About Columbia, SC


Columbia, South Carolina is sometimes referred to as \The Capital City of Southern Hospitality.\ Columbia prides itself on being a warm, friendly city that serves up the best Southern cuisine you can find, especially when it comes to SC Barbecue, which is slow-cooked with a special sauce of yellow mustard and apple cider vinegar, giving it a tang that's like nothing else.
