Title: Suggested location for dinner at the Pioneer Bowl
Post by: Onnidan Webmaster on October 29, 2006, 08:43:00 PM
"I was in Charlotte this weekend and after checking with some friends from the area, they suggested that we consider the Charleston House as a location for dinner during the Pioneer Bowl.

Most folk who visit the Queen City consider McDonald‘s as the place to go, but that facility is no longer operating in its original form.

The Charleston House is African-American owned and provides an excellent menu.  

Following the tradition of Paschals that we visited at the Pioneer Bowl a few years ago . . . Friday night at 7:00pm seems like a good time, unless you would prefer Saturday after the game.

Charleston House, 3120 the Plaza, Charlotte, NC 28205, 704-334-9995.

Your feedback is requested."

"My family ate at the Charleston House for the first time this weekend.  The meal was excellent but it would be a bit pricey for some.  Customer service was also excellent.  The owner greeted each customer when they came in and visited each table during the meal.  I liked that.  If you like seafood I would suggest the Seafood Pasta or the Crab cakes. Orginally, I am from the Tidewater area and good seafood in North Carolina is hard to find.  The crab cakes get a BIG thumbs UP.  My family will definitely visit again...."

El Jay,

Of course.....I will handle it, this time.     :cool:      :yes:     But you will owe me!!     :p


VSU Tro,

Even if the prices have increased from what is listed on the menu, they prices still aren‘t bad.    :no:    :shrug:    For those who do not want to participate, they do not have to show up."

I hate to say it but those are lunch prices at any decent restaurant up in these parts. You can‘t get out for under $25 for a dinner entree...   :no:  

Nice pics... :yes:  

Count me in Webmaster...   :D  

Of course I‘ve got you my child...just have your face in the place.    :p      :cool:

Can‘t make Friday night.  Can we have an after game meal/meeting after the game?

"I‘ll do some checking to see about a special section for Onnidan Posters.

It will be hard to top the GREAT tailgate affair that Jaimac helped organize outside the Georgia Dome.

Not sure how many local Charlotte folks are into hosting so we‘ll shoot for a sit down, perhaps both nights."

If price is a concern then you guys might want to try Primes buffet off Billy Graham Pkwy not far from the old Mcdonalds cafeteria. Some might say its in the hood but I suggest this spot because I know you can reserve sections ahead of time. The food is pretty good for a buffet.

"Thanks for the suggestion, kwin2.

Maybe Primes one night and Charleston House on another.

Buffet one night and sit down and order on another."

Charleston House is an excellent choice and we really should patronize them. Last year they prepared the drummettes I took over to the Tuskegee hospitality suite and they didn‘t charge anything.  
They are actually one of my clients so if you all definitely want to go there I can make the reservations.

"Dex,

I need to go there regardless. You know I‘m greedy...   :D        :D    

I‘m staying at the Doubletree. Is it far from there?

Yes, I can vouch for those wings (yummy, I was definitely licking my whiskers and paws   :yes:  ) - and they did them on the spur of the moment.  Dex was kind enough to deliver them to us.  :hug:  


Webmaster,

Can we please do the Charleston House on Sat p.m.? I‘d much rather spend more money and be served and I‘d much rather patronize AA businesses when possible   :yes:      :D   ...I‘m really not a big fan of buffet houses but I‘ll go if that is what is decided...   :("

"Dex,

Can you make reservations for a party of 20? at the Charleston House for Saturday night?

We would like to support your client and eat well at the same time.

Since folk may be traveling on Friday, we‘ll leave that night open and go for the Charleston House on Saturday night."

I‘m trying to. I just had an outpatient procedure done and I‘m not sure if I‘ll be able to sit through an entire game.

"Include me for the Charleston House on Saturday night.  

DEX,

Can we increase the reservations number?  If more than 20 folks want to go will there be a problem?

Outpatient procedure huh DEX??  hmmmmmmmmm!!    :D     :lol:"
