This place is awesome. We went once and liked it, decided to try it again and it was awesome! Not sure which is better the good or the service. The place is also has a great local NC beer selection. We will definitely be back time and time again.
We visited this restaurant on a Sunday afternoon at two o'clock, thinking we would get seated right away, it being after the lunch rush. We weren't. We waited 20 minutes to be seated, but every second was worth the wait. This tiny diner is wonderfully eclectic and unique. The staff were friendly and outgoing. The food was incredible!! I mean incredible! We started with the fried pickles (crunchy and lightly flavored), sweet potato fries, and best of all? The Ding Dong Chicken Sandwich. It was this delightful mix of baked chicken, crunchy peanut butter, honey-cilantro coleslaw, and Sriracha. Hands down the best sandwich I've ever had. Try this place out! It will not disappoint.
Delicious unjque food, good service and great drinks. A must stop if in the Charlotte area. After being on dine ins, diners and dives multiple times, I decided to check out this place. The burgers are amazing, esleciy some of their more well known burgers like the "White Trash Burger" or the "Pterodactyl" and other specialties like the corn dog shrimp (on Food Network) and Greg's Pickles. The seating is casual and comfortable, whether inside or out. The wait staff is friendly and prompt, since there is often a line, they have become very efficient at what they do.
Amazing diner food! I can taste why they were featured on Diners Drive-in and Dives. The food quality is awesome. The place is always packed and always worth it!
