There are certain cities that are world renowned for certain foods. You go to New York and Naples for pizza, New Orleans for jambalaya, Paris for croissants, and Texas for brisket. Other cities don’t have the same singular recognition, but are worth making a trip to for the food alone all the same. Greenville is the perfect example of the latter.
This little city on the Reedy River has been gaining prominence in recent years as a day trip or weekend getaway destination for people in Atlanta, Charlotte, Columbia, Knoxville, and other big Southern hubs. Prized for scenic views over flowing waters, picturesque bridges and nature trails, and a pristine, charmingly walkable downtown, there are a lot of things that make Greenville a desirable place to go. But perhaps most of all is the food and the drinks.
These are some of the can’t-miss signature snacks, sweets, and sips you’ll be hard-pressed to find outside of Greenville — and that will draw you back again and again.
