John Paul's Armadillo Oil Co is a restaurant I always love eating at when I am in Greenville, SC. The steaks are great!

“Rude owner!”
Reviewed March 19, 2011

I was recently staying in Greenvile and was recommended John Pauls for their ribs and steaks. I was underwhelmed to say the least. The food was bland and extremely overpriced. The owner, John Paul, was blatantly rude when we asked to order something else! And from what I saw he treated his employees like dirt. Yelling at them from across the restaurant, and cursing in front of children. I think its time for him to retire and close that horrible storage building of dead animals, or what he calls a restaurant. Time to find a new hobby old man. Horrible place!

“You cannot go wrong at John Paul's, but ...”
Reviewed October 9, 2010

... know where you are going. John Paul's is a rib and steak place with a bar. But at times it is a bar first. So it can get noisy. Actually, that is part of the charm of the place. Then there is the decor - which since this is no chain - is someone's layout, not a machine's idea of what we want to see. The food is good. Potions plentiful. Beer cheap. John Paul takes good care of you. A Greenville institution - has not changed for 20+ years. Recommended you go with a small crowd or big one - maybe not as much fun as a couple.
