Pinky’s opened in November of 2010 in the former home of Triple G Automotive. The signature red white and blue VW on the roof makes the building stand out at the busy Charlotte intersection. The interior has several original artwork piece for sale and a couple of coin operated games if you have to wait for a table. There was not a wait time today, but I did return to the KISS pinball machine for a game after lunch.
I had checked out the menu online and today was in the mood for a good burger. Pinkys offers several burger options with plenty of condiments to choose. I built a five-ounce beef burger with pepper-jack cheese, chilli and slaw. The burger had more than enough of the toppings went it arrived. I had to use a fork to eat most of it, but this wasnt a problem to me. The burger was very good and I also enjoyed the extra chili that found its way out of the bun. I ordered a side of waffle fries that were also very delicious.
If you have read previous posts you know that I am a fan of sweet tea. Pinkys scores a A+ on their tea. I could have drank a whole pitcher.
Pinky’s location is easy to get to from I-77, I-85, I-277, and just about anywhere in Charlotte, NC. At the intersection of Morehead St. and Freedom Dr., Pinky’s is near every major interstate, making it not only a favorite for Charlotte, but an easy yummy trip for the entire metropolitan area. The decor is fun and light, while maintaining a good degree of suave dignity. There is parking in front of, behind, and across the street from the restaurant. Take a look at the maps, it’s closer than you think.
