Pimento Cheese... (Updated)

finally gets some respect.

For years, pimento cheese was the Rodney Dangerfield of cheeses in most of America. However, in Columbia, pimento cheese is king of the cheeses. Glad to see that it's finally getting some nationwide respect.

P.S. If you want a serious pimento cheeseburger, go to The Kingsman in Cayce (yes, it's across the river) and order their famous pimento cheeseburger. It will change your life.
UPDATE: After being scooped by Permanent Press with the above post on 7/12, The State runs their own Pimento Cheese "Gets Respect" article. Clearly, when you want to hear it first, you come to PP.

  1. I take exception to the the characterization of pimento cheese as "tacky." Velveeta is tacky. Spam is tacky. Moon pies, though delicious, are tacky when served at a party. Just because some northern folks decided they don't like it because they don't know what a pimento is does not make pimento cheese tacky.

  2. If you're in Northeast Columbia, try the Pimento cheeseburger at Desserts&More (next to Publix on hard scrabble). Almost as good as Rockaways!
