Hi Folks,

We're coming to your pretty town soon and wondered if you would share your top "do-not-miss" places to eat.

Our special interests are any kind of ethnic food...fusion or not...

Many thanks!

I should not forget to recommend Myles Pizza Pub, Trio Brick Oven Restaurant, and Bocca Pure Italian, as well. There really are far too many to mention.

I saw Skyliner's list and thought.. Well, hell.. What's there to add? So.. This isn't much.

Saskatoon is my favorite place.. It's something rather unique that you can't get anywhere else. Wild Game restaurant. Ostrich, Buffalo and Emu are generally always on the menu. They grow lots of their own veggies and herbs.



If you wind up down around Laurens.. there's a relatively new place called Rootimentary that is really quite good. expensive as crap, but.. Good.

The Korean BBQ on Skyliner's list.. It's.. Good for what it is.. But.. I might recommend Bulgogi Korean Grill.. There used to be an even better one out on Woodruff Rd that has closed.. Too many of the Korean restaurants around here focus on Bulgogi.. I keep telling people, someone ought to open a place like I ran into in Santa Monica, CA called "Mom and Bop's".. The Korean around here is.. Mainly Bulgogi.

I have heard from friends who love Chef JK Korean BBQ Master on Haywood Road. I have not tried it yet.

Two additional German places I recommend are Unterhausen The Castle Cellar Pub and Hans & Franz Biergarten.

For regional/American BBQ, I recommend Smoky Dreams (for brisket, ribs, or chopped chicken) and Henry's Smokehouse (for pork, ribs, or turkey).

For Coffee I recommend Methodical (multiple options, each is good)

For local food on the trail, Swamp Rabbit Cafe and Grocery is great.

Also, I misspelled Fork and Plough earlier.

They take special orders if you want something other than bulgogi. I have eaten there with a fairly large group (>12) when only a few ordered bulgogi.

Yeah.. Henry's is top of the mark for BBQ in my eyes. But.. Having said that, i'm not a huge fan of Brisket and other beef BBQ, so.. That's probably why.

There's a BBQ place here on Butler Rd.. Wholy Smoke.. They're a texas style.. And I thought they were quite good as well.. The sides were excellent, at least.

I haven't tried the Chef JK place yet.. I think the name of the place that used to be on Woodruff was Kimchee, perhaps? It was excellent. Nice variety of Korean food. My stepmother, who is Korean, liked that place best of all. Think they closed and opened the Korean market down on East Butler.

Wow! I'm very impressed with the possibilities that are in Greenville. I'm in Coastal NC and our seafood is quite wonderful, but we miss the ethnic variety we had when we lived in SF.

Soooo...really looking forward to a culinary journey through Greenville...hardly know where to start! Maybe with A's and work our way down?

All the Asian, Greek, Korean, Persian, Belgian, Georgian possibilities are exciting. Any good Indian places??! I like bbq Texas style quite a bit. The vinegar based sauces found in Eastern NC take some getting used to...

You all have been wonderfully helpful. I could check out Yelp and Trip Advisor, but it's better to hear from those who live in the area and have personal favorites as eateries come and go...

I think you can find smoked Texas Style BBQ at Lewis BBQ. I have a friend from Texas who loves it.

We love Portofino's Italian on Haywood Road too. Been eating there for years.

Saffron Indian Restaurant is the one I'm most familiar with. Enjoyed their lunch buffett before.
