Loved this fun upstairs restaurant overlooking Main St in Downtown Greenville close to Falls Park. They utilized the historic building in the décor. Fantastic food. If you like hot sauce Bert's Bangin' Sauce is a must try. It's made fresh by the owners and is fantastic.

Any place that offers sweet potato fries is a place to note, in my book. Some of the most delicious burgers you've ever had, Mexican, salads, the works. It's a hole in the wall sort of place and it does get busy sometimes, but definitely check it out.

The atmosphere is a little loud for my taste.....it's basically a very loud bar crowded with the under 30 group......that is fine, just not for me. If you're going with a group, out for a couple of beers and a decent meal, it's great. If you wanted something a little more refined or special, it's not for you. I went... More

I went here with my boyfriend over the holidays. Since he's born and raised in Greenville this was the first place he had to stop by when we were in town. It didn't disappoint. Great and friendly service staff, awesome music and ambiance, delicious food. Can't wait to go back!!

We went there after dinner for drinks and live music. That night music was excellent. We danced and drank. It is a fun casual place with no cover at least that night. We will be back. Fun place to people watch as well.

We go the one on Laurens Rd up towards Mauldin. It is a fun place. We recently did trivia and had a blast! Food is amazing. Outside patio is fun! The Salsa sampler is worthwhile I also enjoy the jerk chicken sandwich

Love this place, it's a little cramped, but the food is always great. Great view if you get a seat by the window. Highly recommend their "Mom's" Cream Cheese Chicken Enchilada and Salsa Sampler, plate. The Shrimp and Grits are also amazing. I was so glad they opened up a location in Mauldin also.

Chicora Alley is not right on the street, but up the stairs, so harder to find, but worth the search. The food is unique, tasty and great portions for the price. The atmosphere is fun. We like to sit where we can see out the front window onto the street. Service is a little slow and a bit haphazard at... More

We decided to try Chicora Alley in Greenville based on TripAdvisor reviews and its proximity to downtown activities. I guess underwhelming is the best description we can give it. Our server was pleasant, but brought me regular fries when I ordered sweet potato fries. She brought those out later for me. I had the brisket sandwich, which seemed like pulled... More
