We like Velo Fellow as well. They have good food and a nice atmosphere.

Okay, not a comment on food in Greenville but on the SC BBQ Trail Map. My hubby and I will be moving to Greenville soon too, so I can't speak for really any good restaurants there!
I do have to say that yes, the SC BBQ Trail Map unfortunately has chains like Sticky Fingers...but there are some gems on there worth trying!
Also, there are a lot of BBQ joints named the same thing in the state, but they aren't the same. We have a Duke's BBQ in Aiken and I know there is also one in Orangeburg but they aren't ran by the same people. Both are good though.

Top favorite BBQ joint that I've been too in recent years is (and consider that I am a 'midlander' right now) True's BBQ in Columbia. The absolute BEST BEST BEST hash I've ever had in my entire life! Our regular joint that is down the road from us is Duke's in Aiken, and I love them, but they have nothing on this place. It is a teeny restaurant and they smoke their meat on a smoker right out front, in the parking lot.

My husband and I have been trying a different BBQ joint 1-2x a month off of the map, within a reasonable driving distance. I'm excited to see what the upstate has to offer once we move, I've heard some of the best BBQ in the state comes from the upstate!

For BBQ, I like Bucky's a lot (we previously lived in same neighborhood as the owner). My husband's favorite by far was Charlie's at the corner of Pelham and Hwy 14.

Smoke On The Water is also excellent. It's a bit more upscale than your typical "hole in the wall" BBQ joint.

Sticky Fingers doesn't seem to get much respect on C-D, and even though it is a chain, it's a regional chain with its roots in SC. I really don't think it's all that bad. Having said that, it's not where I would go first.

I enjoyed City Range and Copper River on Haywood when I was in Greenville; neither is a BBQ place, though, and I don't know that I'd call them "hole in the wall". City Range is the more upscale of the two, I'd say -- Copper River's more on the Applebee's/TGI Friday's portion of the scale.

We liked both, too, when we lived in Greenville.
