This place is friendly and is like stepping back in time . The food at the grill is delicious . It is not just a general store but a place to eat as well.

We drove by on our way to Table Rock State Park and noticed lots of cars parked around this place. While checking in at the park, we inquired about this place and were told their food is "Pretty Good". So, we stopped in mid-morning for Breakfast. Again the place was full of vehicles. Walked in and soon realized this is... More

We have driven past this place hundreds of times and never stopped although it stated best food in the area. My husband requested we stop to see it. It was a VERY pleasant surprise. The interior speaks of years gone by; an era of long ago with memorabilia hung and sitting all around. Regarding the best food in the area-... More

This is a dive. Just keep driving unless you are thirsty and you need a beverage immediately. You can keep driving and go down to Aunt Sue's.

We have some pretty "basic" restaurants in the rural south. This is a mixture of a restaurant and store. It was so hot in there the candy bars were literally melting on the shelves. After looking at the place and walking around a bit, I decided not to eat there. I bought a cool, not cold, Pepsi from an antique... More

This is truly an old time country store, but their snack bar has great burgers and fries. The menu is limited but their burgers and hot dogs are pure southern style. You must have the chili on your burgers and hotdogs. It is great.

The best burger you will ever eat in Pickens County. Harry buys fresh meat everyday to produce the best burgers. The plate will be full for a good price.

Needed a place near Table Rock St. Park for an occasional meal out. Well, there sure aren't many. We tried this place because I always prefer local eateries over chain establishments, plus it was recommended by a park employee as always looking crowded at meal time -- good sign. The breakfast was great with nice-sized servings, & our waiter was... More

Perfect lunch spot on the way to the mountains. Just breakfast and lunch but delicious and reasonable. Sit at the counter and chat with the nice family that runs the place.
