JJ’s Red Hots - Uptown
- Open Now
I visited this place while in Charlotte for the first time and the service was okay although when we received our fries and onion rings they were cold.The manager replaced them with a smile along with a promotional coin for the next visit. I'm a Chef so the level of service and the taste of food is important to me and I was expecting to be wowed due to the location, friendliness and cleanliness of the establishment but the food was average. I'm a Chef so to others this place may rank as a 5 so don't take my word experience it for yourself because my expectation of food is higher due to me being a Chef.
Showed up for the grand opening, they were giving away free signatures hot dogs! I got the Uptown Downtown, and it was great. Bacon and chili is always good in my book. The prices are reasonable and the place is fun and inviting. Good luck to them with the new location!
The dogs are good, but at over $5 each after tax and tip, it's not something I'll eat too often more or less just as a change of pace. That being said it's not too expensive for uptown, and while the chili man's dogs are better and a dollar or two cheaper, he's all the way over on the other side of uptown and usually has a 30 minute wait. So if you don't want to walk and don't mind spending $5 for a dog give 'em a try.
Fantastic hot dogs and tots! Got the Nashville Hot and was not disappointed (although a bit difficult to eat.) Wish they had an outdoor dining area, although we just carried ours over to the park to eat (had dogs with us.)
This place was okay. Went for $2 hot dogs on Tuesday. Cashier rung us up wrong. I didn't even notice until after I got my hotdogs but I didn't say anything because I didn't want to be "that guy". Also they didn't have cheerwine to drink. The one in dilworth does and it's more spacious to sit at.
