With all the changes happening in Greenville, I'm glad that Chicora Alley is still around. It's a casual place that can be a bit noisy, but they offer quick and friendly service, fair prices and uniquely good food. The vegan and veggie burritos are excellent and come with salad, beans, rice & guacamole. If you have any issues with the... More

Chicoras Alley has a tucked away feel that makes it the perfect combination of a hidden find and a wonderful treat. Not to mention the fact that the food is absolutly amazing both in taste and appearance. Added bonuses for being both tattoo and peircing friendly to their staff. It feels extremly modern and I love the fact that they... More

This is a quaint restaurant located on the second floor just off South Main Street near Falls Park. It is nicely decorated and staff is fast and friendly. I ordered a chicken enchilada special of the day. The serving size was abundant and the food was hot and delicious. They have an extensive menu including American fare so there is... More

Chicora Alley is a great restaurant in the Greenville area. Fresh salsa, great burritos, and my favorite the collards and brisket quesadilla. Trust me it's amazing.

I'm a local, and a lot of the locals love to meet up at this place. It does have a neat atmosphere, but I've never thought the food is overwhelmingly fabulous. It must just be me, though, because a lot of my friends love it here.

Loved this fun upstairs restaurant overlooking Main St in Downtown Greenville close to Falls Park. They utilized the historic building in the décor. Fantastic food. If you like hot sauce Bert's Bangin' Sauce is a must try. It's made fresh by the owners and is fantastic.

Any place that offers sweet potato fries is a place to note, in my book. Some of the most delicious burgers you've ever had, Mexican, salads, the works. It's a hole in the wall sort of place and it does get busy sometimes, but definitely check it out.

The atmosphere is a little loud for my taste.....it's basically a very loud bar crowded with the under 30 group......that is fine, just not for me. If you're going with a group, out for a couple of beers and a decent meal, it's great. If you wanted something a little more refined or special, it's not for you. I went... More

I went here with my boyfriend over the holidays. Since he's born and raised in Greenville this was the first place he had to stop by when we were in town. It didn't disappoint. Great and friendly service staff, awesome music and ambiance, delicious food. Can't wait to go back!!
