Good food, good service

Had tried Dish once before as we have family in the area who rave about the place. Not really impressed the first time. 2nd time around was better. Chicken fried steak was good according to my husband, chicken and dumplings with green beans was good and the eggplant sandwich on pita was also... read more

If you are looking for home cooked soul food this is the place. Every time we are in the area we stop here, the food is so good and fresh! I always get the chicken and dumplings and the potato poppers. The best part is for two people, sharing an appetizer and nothing getting a drink it is under $30!

We visited Dish because it was recommended, however we found the food only average. This was disappointing since the person who recommended it raved about it. I had the blackened chicken breast with macaroni and cheese and green beans. The green beans were best. The chicken was very bland and so was the Mac and cheese. Nothing special. My husband... More

Went with few friends for dinner, great value for money and good southern style food. The ambience is bit different but its a nice location on central, so eat there and then hang out around the bars in the area

Visiting Lake Norman and decided to make a trip to Charlotte to go to DISH. Definitely worth the trip! The food was great! Several of us got the pot roast that was recommended by our waiter. It was so good two of us considered getting a second order to take home. Tender and very flavorful. Also got the chicken and... More

I enjoyed the ambience at this little place. The smell is great. It's not all foodie, it is like someone's home kitchen. There are postcards at the front desk which is nice. I had the pot roast was very good but the mashed potatoes were weird. My son had the shrimp but he didn't like them because they were chewy.... More

Went here with a family friend because we are DDD buffs. They were out of deviled eggs so we didn't get to try those, but I did try the salmon hoagie. I thought the salmon patties were a little too thin for the amount of roll but the taste was really good. I also had the smoky limas and they... More

The food here is pretty good. My husband I first came after an episode of Drivers Diners And Dives. Love the Salmon Cakes!!! Parking can be tight especially on a Saturday.

Went here tonight with my husband and a friend for the first time. Was really wanting to try the deviled eggs, but they don't have them right now. The food was great! I had the chicken and dumplings with collards. The collards were a little tough, but still good. Husband had the smokehouse burger and said it was really good.... More

We decided to eat here last night and were very excited after reviewing the menu which consists mainly of southern, soul food. There was no organization as we walked in the front door which is right by the food expo window and we felt very in the way while we waited over 5 minutes to be greeted. Once we were... More
