      Very good value
      Unique and center, this place brings southern cooking and ecleptic atmosphere together, very gay and family friendly. Friendly staff. And the prices for the entrees can't be beat. It reminded me about Crazy Fish which is about a mile further down Central except that The Dish is better established and situated in the heart of this neighborhood. Caution on taking your first date here though, at your own risk, I took a guy here and he behaved like a snob, so this is not the place for a snob, OK? LOL, this is really a down to earth place where the food is really decent and the prices are at great value so you will be satisfied :-) I promise.

    • Lesbian Chic!
      ok crazy good down home cooking. This is not on the typical gay diet. ( i am from NYC, we don't eat this) BUT this is charlotte, Y'all! And it's awesome! I had the Pork Chops (which i prefer a thick cut chop, these are thin) but the glaze on them was fantastic, one of the best mashed potatoes i have ever had, and a really thick, rich mac & Cheese. My partner had the blackened chicken with sweet potato mash and green beans, he LOVED them... Sweet potato mash was the sweetest, brown sugarish (is this a word?) mash ever! A cute little thing they do is every entree is served with a deviled egg and the most buttery, heaviest, most delicious biscuit ever! And as we heard from a local here, it's owned and run by a lesbian couple! Support this restaurant, not just because it's gay, but also because it's REALLY REALLY good.
