We each enjoyed a bowl of hot Chicken Soup and a Beef Soft Taco, both enriched with good Mexican spices and herbs. The restaurant was nicely decorated and the waiters/waitresses performed their duties professionally.

A varied menu in a family style restaurant. Prompt service. Meals were tasty and portions were large. Willing to substitute items. Reasonably priced and drinks are availability. Able to accommodate large parties.

Friendly staff that makes the whole family have a good time. Food is good and reasonable prices. A good local Mexican restaurant. Bring pennies for kids to throw in to the fountain.

As usual great service and food on Sparkleberry Drive off Clemson Road. Tried the one in Lugoff, SC and the food wasn't even close to the quality of Sparkleberry.

Stopped here for an early dinner on a recent road trip. It was located off the main highway near shopping areas so easy to find and park. It was pretty empty when we got there and were seated promptly. The waitress was nice but had...More
