Good place to go when you want to indulge on a high fat meal. Would be great if they offered more healthy options.

Showmars has a good variety of lunch choices and is normally fast to order and get your food. The food is consistent and reasonably priced for Charlotte. Not my favorite, but good for a quick bite and being able to get in and out faster than some other lunch places.

Showmars have the best flounder in uptown! I've have had many lunches at this location and the service is fast and the food is great! Prices are reasonable.

The Showmars at Charlotte Plaza has fed me breakfast almost every week day since 2009. It is a great, inexpensive breakfast served by friendly staff. They remodeled this location last year, and the new layout is visually pleasing as well as being efficient. Staff is very friendly and has been mostly consistent the entire time I have been a customer.... More

This location in the Charlotte Plaza building (aka Charlotte School of Law building) was remodeled last year, and has a bright and modern architecture. There's a mix of booths and tables, so you can combine tables if you have a large group. I've been to this particular Showmars more times than I can count. You always know what you are... More

Nothing much. It's typical food for a place like this. Not as good as the Greek-type restaurants up north but okay. I won't bother going here again.

This is a diner, so if that isn't your thing stop reading now. As for me, one of the great pleasures of life is a great breakfast at a local non-chain diner. This place checks all the boxes. Clean, friendly and efficient service, comfortable atmosphere, extensive menu, very good food, generous portions and extremely reasonable prices. I have nothing bad... More

We were able to have a HUGE breakfast at Showmars for the two of us for less than a small breakfast meal for one person at the Westin where we had been staying. It was a short pleasant walk from our hotel in downtown Charlotte. The juice was good, but the tea was tepid and the small teapot leaked when... More
