Excited about Eating by Ernie & Dora Hiers

This edition of Excited about Eating takes us to a neighborhood sport’s bar in the University area of Charlotte, Picasso’s Sports Café. This wings and pizza sports bar also features sandwiches, salads, and a list of starters.

There’s an outdoor eating area behind those columns. lol.

Dora here. Tucked into the bottom floor of a ginormous shopping center, we almost missed this place. So glad we didn’t because it reminded me of a modern “Cheers.”

Great place to watch the Panthers play

We appreciated that it wasn’t dark and stale like some sports bars and offered plenty of tables near the windows. With televisions of all sizes, this cafe would be a great place to catch a game, especially if you get there early like us. lol.

As our starter, we chose the Breadstix with homemade dough, topped with mozzarella and cheddar cheese, garlic butter and served with a side of marinara. This appetizer was great, kind of like a cheese pizza with outstanding dough.

Breadstix appetizer. YUM!

Dora here. Yum. Who can complain about a buttery crust and two kinds of cheese? Not me!

For my lunch, I ordered the Wing & Fry Basket, which included 6 garlic parmesan wings and tater tots. The buffalo sauce mixed in with the garlic and parmesan gave the wings quite the kick, really good flavor. The tater tots were crispy, just how I like them.

Wings & Fry (tater tots, extra crispy just how I like them!) Basket.

Dora here. The pepperoni roll was a good balance if you’re craving something pizza-ish, not overly doughy or cheesy. But, unless you’re really hungry, you might want to share this jumbo roll. Especially if you order the Breadstix appetizer…carb overload. Don’t judge! lol.

Pepperoni roll was a good balance if you’re craving something pizza-ish. Not overly cheesy or doughy.

Dora here. We surely missed you!

Wow, it’s so hard to believe that Ernie and I started the “foodies” aspect of the blog over three years ago!  He wanted me to try new places and venture outside my “foodie” box. It worked. 🙂

But now we’re spending most of our available weekends in our mountain home and we’re limited by driving distance during the week. That restricts our opportunities to try new places. Plus we never get the opportunity to go back to some of these places we’ve raved about. So, we’ll be scaling back from our weekly posts. Hope you’ll stick with us!

We rate this sports bar 3 forks out of 5 for a family friendly restaurant serving good food.

  1. The place does look like Cheers! I love the pics. Now I’m craving wings and tater tots with a side of pepperoni roll. Sigh. It’s just 7:30 a.m. 🙂 Enjoy the mountains…and the carbs, Dora. We only live once. Hugs, my friend! ❤
