There's been a bit of speculation on Have Your Say about whether D. L. McLaughlin's in Irmo is closed or not. Judging from the signage on the building, both of the practical "For Sale" and the sentimental "Thanks for the memories" type, and adding in the Facebook page, I think I can say that it definitely is.

In the event, I think I only ate here once. I was a fan of the old Sub Cabin in West Columbia, and this was either the follow-on or sibling to that operation, but even though it was good, it was just too far for me to go.

Anyone know the story of the archer on the coat-of-arms?

  1. This place was open for a long time. I only ate there once (long ride from Forest Acres), and that was in the early '90s.

  2. I would occasional stop by for lunch at DL's, even though it was out of the way for me. They had the best cheesesteaks in town . . . but don't call them cheesesteaks! You had to order them as a "steak special, mixed peppers."

  3. I did an image search on coat of arms for McLaughlin and none I can find has an archer on it. No idea where they found that....

  4. Look at just 'Laughlin' instead, and you should find coats of arms with archers, and the motto 'Anchora Salutis', which apparently means 'Anchor of Salvation.'

  5. And looking at the owner's facebook page, looks like they just decided to retire and move to Chuck town. Good for them!

  6. I'd sort of forgotten about this restaurant, as I rarely make it out that way. I ate there a few times and really liked their cheese steaks. Another good cheese steak place out that way that also sadly closed a couple of years back was Interstate Steaks and Hoagies. That leaves Very's and The Kingsman as two sources of good cheese steaks; anyone know of any other good ones?

  9. I agree with Kenneth. Nick's has a good Philly steak sandwich.

  11. American Deli on Decker has a pretty good Philly steak, pretty sloppy with a boatload of fries.
