“Yum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2012

What's better than ice cream on a hot day? Mr. K's soft serve was the best I have tasted, along with the Banana Milk Shake and Strawberry Italian Ice. The three of us visiting shared our desserts, and agreed that across the board, everything was delicious! The outside of the building is unassuming, it's all about what's inside that counts!

“Best cheeseburger around. Always.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2012

Friendly (and fast) service and delicious cheeseburgers. Who could ask for more? Well, there is soft serve ice cream too! It's nice to sit outside on a pretty day at the bright red picnic tables. And lunch for 2 is still under $15.00. Oh, and onion rings that are pretty great too!!

“Best burgers, fries, onion rings, ice cream and people in CLT!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2009

I have had the pleasure of enjoying the food and people of Mr. K's since moving to Charlotte in 1984. You won't get a better burger, fries, onion rings or ice cream from nicer people anywhere. Everything they do, they do right. Great value. Some changes in recent years to update menu to include "home-style" burgers and daily specials and combos.
Nice to see that despite all the changes to Charlotte that some of the great old places survive and thrive.
Great location on South Blvd just south of Tremont.

“Great burgers and real milkshakes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2009

Mr. K's is deservedly famous for its delicious large cheeseburgers and its thick and rich real milkshakes and malts. They do pretty awesome fries and onion rings, too. This long-lived Charlotte burger grill has been a reliable place for quick lunches and treats for the kids for at least 30 years. It is a family place run by a real Mr. K, a gruff-looking but sweet-natured patriarch who could have come straight off the lot of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding." Although Zack's, which has longer hours, especially on weekends, is rated higher in TripAdvisor, I prefer Mr. K's. I prefer the taste of the food here, and the friendliness of the counter-guys and gals, many of whom are in the "K" family, will win you over.
