More Than Bagels!
There is no question that this is one of the best TRUE NY places in NC.  Great bagels are the foundation of this Huntersville Hot Spot. The Bagel Sandwiches, piled high with delicious cold-cuts, are another reason they keep coming back. Breakfast or lunch, it's a must! Fox Sports commentator Bob Dillner says "They have the best crumb cake I've ever had"

Rosario's Pizza Says "Best NY Pizza in NC and a true Family Joint"
Our Matthew Dillner is the mayor of this brilliant food find.  So close to the track you can taste it! If you don't like Rosario's, you don't like NY pizza.  This family owned joint has one of the best slices in NC.  Sneaky menu too that includes great italian dishes and surprisingly tasty calamari.  Caprese slice or Grandma slice is a must. The new Bruscetta slick has become as favorite as well as the sausage and pepper special slice.  The Large Panini's are made with their homemade bread.  NASCAR Teams freqent this slice of heaven.  If you don't go to this place during Charlotte Race Weeks, I feel bad for you!

Cabo Fish Taco Says: "A little Baja in Noda!"
 A fun great hipster joint in Charlotte that has a menue exploding with creativity. Word of mouth has made this place a cult favorite with area foodies. Everything is good, but of course, try the fish tacos. Try the Tavarua Tuna Tacos... an unusual  spicy/sweet asian twist at this baja eatery.  Not a hallow-heartless hipster joint...this place has substance on every level and most importantly...on the YUM-scale
