Greer BBQ and Fine Foods

602 N. Main St., Greer, SC - (864) 879-8466
Posted By Michael Stern on 4/2/2002 4:29:00 AM
From the road this small café doesn’t look all that interesting. Even the interior is rather plastic, reminiscent of a fast-food franchise. But Greer BBQ And Fine Foods is WAY better than it looks – a singular restaurant with distinctive southern food. You can smell its goodness early in the morning when slabs of country ham are sizzled to go with eggs or to be sandwiched inside wonderful biscuits. Biscuits are a specialty of the house – wide and golden-topped, with fluffy insides so luscious that your fingers glisten with you tear off a piece. They are available plain, buttered, or wrapped around a variety of breakfast items from eggs and sausage to fried balogna. Those customers in need of big-time calories will want the Barnyard Gravy Biscuit, which is smothered with gravy and accompanied by an egg and bacon.

Fine as breakfast is, don’t feel bad if you arrive at lunchtime. The biscuits are still available, as is some fine barbecue – pork, of course; hickory-smoked, naturally – on a sandwich or plate with French fries and/or onion rings. Our goal is to one day stop by Greer at lunch for a bacon-chili cheeseburger (which looks spectacular), and maybe even ask if they’ll serve it on a hot biscuit …

Spelled bloney on the menu board, the baloney has a nice outside crust and provides plenty of piggy flavor.  Perfect for one of the excellent biscuits here.

Biscuits this good are simply unknown outside the south.  And that ham inside is true country ham -- unspeakably delicious!

This is a Southern bbq parlor, so expect to see plenty of porcine decor.

Many of the south's best pork restaurants advertise their goodness by showing pictures of happy pigs or, in this case, the tastiest part of the pig.
