys on Food Network's DD&D, I obviously had to give it a try. Since my first visit, I've been back 4-5 times in the past year. Very delish burgers. The meat is always cooked perfectly. Great pretzel buns. The Sullivan's with guac, grilled...More

This place was on Diners, Drive-in, and Dives. Some of my friends say this place is good, but i just wasnt impressed. I will revisit it next summer, once the college kids are gone.

Hello! I'm sorry to be so late in responding! It's a downtown restaurant with little parking for cars on busy days. Parking for an rv, it isn't something I've seen available down town Columbia. I'm sorry!
