JOHNS ISLAND, S.C. (Lowcountry Weekend) - If you love Mexican cuisine, you have a new dining option in the Lowcountry.
Minero Mexican Grill & Cantina opened for dinner on Thursday at the space formerly occupied by The Fat Hen, at 3140 Maybank Highway.
The Neighborhood Dining Group says the opening marked a new chapter for the Minero name. The Johns Island location will continue its legacy of hand-pressed tortillas and Mexican favorites created by the former downtown Charleston Minero, with the addition of new menu items and an expanded indoor-outdoor footprint.
“We’re thrilled to bring Minero back in a new home on Johns Island, one of Charleston’s most exciting areas,” Neighborhood Dining Group President David Howard said. “Fans will recognize the same heart of what we do at Minero – attention to detail, great ingredients, and honoring Mexican traditions – but with a fresh take on both the menu and atmosphere. We can’t wait to serve Charleston once again and are appreciative of the warm welcome from the great residents of Johns Island.”
The kitchen is helmed by Executive Chef Shamil Velazquez, also of the group’s Delaney Oyster House, bringing inspiration from his Puerto Rican upbringing and chef-driven techniques to the newest outpost of the concept.
The menu is anchored by Minero staples like charcoal-grilled wings, tacos, and the burrito, as well as the tradition of making corn tortillas from scratch daily, but with exciting new additions for a fresh take on the Mexican concept.
Velazquez incorporates Latin American influences into the menu, including more seafood dishes, crudos, and ceviches, while drawing from Mexico’s coastal regions for inspiration.
“We knew the Minero favorites weren’t going anywhere on the menu, but we wanted to bring some additional elements, especially to highlight some of the great ingredients we get in the South and along our coast,” Velazquez said. “Mexican food can be celebrated through many different techniques, and I’m looking forward to bring a new perspective to the concept with the same emphasis on local ingredients and quality offerings.”

Minero’s menu honors Mexico’s culinary traditions while weaving in inspiration from the culinary South.
The menu features longstanding Minero favorites including Charcoal-Grilled Wings tossed with Valentina; a Salsa Tasting including Benne, Rojo, and Verde; and the Minero Burrito featuring red rice, beans, Oaxaca cheese, crema, poblano, cabbage, cilantro, salsa verde, and avocado.
Exciting new additions include the Fajitas Al Carbon with charred onions, bell peppers, pico de gallo, crema, guacamole, red rice, beans, and housemade flour tortillas; the Yucatán Style Local Catch featuring crispy fingerling potatoes, pickled yum yum peppers, and pibil sauce; and Shrimp & Snapper Ceviche made with a ceviche sour michelada mix, cucumber, peanut, red onion, mandarin, radish and chips. The restaurant offers five signature tacos, including Fried Catfish or Grilled Fish, Cauliflower, Charcoal Chicken, Grilled Steak, and Pork Al Pastor. Select brunch items will be served on the weekends, including Steak and Eggs and Breakfast Burrito with hash brown, salsa verde, and huevos.
Beverages include the classic Minero Margarita with reposado and añejo tequilas, fresh lime, orange juice, curaçao, and agave, guests can personalize their margarita experience by DIY-ing it, adding a pineapple twist, boosting it for a crowd (the “Party” serves six), or even making it extra with a bottle-down Modelito and a choice of sidecar. Frozen concoctions, such as the Frosé Sangria and the El Santanico, and a comprehensive beer list featuring both Mexican and local options round out the alcoholic offerings, while a zero-proof margarita and refreshers provide plenty of options to abstain.
No reservations are needed. Seating is first-come, first-served.
The restaurant hours include dinner service on Sunday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 4 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Happy Hour is Monday through Thursday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
The restaurant plans to add daytime service at a later date.

