Bar
“This is the most nostalgic spot in Clemson, by far. The food is amazing, and the atmosphere compares to no other. If you're looking for good southern food, the meat and 3 is a MUST (not served on Saturdays). I'll let you in on a little secret that not a lot of people know about...you can get chicken fingers instead of the meats offered that specific day. The Esso Club has the BEST chicken fingers around. Don't miss out on this opportunity if you like chicken fingers. Esso Club also has really good chili. I recommend the nachos. ”

Coffee Shop

“Skip Starbucks during your time in Clemson and you'll be glad that you did! This adorable coffee shop in the heart of downtown Clemson will not disappoint. The coffee is amazing (I recommend The Panda Bear) and so is all of the food! This place is great to just go sit with your family and friends to enjoy a cafe type environment, but it's also a one-stop-spot for someone who needs to get some work done.”

“By far, the Smokin' Pig offers the best BBQ in the area. There are two convenient locations near Anderson - 6630 Clemson BLVD, Pendleton, SC 29670 and 720 Anderson Drive, Williamston, SC 29697. Save room for dessert because the banana pudding is to die for! ONLY open Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays!”
