I have driven by Pinky’s Westside Grill many times and have thought about stopping in and finally did this week.
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.
