I picked this place based on the reviews, and I guess I expected too much! The atmosphere was cool for a downtown location, but I felt pricing and portion size was not good!

Loved this little deli on our visit to Charleston recently. Had the duck sandwich and it was VERY good and creative flavor pairings. We loved BDD so much that we tried to eat there twice in the same weekend, but the line was out the door the second time so we wandered on. Great food, fast service, highly recommend.
