Perfect Buns, a walk-up burger bar, opens in Greenville’s Camperdown Plaza
GREENVILLE, S.C. – Burgers, brews and handhelds. That’s what Perfect Buns, a walk-up burger bar located at the AC Hotel in the Camperdown Plaza, is all about!
The restaurant, previously known as Social Burger, closed its doors back in December of 2022. In mid-March, the restaurant reopened with a new name, new menu items and local ingredients.
“We’ve refined our brand and reopened as Perfect Buns,” AC Hotel Greenville Beverage Director Baileigh Wilson explained. “The halo [in our logo] signifies the wholesomeness and all the goodness that goes into our brand. So everything is organic, and the beef is local. So, it’s not just about perfect flavor, but perfect health.”
“It’s healthy, it’s delicious, tastes good. It’s good for you, it’s good for the environment, and you can sit outside and enjoy the beautiful Plaza, which is great,” Executive Chef Fernando Coppola said.
Customers can order at the walk-up window or online for quick pick-up. From smash burgers and fries to savory sandwiches and brews on tap, Perfect Buns has something for everyone.
The low-fat, grass-fed burgers are smashed on the griddle at just the right heat to attain perfect beef caramelization before they are placed on the perfect bun.
“Our buns are perfect,” Wilson explained. “They don’t crumble. They’re nice and soft. And the buns combined with everything in the sandwich is what makes it perfect.”
The updated menu also offers additional vegan and vegetarian options!
“We have added on a Caesar wrap, which we can add our chickenless tenders or chicken, so we do have vegan and vegetarian options,” Wilson explained. “We’ve also added some chicken bites, which are really fantastic. We marinate them and brine them overnight. I could not stop eating them the other day,” she said with a smile. “We have three beers on tap. We have two wines on tap, and we have some frozen slushies as well. A frozen, a sangria and a non-alcoholic slushy, too.”
