Spartanburg’s Wall Street has lots of tasty dining spots
In my book, New York could take a page from downtown Spartanburg and revamp its Wall Street into a pedestrian brick lane filled with eateries.
If you’re hungry, Wall Street is the place to go.
Your family will love Hub Diggity Dogs. Bobby Beauvais reopened his popular hot dog and sandwich shop on Wall Street and if you hang around at lunch you’ll likely see a who’s who of Spartanburg. For a real Carolina tradition, order a Chili Bun: a toasted, buttered bun topped with house-made chili for $2. No dog needed (but his dogs are really good). On Thursdays and Fridays, Beauvais offers a lobster roll that contains a full quarter-pound of dressed Maine lobster. It is to die for.
Right next door is Baguette & Company. Owner John Bellefontaine bakes his own bread and creates stellar sandwiches. This is a lunch spot and bakery, though Baguette (as it’s referred to by its customers) is also open for Saturday morning breakfast.
On the other side of Hub Diggity is Health in Hand Juice & Smoothie Bar. Emily Wood produces premium sips and offers great grab-and-go salads and wraps. Her juices are cold pressed and really delicious. If your kids insist on hot dogs, no worries: just walk next door.
If you go on a Wednesday, you’ll fall into the Hub City Farmers Market from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. Feed the kids lunch and shop for locally grown produce. How much fun is that?
Eat Out! tip: Going to see the Carolina Panthers practice? Park at the downtown Spartanburg parking deck, have lunch on Wall Street and take the free shuttle over to the practice.
The bottom line
Wall Street is the one-stop-shop in downtown Spartanburg to feed lunch to everyone in your family.
