Here's what LoveFood had to say:
"On the edge of downtown Charleston, Rutledge Cab Company brings old-school diner charm to an old gas station. Customers instantly fall in love with the interior, all mahogany wood, and with a wall dominated by a decal of a late-1950s Ford Edsel. The menu lives up to those first impressions, featuring creative takes on comfort food classics such as baked spinach dip, burgers served on onion-brioche buns, and a variety of inventive plates for breakfast or brunch."
