One of the best burger and hot dog joints in Charlotte. Very "hip" vibe. They've added outdoor seating. They also have tacos and other various dishes. All house made, delicious goodness. I had the Mammoth, Westside Style and Hush Pups. I had a food coma that afternoon. If you like this type of food, you will LOVE this place!

This is a must go to place for food. Great atmosphere and great staff always making sure everything was good or needed anything. I went at 230pm and was able to get a seat right away for two people. The later it gets the longer the wait will be. If you don't mind waiting, night time is a great atmosphere but if you are there for the food go earlier. There is nothing bad to stay about Pinky's except the food and service is worth going with a great variety on their menu. Highly recommended.
The hubby and I were in Charlotte and l in need of some good food and drinks. We landed at Pinky's after doing a quick search and was so glad we came. GREAT food and GREAT drinks. My hubby created his own burger and I had the white trash burger. Great fries and crab puppies! It was all delish!!! We chilled and ate and drank for hours! The service was great too with a cool atmosphere! DEFINITELY going back. It's now one of our top spots if not the top!
Great atmosphere with fantastic music. Had the vegan pimento chili fries, white bean hummus and beyond burger. The burger, hummus and vegan chili were amazing, the vegan pimento cheese not so much. Great staff. Food came out quickly so I would steer away from appetizers unless youre there during a busy time/day. Theres like 3 parking spaces in front of the restaurant so just head straight to the back area where theres plenty of parking.
Wonderful atmosphere! Nice, clean, and eclectic! Expect a wait, this place is worth standing in line for! Variety of menu items, try the corn dog shrimp! Split them, share them, or whatever, just try them! My wife and I got the mammoth burger and Velvet Elvis with pimento cheese waffle fries! Will be back!
