This edition of Excited about Eating takes us to Letty’s, a southern-style restaurant in the heart of the Midwood region of Charlotte. This neighborhood eatery offers comfort food in a homey environment where everyone is welcomed.
Dora here. True. Letty made her way around the dining room, chatting with patrons, several times during our visit. What Letty’s lacked in ambiance, they more than made up for in cleanliness, friendliness, and good service. Probably a local favorite. When I mentioned that it was a bit dark, hubby chimed in with romantic. That’s my guy. 🙂

Dora here. Tomatoes and pimento? How did Ernie ever convince me to order this? lol. Actually, the fritters were a great start. I had high hopes. 🙂
The server recommended Shrimp & Grits. Grilled shrimp served over sausage gravy and topped with grits, crumbled bacon and cheddar jack cheese. This dish was loaded with shrimp and cheese, and the combination blended so well together, I will definitely try this again.

Dora here. Our server also recommended the Honey Pecan Chicken, which sounded right up my foodie alley. Maybe because I’m trying to eat healthier, the chicken was a bit too sweet for my taste, almost like candy, and most of the options for sides were carb-heavy. That said, check out the generous portions, and what a great value at only $10.

Fellas, if you’re looking for a romantic spot to wow your sweetheart, this probably isn’t the place. But if you’re looking for down-home cooking at a great value, head to Letty’s.
We rate this restaurant 4 forks out of 5 for a family friendly restaurant serving great food.
