Best Down Home Southern Food in Greenville

I'm a pseudo-Yankee who misses Southern food badly!

My sons and I will be visiting Greenville this weekend (actually will be in Fair Play but coming to Greenville and also the Clemson area for college tours) and would LOVE to have some down home Southern eats.

Not looking for fancified or upscale, just that really good, down home, like Grandma makes it Southern food.

Please pass along some suggesttions for us!

Hi, when you are in Clemson I highly recommend PAWS Diner. Super cheap and super delicious. Good solid people who own and run the restaurant.

Greenville has a lot of what we call "Meat and 3" restaurants. I can't really say that I love any of them. I'll say that we tend to gravitate to Stax Originial when we visit any of these types of restaurants in Greenville. It all depends on what you order at each restaurant. I definitely recommend the mac and cheese and pineapple casserole if you go to Stax.

A short drive out of your way to Pickens is a restaurant called Gatehouse Restaurant. Like PAWS in Clemson, I highly recommend.

Elevated southern food that happens to be my favorite restaurant is Soby's. It's located downtown Greenville. It's gonna cost you $20-$25 per dish though. Probably gonna have a difficult time finding a table over Valentines weekend.

Don't know about Greenville proper but if you are near Spartanburg, Wades is worth a stop.
