I cannot say enough about how awesome all the food was. Fried chicken was awesome! Cabbage was delicious. The macaroni and cheese was out of this world. I was visiting from out of town, but if I lived here I would go everyday. Simply amazing, you have to go. Cornbread scrumptious.

I always like to stop here when I'm in town.They are walking distance near the hotel I like to stay at. They're food is excellent home cooking and as much as I travel, it's nice to get a good meal from somewhere other than fast food! Definitely recommend this place for a good home cooked dinner.

Went in for a quick late lunch before our flight yesterday. The food was awesome. Got to meet the owners and they were awesome also. A great choice.

This is a small resturant in a little strip center. With a small plate you get a meat and two sides. With a large plate you get two meats and two sides. The service is cafeteria style, unless you order fried fish and that is cooked when you orderr it. More different chicken selections than I have ever seen in... More

In some parts of Charlotte, good lunch places are hard to find. That is particularly true off Tyvola Road in West Charlotte. But I'm happy to report that one very good lunch buffet serving "soul food" may be found on the corner of Tyvola and Yorkmont - Nana's Soul Food Restaurant. Soul Food is essentially Southern cooking - Fried Chicken... More

I have been beyond impressed with the quality of food at Nana's. Each time I have been there I was greeted with a warm smile and friendly hello. They have a wonderful selection to pick from and I have not yet had a bad meal there. The portions are huge and it is sometimes difficult to finish everything because they... More

Coming from the upper midwest, we don't get this type of quality soul food (unless we cook it ourselves). Nana's was recommended to me during my recent trip to Charlotte, NC and I am so glad I found them. Food was fresh and hot, restaurant was clean, and the customer service given by the employees and the owner was exceptional!... More
