Taste Buds – Going Back in Time

“Being in Port Royal Plaza’s Street Meet American Take Out & Tavern must be something like finding yourself in the middle of an MGM 1930s movie set.”


Fusion Fabulous

 “Street Meet felt like home. Only someone else was cooking and doing the dishes. It’s tavern meets sports bar meets hot dog vendor. Small, friendly and casual.”



“I wanted to create an environment reminiscent of a turn-of-the-century tavern, post-Prohibition.”


Kent State Alumni Association

“Carey Basciano, Hilton Head, S.C., is the owner and creator of Street Meet American Take Out and Tavern, with the help of four other Kent State alumni. Previously, Basciano managed a restaurant on Hilton Head Island for 12 years.


Read All About It

“”I’ve always wanted to do street food,” said Basciano. Those journals evolved into a menu of “Sidewalk Sandwiches from America’s Favorite Street Corners” when Basciano opened Street Meet three years ago with his wife, Shelby, sister, Nicole, and college roommate Eric Strauss.”


Sticky Saturday

Street Meet will be making Cajun chicken alfredo wings topped with onion rings and Chicken & Waffles wings at Hilton Head Island’s Wingfest.


Taken It to the Street

“Street Meet may sound like a bizarre name for a restaurant, but owner Carey Basciano says it’s the off-beat name that intrigues Hilton Head, S.C. tourists and regulars –  prompting them to stop in.”


Wedding Soup

“Getting the whole family to agree on a place to eat, especially when kids are involved, isn’t always easy. Fortunately, Hilton Head’s Street Meet, reminiscent of 1930s era taverns and street vendors, offers gourmet hot dogs, burgers with truly one-of-a-kind toppings, unique sandwiches, tasty pasta dishes and homemade soups.”

 What Flavor is Happiness? Street Meet Has the Recipe
