Dish is located in an unassuming, near downtown area of Charlotte. This is the type of place that has a plain atmosphere, but you go for the food. This is good 'ole downhome Southern cooking. As one companion noted, they must have a bunch of grandmas back in the kitchen -- cooking. The Country Fried Steak was obviously homemade --... More

Went here with my brother after a long day. The food was really well made and clearly had been thought through, both from a presentation perspective and for taste. I had the chicken livers, which were excellent. Fun atmosphere.

This place has great food. It is very much like down-home cooking with a flair. I would suggest sticking to the more classic southern dishes as that is where they shine. The pimento cheese is great. The fried pickles are amazing! Can't wait to go back!

not so great. Went to DISH because they were on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives. Wouldn't go back. I had the chicken and dumplings and I think they were nuked. The bowl was hot but the food was less than luke warm. The cole slaw was off but could not put my finger on it. It wasn't soured, I think... More
