RE: Spartanburg, SC...Where should I eat!?
I moved to upstate SC in August and have visited the Beacon several times -- in fact, I was just there yesterday and had a tasty chili cheeseburger a-plenty with my wife! And of course the sweet tea is phenomenal. The breakfast menu does indeed look great, too -- I bet the country ham plate is delicious!
While I love the Beacon, I do sometimes wish it were just a bit cleaner. The place is so busy, I'm sure it's hard to keep up with the customers. Also, I recommend NOT getting an "a-plenty" unless you are with another person and can share it. The first time we visited, my wife and I both ordered sandwiches a-plenty, and wound up wasting a lot of fries and onion chips. Unless you are very, very hungry, the a-plenty can be shared. When you go to the Beacon, you will see a lot of folks around you who have not been able to finish off their a-plenty!
