Restaurants in Landrum, SC

Near the border of North Carolina, Landrum has a lovely downtown with plenty of shopping, but it mainly is a destination or way station for people who engage in outdoor sports. Horse people are especially drawn to it for its world-class Equestrain center as well as for the annual Blockhouse Steeplechase. A highlight for Roadfooders is Boots’ & Sonny’s, a drive-in where meaty, creamy, no-bean chili makes the most of hot dogs, hamburgers, fried bologna sandwiches, and French fries. Out at Southside Smokehouse, traditional smoke-cooked meats are given an inventive Cajun accent. And at Harvest House, near the renowned Tack House tack store, familiar regional dishes get creative makeovers: fried green tomatoes come stacked in a tower, bathed in pimento cheese and a balsamic drizzle; ham gets a cola glaze. A short drive south leads to the Junction of Gowensville, a crossroads cafe known for its rugged-crusted fried chicken. Over the border, just beyond Tryon on the banks of the Pacolet River, is the Caro-Mi Dining Room, a postcard-perfect restaurant famous for its old-time Dixie meals.
