The walls, floors and furnishings are quite dark, giving the space a moody feel, but there's plenty of light coming through the tinted front windows that it's definitely not too dark. Cool wooden windows give you a view of the kitchen and the bar is fully stocked for nights with friends or a big game. There are even a few tables out front for an outdoor dining experience, which I love, although it's way too hot these days.
So let's talk burgers. Spartanburg has a lot of great burger places...Ike's, Nu Way, etc. where they really put a lot into their burgers. This one isn't going to beat those, but it's a good burger for sure. Juicy, perfectly cooked, great brioche bun and fresh toppings. You can get it with cheddar, provolone, pimento cheese, blue cheese, or american (pictured is provolone). The fries were right up my alley - crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside with a great seasoning. The pickle was standard, but an addition I would have missed if it wasn't there.
The patty melt was interesting. I'm going to be honest with you here. I love a good sweet/salty combo, but I'm not sure a patty melt should be served on cinnamon raisin bread. Kudos for the creativity, and please try it for yourself, but if it seems too creative for your taste buds, we were assured you can ask for different bread.
For those of you who were familiar with the space before, you'll see in the pictures that there is a large portion of the building that is blocked off. Mothers did purchase the whole space that Lil' D'z occupied, but right now the other portion is being used for storage. Eventually, it will be open as a "fun" space - lots of ideas in the air right now!
I hope you'll out Mothers soon! It's definitely worth it, and it's great to have another good, locally-owned restaurant in this area of town. I'm looking forward to trying the wings and wraps in particular, as well as "The Struggler". Let me know what you think!!
