More Family Meals-To-Go in the Upstate

Here are a few more family meal options we’ve seen in the past that our readers have recommended that are available all the time.

Viva Chicken

This new Peruviuan Rotiserie Chicken restaurant in Greenville, offers families a great deal on their signature chicken with 3 family-size side dish for $27.

Viva chicken

Tropical Grille

This place was the one that readers recommended the most. They have a family meal for either four or eight people that is really awesome. I personally love Tropical Grille, which is a Cuban fast food restaurant with a healthy twist. Their perfectly seasoned chicken and pork pair well with rice and steamed vegetables – and don’t forget their sauces, which are all amazing and delicious. A few readers even said that the family meals give them leftovers (yay!). No need to call ahead. Because of the suggestions of our readers, I did my own “research” and tried this out one night and did not disappoint – I had leftovers for the next day.

The family of four meals is approx $25 unless you substitute pork and then it’s a little more and comes with chicken plus four sides and sauces and a half-gallon drink. The family of eight meals is $40, the same stipulations. It comes with two drinks instead of one for a family of four. You can walk in and order these but they suggest calling ahead of you want the pork instead of chicken. See their website for locations.

  • $25.99/four person
  • $45.99/eight person
Tropical Grill


This place serves up healthy, Mediterranean cuisine that is fast and affordable. Everyone in the family will find something they love here. Taziki’s offers fresh take-home dinners for four people that include a Greek salad, basmati rice or roasted potatoes, and pita chips. You have to call two hours in advance though (or order online) and pick-up after 2 pm so plan ahead. They offer mostly meat options but do have a grilled vegetable option.
Prices range from $49.99 up to $74.99 depending on your entry of choice.

New York Butcher Shoppe

You can either sign up for the New York Butcher Shoppe email, which will give you the week’s menu, or call ahead.
The email I got displayed a mouth-watering bacon and cheddar stuffed pork chops, which came with french bread and a house salad.

A haven for the vegetarians and vegans among us – and really, just those of us who love great food – is the Sun Belly Cafe in Greenville. Follow their Facebook page for their latest menu items and call or text them 24 hours ahead of when you want to pick up.
