Hello - this is my first post on chowhound. I've religiously used this site to find good food all around the world. I really love it when I travel as I love finding great local food.

I just moved from NYC to Greenville and have been on the hunt to find some great restaurants. So far I have found two that I really like and wanted to get thoughts on others to head to.

Went last night to Cafe Paulista Grille on Wade Hampton. The food is really fantastic - I especially loved the top sirloin and chicken skewers with the feijoada (black beans stew and rice). VERY reasonably priced and BYOB (Publix is very close for some wine). The owner, Val is a sweetheart who introduced herself and talked us through the menu. An enjoyable dinner and highly recommended

I also frequent Saigon Fast Food off North Pleasantburg for a chicken banh mi sandwich (with extra veggies) Run by husband/wife team they have some great authentic vietnamese and are very inexpensive.

For BBQ I really like the food and atmosphere of Henry's BBQ. Cute place and food is consistently good.

I've been on the hunt for great mexican food and read a bit about Las Meras Tortas. I liked the place but wasn't blown away. Any other thoughts on mexcian? I'd love to find some good tacos al pastor.

I've read other posts on Greenville restaurants especially the ones downtown. I really want to uncover the hidden gems of Greenville. Many thanks for any recommendations!

Best,
David
