In Spartanburg County’s fast-changing food scene, announcements of openings, closings, expansions, new owners and new menus arrive almost weekly. It can be all too easy to get caught up in the constant pursuit of new things.

To celebrate all of Spartanburg’s restaurants, new and old, we recently visited three of the county’s restaurants that served up specialties ranging from specialty sandwiches and burgers to soul food and desserts to when we last saw them at the grand opening.

In addition to highlighting a few restaurants in the county, this story serves as a new monthly challenge for members of the Spartanburg Eats Facebook group and the Spartanburg foodie community. Share your experiences with these restaurants using the hashtag #SpartanburgEatsChallenge in this month’s Facebook or Instagram groups to continue the conversation and shine a light on great restaurants outside of downtown. .

Kitchen 292 in Inman

Kitchen 292 is a restaurant in Inman specializing in hot meals and gourmet burgers.  Robert Moore, center, restaurant co-owner, and his staff show Philly Beef with Onions and Chili, left, and Drunken Hawaiian Burger made with caramelized greens, bacon in Bourbon sauce with the onion.

Kitchen 292 opened in Inman in March 2019. Rob Moore, the restaurant’s managing partner, said the goal of opening the restaurant was to offer creative food and a great atmosphere.

“We wanted a kind of rustic, Old World charm. The interior of the restaurant is mostly recycled (materials). Most of the artwork is done by local artists,” Moore said. “I would say it’s a rustic burger joint with really cool decor and a really cool atmosphere.”
