Would have liked to have seen that Dickinson Ave area, maybe under the Dickinson Lofts mixed use or even somewhere on Evans Street. But I guess this will do well there on Jarvis Street. Not exactly easy to get to for the vast majority of the city, but will be a decent option for the students in the area.

Humm...would have been more excited about this if it had actually been in the core of Uptown, not buried in the neighborhood to be forgotten about by all except students and folks in the neighborhood. Oh well, best of luck with the new location.

Agreed. This will have virtually no draw to anyone but students.

First, Angus is among my favorite burger places in the world and therefore any expansion is welcomed by me. Second, I wonder when considering this location, were they thinking of Jack Browns. I can’t say this objectively, but I consider Angus to be far superior to Jack Browns but on the opposing hand many people here in Greenville have never even heard of Angus. That said, I do hope this second location does well. I’ve been urging them to create a second location for a while, and in-fact, open a few locations. Now hopefully they follow up on my idea for every 10 burgers, you get one free.

Your post is the first I ever heard of Jack Browns. I heard of Angus a long time ago but never think of them when I go out to eat. Some of these businesses really need to advertise some.

edit: I drive down Dickinson all the time and never noticed Jack Browns. It's not on GSV either. When did it open?

Yeah, Jack Browns was supposed to be a pretty big deal here in town, but it never looks too busy to me. It seems like Bad Daddy’s has remained, by far, the most popular burger joint but Angus is superior to them if you ask me. I would suggest you stop in Jack Browns and form your own opinion. By no means is it horrible, but the prices are eh, the service was blah, and the burgers are decent.

The Dickinson corridor NEEDS Jack Browns to make it and survive.

I went to Jack Browns the other night. There was 30 minute wait. I think they are doing just fine and the food was outstanding.

I have heard good if not great things from folks I know in town and their social media presence (on Instagram at least) is very active and entertaining.
