Always love stopping here. Food is simple and priced right. Decor takes you back to the past of Greenville and local areas with knick knacks from old sailing ships to a Poinsett Hotel sign. Burgers and fries are the staples along with the Orangeade and the usual soda shop syrups. Just feels comfortable here. Our two favorites like many have... More

Read in Southern Living about the best hamburgers around the South. It said Northgate soda shop for SC. Never heard of it, so we went. Cute hole in the wall. Great service. Typical diner menu with lots of nostalgia around of old Greenville. Lemonade was not only fresh squeezed but made to order. Pimento cheese hamburger was good... not sure... More

When we parked outside , my wife was dubious about the place but as we had heard good things we went in to check it out for breakfast. It is great ! Old style decorations with antique shop type atmosphere and a real old style lunch counter (plenty of table seating too). Staff are super friendly and service is prompt.... More

Definitely in the top 5 burgers I've ever had. The place is like a snapshot back in time. Plus they have old fashioned sodas and karaoke on the weekends!
