DH Rob got a new GPS for his birthday and decided to try it out on our recent trip to Ohio. We have made that trip too many times to count over the last thirty years but he was interested to see what the GPS would recommend.
We were surprised that the GPS recommended a different route for the first small leg of our trip and decided to try it to see if it was indeed shorter. We were very pleasantly surprised to find that it was not only shorter but there were also very few stops and less traffic. I must insert here in my story that it was very early in the morning and it was still dark outside.
Last weekend when we headed up to NC for one last apple run we took the new route once again. This time we drove in the daylight. While driving along in the country we noticed a small diner with a parking lot packed full of cars. After we returned home I did some research online and discovered that this diner, The Hungry Drover, which is located on Tigerville Road in Travelers Rest, SC has been open for only about a year and a half.
The Hungry Drover has a Facebook page where you can see pictures and read about what is going on. They have a limited Friday evening menu which they list on their Facebook page. They also sell a variety of hand-crafted items and locally grown produce when it's in season.
The night we went the specials were Low-Country Boil and a barbecue plate. We both opted for the barbecue plate, which included two sides. Rob chose cole slaw and baked beans and I chose roasted red potato salad and baked beans. The barbecue, cole slaw and potato salad were excellent, but I thought the baked beans were a little too spicy for my taste.
We discovered from reading the comments on-line that some friends of ours have eaten there in the past. Rob talked with them and they said they love going there for breakfast. We hope to try that some time as well.
Have any of you ever been to the Hungry Drover? If not I would highly recommend that you give it a try.
The restaurant is located at 2601 Tigerville Road, Travelers Rest, SC. The phone numbers are 864-834-4707 or 864-901-5040. You might want to call or check the Facebook page before heading there. They are open for breakfast and lunch Monday through Saturday and also Friday nights for supper. The Friday menu is variable.
