Columbia County’s menu of dining options is growing.

Peter Patel and brother A.J. Patel, have opened their second Which Wich sandwich location in Mullins Crossing in Evans.

The restaurant opened Aug. 25 in the former Great Wraps location. The Patels also own the Which Wich on Wheeler Road.

The restaurant is known for its customizable sandwiches and creative ordering system. Patrons note their sandwich options on an ordering bag. “I think a lot of people love it,” Peter Patel said. “The biggest thing is the number of options that we offer.”

Patel said his sandwich shop offers 51 varieties of sandwiches, all of which can be prepared on white or wheat bread, a lettuce wrap or in a bowl. They can be customized using traditional toppings and condiments as well as options such as walnuts, cranberries and a variety of sauces.

The 30-seat restaurant is open 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

Another new restaurant, PDQ, opened Sept. 7 on Washington Road at Belair Road. The 4,300-square-foot restaurant serves chicken fingers, sandwiches, salads and milkshakes.

Operations manager John Cox reused stones from the former Evans School teacher’s cottage, which was later the Strictly Country gift shop. The building was torn down to make way for the restaurant.

The stones were used for the sign base and an arch and pillar on the property. Historic photos of the Evans area are framed in the restaurant’s sunroom.

“We did the best we could,” Cox said of preserving the site’s history. “I’m pretty proud of it.”

The restaurant is open 10 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. daily.

An Italian eatery also is on the way in Martinez.

Edward Mendoza is renovating the former Robolli’s Italian Bar & Grill space on Fury’s Ferry Road into his second area restaurant, Cucina 503.

Mendoza, who also runs Kitchen 1454 on Walton Way and food truck, said his plans are to include a full bar and private and public dining rooms in the 3,600-square-foot space.

He hopes to open the restaurant by Thanksgiving.
