Palmetto Subs, 5086 Sunset Boulevard: Fall 2017   7 comments

Posted at 10:46 pm in closing

















I had held off doing this closing as I never could tell for sure if the place was closed, or just not ever open when I would drive by. I think the real-estate sign in the last shot pretty much settles the question.

This sandwich shop was the follow-on operation to The Lost Cajun. I thought it was a bit unusual that it would reopen as a sandwich shop as the plaza already has a Roly Poly on the other side but I guess that one is more "wrap" oriented. As I intimated above, I never visited Palmetto Subs as it was never open when I was in the area, and I'll admit though I love sandwiches I also like padded booths and a little bit more substantial atmosphere. (As I've said before, I would love if somebody brought the "Dagwood's" concept from Surfside Beach to Columbia..)

Although I did not know it at the time Plametto Subs is a regional chain, and continues to have stores in Florence, Sumter & Darlington.

(Hat tips to commenter Brian and I believe a number of others)

  1. That unit seems cursed! And being the closest to the road you'd think it would have the best visibility.

  2. I drive by there almost every day and my observation is that there is insufficient parking to support another restaurant. Between Momma Rabbits and Travinia; the parking lot stays full during lunch. It is almost a traffic hazard since cars rotate in and out continuously trying to get find an open slot.

  5. I've read that Subway has the largest number of franchised restaurants but truth be known I rarely go to any of the sub places...

  6. This place had a lot of things not going in their favor, as others have mentioned the traffic and parking. They had the darkest tinted windows I have ever seen, you couldn't ever tell if they were open and they were only open until 4 pm.

  7. I was in this area yesterday and saw a door open and other signs of activity leading me to believe that something new is about to move in (though what it is ain't exactly clear yet)...
