Great Southern, home cooking, must visit!

First visit to this Spartanburg landmark. Will not be my last. Don't know how I missed it for so long. Took a group there today on the recommendation of a friend. He was right. The restaurant is decided into two parts. One side is a traditional sit down, order from menu style eTwry. The other part... read more

Food is OK. Usually the vegetables that Spartanburgers rave about are hardly recognizable. Overcooked to the extreme. Fried chicken is pretty good. IF you are looking for a standard Southern Meat and Three, Wades is the place. If you are looking for really good Southern food, this is not the place. The famous yeast rolls are way too yeasty and... More

Have visited this restaurant for many years. Basic meat & three. OK, but I can't name a particular item that stands out. Portions have shrank as prices have gone up. Usually have to wait in a line unless you go through the express line. Cannot understand why debit or credit cards still are not are accepted, but there is a... More

Good for the local good for me? Well, I had the friend chicken, this was good. My husband had the bbq mash from the second it was served I said it looked like it needed some help and after one bite my husband said it needed more. Food was good, service was very good. Worth a visit but not the... More

If you have the time, I am curious to know what you meant by the BBQ Hash needed "help". I would like to make sure our staff is following our recipe, I'm aware... More

My husband and I both got the fried chicken and it was good. He got the tomatoes and okra which was delicious. I got the green beans which tasted canned, a disappointment. The sweet potato soufflé was sweet enough to be a dessert and was topped with a thick layer of melted marshmallow which neither of us cared for, but... More

Based on TA, we specifically sought out Wade's, thinking this was the panacea in Spartanburg. The waitstaff was great and very attentive and the prices are very reasonable, no arguement there. The food came at a rather quicker pace, surprising me since we arrived at dinner time. I had the fish with sweet potato casserole and broccoli. The fish was... More

HI Tom! Thank you for letting us know about your visit! I'm glad you were delighted by our service and speed. However, I'm sorry your broccoli was not cooked well enough. Undercooked is definitely not the goal of our Broccoli and Cheese. I'm guessing by the food items mentioned in your review that you came in on Monday or Tuesday... More

My wife and I have been going past this restaurant for years on our way to the Carolina Poodle Rescue in Pacolet. Every time we've passed by, the parking lot was full. That normally indicates consistently good food. We intentionally went after Church today and glad we did. Got there about 11:15 am and the line was out the door.... More

If you love home cooked food you will love Wade's. Fried chicken is great and then you can pair it with what ever sides you are feeling. They rotate entrees and sides daily.
