Restaurants in Graniteville, SC

North of Aiken, just off the road to Augusta, Graniteville is an old textile town with a variety of good, right-priced restaurants. The oldest, since 1951, is a tiny diner called Blue Top Grill, where the hand-pattied burgers are beautifully dressed and artfully bunned, and where turkey for sandwiches is actually carved from a roasted breast, not from a turkey loaf. Among the many vegetable choices, Blue Top has a most interesting fusion dish called collard kraut, a brilliant mix of tart and tangy — all the better when it’s topped with crumbled cornbread. Exemplary soul-food seafood in a humble setting has made Bush’s a locals’ favorite; but keep your eyes open if you are searching for it. The sign outside the plain little building is no bigger than a license plate. There is Tex-Mex food at El Camaron Feliz, where English is a second language; and there are two outposts of authentic Jamaican fare: Choices and Jamrock Caribana.
