We were looking for something different and stopped by the Taphaus on a Saturday afternoon. We all had a variety of items from Buffalo chicken flatbread, steak sandwich and I ordered the Nashville Hot Chicken. Beer selection was great and the staff was fantastic. My only real issue, I’m a Nashville Hot kinda guy and every time I’ve had this dish at other places, it’s dredged in it. The sandwich simply had a dollop of sauce along with a white bbq sauce on it. Certainly didn’t need a white bbq sauce on it and if you simply dipped the chicken in the hot sauce, it would have been perfect! Again, good food, beers and wait staff amazing! More

We enjoyed getting Granny (102 years young) out the house. We are new to Charlotte and this is our first time at this TGI Fridays. Not a good idea for Christmas Day. Granny wanted to know where the food was 🤣 Overall we enjoyed it. We got home and realized we forgot Granny’s meds and had to drive back 25 mins and the staff was nice had it waiting at front desk.

Discover Charlotte

North Carolina is a state divided when it comes to pork barbecue, but in Charlotte, the two sides of the great debate meet. In various barbecue joints around the city, you can find both the vinegar-based sauce that's popular in the eastern region of North Carolina as well as the more tomato-y option those in the western half of the state prefer. Fried chicken with crispy golden skin and plenty of plump meat is another Charlotte favorite. Coleslaw, rolls and a cold glass of tea (the sweeter, the better) often round out this traditional Southern dish. In contrast to the down-home fare that dominates much of the city's food scene, there are several Vietnamese restaurants around town that serve pho, yellow pancakes and other traditional offerings.
