We were staying in Charlotte for one night (after a week in MB) as we were flying home out of CLT. It was about 7pm, and with a hungry wife and two young daughters in tow I had to choose something fast. Jumped on Yelp & TripAdvisor and his place caught my attention. I booked a 8:30pm reservation via OpenTable & I'm so glad I did.
Located conveniently in downtown Charlotte, it was easy to park ($5 - BARGAIN) & we only had to walk a block or so to the restaurant. We got there at 8, and once there, we were greeted & seated immediately - which was great because we were 30 minutes early! So far, so good.
To be honest, the food was terrific. Steak tips cooked to melt-in-your-mouth perfection, veggies cooked properly and everything else - biscuits, drinks, etc. - seemed to pass muster with the girls. Our server, Jacob, was attentive and friendly, and that goes a long way.
In addition to the great food and service, the whole concept of The King's Kitchen is amazing and makes you feel good, as well. It's nice to know that your hard-earned money is being used to help the poor and homeless in Charlotte. Everywhere you looked in the restaurant, there were large photographs of people who benefit from the good deeds of the amazing people who work here. We left full and happy, and our girls learned an important life lesson about charity and kindness. And for all of that, we will be back.
