Ice Cream Station

Reviewed By Linda B - Greensboro, North Carolina

We just had to stop here on our way back to Greenville after spending a nice afternoon at a local winery. I had heard they had Dole Whips. My daughter and I love them! We got the lemon and raspberry swirl and it was so good. We were just a bit disappointed that they did not have pineapple as it brings our memories to Disney World back. Maybe another time. Prices and service are very good.

Cucina 100

Reviewed By imdarkside - Clemson, South Carolina

In the heart of vibrant downtown Fountain Inn this Italian restaurant has it all. Nice selection of craft beers, wines, etc... at the bar in the back. Great food. This is a place for everyone, family, young, old. We got the lasagna which was prepared in single servings not a portion out of a big pan in the kitchen like some large chains. Very well prepared. Plate was $15 with bread and salad which were both tasty also. Front section is tables with open kitchen and wood fire pizza. Tuesday is $9 pizza night. Wait was about 30 minutes on a very busy Saturday night. With horse drawn carriages in town and lots of activities the wait in town was quick. Will return again.

Sweet Catherine's

Reviewed By Hope2337 - Greenville, South Carolina

Sweet Catherine's is known for its pimento cheese, chicken salad, strawberry cake, and many other Southern dishes. My very favorite is the crab cake sandwich with lots of tasty crab meat on a croissant with sides of vinegar dressed cole slaw and fruit..

Mad Cuban Cafe

Reviewed By Dan D - Overland Park, Kansas

True cuban diner - with diner meaning all that implies. You get true cuban food here, but don't expect a restaurant experience. They have a few tables, but this is meant as an order and grabout experience.

The food is fantastic, and my wife tells me it is "indeed cuban" and she would know. Great food, diner experience, and a grab and go feeling.

Our family went there over the Christmas holidays going on the rating as the best in the upstate and after our visit I can understand why. The food was great.

Coach House Restaurant

Reviewed By Ralph R - Farmington, Michigan, United States

Ok not even close to the best cornbread in the south! Big portions at low cost. I tried the fried chicken livers with sides of pinto beans and pickled beets. Sides were small but had more livers than I could eat for about $10. Great service. No bar.

Buckys Bar-B-Q

Reviewed By BarryM59 - Glen Carbon

A rustic but friendly environmemet and staff. I had the ribs, cucumber salad, and sweet potato crunch. All very good and reasonaby priced. I wish I stayed another night for the all-u-can eat ribs on Friday. I brought home a side order of sweet potato crunch and ate it cold the next day. I think it may taste better cold.

El Patron

Reviewed By Becky B

This place has become one of my favorite lunch spots. They have several varieties of salsa on their bar. I highly recommend the chicken fajita nachos. It's loaded with large pieces of chicken and the vegetables always seem to be fresh. It's such a huge portion I have lunch for two days. Everything else we have had has been really good as well. And they also have a very nice bar.

We've been coming to see Rosie for 8 years and we love El Tejano's (Rosie's) Restaurant. The food is excellent, always great service and the restaurant is very clean. Thank you Rosie for always being so friendly and having such a great restaurant where we can enjoy the food.
