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!
This is our second time here, food was great as last time! I wanted to try the Mahi fish tacos, they was amazing! I was surprised how good they tasted. My husband got the cheese burger, he loved it. We sat outside and enjoyed the atmosphere. We will definitely be back next time we visit Charlotte!
I had the pork loin sandwich with pineapple, it was good but the bread was not a great choice for such a heavily loaded juicy sandwich. It sat in the juices and turned really mushy, I thing a sourdough or baguette would have been a better choice. The rest of the food was good, the service was really great and the atmosphere was diner like. Restaurant was clean overall, did not see wc.
Loved the atmosphere- nostalgic 70s/80s diner vibe. Their tables were beautiful, all hand painted it seemed. The random decor was aesthetically pleasing such as stickers covering the entire door out to the patio and white trash license plate hung above the bar. My family & I came across this restaurant on TikTok while in town for Fathers day we werent disappointed. Food was great, no complaints. Our hostess and waitress were very kind and patient. I ordered the kicken chicken taco they were LOADED! I was definitely full after one.
