Restaurants in Greenville, SC

The South Carolina Upcountry boom town of Greenville is an eater’s delight of high-end restaurants, franchised food both high and low, and a handful of one-of-a-kind Roadfood treasures. Our best bets for a true taste of the city include BBQ pork that is so succulent that sauce is superfluous, luxurious shrimp & grits, a dish called Cincinnati steak (which actually is fried bologna topped with chili, cheese, and onions), and powerhouse country ham in a place aptly named Tommy’s Country Ham House. Dixie mayonnaise aficionados know Greenville as the home of Duke’s, which is creamy, slightly tangy, and not as sweet as Kraft or Hellman’s. Duke’s has its own company eatery, where sandwiches made with mayo-based salads are presented ready-wrapped in cellophane. They’re modest sandwiches, but HPO is an intriguing old-time taste: ham, pepper, and onion. Another vintage combo is salad made of cream cheese, pineapple, and pecans.
