I don't like using the word hate.. but I really hate Firebirds at Northlake.. Really, Really crappy service.. For 12 minutes we waited and no one even came to our table....
The past few times we have been there they have cooked our steaks wrong. Sometimes they even did them wrong the second time.. How do you cook them wrong twice? Not much flavor either... They are very inconsistent with the food.. Never know what you will get.. Watery salad, dry augratin potatoes, over cooked steaks, chicken, very salty tuna (when they have it)
The management is very lacking... G A's don't ever fill up our drinks and the staff is always complaining of working there...
Note to everybody: Do not go to the Northlake location!!..

I've been going to Firebirds for years now. It was the sort of place my family and I would go for birthdays or for other special occasions. The food is always well cooked, and very tasty. I have ordered a number of different things on the menu, but my favorite would have to be the shrimp salad. This restaurant is great for both big and small parties of people. It has a nice atmosphere and every experience has been enjoyable for me. The only down side I can find would be the prices- they are rather high, especially for a college student like me. Its a good place to go to every once in a while. I highly recommend going.

I had a Desert Peach Martini (EXcellent) the Pork Tenderloin and the Pecan green beans. The pork had super flavor! It was smoked then cooked to a dot of pink & the green beans were crisp and very slightly sweet. But.
I arrived with 3 friends at 6/Weds and the music. was. too. loud. Now, I'm no damned granny, I'm 45 and a dancer. At arrival we couldn't hear each other speak seated at a booth halfway between the bar and kitchen. Guess what it was like at 7:30? Managers, when you create an atmostphere with noise, that established noise forces everyone to speak louder to be heard above the din! Personally, I'm pretty certain you're trying to cover up the kitchen noise. Anyway, we politely told Jodie we were nearly yelling at 7:30 (she was super too) and this was not due to any particular party nearby. She understood but intimated that this was normal rush hour noise.
Idiotic. With each entree costing $19 - $26., why am I also obstructed from doing what I CAME THERE TO DO? Eat and TALK. I loved the food and I would come back; your'e right aroud the corner from me... but I will not scream, dammit so wake up.

Every food item I've ordered there, I've enjoyed- onion rings, buffalo meatloaf, everything. It's very busy so either get there early or be prepared to wait. Unfortunately, they have a problem with their draft beers (at least Miller Lite, Blue Moon & Sam Adams and Coors Light before they dropped it) - there's some kind of bad taste in each one. Bottled beer is fine. Just don't get the draft beer and you'll enjoy it!

In my opinion, Firebirds has the best burger in Charlotte. Maybe anywhere. But the key phrase is ""in my opinion"". It also makes a difference whether cost is an issue or not. I've read reviews that claim Hardees or Backyard Burgers is the best. Well, for the price, yes they beat something like Wendys or McDonalds, but that's a whole different category. (In which case Five Guys takes that prize!). But without considering cost, I have to say that the cheeseburgers I've had at Firebirds are second to none. I can't make one as good on MY OWN grill. For a start, because they grind their own beef, they don't have to conform to those stupid NC regulations that prohibit you having your burger cooked medium rare. But for whatever reason, the end result is superb, and worth the $8.95 . One negative though...their fries, in my opinion are perhaps the WORST I've had...they're those horrible clunky steak-fries. (I almost feel like going in with my own bag of fries from Five Guys!! ) But anyway, considering the ambience, AND the fact that you can enjoy a beer with your burger, Firebird is definitely the King of burgers in the Queen City.
