"Best chicken pot pie anywhere"

Not a quiet place to eat as this restaurant has a very large lunch crowd. The food is fast and good. You order at a counter and generally while you are getting your drinks from the dispenser, your name is called and you pick up your food. If you want a real treat and some great comfort food, go... read more

I do like chicken and I have found things on the menu that I can get behind but mostly it's average. They do no beef (I don't eat it anyway) and do some pork. Their menu is actually pretty good in terms of variety and I eat there from time to time by choice. I've never had a bad meal,... More

Be sure to get here early on a Thursday if you want to make sure you get the chicken and dumplings. The dumplings are only available on Thursday...perfect for a cold and/or rainy day but who am I kidding, I'm there in the heat of the summer too.

This is not really a place for vegetarians... though their roasted vegetables are tasty. The main attraction here is roasted meat... very good roasted meat. The three of us each order a different entrée and shared. One colleague took a bite of my duck and said, "That's duck. I thought I didn't like duck. Wow that is good." And it... More

Very poor execution of Caribbean food. Been there, done that. Both food and service were unimpressive. I would not return as there are many good Cuban and Jamaican places in the Charlotte area.

I had heard about how great this place was and how it had been around for a long time. I think its alright, but don't really understand the rave reviews. In the few times we visited it felt dirty, messy tables, no one seemed to care to clean them off. I can understand that sometimes there is a busy night,... More

salad with shredded pork on top is the best! chinese noodles give it a nice crunch - jalopenas are a nice addition and so is shredded cheese - great price - has booths, tables, outside seating and a new sports bar with tvs - very short wait for food

All four of us were very happy with: half chicken platter; chicken cox queso, and Monterey wraps. Try the hot and very hot salsa's - nice add to wraps. Would love to go back a dz times and try other menu... More

I went there with my son and he advised getting a pork taco and the squash casserole. Yum! This was not fast food, but was good food served quickly and hot. There were all kinds of toppings and sauces to add to the goodness!
