LDR Char Pit

This past week Mac D and I decided to head down to Charlotte for lunch.  We settled on one of the few places open year round, the LDR Char Pit.  We each ordered a cheeseburger, fries, and a drink.  The burger was juicy and delicious.  Also, they weren't skimpy on the toppings.  I had mine on a hard roll, and Mac D went for the soft roll.  

The fries were fantastic.  They were fried a nice golden brown, and they were the perfect thickness.  The outside was crispy with a hot, flavorful, potatoey center.  Get the fries.

They also have a self serve toppings bar with relish, onions, two kinds of pickles, and their own take on hot sauce.  Curiously, it's like some sort of Buffalo/Rochester hybrid sauce with meat, but in a red, more relishy sauce.

The ambiance is nice with a vintage, lake front feel.  The staff was very friendly, and the meal was quite good.  The total bill came to around $17, which seems about right for what we had.  Everything was good, but nothing was spectacular.  I give LDR Char Pit a 4, so if you're in the area, give it a try instead of hitting one of the more pricey newer establishments.

Also, check out Charlotte in the winter.  The lake looks pretty cool.  Also, there are a handful of neat flea markets in Charlotte proper, so after lunch, drive the mile back to the center of town and give those places a look-see.
