Dundees Outback (now Baileys), wow never would have remembered that one! Ditto for the fried pickles and the first in Greenville to offer alligator.

OK, anybody remember Chicago Brew Pub on Woodruff (now Fatz)? Owned by the Peter Davids folks. Had great food and beer but did not serve any domestic which I didn't mind, but might have been a little ahead of its time for a 1994 Greenville.

Midoris hibachi/sushi was right behind it (now Lieus). Had a full service sushi bar, lazy river and all. Kanpais first competitor for hibachi and was probably Greenville's second or third sushi establishment. Might have also been a little bit ahead of a maturing Greenville.

Speaking of beer, we really enjoyed Big River which took over the old Spaghetti Warehouse building on Broad (now Northhampton Wines). Ah the memories, this is a great thread.

The old steakhouse in the TJ Maxx plaza off Haywood road with the 50 foot 'Long Horns' signage. I believe they were made to remove it at the request of the city.

Morrison's had the best creamed corn...Do you remember S & S when it was inside Haywood Mall inside the entrance between (what's now) Macy's and Sears and the line went around the place behind the wall and then you could go to the dining area on the right or go up to the upper (one step up) dining level on the left...And Piccadilly in Spartanburg used to be inside Westgate Mall at the back side (coming from the front entrance now) and there were only 2 stores on both sides and then the mall ended and Piccadilly...And of course, there was just what you were looking for at Upton's when they had the crazy man on the commercial that said "Spot a Dot and Save a lot"...Also, the TV show America's Funniest People when Dave Coulier and Arlene Sorkin hosted it came to Westgate to audition people to be on the show...oh yes, and the girl from the TV show My Two Dads (Stacy) came to Upton's and signed autographs...and when all of the cast from the way back cast of Days of Our Lives who are slowly reappearing on the current episodes used to come for the celebrity softball game to benefit Taylors Falcons and the youth association...Ok my memory is tapped out now...thankfully


I definitely remember S&S ! That was before Morrisons lol

The Sunday stop for everybody

Can't remember the name? At Stone Ave. and Laurens Rd. There was a sandwich and soup shop there that was real good and then it was a comedy club later on I believe?? Anybody can help with my parttime memory.

Noodles, it was a huge Kash & Karry. Warehouse type. Yep I remember that.
Sears- when you walked in & they had a variety of warm nuts in the carousel.
Krispy Kreme being Downtown.
I actually worked at McAlister square.
BoNats on Poinsett Hwy for fresh meat.
Stone Manufacturing
When Downtown was nothing more than the Army Navy store

When I lived off of Woodruff Rd & there was a Winn Dixie & a United Carolina Bank! Nothing else but farmland. Then came The Merovan Ctr, the cemetery & it's been growing ever since!

Pat, Krispy Kreme came to Greenville in 1947 and they were on Cleveland St. across from Sirrine Stadium. They moved to Pendleton St. several years later in the first block on the left they stayed there about a year and changed the front of the store to the back and the back to the front. They were in the same store but the move from the front to the back changed the address to Augusta St. Their final move,so far, was to N. Pleasantburg Dr. near the downtown airport entrance. They did however open a second store here a few weeks ago on Woodruff Rd. I think I am misreading your part about the Army-Navy
Store and downtown.