Charleston to spend around $10M to fix drainage issues on Johns Island
CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The City of Charleston says it is looking to spend millions of dollars to create a creek and additional wetlands to address street flooding and drainage issues on over 500 acres of Johns Island.Rather than paving the area over for the Barberry Woods Drainage Improvement Project, the city said it is opting for a more ecological approach.“Creating our own semi-natural creek system.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The City of Charleston says it is looking to spend millions of dollars to create a creek and additional wetlands to address street flooding and drainage issues on over 500 acres of Johns Island.
Rather than paving the area over for the Barberry Woods Drainage Improvement Project, the city said it is opting for a more ecological approach.
“Creating our own semi-natural creek system. It will look like a natural creek, even though we had dug it out,” Charleston Stormwater Management Director Matthew Fountain said. “Then, you would build a flood plain on either side of the creek that can hold water during storm events that would be built-in with natural vegetation.”
Photos captured the flooding following a heavy storm in the Barberry Woods neighborhood near Maybank Highway and River Road, which the project is named after.
City officials said the project will make the flooding drain faster and be less frequent.
Two homeowners who have been living in Barberry Woods since the mid-2000s said they love where they live, but a fix to their drainage problems has been long overdue.
“Once we do get the flooding, the flooding remains, and there’s no way for it to go,” homeowner Shannon Baker said. “It turns into a swimming pool scenario. I tried to get a vehicle out, and I did it a little too early, so I lost that [GMC] Yukon.”
“A week after I bought the house, my mother and my brother were visiting and came out onto my top porch, and they saw somebody kayaking past my house,” homeowner Kim Hicks said.
The city said a combination of developments downstream and blocked drainage ways are to blame for the flooding.
They also said the project was first inspired several years ago by the Dutch Dialogues. The city, along with the Historic Charleston Foundation, created the Dutch Dialogues in 2019 to discuss ways to work with the land that’s already there to reduce flooding risks on the peninsula, in West Ashley and on Johns Island.
“Don’t fix flooding in a way that eliminates what makes Charleston special,” Fountain said. “You need to find a way to do both. This is trying to find a way to maintain that rather than just paving the whole area over in concrete and asphalt.”
The city said they’re finishing the final designs and expect construction to start sometime in 2024.

Johns Island historical landmark to host 'Gullah Geechee Experience'
CHARLESTON, SC (WCIV) — Charleston is full of well-known history, but one hidden gem has gone mostly unnoticed.

CHARLESTON, SC (WCIV) — Charleston is full of well-known history, but one hidden gem has gone mostly unnoticed. Along a narrow stretch of highway on Johns Island stands a piece of Gullah Geechee history.
Moving Star Hall is one of a very few praise houses still standing in the United States, and it's been the center of the community for well over a century.
"The presence of prayer and praise is still profound here, and I believe the grounds have been consecrated with the spirits of the ancestors," said Pastor Kay Colleton. "So when I'm here, I'm moved. I'm moved in the spirit to do things that enhance and enrich the culture that is already left for us."
International African-American Museum Director of Faith Communities Reverend Demett Jenkins agrees.
Her grandfather was instrumental in founding Moving Star Hall. His story and those of others who have walked through the door of the hall will live on in a planned exhibit at the IAAM.
"Part of my role is to make sure that we are in partnership with faith communities around the world. And for me, as a Charlestonian, it is important that our local people have as much relationship and connection to the museum as anybody else," she said.
The museum exhibit will feature a replica of the praise house and include pictures and voice recordings from natives on their memories of Moving Star Hall.
Today, services are still held Sunday mornings with some people attending there first, before heading to their own churches. They say the sacred place provides a divine spiritual connection among those who worship at Moving Star Hall.
"It almost makes me a little teary as I think about it because it is what we're supposed to be. We're supposed to be orchestrated under that divine nature that keeps us together and that's what it does," said attorney F. Renee Gaters.
Moving Star Hall will host "Gospel Fest 2022-The Gullah Geechee Experience", Saturday June 25, at 3104 River Road on Johns Island.
The event starts at 10 a.m. and will feature Gullah storytelling and African drum performers. A gospel concert with vendors and food starts at 1 p.m. nearby at Fields Flea Market. The event is free.

