With a concept born from a meeting of the four founders as they sat around a table noodling over starting a restaurant snacking on bacon, Bacon Bros Public House is a farm-to-table eatery emphasizing locally sourced ingredients.

Despite its location in a strip mall on busy Pelham Rd on Greenville’s far east side, the restaurant itself is rustic and inviting. A DSCF3730long bar runs the length of the left wall as you enter. Someone has spent some serious time agonizing over the available selection of small-batch and single-barrel bourbons. If there’s a more impressive selection of upscale bourbons in Greenville, we have yet to find it.

Beginning in the $45 range, the wine list features a well-rounded selection of whites and reds. At least a dozen wines are available at $6 a glass. Several craft beers are always on tap, too.

A row of wood booths frame the right and left sides of the dining room. A number of the tables are arranged for parties of six or more. This isn’t a cozy setting, but it is welcoming and comfortable.

What really sets Bacon Bros apart is its meat-intensive menu. This is a place for hearty appetites. Handling the seriously hungry begins with a meat-plate appetizer including selections like Salami, Country Prosciutto and Pancetta. Name the number of eggs you want in the Devil’s Dust Eggs at $.75 each.

There are even salads for those determined to consume something green and leafy. Gluten-free bread is available for the DSCF3724sandwiches, as are extras like a fried egg or the special Bacon Bros bacon. Sandwich prices start at $7 and run to $12.

Ordering one of the $13-to-$25 entrees is rewarded with a platter heaped with meat. Here again, there are some non-meat entrees, such as Wild Shrimp & Grits or the Vegetable Plate, for the feint of heart. There’s even a breakfast platter. Sides include Pit Cooked Franks & Beans, SC Collared Greens and Smoked Bacon Mac & Cheese. Oh, and give the Jalapeno Cornbread a try.

This is down-home Southern cookin’ that puts a creative face on comfort food.
