Starting to think about next weekend. Any folks familiar with Charlotte have any restaurant suggestions? I will need something somewhat kid friendly since my nephews will be there (13 and 12 years old).
Well that explains your point of view more to me and makes sense knowing where you're coming from. I guess just keep trying places and hopefully you find some you like. At least the local brewing scene is realling coming along if you're a craft beer fan.
oh yeah, brew scene it pretty good. And I have not really been out much here, just gone to a handful of places coworkers have recommended. I have yet to even venture to the north side of town since I arrived. There is some decent Thai here though.
I'll second this suggestion. midwood is also a good BBQ place. That and Jim N Nick's are my favorite here. If you like fish camps, look up Captain Steve's in Fort Mill, off Carowinds Blvd. Best and most popular one in the area.

cutigerbob® Man the Diamond used to have the best dang chicken and dumplings you ever had on Wednesdays back the day, couple that with stewed apples over sweet cornbread, um um that was some gooooood eatin!
As posted earlier Pinkys, Midwood Smokehouse and Macs Speed shop are all good. There is Mellow mushroom downtown and close to the stadium. The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery has great food and good beer, also is very kid friendly.

The World Famous Open Kitchen. West Morehead. Good pizza.
If you are in town before 3 pm Friday (not open weekends) the BEST burger joint is Brooks sandwich house on N Brevard, Diamond is a place I could vouch for back in the day for lunch/dinner too. Mac's Speedshop has solid smokehouse food and good craft beer but I prefer Midwood smokehouse, multiple locations. I like Wolfman and Brixx for pizza. Duckworths has really good cheesesteaks and other bar food, tv's, great craft beer selection....depends what your looking for...either way have a great trip to my old stomping grounds!
Prices Chicken Coop is definitely the best fried chicken in town. You can call ahead and pick it up if you are tailgating. Since you have the kids, you may want to try Pikes Old Fashion Soda Shop. It is in South End, not too terribly far from the stadium. Great burgers and comfort food. Milk shakes for the kids and beer for adults.
