We went to Leroy Fox on a Saturday night and were seated immediately with a reservation. It was our first time attending and we were a little taken aback by the number of kids and the noise level.
However, we have yet to find a sit-down restaurant serving good fried chicken in Charlotte so thought it would be worth the try. The food was just average. The chicken was good and moist, but the sides were not. The mashed potatoes and gravy were lukewarm, tasteless and gummy. The side salad I had was average. My husbands sweet potato tater tots were also barely warm and not crisp. Generally, if you don't have kids, not sure its worth the money...because the restaurant is not cheap!
It may have been our 6:15pm dinner slot, but the restaurant was filled with families with young kids. The wait staff did a nice job working around and over the little ones, but it was less of what I expected for a "cool neighborhood sports bar restaurant/bar".
Great server, good food, loud restaurant so it was hard to hear table conversation.
Great for brunch!
I highly recommend Leroy Fox. We are new to the Charlotte area and recently went there for Sunday brunch. Make sure you have reservations via Open Table as this place is hopping. We had wonderful specialty Mojitos and great brunch items.
Grilled chicken dumplings were delicious. Wait staff friendly and attentive. Sat outside on patio which was a great place to just sit, relax, and chat.
Great food. Great service. Such a wonderful patio to enjoy the pleasant Fall weather. So grateful to have this restaurant in our neighborhood! Our out of town guests couldn't say enough about how much they enjoyed our brunch on the patio!
We thoroughly enjoyed Leroy Fox's food and atmosphere. Definitely try the chicken - it is not your Momma's fired chicken, and the dinner special was also tasty - a New Orleans style gumbo.
Suggest reservations. Will definitely go back on next trip to Charlotte.
Great food, variety and drinks! Not for the health conscious but super yummy!
Great food and service