When it comes to clearing out of Charleston at the crack of July for some deeply desired summer fun, it’s always something.
Year after year, that ever-shifting, wet, hot blanket has kept me me stewing in my juices somewhere around town, with farther-flung European dalliances or mountain vistas eluding me once more.
And I’ve channeled my annual churlishness here in my weekly column, indulging in a light-bodied, hopefully quaffable summer whine. I first introduced my annual staycation story in 2019, when the start of this very job scuttled a planned July trip to the Hudson Valley.
Since then, our family has been grounded every year. One year, it was the pandemic that nixed travel to New York. Other years, professional pulls for either me or my husband Scott have forestalled that post-Spoleto jones to beat it out of town.
This year is no different. The city of Charleston’s July 2 free concert and fireworks at The Joe is as rousing a reason to professionally stay put. Then, the Denmark Vesey Bicentenary that takes place at Charleston Gaillard Center from July 14-16 is a compelling second.
Along with those choice Charleston happenings, we also managed a sweet swap with my sister, taking over her Wadmalaw home while her family heads up to the Hudson Valley.
And, summoning the ghosts of staycations past, we’ll aim to go as local as possible while reveling in a few days off right in the country’s top vacation spot that we like to call home.
That starts with an alfresco Friday movie night at Wadmalaw, served up with smoked wings from Rodney Scott’s BBQ and Edmund’s Oast Cut of the Leaf: Centennial, a 5.7 percent whole leaf hopped pale ale with flavors of orange, grapefruit and lime zest.
First up is “Daughters of the Dust,” the 1991 film by Julie Dash set on a barrier island, which is now available via Tubi. Then we’ll fire up “Sherman’s March,” the wry and rambling 1985 film by Ross McElwee that is partly set in Charleston, and is now available on Amazon.
Saturday morning, we’ll head out to gather goods on Johns Island. First stop is the Sea Island Farmers Market, which is set up year-round on the Charleston Collegiate Campus on Saturdays from 9:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. On the way back, we’ll stop by HUM Grocery to pick up a pre-ordered tomato pie, pulled pork and a mac-and-cheese take-and-bake for 9-year-old Beatrice.
After a morning dip in the pool, it’s hammock time for me and Beatrice, to get going, if leisurely, on her summer reading list.
Last year, we were in the zone with it thanks to the middle grade novel “The Islanders,” which is set on Dewees Island and written by Charleston authors Mary Alice Monroe and Angela May. This summer, the two have a sequel out, the young adult “Search for Treasure” (Aladdin Books).
After a few chapters, as Beatrice’s attention turns back to the pool, I’ll likely linger a spell longer in that hammock, cracking open “Diamonds and Deadlines: A Tale of Greed, Deceit, and a Female Tycoon in the Gilded Age” by part-time Charleston resident Betsy Prioleau.
For Scott, more of a nonfiction reader, I’ll pick up “Surfing the South,” a memoir by South Carolinian author Steve Estes promising the merging of sports-centric surf and Southern turf.
Sunday, we’ll have friends round for the pool, grilling local meats from the farmers market. We’ll aim for local craft beers with a Fourth of July flavor, like Westbook Brewing Company’s colorful Blackberry Blueberry Smash fruit beer, with its blackberry and blueberry purees and sour ale. We’ll pick up some Barcoop Bevy Grapefruit Margarita Mix, a staple in our house.
We may also order an ice cream cake from Weezy’s Ice Cream and Cocktails. While it is made with Hershey’s Ice Cream, so is not local per se, it does offer a cocktail bar to enjoy when we collect it.
But to celebrate the vast array of homegrown musical talent, I’ve already started compiled a “SC Tunes” playlist featuring South Carolina releases from the past few months.
First, we’ll set the tone with “Big Dreamers,” the new album from Charleston music staple The Blue Dogs, their first studio-made work since 2004. Poolside-friendly summer fare, it’s sure to serve up nostalgia from our concerts past.
Then, for some reflective, rock-inflected time in the sun, I’ll segue into the latest from Charleston’s Susto, “Time in the Sun,” which came out in November. We’ll shift to Tourneforte’s “Swimming Lessons,” which was released in September. As the afternoon deepens, it’s time for Charleston-based Don Merckle’s “Rumor of a Ghost.”
Monday, we’ll return to Rockville’s Fourth of July parade, which last year proved to be a happy, homespun stars-and-stripes interlude, complete with a vintage firetruck, a host of golf carts, dirt bikes and other modes of transportation — with plenty of shotgun-riding dogs and a generous shower of candy for Beatrice to boot.
After repeated years of upended plans, she’s come to learn that there is always plenty of fun to be had in Charleston during July. Maybe it’s high time that I learned that, too.
