Despite the summer heat remaining very much alive in Charleston, Labor Day weekend marks the winding down of the summer season and a weekend complete with good food + company. While we may be foregoing traditional Labor Day weekend gatherings + celebrations this year, that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy some of our favorite holiday weekend fares at home while supporting local restaurants.
From hands-off catering to some must-haves for the holiday weekend (we’re looking at you, barbecue!), take a look at our roundup of crave-worthy takeout options for your at home gathering.
Note: hours of operation vary between businesses. We recommend calling ahead to confirm hours and place takeout orders.
