This edition of Excited about Eating takes us to The Liberty, advertised as “Charlotte’s First Gastropub” in the South End of Charlotte. The Liberty’s interior is well lit and modern, and their food elevates pub fare to another level.
|This is only half the restaurant space.|
Dora here. Yeah! We brought Little Man. Why didn’t we order the tower? Good thing you can’t see the mangled pretzel on the bottom. We dug right in, so excited we forgot to snap a picture! lol. These pretzels were perfect, so soft and fresh. Forget the mustard. Dive right into that cheese. Yummo!
I ordered the Painted Hill’s Natural Crunch Burger. Pimento cheese, smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato, and house-made chips stacked high. This burger was huge and so juicy I had to wipe my face after every bite. The combination of the pimento cheese and bacon worked great together and the added crunch from the chips added a unique feature to this burger.

Dora here. The Irish Hills Black Angus Pub Burger was heaped with three or four thick slices of meaty bacon, cheese, caramelized onions, herb aioli, lettuce and tomato. Humongous! The aioli and the soft bun makes this burger sing, one of the best burgers I’ve ever tasted! And the chips? Ohhhhh! Consistently firm, not greasy at all, and seasoned just right.

Parking may be an issue since The Liberty shares a lot with Tupelo Honey Cafe, also a hopping place. (See our review of Tupelo here) But on street parking behind the CATS station (just beyond the parking lot) is FREE on Saturday and Sunday. Trust me on this. After you eat, you’ll be glad for the walk. 🙂
We rate this restaurant 5 forks out of 5 for a family friendly restaurant serving outstanding food.

Looks like a great place, Dora. That burger is HUGE! I would have liked to have seen a photo of your first bite. 🙂 How does one wrap their mouth around something that big? 🙂 The pretzels look yummy too!
Thanks Jill, I had to cut my in half to get the first bite and yes, the pretzels were great.
Um, yes, it wasn't very ladylike. lol. Definitely worth it though. 🙂
I had to Google “Gastropub”, I thought maybe it referred to what you got after you ate there 🙂
Come on Kirk, get with the times. Seriously, you should give this place a try.
ahhaha. How do they ever come up with these words?? lol
Looks like some great eating. Reading your posts always makes me hungry.
