Great service! Portions are out of this world good. If you get the fried chicken, ask for honey and mix the hot sauce in and slather the chicken with it. Only wish that the gravy had more sausage in it, other phenomenal food and service. Gets busy around noon on Sundays so be prepared for a little wait.
Really cool little spot right at the epicenter. Be prepared to wait cause it does get busy. Food is good and reasonable on pricing. Even though it was super busy it came out pretty quick. Styled after the 50s so you can't miss it.
Tried this places because it was close and convenient to my hotel. I will start with the good stuff. The waiter was new but very friendly and the service was pretty good. Started with the chocolate milkshake, it was very good! The rest was kind of a mixed experience. I got the burger, fries, and onion rings. Burger was pretty average, I thought the fries were good, but the onion rings were horrible. Rings were very dry, very little breading and really inedible. Even after explaining that to the waiter and only eating 2 of them, I was still charged for them. We also got the strip steak, biscuit, and Mac and cheese. Steak was okay, a bit tough but otherwise okay. The Mac and cheese and biscuit on the other hand were really bad. They were very old, dry, and we couldn't eat either of them.
Absolutely delicious, and great atmosphere. I love the old school vibe. The grits are above reproach. Good God!!! Me and my family will be traveling to Charlotte frequently and the Red Eye Diner is officially a MANDATORY STOP! Until next time Red Eye!
Nothing bad to say about this place at all. Ate here twice while visiting Charlotte on a birthday trip for my husband and his brother. The food here is AMAZING!!! Nice country cooking with a 50s diner setting. The chicken is cooked just right, the greens are seasoned to perfection and the Mac and Cheese taste just right. The breakfast is even better. So many many choices on the menu that you can't go wrong with anything you get. Ms. Rita was really cool, her personality was very welcoming. Amanda was our server Friday night, she was on point with everything. Ate there again Sunday morning our server Duece was an awesome server too very attentive. I will definitely be going back here when I visit Charlotte again.
