Busy place. Tried to seat people as quickly as possible. Looked like a lot of satisfied customers. Food was pretty tasty. Dry down to earth.

Our party of seven visited here and were highly pleased with the food and service. Most of the party ordered deuces wild which was the breakfast special and loved it. This is a must visit when in Greenville.

Go where everyone knows your name! This is where all the locals like to go! Friendly staff and great food! We had the country style steak and gravy with macaroni and cheese, broccoli casserole which was very tasty. We will definitely be going back.

I've eaten at Staxs Original numerous times for lunch and dinner. It's your typical diner, nothing fancy. I don't think it's ever been updated but the food and service is usually good. On this visit, I had a slice of roasted chicken, fried squash and...More
