    I am going to be driving through Columbia on Thursday around lunch time and was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions/favorites? Thanks!

    Booches for burgers
    G&D for Greek (and the scenery is usually pretty good)
    Bangkok Garden for Thai
    CJ's for wings
    Subshop for subs
    Shakespeare's for pizza
    D. Rowe's for Americana
    Flat Branch if you're looking for a micro brew

    I'm sure I'm leaving out a bunch if good places, but these are some of my favorites.

    Ate Booche's for the first time yesterday, and yes I'm a native Columbian. :stickfight: The burgers were simple, yet tasted delicious. They are on the smaller side for a traditional cheeseburger, so I'd recommend about 3 for a man. It's down on 9th street, about two blocks south of Broadway.

    Hooter's for obvious reasons. :eek:

    G & D's in Crossroads shopping center at Stadium and Broadway. (Scenery never lets you down)

    Teppanyaki or Hu Hot for oriental flavor.

    It's always easier to eat right off the highway and get on down the road again. It always seems like you lose an extra 30 minutes of driving by going into town. :shrug:

    I'll vote Hooters only because I think Showme's has been closed for a couple years :D

    Boone Tavern is my wife's favorite. I like CrackerBarrel.

    Definitely agree. Booches for a burger and a beer, then on to Willys for the best wings EVER!

    Jimmy's Steak House on S. Providence. It's on the right hand side at Green Meadows. Awesome food, and good service. Love them big ol' plate sized tenderloins.
