I've recently moved to Newberry County, and am building a house just south of Whitmire. Today I visited Pearl's Cafe on Main Street in Whitmire for a lunch of meat 'n three -- well, in our case it was meat 'n two, but the number of veggies you get is entirely at your own discretion.
My companion tried the fried chicken and I had the fried tilapia. My fish was crispy and tasty, with a dab of house-made tartar sauce. I had the green beans and steak fries. The beans were good; the fries were previously frozen, but acceptable. I liked the tilapia so much, my companion added on a serving of it. We both had iced tea, of course.
The total, including tax and tip, was just under $16.00 for two meat 'n two plates, two iced teas and the add-on extra "meat".
Pearl's isn't a destination place, but it's worth a stop if you're in Newberry or Union County. I look forward to coming back and having their breakfast.
Open for breakfast and lunch excepting on Wednesday and Saturday, but call ahead to be sure.
