Emmy Squared - South End
We loved our dinner at Emmy Squared! The restaurant has great ambiance and is very clean. Diego was our waiter and he was awesome! We started with the Brussels sprout salad, waffle fries, and cauliflower bites. All were excellent! The pizza was the best part. It's very filling and we were able to split it between three people. The crust reminds me of the Pizza Hut personal pan pizzas in the 90s....so good!!
Best pizza in Charlotte, IMHO. Didnt realize that a new pizza spot had opened up until driving by Friday. Ive had it twice since then. The Colony and MVP are both fantastic. The crunchy crust really makes it and while its thick, it seems very lite and airy. Great addition to South End.
This is by far the best detroit style pizza in Charlotte. I read some the other reviews talking about how the place was getting up to speed and not quite ready to open. So we are transplants for the northeast where dinning and restaurants are clearly at a different level than most of the restaurants we have tried here in Charlotte. With that being said the place has nice ambiance and has some good character. The staff may be getting up to speed but what they lack in knowledge they more than make for with how warm they are. You get greeted at the door by a smiling face who is actually engaged in what they are doing. The staff is helpful and very friendly. The bartenders actually talk with you aside from just asking if you need more food or another drink. In Charlotte I am not sure bartenders actually have a clue on what it means to tend bar. This is overall a very good experience. If you are looking for great pizza and good food this place is a cannot miss. If you eat Papa Johns, Dominos, or Marcos this will be lost on you. Great pizza and a can't miss.
Quality ingredients indeed. Love how fresh everything tastes with a big punch of flavor and sometimes kick. This is not your normal pizza. Service was great. Definitely recommending to friends
Ive been to the plaza location and had a pleasant experience. This location was significantly under prepared to open. We came in for a birthday with a party of 7 and were able to sit quickly although it was busy. There was only beer and wine listed, when I asked if they had liquor, the response was oh we can do something we have some in the back. Okay. Confused if that was legal or if they had a liquor license yet. We order all food and drinks. First round of drinks comes easy. Second round of drinks had to be asked for multiple times with a few people in our party not ever getting them. Food came out all but one pizza because it had a bubble in it so whatever that means that makes it not edible. All other people had finished eating before the bubble pizza came out. At this point there are only our table a 2 top and a 4 top in the restaurant. When the server was asked about the pizza he said we are busy I point to the nearly empty restaurant. He says, well to go orders. Just seems on an opening weekend, with a kitchen/cooking error, the inside customer experience should be prioritized. The servers tone was not appreciated when he asked us to divide the check and then was surprised we were disputing our late pizza. The pizza was eventually comped after a conversation with the server. In summary, if youre not ready to open. Dont open. Or dont use it as an excuse.
