CLT favorite eatery?

Have an upcoming flight with a 3 hour layover in CLT around diner time. I'm sure the inbound flight will have the Famous Protein Sandwich/ Birdseed choices! any recommendations for dinner Airside? Have AC membership and may just graze there? but no other lounge access. any favorites? TIA RT

IME there is nothing at CLT worth writing home about. Typical airport chain stuff. With 3 hours you have plenty time to walk around for a bit and see what looks the best or what you're hungry for.

If you search the existing CLT thread there's a handful of posts discussing a few options:

GUIDE: CLT / Charlotte Douglas Airport - MCT, Connection, etc.

I find all the concessions at CLT to be poor quality with equally poor service. OTOH, if you like deep fried slop with a side of attitude you will love it.

Is the side of attitude la carte, or is this a prix fixe deal?

I like NoDa Brewing out by the new A gates.

A little bit of a walk, but the beers are good. The food is average HMS Host stuff. However, the good local beer makes it my favorite CLT stop.

Bojangles. Fast food? Yes. Greasy and bad for you? Yes. Really tasty? Also yes.

I find the airport Bojangles to be subpar.

Granted, i'm a vegetarian, so my sampling of the menu is limited. However, the non-airport Bojangles run circles around this one.

Agreed. However, Bojangles hasn't come to Central Texas yet so I get my fix when and where I can.

I like Bad Daddy's (burger place) in C. Yes it is greasy and bad for you, but tastes great

Last time I went to CLT ( 3-4 weeks ago ), most of the concessions were either closed or had limited hours due an excuse of labor shortage.
I am not sure if the issue is the same at this time, but wanted to share as the OP might not have that much options as he would imagine if the situation is same.

Really? I found Phillips to be quite awful. I haven't gone back since.

I haven't been through CLT since the Before Times, so the value of this feedback might be pretty limited, but Beaudevin was my go-to there for longer connections; and I always found 1897 Market to be passable as well.
