I hosed about three Coor’s Light’s as I downed my thirteen crab puppies and took in the ambience. Pinky’s is a lot like the Penguin (another great Charlotte burger joint). The inside is wood booths, dim lights, eclectic decorations, and friendly staff. There are a few TV’s over the bar and some decent tunes in the background. If you just want to chill-out, have some beers, and eat delicious food, Pinky’s is the place for you.
I typically stop on my way to the airport, and on my way home from the airport. Parking at Pinky’s is a bit limited and overflow is directed across the street. That would be my only knock on the joint. Other than that, Pinky’s is a great burger joint to greet newcomers to the city, or welcome home locals.
