Sumter, South Carolina, had modest beginnings as a plantation town before it became notable as a strategic base during the Civil War. It grew into a key industrial center, and today is still one of the area’s most popular cities for trading and business, and is also home to a military base. Read on for 10 great suggestions for eating in Sumter.

Willie Sue’s

Willie Sue’s has become a local favorite due to its cosy local charm. It offers comfort food such as grilled chicken, shrimp skewers, and tasty southern steak. The exterior of the restaurant is designed in a traditional Civil War–era style that is well suited to the history of the city, with wooden beams and cladding. Inside, there are pictures of the city’s past, such as of work at the cotton mills or on the farms; the restaurant has a great genuine local flavor.

Yucatan Mexican Restaurant

Located pretty much at the center of town, Yucatan is a family-owned Mexican restaurant, offering classic dishes such as fajitas, tacos, and burritos, which can be washed down with a crisp and refreshing margarita. The restaurant is almost hidden away at the corner of a shopping complex, but is certainly a hidden gem. It is popular with locals who believe it to be the best Mexican restaurant in town, not only for food but also for friendly service.
