I feel like I should make one of these posts (ATLEAST) once a month. When I sit down to jot some of the best places I've visited lately, I practically have a brain dump. It's interesting to me how many people I know go to the same 6-10 places to eat (sometimes I am guilty of this too). Either way, here is one of my favorites.
King's Kitchen: This is a wonderful, home cookin' kind of place. One of my favorite things about it is the fact that 100% of the profits from sales goes to feed the poor in Charlotte.
Jim Noble, the restaurant owner is committed and passionate about giving back to his community on a daily basis. Their vision: “The King’s Kitchen” is a ministry operating as a not for profit restaurant to raise funds to feed the poor and to train and equip those previously unemployable in the restaurant trade." How incredible is that? Jim also holds a worship service M-F at 3pm for anyone in the community. Many homeless, poor and troubled locals find peace and hope at these services.
My recommendations include the mac and cheese, butter beans, southern style fried chicken, meatloaf, and pot roast. Really, anything on the menu is delicious.
Lunch- Monday-Friday 11a-2:30p
Dinner- Monday-Saturday 5p until ? (doesn't say on the website, but I'm assuming at least 10p; don't quote me on that though).
Eat your heart out at this uptown Charlotte restaurant out ASAP! :)
