Eating out in Greenville, South Carolina

I’m currently on the road in Greenville, South Carolina, which is a really lovely town from what I’ve seen so far. Greenville also has a number of culinary oddities I haven’t seen on menus in other parts of the country. Last night I ate at Sushi Murasaki, which among other more standard rolls also features the USC roll, which featured fried chicken as a primary component; not to be confused with another roll with tempura chicken. Today for lunch I tried fried corn-on-the-cob at Sticky Fingers, which also had some of the best chicken wings I’ve had outside of Beijing, China. And tonight it was Tako Sushi, which is exactly what it sounds like phonetically, a sushi and Mexican restaurant. Tomorrow, who knows what culinary adventures will present themselves. If you happen to be familiar with restaurants in Greenville, feel free to offer suggestions.


  1. you need to hightail it up here to Charlotte and taste some real food!
    I’ll be glad to be your guide.

  2. Have shrimp and grits while you are in South Carolina. Most restaurants have their own version of this great dish.

  3. Unfortunately I’m leaving on Friday. The Pig on the Ridge sounds awesome!
    I’m in Greenville for a conference gathering of an online group I’m a member of.

  4. You need to try Backstreet Cafe and a must is their sweet potato pie. It is on Augusta Rd. about 3 block from main street. The chicken salad fruit plate is wonderful, too. Hope you enjoy your visit and come back often.
