VERY'S GREAT PHILLY FOOD - 6729 Two Notch Road

"For serious eaters only."

This place has been around for 21 years, but for whatever reason no one in our group had ever heard of it. The parking lot full of cars that greeted us upon our arrival showed that we may be the only ones in town unaware of this local gem. If you are willing to sacrifice a bit of ambiance and service in exchange for a high quality Philly Cheese-steak, Hoagie, or other Italian staple, then head over to Very's Great Philly Food. Located in a section of town normally reserved for car dealerships and cash-advance outlets, Very's offers a variety of items at a great price. Of particular note are the pizzas, which can be ordered for one or the table, as well as the Philly Cheese-steak Sandwiches, which feature authentic ingredients (rolls and meats ordered straight from Philadelphia, PA) prepared the old-fashioned way. They also have several traditional Italian dishes, which appear to be big enough to feed two people. Don't miss your chance to take in the salad bar either, which boasts a robust selection of surprisingly fresh veggies, cheeses and meats.

The only downside to this place is that it can be a bit slow at lunch (we recommend ordering your drink and meal at the same time), and it is a bit of a drive from our downtown locale (10-12 minutes by car). All in all, a great place to get away for some filling cuisine at prices that will make you think it's still 1988.

p.s. Being the best place we've eaten so far this month, we've made Very's our Lunch Spot of the Week. Click on the top of the Blog for a link to the Website.

Rabbit, Tank, and The Publican are three dudes just trying to get through the work week here in Columbia. Rabbit is a Columbia native, Tank is from Charleston, and The Publican hails from Greenville. Rabbit's favorite lunch spot is the No Name Deli on Elmwood, where you may find him putting down a grilled chicken salad and a side of vinegar pasta. The Publican usually wants to find food to cure his all-too-common hangovers. Tank claims no favorite lunch spot - he lives for the thrill of the hunt.
