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…

The Dive on Augusta Street

This eatery is located next to Two Rooms, a home decor shop I occasionally like to peruse on the weekends. We were starving so we decided to take a chance since it was close. It lives up to its characterization as a dive. The interior is fairly small though there are a few full-size wooden…

Rick Erwin’s Nantucket

It was Valentine’s Day and Chris had made reservations at the last Rick Erwin’s restaurant we had not tried. I loved Rick Erwin’s Level 10 in Spartanburg. Anyway, back to Nantucket…The upscale seafood restaurant is located on the first floor of a hotel overlooking the area where a temporary ice skating rink is set up…

Eating Our Way Through Greenville: White Duck Taco

Taco shops are popping up all over Greenville. Over the holidays, my sisters were visiting from Arizona and brought us a few tacos from this spot. We immediately added it to our “must try” list. White Duck Taco Shop has two locations-one in Hampton Station and one near Haywood Mall. We decided to check out…

It’s Valentine’s Day weekend and you are just now trying to find someplace to eat. Since eating is kind of our thing, here are a few recommendations. Every couple is different so think about whether you’re more of a table cloth person or a portion size person. Do you favor ambiance or good food? You…

Husk: BBQ

The Story It was a rainy, cold New Year’s Day and the family was out of town. Obviously, I wasn’t cooking anything (holiday = break) so Chris suggested we check out Husk: Smokin BBQ. It was previously a regular Husk eatery based off of the original Husk venture in Charleston, South Carolina. We’ve had great…

Eating Our Way Through Greenville: Fork and Plough

This is another of those relatively new, farm to table spots that keep popping up around Greenville. They describe themselves as an “all-in-one restaurant, grocery store, and butcher shop.” I heard good reviews from colleagues who hosted a lunch there so Chris and I decided to check it out one Saturday while we were out…

Myles Pizza Pub

The Story This new to Greenville but four decades old pizzeria was highly recommended by my brother. It was covered a few times in The Greenville News so we added it to our list of eateries to check out. It’s located next to Eastlan Baptist Church (now Eastlan Newspring) near Greenville Tech. Although the space…

Restaurant 17 at Hotel Domestique

The Story I discovered this spot after following the Urban Petals (Greer, SC) Instagram account. Anna Stouffer, the lifestyle boutique owner and floral designer, has provided floral installations and arrangements for upscale weddings at Hotel Domestique. After seeing multiple weddings she designed at the hotel, I discovered it was located in nearby Travelers Rest. It…
