Cartwright Food Hall (Greer, SC)

The new food court (a.k.a. artisanal lifestyle eatery) is officially open in Greer, SC. Chris and I checked it out on opening weekend and then went back two weeks later with my sisters to try more options. Both times we went the owners were there making the rounds and greeting customers which was a nice…

Saskatoon Steaks, Fish and Wild Game

After years of talking about it, we finally made it to Saskatoon for Chris’s birthday. The name says it all. Think hunting lodge with lofty ceilings and wood as far as the eye can see. There was even a wooden grizzly bear at the entrance and a fireplace in the foyer. This place is the…

Papi’s Tacos

After checking out this small restaurant, I now think of the Saturday Night Live sketch with Chris Farley shouting about “living in a van down by the river” when it comes to mind but I digress this is a food blog. I heard of Papi’s a few years ago when it was mentioned in an…

Burgers and Bakery (Spartanburg, SC)

Chris was chomping at the bit to try out Burgers & Bakery. He heard about it from a co-worker and thought it sounded like our kind of place. One Saturday, we started off towards Spartanburg. The restaurant is located very close to the Spartanburg city limits.  If you aren’t looking for the turn, you’ll miss…

The Lazy Goat

Now that we are in our eighth year of marriage, we are running out of new spots to try for major holidays. There is a good bit of turnover in the #yeahTHATgreeenville restaurant scene so there are always new places to try but not places on the anniversary/birthday/Valentine’s Day level. In 2022, Valentine’s Day was…

CAMP (Downtown Greenville)

For my birthday this summer, I wanted to try a new eatery in the Camperdown development in the heart of downtown Greenville. My husband and I had been watching the construction for the past couple of years. I read about CAMP, a modern American eatery, in a GVL Today newsletter. Its claim to fame is…

Warehouse at Vaughns (Simpsonville, SC)

Mall food courts are dying out but the food hall concept is on the rise. There are several new developments in the works in the Upstate. Gather GVL in downtown Greenville is already a popular spot. Both Easley and Greer have food halls, The Silos and Cartwright Food Hall, coming soon.

Rocky’s Hot Chicken

This popular spot opened in Greenville, South Carolina, within the last year or so. When it first opened the lines were incredibly long and out of the building. One Friday, we decided we had plenty of time to wait so we made our way to Rocky’s. It has a decent-sized parking lot across the street…

Legends on the Lake

As is our custom, we jumped in the car and headed to the mountains for a weekend ride. Chris is always scanning the web for the best places to go. I had no idea where we were headed. We ended up at a resort in North Carolina near Lake Lure. I wasn’t sure what to…
