It is not too often you get to eat fried shrimp for lunch and you get a decent helping with hush puppies and fries.

Most of their food is greasy and fried except the new line of pita wraps. Chicken pita with wheat pita is light and delicious. Some of their salads are good too.

I haven't eaten at a Showmars since I moved from Charlotte over 10yrs ago. Same great fried-fish and vegetables that I remember! Cheerwine on the soda list too!

I actually ended up visiting this place twice while in Charlotte. This place is typically pretty full during lunch, so we're sure to show early to beat the crowd. The service is very good. They're moving through the lunch hour. Food is okay. You order and it's there in less than five minutes. What am I supposed to think..? That... More

Stopped in at this American fare restaurant for a quick dinner and order the chicken strip meal. Wow! They had to be the best ever. If you can make this simple, common dish this delicious, the other items must be good as well. Cole slaw was an excellent side and staff friendly as well. Southern cooking done well.

Was out for a quick lunch.

While you have to order at the counter, food is brought to your table, a nice... More

It would be overstating things to say that the food at Showmars is excellent. However, the amount of shrimp on the seafood platter was unbelievable (in fact I kept saying that over and over during our dinner). The food was tasty and the service was friendly. Showmars was the best value for a good meal that I, personally, have experienced... More

The price, the service, the food...absolutely awesome...kind of ethnic, but not really, try the pita-burger and tell me you're not going back!
