I stopped in for shrimp and grits and some ice tea. They just don't miss a beat. The food is excellent and the staff is friendly. I will go back again and again when in the downtown Charlotte area.

A superior example of a fifties diner. The staff is unbelievably friendly and professional. The food, wow. Over two visits we had “the bubba” for breakfast. Amazing! Awesome biscuits and gravy. For dinner we had the shrimp and grits and the fried chicken.
