An Affordable Charleston Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is upon us and I thought what better way to get into the Thanksgiving spirit than by highlighting some great, affordable ways to support local Charleston businesses to supply all your feasting needs! Upon my investigating, I discovered three restaurants in Charleston that offer Thanksgiving sandwiches at a very affordable price, as well as multiple restaurants offering Thanksgiving meals to take home at reasonable prices. Keep reading to learn all about my discoveries!


Tattooed Moose:

Tattooed Moose is known particularly for their duck fat fries, but another staple on their menu that also happens to be a fan favorite is their Thanksgiving sandwich. This sandwich is complete with shredded roasted turkey, cornbread stuffing, cranberry sauce, mayo, and crispy fried onions on toasted wheat bread. It comes with chips and a side of gravy for dipping! Cost for this sandwich is just $9.50.


Circe’s Grotto:

This sandwich shop is a staple for CofC students. They serve up warm breakfast sandwiches and wraps in the morning and a variety of deli sandwiches and salads for lunch, including a heaping Thanksgiving sandwich, complete with fresh, sliced roasted turkey breast, lots of stuffing, cranberry sauce and mayo. You truly get a full Thanksgiving meal in just one sandwich at Circe’s. Cost for this sandwich is just $9.50.



This restaurant is only offering their Thanksgiving sandwich on Thanksgiving Day, but it only costs $9, proving to be the cheapest sandwich option. It is complete with turkey, cranberry mayo, cornbread stuffing, and gravy served on thick-cut white bread.
