My wife and I were passing through Charlotte, and stayed one night in a hotel adjacent to the airport. I scanned through TripAdvisor for restaurants in our vicinity and came up with this place.

The food is awesome in this restaurant. It was much over my expectations! It was one of the best steaks I've ever had! The staff is nice, however I highly recommend to go there in the less busy hours.

I enjoyed the variety on lunch menu. The server was very nice and made sure we had everything we needed. They pile the food on your plate you will have some to take home. Food was great!! Wings excellent!

I had great food, Buffalo wings were deliciously flavoured. And for the ribs, they were fabulous. Great recommendation from the reception of the new Holiday Inn express.

Staying overnight in Charlotte & found this among some fast food restaurants. Don't let the decor fool you. This place is good. We had the cowboy 20 oz rib eye & the honey barbque ribs. Perfectly cooked & you got two sides with that as well as warm,fresh bread. The soup starter was good as well. We took a desert... More

7 people, separate checks..... Absolutely perfect! Bonita was amazing! Friendly knowledgeable and fun. It felt a little 90's in decor and 60's in music but.... A fun trip back!

Was debating between here and beef & bottle for a date night. We had stopped by a local distillery and wanted something more than bar food. First sign was that the parking lot was fairly empty and so was restaurant. I am always suspicious when a steakhouse has more non beef items on the menu than the beef options. Beer... More
