“So good !”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Wonderful food and their shakes are excellent - yummy chocolate malt. Chicken with rice soup, turkey sandwich, potatoes, and grilled cheese with tomato - good comfort food, but really good. Will be a regular customer from now on !

“now that's a buffalo chixen sandwhich”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

i love anything buffalo so when I ordered the buffalo chicken sandwhich on my last trip to Pike's I was very impressed! It is HUGE! I couldnt even finish it. It was so fresh too! Very impressed. I was also in love with the ice tea - it was def made by someone from the South ;)

“Decent, nothing special”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Enjoyed the atmosphere. Had a chocolate shake and was not impressed. I've had better at Steak-N-Shake. Portions were large. I think the patio would be super in the warmer months. I will return when I'm in Charlotte again.

“Greek salad was decent and huge and the malt was tasty - service superb”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

The atmosphere was great and the service some of the best I have had in a while and we stayed chatting for hours, though it wasn't crowded and we tipped to cover the time. The Greek salad was large and fresh; however, it lacked the spice and tang of typical Greek salads and no pepperoncini's or vinegar tang that my taste buds were set upon when I ordered it.

The vanilla malt was delicious and served with the same level of service as the salads had been. The exceptional service, friendly staff, nostalgic atmosphere and the history that lingered in the air for this Charlotte-native provides the impetus to go again and try other more typical soda shop fair another time.

“It's just what the name says”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Pike's Old Fashioned Soda Shop is, well, a modern twist on an old fashioned soda shop. Lots of people take their kids to Pike's. The milkshakes are awesome. The food is what you would expect to find in a soda shop with a full menu.
