As much as I enjoy this SoulFood, the service has gone down hill. There is always one very friendly host but it doesn't make up for the time I loose when I come in to order. My last three visits have been very irritating. I ONLY ordered chicken. As I sat to wait for my order because the phone lines... More

My family visited La'Wans private dining room for a repast. The food was very good. There were also a lot of choices on the menu. However, the best part was our server, Furman. He was a straight comedian and we needed that after attending the memorial service of our loved one. I will definitely go back to La'Wans when I... More

Soul food in a restaurant is hard to find. Found La'wan's accidentally. Grateful for the freshly cooked hot dinner. Ordered fried whiting with rice- gravy, collard greens & corn bread. The hubby ordered fried dark meat chicken, cole slaw, collard greens & fried chicken liver. The corn bread, fried fish and fried chicken were delicious. Liked the collard greens. Fried... More

It's hard to find good soul food, so when we come to Charlotte, La Wan's is a MUST. Hubby gets country fried steak, and I LOVE the pork chops. We tried the wingettes this time that were hot. The sauce was so good but will not burn your mouth. Done just right and not dry. Besides the great food, you... More

The fried catfish, whiting, shrimp were good. Chicken wings not so much. Sides about the same, cabbage, greens and yams were good but potato salad, macaroni and cheese just ok. Banana pudding for dessert needed more wafers. I would go back and try other things but was hoping for a home run.

I found this place on the fly and made short notice reservations bringing 20 out of town guest to eat here after reading their great reviews. We were glad we came to La'wan's for dinner! It was incredible! We had a very attentive server named Ferman and the food tasted great. Out of 20 guest there were no complaints! I... More

I was excited when I was told that there was good southern food in Charlotte and suggested Lawans. Unfortunately the food was bland with no flavor and similar to cafeteria food. It does the job if you need a hot meal, but not what I would considered good flavored home cooking.

I love collard greens and good fried chicken. There is an art to making both and they have it down pat! Really loved the food and don't forget dessert before you leave. I saw that there is a buffet served during certain hours, but we missed it. So, I can't really comment on it, but if what is on it... More

When we arrived at 11:45 a.m. the buffet was only half set-up so we ordered from the menu. I ordered the Fried Chicken plate with 2 sides (cole-slaw and crinkley fries from the grocery freezer section). For $10.00, I got a tiny chicken thigh and even smaller drum-stick (so small I couldn't help but laugh - that chicken must have... More
