For a meat and 3, this place can't be beat. Especially on Friday and Sunday when they serve the country style steak. It's beyond amazing. The veggies selections are numerous and all I've ever had were very tasty and generous servings. The only wait you will encounter is getting seated. The line is usually out the door but moves very...

I just wanted to take the time to put my 2 cents in as far as a review for Wades. Out of curiosity, I have read some of the negative reviews and I am dumbfounded! Obviously the person's making these negative comments, don't really know true southern food, and true southern food is not for everyone, however I love it... More

Wades is an institution in Spartanburg. Get there early or else you will wait in line. This is the only place in the burg to go for meat and three!!

This restaurant has been an institution here for decades. The food is tasty, plentiful and very cheap, though my string beans were out of a can and way overcooked. But the sweet potato souffle and fried chicken were delicious. This is not a fancy place at all, and what I would call a "joint." But service was very good, the... More

Most everything is opened from a can. There are a few items that are excellent such as the dressing, Mac/cheese, and fried chicken. The food is cooked as best as can be and some of the sides are pretty much just like opening a can or a frozen bag if corn. The rolls and corn muffins are pretty good. Overall... More

Delicious country cooking at its best. I think its Friday and Saturday you can by pass the crowd and use express. Here they have a choice of meat and all the veggies you want. I love this because I love vegetables.

That about all I can say. The veggies were overcooked. Mushy lima beans are NOT appealing! The waitress, who'd been here over 11 years, was happy to exchange them for me. I tried the sweet potato soufle. Boy was it sweet! The waitress and her attitude were the best part of the meal. She was very friendly and helpful. It... More

Stopped by Wade's (a restaurant that serves home cooking) today around 4:30 in order to avoid the line-I left at 5:19 , less than an hour-that's because the waitress rushed us.She first gave us the check without asking if we wanted desert, didn't offer refills (they use to) and actually removed my plate while I was still eating-we've experienced the...

Hi, thank you for letting us know about the issue you had at our restaurant this week. We pride ourselves on our speed of service, but rushing someone to eat is not how we train our staff to treat our guests. If you are able to remember, I would appreciate your servers name so I can coach them on the... More

My friend and I dropped by for lunch after recommendation of a mutual friend. The restaurant is very busy for lunch and there was a line of customers waiting, but they are efficient with service. All the food was great! I can't wait to go again

Thank scgirlsc
