Parking is just ok, we had a short wait to be seated, and the food was fantastic! Everything we ordered was delicious. We will absolutely visit again when in the area. We had the crab puppies, corn dog shrimp basket, and kickin chicken tacos.

While in Charlotte we decided to try Pinky’s Westside. This is DDD #41 for us. Crazy little place with parking for four cars and one handicap. Everyone else has to park in a lot about a block away. It was packed on a Monday night....More
