Too freaking hot otherwise! And the fans only stir hot air in summer.
It burned about 10 years ago. Rebuilt it, I think it was gone for about 2 years or so.

Also, my first sub was wolfed down at Stuffys, across from honeycombs, many a night after dropping off a date, I would (drunkenly maybe) eat the stuffy star before the trip home across the river.

and since my daughter lives in KC now, I've been wanting to go by there.
There was a direct correlation to the increase in my waistline when Stuffy's would deliver beer and Oreo ice cream with their subs.

Default Re: Which Restaurant Do You Miss?

Some of mine are more about the memories/traditions rather than the actual food.

Closed down:
1. McDowell's in Spartanburg. It was located on Asheville Highway, not too far from Hearon Circle. They had a really good hamburger steak and fried onion rings. My maternal grandparents lived in Spartanburg and I would usually spend a week or two with them during the summer. We would go eat there when I would visit and I think it was a good excuse for my granddaddy to eat there because we liked it more than my grandmama
2. Quincy's both in Rock Hill where I grew up and in Spartanburg. This is definitely more about the memories than the food. Another place granddaddy liked to go when I would visit. In Rock Hill, this was also where my dad and I would go when it was just the two of us.
3. Thursday's Too in Rock Hill. This was a staple place for the family to go out to eat. Pretty good food, even if a little overpriced. My sister and I learned how to divide before it was taught to us in school using their fried mushroom appetizer.
Dad: "OK, if there are 4 of us and 18 mushrooms, how many does everyone get?"
Me: "4, but there will be 2 left over. Who gets the extra 2?"
Dad: "Your mother and I, of course."
4. Kit Chen's Kitchen in Rock Hill. Chinese place where you could order from the menu or do the buffet. We would go there regularly after church for Sunday lunch. I still think they had the best egg drop soup. Also loved the spare ribs.

Still open:
1. Ebenezer Grill in Rock Hill. Great lunch place, just never in town for lunch.
2. Shrimp Boat in Rock Hill - "Ain't no chicken like Shrimp Boat chicken". As the motto implies, good fried chicken.
3. Side Street Pizza in Tryon, NC. Love their pizza, just don't find myself up that way too often.

There was the Pizza House on Sunset Blvd next to the old Quincy's Steak House. Yes!!! They had great pizza.

The Pizza Inn was in West Columbia across from Bojangles. They had a good lunch buffet.

You people have brought back some fantastic food memories!

Can't ever beat these places:

Hite's in Lexington
Applegate's Landing
S&S Cafeteria
Cole's in Sumter

One more place that I have to mention is Henry's Restaurant on Millwood Avenue in Columbia. It closed in the early 70's. My Aunt and Uncle owned it. That was some damn good food!

The original Ranch was great. Do you remember the Roseland Restaurant in Greenwood? That was run by my great grandparents.

Also Angelo's Steakhouse with the original garlic sour cream for the baked potatoes was run by family too.

There is still an original Capri's located in Greenwood that is fabulous!
