The Beacon was started in 1946 and has been a landmark for the SC upstate for a long time. It has been reviewed a million times and featured on shows like Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.
The Beacon is the definition of a greasy spoon. They are known for their unique ordering style and boy you better know what you want when you get to the front of the line and they yell "Call it"! Andy ordered a Chili-Cheese-A-Plenty, which is a chili cheeseburger covered in a mix of french fries and onion rings, and I got a M&M Cheeseburger, which is a cheeseburger with mayonnaise and mustard. We had been warned ahead of time that we could easily share one serving of "a-plenty" and I'm glad we held off on a second order, we couldn't finish what we had. Oh, and we order two of the famous sweet teas.
