“Diamond in the Rough”

Pumpkintown General Store
Ranked #3 of 42 Restaurants in Pickens
Restaurant details
Reviewed March 9, 2017

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- they aren't kidding. We have been in this area for 3 years now and just now found THE hamburger to take a drive for.
By the way: The staff was friendly and Mr. Bill, the new proprietor of just 6 weeks, personally walks around talking to and serving the customers. He is one of the reasons to stop in and say Hey.

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 cooler and left. I cannot comment on the prepared food and doubt that I will be sampling it anytime soon.

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.
