A Family of Chefs
We’ve been creating delicious food for over 10 years
In the early 1900’s Greenville’s Boggs Street (where our ground-level back entrance is located) was called Chicora Street. Directly behind our building, the land from Camperdown to River Street was the Chicora College campus. Chicora College is now part of Queens College in Charlotte, NC. Chicora is an old Native American word that means Land of the Healing Breeze. The Chicora tribe were coastal Native Americans, their territory extended from the Savannah River to Cape Fear. They were some of the first Native Americans encountered by early explorers.
In 1995, the General Assembly of South Carolina declared April 20th Chicora Indian Day. Chicora Alley at Falls Park opened September of 2003. Chicora Alley in Mauldin opened September 2012. Our quarters provide a cozy setting where you can enjoy a lively blend of Caribbean Reggae and Southern Jazz to Rock n Roll and Bluegrass. Live entertainment and specials every night of the week. A place where the cuisine is a fusion of exotic island and good ol’ Southern home cookin’.
We are constantly buying and helping local businesses and organic farmers, with locally sourced produce.
Our Love for Our Food
The owners, two local brothers Ben and Adam “Bert” Dixon, have traveled their way across the country, adopting regional delicacies on the way. Then they returned to their roots in Mom’s kitchen – where they fused all that they had learned.
Welcome to Chicora Alley, Where the food and the atmosphere are as fresh as a healing breeze. We hope to leave you better that when you arrived.
