Diners Drive-Ins and Dives – East Charlotte Style

I just came across these two videos from the Food Network show Diners Drive-Ins and Dives.  It is one of my favorites to watch and I was really thrilled to see these two East Charlotte restaurants showcased by Guy Fieri!!   Have you visited either of these two places…what is your favorite item on the menu??   Jake’s Good Eats is located on Albermarle Rd and Landmark Restaurant Diner is over on Central Ave. East Charlotte has a wonderful range of places to get a great meal… What are your favorites??   I would love to feature them here!!
