No visit to Spartanburg is complete without a visit to this local institution. The food is reasonably priced (<$10 per person) and top quality. I have NEVER had a bad meal at Wade's, and I have been eating there all of my life. Only potential knock is that they don't take cards. However, they do have an ATM in the... More

Hey David! Thank you so much for the kind review. However, I wanted ot make you aware that we do take cards now. We do still have the ATM just in case we have issues with our processor since we are new to taking cards. Hope to see you soon! More

I had heard about this place and the big variety of food , so i was excited to try it. Well it was a big disappointment. The place is noisy , very cafeteria like with no atmosphere. Plastic dishes ( that had crusted food residue on the underside). Our waitress seemed annoyed to have another table to deal with. The... More

WL3, General Manager at Wade's Family Restaurant, responded to this review

Hi Karen, Sorry your visit to our restaurant wasn't what you expected. I am a little confused because nowhere in our restaurant do we use plastic plates? We only use full ceramic plates to make sure it has that homecooked meal feeling to it. Also if you don't mind I would like to get a little more information about your... More

Wades has a vast and dedicated clientele with Spartanburg locals. People here know the place; they know the owner; they know the wholesome and trustworthy spirit that both runs the place and shows in the attitude of the employees. Wades offers a simple, but varied menu of home cooking--meat and two vegetables style. I've never had a bad meal at... More

Wade's is great for us for the following reasons: the buffet line for lunch goes fast, if you don't want to wait for a seated table; the vegetables are vegetarian, not salty and good; and there are several choices of proteins. We both had the hamburger steak, which was served with sweet sautéed onions and two vegetables of your choice,... More

This is your typical southern restaurant. Although not fancy, it was hometown cooking. The vegetables and soup were the best. It was very busy and a quick turnaround. The waitress was friendly and gave great recommendations. If you want reasonable value for southern foods then this is the place to go.

This is where we locals around Spartanburg go when we want really good home cooking type of food. Great selection. The meat loaf is one of my favorites.

I've lived in Spartanburg all my years and Wade's is a staple. The thing most important to me is that it is always consistent. Turkey and dressing is the same week in and week out. The same goes for Mac in cheese or fried chicken. I also love that it is near the hospital so when I there visiting friends... More

No need to fix that traditional Sunday lunch...just go to Wade's. We get it to go almost weekly! Holidays are sooo much easier ordering Wade's frozen southern cornbread style dressing, classic macaroni and cheese, and the best gravy! Grandmama would approve!

I had dinner here based on the reviews and they were spot on. The food selection was massive and fast. Not sure it gets much better for a meat and 3 sides.
