There are two Tex Mex restaurants in Pickens and this is really the only one you should go to. Their menu selection is better and the quality of their food and service is far far better than the other one.
If hankering for a bit of Tex Mex while in Pickens, try this place out. They do a really good job

We are located in the heart of downtown Pickens SC. We serve Breakfast Lunch and Dinner and the most delicious coffee! Come by and see us!
My absolute favorite place to get specialty coffee in Pickens County, SC. The sandwiches are delicious and fresh. The coffee is amazing! They have a large selection of sugar free coffees and protein shakes as well. Love all 4 locations, and especially the new location in Pickens.

In the foothills of the Smokey Mountains is a real slice of nostalgia. Aunt Sue's is collection of several specialty shops ranging from the restaurant (what I expected) to the Harley Davidson leather shop (totally unexpected). Every shop was manned by friendly, smiling, people with a soft southern drawl.
The buildings are old, gray and weathered...a perfect fit for the hills in which they are nestled. Just loved it!
Don't just drive by...stop. Go out of your way to visit Aunt Sue's...you won't regret it!

We drove by on our way to Table Rock State Park and noticed lots of cars parked around this place. While checking in at the park, we inquired about this place and were told their food is "Pretty Good".
So, we stopped in mid-morning for Breakfast. Again the place was full of vehicles. Walked in and soon realized this is where "The Locals Go". If this is where the locals go, you know the food is great and prices good! We did have a great breakfast & the price was good. The Grill Cook has worked here for 25 years & knows how to make food taste great. We were also impressed when the owner "BILL", who stopped over to visit with us, really nice guy.
If in the area, be sure to stop in.

Upscale bar and restaurant in the heart of sleepy little downtown Pickens SC. Has a homey feel with a array of beers on tap and in bottles and a large variety of liquors and wines. Pool tables and dart boards for the young at heart downstairs and a large granite bar top and seating area upstairs means we have something for everyone. Awesome food choices such as hand pressed burgers, many flavors of wings, Shrimp and Grits, pasta dishes, seafood and steaks! Nightly specials and events too!
We just moved to Pickens and have eaten here a few times. Food is very good and everything is reasonably priced. Robin was our waitress the last couple times and she is awesome, she made us feel like locals even though we just moved here. Thursday nights is "bottle cap bingo" night, we had a blast. This is going to be one of our regular hangout places.

Pumpkintown Opry is the best kept secret in Pickens! I have lived in Pickens my entire life, and my family and I frequent the Opry for weekend lunches, lattes, and ice cream! We love the restaurant, and you will not find friendlier people in a restaurant. If you're looking for a downhome, country atmosphere, this is the place to go! The food is always excellent, and the lattes are outstanding! It's the perfect addition to a nice day of leaf viewing or hiking. Also, they have a hummingbird viewing area! Ask about it! They are fascinating to watch!

My family has been visiting this pizza place for several months - since their first week as a new, family-owned pizza restaurant. It's nothing fancy inside - and they are usually busy (especially on a Friday night - logically enough). But there is some space to eat in (or picnic tables outside if you prefer), and it's definitely great for calling ahead your order and picking it up to go. Pizza is very good, and prices are extremely reasonable.

I stopped by here while I was driving through town. Looked up reviews on here to find a place to eat and decided to try here. The service was top notch as all the workers were very nice. I got the the cheeseburger combo. Unfortunately the patty was a frozen and not hand patted but it did taste good. Next time I will try the hot dogs as I saw a lot of people getting them. The restaurant is clean and nice inside. If your in the area and would like a good meal, then stop by here.

A prohibition style speakeasy in the heart of Pickens, SC. 5 minutes to the Blue Ridge Mountains, 20 minutes to Lake Keowee, Lake Jocassee, and Lake Hartwell. Our place is just a few blocks from the well known 12 mile Doodle Trail that connects Pickens, SC to Easley, SC. Come enjoy an evening at the Ale House and feast on some of our Famous Farmhouse Appetizers sourced from our local baker and farmers. Once you walk down our steps, you will feel as if you have left all your cares and worries. Turn your phone off. Sit. Stay. Feel what it is like to be part of the #Alehousefamily.
Cozy speak-easy style little downstairs pub. An ever rotating menu of craft and local microbrews. You won't find your standard cheap domestics here. The appetizer type food pairs well with the drinks. They also have wines, and for the kids they keep an amazing root beer on tap. Friendly staff, and great entertainment. Some Saturdays food trucks come so you can grab a meal and take it into the ale house with you.

Over the years, my friends and family have eaten here numerous times. We get together every two weeks as a group and we have never been disappointed at the Pizza Inn. The waitresses have always been friendly and attentive to our needs. The salad bar is kept fresh with a wide variety of toppings. The variety of pizza is also good - and if you don't see your favorite - they takes requests and will get one ready for you. They remodeled the restaurant a year or so, and it is quite nice now, You won't regret coming in for pizza. Great value for the money.
