We visited Hoots while in Winnsboro area. The sandwiches were excellent. The stff was always friendly and serve great. However, the last time we stopped there was a sign on the window stating that they had gone out of business.

Part antique shop, part diner, part coffee shop, Hoots is a hoot! From the "Concealed weapons allowed inside" sign (ask for the story about that) on the front door, to... More

They specialize in sandwiches and soup and hot dogs. Many locals eat here, but it's nothing special. Prices are good. It's on the main drag through town.

Cool little spot in downtown Winnsboro. I liked that not all of the furnishings matched (mismatched tables, chairs, etc). Gave it a feel of being in a friend's eclectic house for lunch. Anyway, on to what's important ... the food! I ordered the Troublemaker sandwich, and my friend ordered the grilled ham and cheese. Both were perfection. Prices were very... More

My wife and I visit Winnsboro S.C. frequently on our trips between Reading, Pa and Pompano Beach, Fl. It is our 1/2 way point of the trip. Hoots is a delightful luncheonette hidden amoung the shops lining South Congress St. Luanne the owner and her son cook up many breakfast and lunch delights to please your palate. Our next trip...
