exit 90 (the gafney outlet mall) and exit 54 (pelham rd, greenville) for your starbucks. for restaurants though, i can't think of anything other than chains within a mile or two off the highway. Try woodruff road- the business coridor of greenville, exit 51. i usually try to fly through charlotte, get to the SC to refuel, and eat in greenville.
Just in case anyone is still using this topic... I love Smoke on the Water for its ambience and comfort food. Go on Tuesdays get a half bottle of wine and some greasy but upscale BBQ and mac and cheese. Eat outside, best spot. Or enjoy the live music. And for a place that can be for a special occassion or your go-to weekly good food, try Larkins on the River, love the wine list and a la carte menu. Goot location. I love dining in Greenville, I spend about half the month done there, and some of you don't realize how lucky you are to live in such a good and progressive town.
