Burger + Sushi = Burgushi!!

We went based on a local recommendation while at South Park mall. We walked over because it’s basically in the mall parking lot. Beer selection is excellent (happy to have Founders on draught). It’s a mouth watering experience.

We had the The Pitsburgoo-shi Sandwich ($18) - Slices of seared rare seasoned filet mignon topped with a pile of navel pastrami and french fries, melted Provolone and truffle cheeses, and red onions. Served with creamy Dijon on grilled spring roll wrapper "buns" filled with kani and sushi rice. Our side was spicy Thai cucumbers.

We also had The Nature Boy's WOOOOO–shi BuffalOOOOO–shi Roll ($17) - Brought to The Cowfish by The Man himself, Ric Flair’s creation includes sautéed chipotle bison, fried green tomato, grilled onions and feta cheese rolled inside, then coated with crispy tempura flakes. The roll is topped with fresh green tomato, chipotle aioli, diced tomato and red onion, and thinly sliced jalapeño pepper.

It's nice when the dining experience and food are both top notch. Amazing variety of food - you would be hard pressed to not find tons of things to eat from the extensive menu.

Okay not the best place you will ever eat, but we loved it !! Even waiting was not too bad as you waited for your fish to be caught to tell you it was time to be seated. Too much to explain. You will get it when you are there.

The varitiety of food was wonderful. Honestly so many choices. Our food was very tasty and the portions were large. My wife had a salad that could have fed three people. We had the coconut onion rings and they were perfect.

It is not cheap , but not terrible by any stretch. All most all the beef burgers could be subbed for grilled chicken, turkey or veggie. We had two vegetariens with us and they loved their veggie sushi.

Next time in Charlotte will for sure go back.

Loved the concept. Great Burgers and Great Sushi. Do try the Hambergushi: At least one roll, we tryed the Bison roll. Those that had Burgers were Very Happy, as were those that ordered the Sushi. Generous Portions. The wait staff could be trained to be more efficent. The hostess and seating staff were horribly disorganized and seemed in-experienced. After we were seated, it was a great time. Would return here whenever we are back in Charlotte area :))

really like this place but it gets crowded so expect to wait. Great sushi creations and Burgushi - very creative burgers with sushi in them. I have eaten here 7 times and have gotten the what's shakin' tuna bacon sandwich 6 times in a row. I finally broke down and got the fusion bento box for a change of pace. I was not disappointed. I LOVE the wacky art decor on the walls, place could use more bathroom capacity but that may be my only (minor) gripe. How could you NOT like a place with excellent sushi and Pabst Blue Ribbon Tallboys? I sometimes go here multiple times during my 3-4 day trips to Charlotte.
