The Grinning Mule
This place was a huge WOW!! It really gives a new definition to a dive bar. It's small, with a small staff that is talented and capable in both the kitchen and bar. If you should visit, I hope your bartender is Katie. She is a very talented mixologist and friendly. The manager is out in the open and appeared to be more than happy to fill in a gap when there was need of it. It has an urbanite vibe, the ladies should love the decor. Imitation crystal Chandlers make it female inviting.
Came here for the Wed night special 12oz prime rib for $24. Drinks and appetizers came out quickly and were fantastic. Waiter was attentive. The prime rib was A+. Overall 5 stars and a great experience. Highly recommend.
I didn't know what to expect and I was blown away! This is a tapas place so all the food is made to be sharable. Outside of a grilled Cesar Salad, the food was on point. Be sure to order the Bulgogi anything because that meat was so tender. Also, THE BEST OLD FASHIONED I HAVE EVER HAD IN MY LIFE!!!
HIGHLY IMPRESSED. I just moved to the back to Charlotte and was introduced to this place by a friend and WOW. I dont think I have one bad thing to say about the Grinning Mule. They sat us and served us quickly. Clean, cute, and great relaxing music. The staff was extremely friendly! In fact, our server Matthew, literally went across the street to buy us a CONDIMENT for my food that they currently didnt have. Im not sure if the service could get much better than that!! Had to say something as Ive never experienced such great service before and I even have a background in customer service. Come check this place out it will not disappoint!
The food was amazing. The food combinations in the dishes complimented the over all taste. I savored every bite.
