I can't say enough good things about this place! The staff is friendly and attentive. The food is always great, no matter what the daily menu is. The sweet tea is amazing! I have only been for lunch and any time I am in town I make it a point to stop by. Give it a try, you will not... More

The fried chicken is great here. The okra was good & so were the green beans. It was a very nice experience with lots of soul food.

Food is really good at times. Sometimes it seems like the food is not homemade... Just straight out of the can.. But I will eat there again. It's really not that bad.

Cafeteria style, noisy and crowded...but...remember you are here to eat and what great food. Some call it Southern style and others call is Soul food.....all I know is it tastes like Mama is in the kitchen! Being Southern born and raised I know real old fashioned cooking and Oj's is some of the best....fried chicken, okra, fresh turnip greens, real... More

Went to OJ's a few months ago for the first time. I am not particularly a fried chicken person, but boy, oh boy, was that the best chicken I have ever had....better than my grandmother's! The fried okra is excellent and neither are "greasy"....I have to admit the chicken was so good, I've had it every time I have been... More

This place does not look like a good option at first, and lots of outsiders will mistake the one-line buffet for a soup kitchen. However, you interact with some of the other customers (mostly locals when I went) and you get a great community feel. As for the food, it is not spectacular, but its acceptable for the price. I...

Somewhat legendary and appeals to cross section of the community. If you are looking for a solid meal with a selection of meats and vegetables, prepared the old fashioned way, this is the place for you. Good for breakfast too. Have some fried fish with those eggs and grits!

If you want some home cooking, OJs will fill the bill. There is one in Easley now, too. I am pretty sure they are related. Their white fish is really good, but they sell a lot of different kind of food including burgers, hotdogs, and meat and three.

Everything I've ever ate there melts in your mouth. Absolutely delicious and wonderful staff. I generally frequent the Greenville store on Fridays for Ribs. Best ribs I've ever eaten. Brought many people there who are now regulars as well.
