And while it still sells all the staples of a concession stand, such as popsicles, popcorn, candy, and sodas to enjoy during the game, Manzolina’s Eatery is a full restaurant that you can count on whether there is an event at Harmon Field or not.


Manzolina’s Eatery is owned and operated by Demetrios Nguyen, a chef of thirty years. He and his wife, Lisa, moved to Tryon from New York two years ago. Manzolina started working at his father’s diner in New York and has been operating a food cart at numerous public and private events, like the Old Mill Market in Tryon where he will be cooking this Saturday. 


“I love Tryon and the area,” Nguyen said. “Our goal is for Manzolina’s Eatery at Harmon Field to be a restaurant folks can count on every day, year-round, no matter the weather.”


The Eatery opened in early May, and has steadily grown a reputation for having some of the best hot dogs and burgers in town. Recently, a free delivery service was added. Although there is no charge for local delivery, a tip for the driver is always greatly appreciated. The Eatery delivers 10:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Monday through Friday in Tryon, branching out as far as Polk County Sheriff’s Office in Columbus and to the Bird Mountain area in Landrum. 


Manzolina’s Eatery at Harmon Field is open seven days a week. The hours of operation are 10:30 a.m to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, and 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on  Sunday. The Eatery can be reached at (828) 440-1400 and can be found online at
