Honestly one of the BEST BURGERS and fries we have ever tried!?! I'm talking worldwide the best!! This sandwich house is DELICIOUS! Definitely a must-try if you are in/around the area! The chili nachos are also a hit! I highly recommend!
I went to Brooks sandwich house for the first time yesterday (7/27/22) for lunch with a work colleague. He saw that they recently were voted based burger in North Carolina so wanted to go. It's a nice little grab and go spot with pretty cheap burgers and sides, they have wooden tables outside you can stand at to eat. I ordered a cheeseburger with chili, onions and mustard and a side of onion rings. Unfortunately, they got my order wrong and gave me 2 cheeseburgers that had all the toppings EXCEPT chili, which was the one thing I really wanted on the burger. The burger tasted good (Not the best I've had in North Carolina). My favorite part of the meal was the onion rings, they were very crispy and light. Overall there are better burgers in Charlotte but if you're looking for a no frills place to grab a quick burger, this is a good spot.
Unfortunately, I hadn't really heard of Brooks' until the tragic murder of one of its owners. At that point, I definitely wanted to patronize. In the rain, I finally stopped by yesterday, 3-16-22. It was a splurge purchase as I've been trying to cut back on carbs. I ordered a cheese burger with everything on it & a side of fries. The fries were more like potato wedges, & that was fine with me. The young lady who assisted me was pleasant, & I received my food less than 5 minutes after ordering. Not sure if it was the best burger I've ever had, but I definitely could taste that the burger was seasoned. Would visit again for another splurge.
The burgers are great!! Made to order and very friendly customer service. The sides items is also tasty. Waited for about 5 minutes from order to finish, in which I ordered three burgers. Don't be fooled by the pictures, if it's your first time, go with a single burger. The double burgers cam be alot of burger to eat, especially if you get bacon add on. Really important to know, they only take cash. It is an ATM outside, but it will be a 2.50 surcharge. Overall, it's well worth the buy.
Saw this hidden gem on TikTok and glad that I did. Food was delicious and worth the 20 minute wait which is expected when you're getting fresh cooked food. I like the fact that the chilli was not runny or loose like most places. Only gripe I have is that they are only open Monday - Friday but as a family owned business I respect the scheduling to allow everyone to spend time with their families. So if you work a normal 9-5 and able to squeeze in the commute then definitely check this place out.
