DESCRIPTION

Among numerous local honors, Mert's Heart and Soul has been named Best Southern Country/Soul Food Restaurant by Creative Loafing critics. 

From the restaurant's website:

"Located in the heart of uptown Charlotte, Mert's Heart and Soul is one of the most sought-after dining destinations in the Queen City. From the award-winning macaroni and cheese, to the sweet, buttery cornbread, to the shrimp and grits, Mert's Southern, Low Country and Gullah-inspired favorites leave guests with an unforgettable, home-cooked experience."


"Soul food, Southern cooking, Low Country cuisine, different people call it different things, and truth is the menu is a loving mishmash of all of the above. Fried chicken, salmon cakes, blackened pork chops, fried catfish, shrimp and grits - this is the delicious stuff of Mert's. The drop biscuits are heavenly, and the miniloafs of sweet cornbread remain irresistible. Yams, macaroni and cheese, and greens are perfect sides - well seasoned, flavorful, and not too greasy."

- Richard Thurmond, Charlotte magazine
