After a disappointing breakfast at Waffle House, we were looking for something more like the diners we have in CT. Someone suggested Stax, and we were not disappointed! I had a great Greek omelet, with fresh spinach, feta, and tomatoes that was wonderful. And unlike many places in the South, you can actually get homefries, as well as hashbrowns. This... More

I've eaten at Staxs Original numerous times for lunch and dinner. It's your typical diner, nothing fancy. I don't think it's ever been updated but the food and service is usually good. On this visit, I had a slice of roasted chicken, fried squash and cornbread. It was ok. My family had fried chicken, fries, mac and cheese, green beans,... More

Go where the gray heads eat bc they know what tastes good and doesn't cost a pile. Burgers are great! Service was good. Mac n cheese was awesome. Mom liked the apple cobbler. Local flair all over the place adds character and personality. Supports local college decor. It's worth the stop.

If you want to experience a classic southern eatery you MUST visit Stax! Biscuits, gravy and southern staples are offered in a warm friendly neighborhood restaurant. My favorite breakfast in Greenville!

First time here. I can't believe we have missed this. I had the greek chicken with squash casserole and butter beans with corn bread. Others in my party had the roast beef and country fried chicken with gravy. Good variety of meats, vegetables, sandwiches and salads to select from. Service is excellent and food came out quickly. Nice spacious seating... More

We walked in and chose a booth in the area of the counters. We were immediately greeted but was told we cannot have breakfast as it is past 11AM. We chose hot sandwiches, a HB and a Gyro. While our lunch requests were being prepared the baseball team of Furman University walked in. We were immediately forgotten as all focus... More

We left our Marriott and headed to Staxx Omega. The crowds were waiting outside, so, we were heading to FURMAN and we would be going right past Staxx Original. The place was packed, but we were seated very quickly. Prompt service, hot breakfast and quality was really good. When in the FURMAN area, stop by this Staxx location. We WILL... More
