LOWCOUNTRY PROUD: Evelyn's Diner in Bonneau

Posted: Updated:

The Lowcountry is known for having some of the best food in the entire country and Berkeley County is steeping in to add a dash of local flavor as well.

We asked News 2 viewers on Facebook to tell us some of the best places to eat in the county and they logged on with some great ideas.

Several people suggested that we try out a restaurant that we'd never heard of -- a small diner in Bonneau called Evelyn's. So, we hopped in the car and drove out to the edge of Lake Moultrie. What we found was some food that we will gladly make a drive for again.

While the cell phone service may not be great, you'll likely find the best service that you'll ever get at a restaurant.

Started almost 45 years ago by the late Miss Evelyn, her daughters are still serving up a taste of Lowcountry southern fried hospitality with a sense of community as sweet as the tea.

Join News 2's Larry Collins for a trip to the hidden treasure of Evelyn's Diner.

    A former police officer recalls how he nearly lost his life in the line of duty one evening back in 1970. He was paralyzed from the waist down but didn't let them hold him back from working or helping implement big changes for police officer's training and cars. It's been nearly 44 years since that day Gilbert Smith was ordered to take a drunken suspect found on the road to jail.
