Wild Ace Pizza & Pub of Greer S.C. Holds A Winning Card *Seeking The Best Food In South Carolina
What’s New With Meg?
Having reached my goal of 100 Dishes To Eat In Alabama Before You Die, I’m now on a South Carolina food journey to chow down at the best restaurant in each of the 46 S.C. counties, while seeking the Top 100 Food Dishes To Eat In South Carolina While Alive, Or, Before Dead, Whichever Comes First.
Tasty Tuesday at Wild Ace Pizza & Pub of Greer, S.C.
Why This Stop?
Lately, I’ve been trying to hit up more pizza places and this place gets my vote for a really good slice of pizza. To me, eating a good slice of craft pizza is like slipping into a warm bath, infused with the scent of my mood. It doesn’t have to be under a starlit sky, an ordinary tub makes me happy. Pizza makes me feel the same way, the epitome of comfort food.
Wild Ace Pizza & Pub in Greer happens to have a really good slice of pizza, and that makes me happy.
The thing that I absolutely love most about Wild Ace is that, like my bath scents, and depending upon my mood, I can put whatever I want on just my slice. I.Love.That. Why more places across this land do not make pizza slices my way is beyond me.
Other things I love about Wild Ace Pizza and unlike the McPizza places, they have a wide variety of food, including some options to individualize a meal, such as half sandwiches with a side, or *pick three* from the appetizer menu. I love bringing my visitors for this reason. And unlike many other restaurants, they don’t just have the “blah, blah, blah” for appetizers. One of my MEGapicks is the house-made potato chips. Thinly sliced and sprinkled with parmesan cheese, I have to get them every time that I visit.
Unfortunately, I don’t have many photos of my meals at Wild Ace. In particular, the Calzone is TDF and makes a great foodporn photo. In February of 2018, Wild Ace closed up shop in Spartanburg, S.C. The lease had ended and the owners were unable to find a place to suit their needs. They have decided to put their effort into the Greer location.
Not only did I love their pizzas and menu, I loved sitting on the outdoor patio, eating pizza, and just hanging out on the main street in Spartanburg. Also, I miss a place in downtown Spartanburg that doesn’t have wacky hours. So hey owners of Wild Ace Pizza & Pub, I hope you return to the Spartanburg area.
MEGastars – 4**** and 5 MEGastars to making pizza the MEG way!
- Link to their website. Wild Ace Pizza and Pub
- Hours: Mon-Sat: 11:00 am – 11:00 pm Sun: 10:00 am – 9:00 pm
- I love the appetizer menu so much that I always want to choose three for my meal but I always choose pizza. So do visit with a group and try several.
- To my knowledge, the Spartanburg location did not serve brunch. But their brunch menu is outstanding. Including items such as chicken and waffles, low-country benedict, hash brown casserole, crepes, mimosas, breakfast pizza, Belgian waffles, and breakfast pizzas, you may want to check that brunch out. Served Sunday 10-2. The website indicates that the brunch “fills up fast” and to get there early.
- Wild Ace Pizza also does catering, special of the day, and claim to have the best beer menu in town.
This MEGabites and MEGastars description is found at the bottom of each South Carolina Tasty Tuesday post. If you are new to my 100 Dishes South Carolina escapade, this may be helpful information.
Follow along on “Tasty Tuesday’s” as I make my way like Miss Pacman in yet another state that I call home. A culinary trip across scenic and historical South Carolina. *I select stops based on convenience of location and they are in no particular order.
The blogs will be available under the South Carolina 46 Best tab.
I am loosely following the list of “The best restaurants in each South Carolina County for 2016.”
Maybe the food from these chosen restaurants will make it on my list, and maybe they won’t. I often refer to this list as “46BestSC”
Unlike my “Alabama 100 “quest where I followed a formal list from Alabama Tourism, and to my knowledge, there is not a formal South Carolina “100 list.” I am making my own list the Meg way and have some food fun while making my way like Ms. Pacman, in yet another state that I call home.
I have been visiting places that vary from the Mom and Pop diners to the white cloth James Beard recipient eateries. A quest to find tasty dishes, unusual settings, and great foods that highlight folks who are dedicated to local food with pride and a whole bunch of South Carolina style.
I use a 5 MEGastar system. For the most part, I am traveling a distance to try these dishes and these places get one shot at how I view the food and experience. I will not be taking an average of three visit experiences and I factor this in when I give my star rating. That said, I’m very easy to please, I can overlook quite a bit and have worked in the foodservice industry. I am not a *schooled food critic, just Meg, a curious traveler, with an interest in trying different foods and sharing my two cents on the experience. I try to follow my own star system so that I may be fair to the wonderful dishes on this list.
- *meh food. Just wasn’t good. Maybe the food came from a can? or, the place was not one that I would want to send someone to show pride in South Carolina. This has happened to me a few times and is always a difficult write for me.
- ** passable – the food was “ok” but the place was not “ok” or vice versa.
- *** good but not outstanding or unique.
- **** Very tasty dish AND meets one of the definitions set forth by Meg. Local food and/or truly highlights South Carolina Pride.
- ***** I actually died, went to heaven and came back when I ate the dish. And/Or, something is very unique, something you cannot get anywhere else.
