    I LOVE the shrimp & grits. that's the only thing i ever get here. only con is how long the line can be late nights. other than that, this is my favorite after party dining spot!

    Get hashbrowns other than grits. My grits were too thick and mush.Thr bacon could have been better looking the rest, ok. They're not as good as they use to be, but they are always packed.

    If you get the wings they charge $2.00 extra for all flats which the waiter didn't tell me about before placing my order. Let me decide if I want to give you $2.00 bucks for all FLATS!! 😤 Food 👍

    The food is good, but the service is soooo ghetto! Our food barely hit the table and the server was asking if we could cash out because she was ready to go.

    We recommend the chicken and waffles. They are crispy, well-seasoned, and will help sober you up after a long night. Read more

    Chicken and waffles, all the way! Ask for the buffalo sauce they use for the hot wings on the side to kick things up a notch.

    Check out the Chicken and Waffles, but be warned: The chicken is fried chicken WINGS, not a breast or a cutlet. A bit harder to knife+fork the meat on a wing.

  • Creative Loafing Charlotte
    Open 24/7. The menu is predictable with eggs, waffles, burgers and hot dogs. The onion rings, battered and flaky, are standouts. Also serves a pleasing roster of milkshakes, as well as alcohol. Read more

    On some nights, the special is a uniquely prepared burger, on others a regular item with a better price. Read more
