Southern and Savory: The Best Things to Eat in Greenville, South Carolina

Located just a few miles from downtown, the Pita House is a locals’ favorite that serves up lots of traditional Middle Eastern fare at a bargain. Lines can stretch out the door as customers wait to order at the counter. The menu is extensive, and everyone seems to have their favorites, like hummus, falafel and chicken or beef shawarma. But the tasty gyro plate — seared strips of a seasoned blend of lamb and beef, tasty tahini salad, pickled vegetables, olives and pita — is a frequent order for good reason (and can also be served as a sandwich). You’ll have a hard time spending more than $10 on anything, and the restaurant and adjoining Middle Eastern market only accept cash.
