The King's Kitchen
129 W. Trade St., Charlotte, NC 28202
This restaurant from Chef Jim Noble, which serves traditional Southern fare, donates its profits to faith-based feeding centers and employs troubled youth and people who have just come out of rehab or prison. The meats, local vegetables, and cornbread are all straight-from-your-mom’s-kitchen delicious, but desserts like pecan pie and banana pudding steal the show.
Hours: Closed Sun
