They have some familiar menu items and also some unusual offerings but all is good and very moderately priced.

Had lunch here today. My friend had the "house" salad with chicken. I had one of the daily special wraps: chicken, bacon, onions (I left these out!), avocado, cheese and greens with a side salad -- a lot of food -- and delicious! Staff is courteous and friendly. My wrap and drink was a little over $11. Well worth it.

This little gem is hidden away on "Short Central"...only steps from the parking garage in the historic downtown area. Their food is fresh and the menu has a great selection of salads/sandwiches. They also have great daily specials!

There are tons of fresh selections to chose from at Electic Chef. I've been a fan of this place for years! It never disappoints. You must get desert if you go there!

This place is always awesome!! It is in a perfect place for a little downtown shopping with great shops all around it and the food is always terrific. They do have to prepare it fresh, so it isn't fast food, but when you get it, just YUM! If you haven't tried this place, GO!

Stopped in for lunch here with my parents. I just moved to the area and have been trying out different places to eat in Summerville. Most places we've been to have been just wonderful, but E Chef was SO good, I had to write a review. The food was exceptional - their pick two combo was a wonderful choice. Anyone... More

Eclectic food which is fresh and their service is great. Off of the belated path, but worth looking for.

Much smaller space than I imagined. You have to order at the counter and then they bring your food out to you. I had a brisket quesadilla and my husband had a reuben sandwich. I had a side of pasta. Quesadilla was really good but very light on cheese. Pasta would have been good but swimming in a very vinegary... More
