Ruth's has been family owned and operated since 1945 specializing in hotdogs, hamburgers, and southern cooked lunches. The business started out as a grocery store with a sawdust floor. In 1948, Ruth's started selling hot dogs out the back window. In 2009, Southern Living set out to find the top five pimento cheeseburgers in South Carolia and Ruth's was the only small town restaurant on the list! Ruth’s Drive In’s pimento cheeseburger earned honorable mention.
