But the Upstate institution, which opened in 1932, isn’t the only place in town to enjoy a made-from-scratch meal. In recent years, several other local-minded restaurants have taken up residence in the historic district. Offering everything from soul food to pizza to Boston-style grinders, these independent eateries are sure to satisfy your hunger, whatever it is you’re craving.
At Harold’s, the big sellers are the “world-famous chili burgers and hotdogs.” You won’t break the bank with those two belly-fillers or any of the old-school Southern favorites on the menu, among them a homemade pimento cheese sandwich, fried green tomatoes, and chicken stew.
Boston Annie’s bills itself as a classic American sub shop, serving an appetizing array of grinders, salads, soups, and sweets. And much like the cozy Boston bar in the TV comedy “Cheers,” the friendly staff will make you feel like a regular.
