My wife and I love diners. Moving to Charlotte we wanted to try the Midnight Diner uptown. We split some cheeseburger sliders before we went to the Mint museum and they were great. They were diner style, freshly made burgers with fresh French fries and our server Dave was awesome. He let us relax, didnt hover and was charismatic and cool. Thanks Dave! The only caveat was the bathroom which I didnt enter until the end was really dirty. I am glad I didnt enter it until after I ate because I dont think I wouldve eaten there with the bathroom that unclean. However, I believe because its the end of year that maybe its been busy and hopefully that will be fixed. So, want a diner feel without it being Waffle House? Go to midnight diner. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner all day. Just make sure you check the restroom to make sure its clean for piece of mind.
Not worth the wait! I decided to visit after a long night out, after a suggestion of my valet driver, I decided to do take out. After 10 minute wait to order I was shortly accused of cutting the line however the person in front and behind me both indicated that was not the case. This really upset me. The server didn't even see the line, felt borderline discriminatory. I continued to wait. I ordered a burger fries etc. I was told that wasn't enough ( not sure why someone was telling me how much I can eat). The wait was 10 minutes which was good. The burger looked delicious and came with a huge load of fries. They looked amazing. The burger was good, seemed to lack seasoning however the fries made the combo mouth watering. The cashier was kind to me and I gave her a tip. The take out package was lacking ketchup, mustard, etc utensils and napkins.
Believe the hype! First of all, they are only closed for 90 minutes a day, so shame on you if you miss it! We started with the onion rings--spectacular! The shrimp and grits are the real deal. The spaghetti had PLENTY of sauce for the noodles, and the wings with French toast were a delightful coupling. Of course, I added hash browns All The Way, which were soooo satisfying. Our server was amazing and kept the coffee pouring. We went out of our way to try this spot and it was all on point!
Had a great experience here. The food was excellent, pictures below, and the staff were friendly. The food came out quickly too. Plenty of food for your money especially since you will struggle to pay more than 11 dollars a person. Deserts are epic too. A must visit whether passing through or a local. Open 6am - 430am!
Visiting from Kansas City and this is the BEST place we ate hands down!! The staff went out of their way to seat our party of 9, food was relatively quick and DELICIOUS!! I will admit I was skeptical when I saw the building.....but I saw a line of people waiting to get in.....and I see why!! VERY reasonable pricing.....and did I mention the food was AWESOME!!
