Stopped for another helping of fried chicken from the Midnight Diner after visiting a local museum. This time I tried the chicken with French toast. I personally liked the French toast better than the waffles.

Exceptional chicken, great service, and a great location within walking distance of the Carson Street Lynx station and Bank of America stadium.

I’ll certainly be back when I’m in Charlotte again.

Take a trip back to the 60s in the Midnight Diner. The rat pack and others croon in the background while you enjoy a wide variety of traditional American diner meals. Full salads, all the sides and wonderful sandwiches like the Philly cheese steak I had with grilled mushrooms, peppers, onions and topped with melted provolone. The fries were generous crinkle cuts seasoned well.

My spouse had chicken tenders which were obviously real chicken breast, stripped, and battered in a homemade mix, then deep fried. Not oily. Served with a honey mustard sauce. The side salad with caeser dressing was also good but a bit heavy on croutons.

The waitress, Elizabeth, was attentive and polite without being overbearing. Kudos to her and the whole staff. We were seated very quickly at the height of the lunch rush.

The Midnight Diner is an upbeat experience with great food. Choose from breakfasts, lunches, and other menu items including beer selections.

We will return.

The wait time can be pretty long and there really isn't much space inside to wait, so you'll likely have to stand outside when they're busy. The food is sooo good though. My husband gets the french toast with coconut and stuff on top. The sausage gravy is great and the grits are excellent.

Whether you want breakfast or lunch , you can get it here at any time. I ordered two sides- the collard greens and a house salad. The collards were the best tasting I have ever had- so fresh and seasoned well. One of our friends enjoyed the midnight burger with fries and the others, French toast and pancakes which they said were great! It is a little noisy for conversation but it is indeed an upbeat place to be with friends. Friendly staff.

I came here the other day with my husband & another couple for breakfast & ordered the midnight special with a side biscuit. The meal was delicious & the service was good. It's a cute little diner & they offer a decent selection on their menu.
