    Columbia’s First Poke Restaurant Now Open
    Looking for a different, quick, and delicious place to eat? Poke Bros. opened Saturday, April 1st in Five Points and is already receiving exceptional reviews! Poke is a popular style of Hawaiian food, and it includes sushi chopped and dressed! This eatery is very fast and casual; similar to a place such as Chipotle or Moes. For example, like these places, Poke is a fast-casual counter restaurant and you pick your base, protein, veggies, dressings, etc. There are pre-picked options as well if you are unsure where to begin with all the choices. This restaurant, in Columbia, is the first of its franchise which began in Columbus, Ohio. Poke is located at 2009 Greene Street, suite 102 and is open from 10:45AM to 10:00PM
