Baku.... went once and that was enough... never again. 

I’ll checkout Oak and Yafo. Doesn’t need to be SP specifically, they are just staying in the area and that would be easiest. 

In that case tell them Essex, Fig Tree, Yume, or Bardo

Any recommendations for South Park area? In-laws are coming and I’d like to show them something new instead of their old standbys. Really anything that has opened in the last ~3 years would count as “new” here. 

Dogwood Southern Table is good but a little pricey.  Southpark Grill (in between Capital Towers) is new but really haven't heard too much about it.

Charlotte Five, "Common Market is open in South End again and it's not the same - but the weirdness lives on," by Katie Toussaint, September 11, 2018.

"I opened the door.  I expected a wave of nostalgia to wash over me, but instead I was just floored by how enormous this new, two-level space at 235 W. Tremont St. next to Bang Bang Burgers felt. The cluttered aisles of snacks and drinks at the original Camden Road location (demolished for redevelopment) have given way to soaring ceilings, tall windows, walls awash with murals, a full-on bar, a maze of towering refrigerators leading to the deli window, and multiple seating areas (there’s a particularly cozy nook on the interior staircase landing." ... "Bring your dog to the huge patio and settle in among the decor that just doesn’t make sense: the workshop table with a tangle of metal, the rake, and (there it is!) the decorative bathtub with fronds growing in it."

N.B.:  The most recent UP Forum Meetup was held Saturday evening (September 8th) at the new Common Market at 235 West Tremont Ave.  Word has it that roughly a dozen UPers showed up and had a great meetup.

I saw a discussion on Twitter about #PeakTaco in Charlotte with the closing of Babalu.  I say nonsense there is plenty of room for taco joints, Tex Mexican and real Mexican restaurants in this city and more are needed. This is one suburbanite who knows good tacos and other Mexican dishes like Arroz con Pollo and many more.  First I ask my Mexican friends and go where  they like to eat.  As Mexican Tex Mex is my favorite ethnic food I can tell that the choices in the Charlotte area have greatly improved and there is good Mexican and Tex Mex all over town.

This is a chain but it was packed in Matthews in the shopping center with Costco, Fuzzy's Taco Shop out of  Ft Worth TX.  It was good and very affordable.   Plus 2 more locations coming to south Charlotte in Rea Farms Village and Berewick.   It is the best I have ever no but it is good yes and very affordable this plate cost $7.50! 

So there is no #PeakTaco here in Charlotte and the popularity and variety of places we have continues to grow.  another little place I like to go to Pollo Campero a chain right out of yes Guatemala! http://us.campero.com/

What are some of your favorite Mexican or Tex Mex in the area?

La Unica 

Neither! Lempira is the best hands down.  La Unica is overpriced and bad food. Their salsa isn’t even good!  Last time I went there the service was horrible.  Although the La Unica in Indian Trail is way better.

I should have been more specific.  I was referring to Indian Trail.
