Overview

From the moment Rapscallion opened in the summer 2015, crowds cannot get enough of this modernized Southern comfort food in Lower Greenville. The wood-lined dining room allows guests a glimpse into the kitchen where they are frying up pickled Southern vegetables (like okra and green tomatoes) or popular Nashville-style hot chicken, partnered with szechuan mala sauce. The bar, finished with a sliding ladder, pours classic and modern cocktails — with an expertise in rum and whiskey — and New World wines, some hailing from Texas.
