Yum!

The best sweet tea in town. You can't go wrong in the express line when it's open for all you can eat veggies but sit down service is great too. They are also super quick!

Hadn't been to Wares in a while. Stopped in for weeknight dinner. Country Style Steak was excellent as always. The Express line is the way to go - unless you just like everything carried to you. Wades is the standard that I hold every other "down home", "southern", " country cooking" restaurant up to. So far, none measure up. Great... More

Wade's Family Restaurant in Spartanburg,SC has excellent home cooked food for a very reasonable price. Be sure and order the pecan pie for dessert.

Went there based on fellow reviews. Got the pulled pork with green beans and potato sides. The pulled pork was watery, the sauce was pretty generic, and the green beans were pretty average. Was not up to par on what I expected from a highly rated southern comfort restaurant.

Not only have I been a lifelong customer of Wades, I grew up with the Lindsey children in the Ben Avon Community. Wade's was started by Wade Lindsey, and his children have carried on the family business. Good food, good service, great family atmosphere. What more is there to say.

Not since my Grandmother passed have I sat down to a meal of such down home comfort food. The Country Style Steak at Wades is the best you will ever get. the service is second to none.

Had lunch here with friends. I had the flounder and hush puppies, while one friend had turkey and stuffing and the third person had fried chicken. We were all quite happy with our lunch. The service was great, and you just can't beat the prices. While my friends had been to Wade's many times it was my first visit, I... More

Thanks once again Trip Advisor reviewers for finding a unique spot. I was expecting greasy food, NOT so. In fact it was delicious. We all ordered different sides to share. All cooked well with very different tastes (sweet to salty (even the collard greens were good)) my picky 90 year old father-in-law liked the fruit salad with the mini marshmallows.... More

My family went to this restaurant for the first time on this trip. The food was great and so was the service. Plenty of tables inside and plenty of parking outside. The fish was great and so was the fried chicken. Adequate staffing to handle the large volume of customers.

I can't believe Wade's isn't in the #1 spot for restaurants in Spartanburg. It's been around for ages, and the food is GREAT. I get so excited when I get to eat at Wade's. It's just an all around great experience, and I love stuffing myself on their macaroni and cheese.
