Settled in the upper end of downtown Charleston lies a cute and quaint restaurant called Dellz Uptown. If you haven’t been before, we highly recommend you give it a try! It started out as a strictly vegan/vegetarian restaurant, but has since added fish & chicken to their menu. Their prices are fairly reasonable for the portion of food you get and on Thursdays they offer, “Taco Thursday”, which includes $2 off any of their tacos.
Laura, my husband and I decided to go check this amazing place out tonight with a Meetup group called “Charleston Veggies and Vegans”. They offer 10% off anything on the menu for anyone who is a part of the Meetup group. The group meets at Dellz on the third Thursday of each month. Even if you’re not vegan or vegetarian, they surely would welcome you in! We made lots of new friends while enjoying our delicious meal.
For a starter, we went with the Red Pepper Hummus Dip, which was $8. It comes with cucumbers, carrots, mango salsa, Green Goddess dressing, spicy sauce, avocado, sprouts and pita bread and chips for dipping. The hummus was out of this world and tasted very fresh. The Green Goddess dressing was also a pure delight! It was a vinaigrette-based dressing with a light consistency, and had the flavors of a Greek dressing – with a little added spice.
For our meal we chose the “Jazzy Pizza,” which includes mixed cheeses, brown rice, black beans, mixed bell peppers, sliced mushrooms, mango salsa, avocado, sweet and spicy sauce, mixed greens and spicy sour cream. This pizza was amazing and was probably one of the best pizzas I have ever had. It had so much flavor and you could tell that all the ingredients were fresh and homemade. The pizza was 12 inches and cost $15.
Between all three of us, it was plenty of food (and my husband eats a lot)! We even had leftovers to take home with us and only spent about $8 each! Now that’s a great deal. We will definitely be back to try other options on their menu.
It’s safe to say that if you want to get the best bang for your buck at Dellz, come on the third Thursday of the month with the Charleston Veggie and Vegan Meetup group, split your meal with some friends, and you’ve got yourself a very filling meal for probably under $10!
