“An Orginal Great for Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

Visiting Greenville staying near airport (Greer) was recommended to take the journey to Stax's Orginal - about a 8 min drive; easy hwy to hwy to an orginal. Nestled amoung the new development in the area -- offered short counters and table seating. Everyone was moving, friendly folk pouring coffee and chit-chatting with all. Prices fare-- coffee and food Good!
Worth a trip. After our visit took Poinsett Hwy right into downtown Greenville

“Gathering after church!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

Been there so much that the owner knows us and we get setting almost right as we walk in the door. Yes, others are waiting for 10-20 mins. Sunday is a very proper time to go there. Food is good and if you don't see what you want just ask they will whip it up for you. Breakfast is always piping HOT!!! Who wants cold eggs?????

“Good breakfast joint, but don't expect anything too special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

Stax is a great place to go for breakfast - it's cheap and has all the breakfast staples available. I've been there a few times and have always been satisfied, but never super impressed. It tends to get very busy and the service can be slow at times. Definitely worth checking out though if you want a good breakfast spot.

“Good breakfast - good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

My daughter & I meet regularly here for breakfast. We can count on quick, personal service & several prompt coffee refills. Our eggs are cooked however we ask for them & if not done right (only once in the last 4 yrs) they will redo them if we ask. I always request my bacon cooked "crisp" & am never disappointed. I recommend the pancakes, scrambled eggs, steak biscuit, grits, and biscuits & gravy. The farmers omelette is also tasty. The coffee is ok- I like a stronger cup, but that's just me. If you want a fancier atmosphere or pricier food- this is not your place. But if you want hometown food in a family style old time setting Stax Original is it. This is a place you could eat several times a week- not just once in awhile. I love this place!
