The Tryon House Restaurant (off of Woodlawn, at the light rail): A Somewhat Hidden Treasure!!
I can't say enough good things about the Tryon House Restaurant (off of Woodlawn, on Exmore). For over five years now, on an average of once a week, our family has driven 20 miles round trip, to eat there.
The food is always great; the servers are very friendly; the portions are very generous; the prices are very good; and, the place is always super clean!! They offer a variety of home cooked / Greek style food that is about as good as it gets -- with wonderful meats, fresh vegetables, and salads.
A group of about 20 of our closest friends always go there together to celebrate birthdays, as they are so friendly, accommodating, and consistently serve great food at a great price.
The Tryon House was highly recommended to me by a very good friend of mine, who was a police officer in Charlotte at that time -- who was very familiar with the eating establishments in the South Charlotte area. Since then, we have noticed, time and time again, that ""Charlotte's finest"" / the police officers are, indeed, some of the Tryon House's most regular customers, as they know, from experience, where you should, or shouldn't, go for a decent meal in the area.
