“If you love BBQ - this is it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

When I move to a new city, I search for some little "mama papa joint" that has the flavor of great home cooking and no upscale atmosphere at all - but that of the local community. If you love great BBQ, this is the place to go. And you'll always see it surrounded with cars and trucks - guess why! If you're looking for a nice place to take your wife on Mother's Day - this may not be it. Try Conner's Steakhouse for that. The Greenbrier Restaurant has been one of those family owned businesses for many years and serves the community very well. You can also take a group to one of their larger rooms - surprising how many people they can actually seat.

“Southern cooking at its best!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

Home of the "true hush puppy"… The old Greenbrier restaurant is as home-grown as it gets. Overalls are not required, but our regular attire everyday. This truly is food like grandma always made.

“Delicious! All Fried”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Catfish is incredible. Hush puppies are amazing. Chicken fingers are shockingly delicious. Everything is fried. Service is fast and friendly. Definitely recommend. This is a staple of the community

“Sad they failed -- Health Score of 74”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

Used to be a favorite, but NOT SAFE ANYMORE. Heath Score of 74, Repeat offender, last score was only 80. Ice maker needs cleaning. Dirty bins and utensils stored as clean. Cheese 54, Ham 55, Chicken 57, Ribs 54, Hamburgers 120. Damaged lids & bins. Great hushpuppies are not worth getting sick.
