Lunch Bunch was really looking forward to this week’s meal at Hecklers. For starters, we shared the housemade onion rings that are thinly sliced, beer battered, delicately fried and served with a horseradish dipping sauce. Nikki was raving about the
onion rings, and we polished off a whole plate. We also tried the beer cheese dip with housemade chips. I really can’t think of anything better than beer cheese dip, it was so yummy.
Kim and Elizabeth shared their favorite barbecue chicken pizza, while Kim’s daughter sampled the teriyaki chicken wings.
Buck and Nikki ordered one of the most popular items on the menu, The Cheesesteak, made with Philly steak, white American cheese with sauteed onions. They both devoured their delicious sandwiches.
I tried The Club Man sandwich and it was excellent. Served on a hoagie roll, this sandwich has Guinness mustard, turkey breast, applewood bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion and melted Muenster cheese.
Special Lunch Bunch guest Daniel Brownstein had a build your own burger, cooked medium rare and topped with cheddar cheese and mushrooms. With a side of homemade fries and a Holy City beer to wash it down, this was a hearty, manly meal. Nikki said that you know the sign of a good burger if it has to have a knife sticking in it to keep it together.
Owner David Parker said the burgers are hand-pattied and never frozen. Even the fries are hand cut, and it’s that attention to quality ingredients that makes the food at Hecklers top notch. “It takes a lot of energy to make fresh food,” David said, but the effort is always worth it.
In addition to amazing food, Hecklers offers great nightly specials such as Wednesday wings (buy one pound, get one free!), Tuesday taco night and Friday prime rib for only $9.95. Thursday night’s karaoke with Steve always draws a crowd with drink specials and more than 20 beers on tap.
Hecklers is located at 2121 Boundary Street, Suite 100, Beaufort, SC, 29902. For more information, call 843-379-2090.
