The Queen City of Food: Charlotte

In my year and a half as a “southerner,” I’ve had Charlotte on my list of spots in North Carolina to check out. A few months ago, I had a work event on a Friday in Charlotte and decided to stay the weekend to visit with a friend and eat our way through the city. I’ve never thought of Charlotte as a foodie town, especially not compared to the Instagrammable meals I’ve seen in Ashleville and Charleston, but I was happily surprised to discover that Charlotte has got a lot to offer for foodies. There are some drool-worthy photos in this post, so prepare yourself before scrolling any further for the best salty and sweet of the Queen City of Food: Charlotte, North Carolina.
