Chanelo's Pizza was a dine-in parlor located between Tiger Town Tavern and Mr. Knickerbockers that also included a game room. The eatery was known locally for it's on-campus delivery service. One of it's more requested sandwiches was called the Versuvian. It consisted of a freshly made sub roll with an elongated ground beef patty covered in shredded lettuce, tomato, mayo, and mustard. It was opened in the winter of 1975 by Herb Channell, who closed the Clemson store in the early 90's when he began having health problems. He was the original founder of Chanelo's Pizza, which began in California. Mr. Channell has planted Chanelo's in California, Tallahasse, and Ohio. His daughter operates a Chanelo's in Pickens, South Carolina using the same family recipes. The Chanelo's of Pickens has been open since February of 2000. Herb's store slogan was "Nothing Beatsa Chanelo's Pizza". A new Chanelo's location reopened on Highway 93 in 2006, but closed a year later due to the economic downturn. It is now a different pizza restaurant non-affliated with Chanelo's Pizza. Herb Channell's daughter, Kim Phillips, and her husband, Henry Phillips, own and operate the Chanelo's in Pickens which is closed on Mondays.

Its hours of operations are: Tuesday-Thursday 4pm-10pm Friday & Saturday 4pm-11pm Sunday 4pm-10pm
