First impressions are that downtown is still in a post-industrial slump but will probably explode as soon as the economy recovers enough to promote some real renovation. Plenty of very cool old factory real estate available with serious character.
W-S has sonic and chick-fil-a?! I almost dont need a scholarship to persuade me to attend anymore. any other solid/local fast food chains? unfortunately my fav (in and out) is on the other coast - is there a southeast equivalent? Haha, oh the factors that play into decisions....
Yes, there is a Greensboro originating chain called Cookout. It's not the same style as In and Out (I've only eaten there once like 10 years ago) but similar. Really cheap and delicious. Everyone loves it. We have Carl Jr except it is called Hardees which is also a NC chain.
Hardees was created in Greenville, NC which is why I say NC chain. I go to ECU and that is one of the trivia questions around here
That said, if you are looking for something W-S probably has it--it just won't necessarily be downtown. Google Maps and a 10-15 minute drive will find you whatever you are looking for.
I see, it originated there..well good job Greenville!
