5 of Charlotte's Oldest Restaurants you must try.

February 13, 2022


What is it about a good ole restaurant that has been in business to spite growth and hard times. I'll tell you what it is, It is some of the best food you may eat, besides you Mommas and Grandmas.

If nostalgic is your thing, you are going to right at home with these classics.

1961-Pressley Park Restaurant

740 Pressley Rd, Charlotte, NC 28217

Pressley Park is a classic small town restaurant in the middle of the  city. The staff knows most of the customers name by heart and the food instills a comfort like you are at Grandma's.

1926- Green's Lunch

309 W 4th St, Charlotte, NC 28202

Iconic Uptown hot dog counter that's been around almost 100 years. Everyday around lunchtime the restaurant gets slammed with everyone from construction workers to bankers looking for a quick bite.

We need new restaurants, and we need old places too. 
I love the nostalgic old diners and restaurants, the thoughts of eating there with my family growing up and feeling a moment of sadness at the thought of one of these Charlotte icons closing. Enjoy them while we can, with the boom that is going on you never know when the day will come and they will close the doors forever.

Do you have a favorite Charlotte restaurant, new or old?

Cheers until next time,
