GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Since the 1990s, CPW’s in Greenville has been offering up dishes with a unique spin to it.

They’ve got everything from classic pasta dishes, to specialty items celebrating events like Christmas and Mardi Gras.

“The menu is always something new and interesting and I like that,” said Karen Goble, a regular there.

“We do that so we have something different to offer to our guests, something that you can’t find anywhere else in Greenville,” said CPW’s manager Opal Webb.

Currently, CPW’s is celebrating “The Blues” with a specialty menu. One of the appetizers off of it — the bourbon shrimp.

“This one is a really buttery and molasses spicy dish, and then you get a kick of your Tennessee bourbon,” Webb said.

The Carolina Cajun Pasta and Seafood Diablo are two of the most popular items on the main menu year-round.

“The chicken has got a lot of spice and flavor to it. You mix it all together and that sauce kind of adds creaminess,” said WNCT’s Josh Birch.

The Carolina Cajun pasta features chicken and peppers tossed in a creamy Cajun sauce and served over penne pasta.

The Seafood Diablo features mussels, scallops and shrimp tossed with pasta and CPW’s homemade spicy marinara.

“A lot of people don’t even know this place exists, because they say I had never heard of this place,” said regular Maurice Blackwell. “If you come here you’ll definitely enjoy the food and atmosphere.”
