With not many choices of places to eat besides "fast food" chains in the area, we ended up eating here. I had a Cheese pita sandwich (basically a grilled cheese with pita bread) and "homemade" onion rings. My husband had a Fresh Flounder Platter with cole slaw and fries. It didn't take long to get our order. The food was... More

The gyros were extremely bland and when I mentioned it to the waitress she was rather unresponsive and attempted to make excuses. I .sire this is an isolated incident as the reviews point to happy people with good food. I will.attempt to give them another try just as soon as I get this bad taste out of my mouth.

I had never been to a Showmars before this visit. After placing order at the counter, we seated ourselves. Order number was on placard we placed on our table. Food was brought quickly. The White Cheddar Macaroni and Cheese with chicken and bacon was scrumptious! Hearty serving with pita bread on the side. My companion had the chicken wrap and... More

I always get the fish or fish sandwich. LARGE portion of fish at a great price. Tea is good and so are the french fries. All around good meal. The hamburgers are also good.

I love to stop at Showmars when traveling. The food and service is always great and fast. I stop there because I will not be disappointed and it doesn't take a lot of my driving time.

We have eaten here several times and I guess hope springs eternal. We keep thinking that it will be better, after choosing different menu items..but not so far. World's Best Fish..it isn't.

Was so glad that they open a Showmars on 321 in Gastonia. I eat at the one in Matthews and mint hill a lot. The food is really good and I don't think I've ever had a bad meal. The fish and shrimp plate, platter are really big. I take 1/2 home for another meal. The service at this one... More

Just visited this location it has always been a favorite of mine, but with this trip I noticed they have increased their prices wayyyy to much for what you get. With their new prices I would rather go to Texas Roadhouse for a steak and salad. Sorry but they over priced themselves for what you get.
