Another One Of The Old Charlotte Restaurants Falls Victim To Redevelopment
Another one bites the dust. As more and more people move to Charlotte developers are willing to pay for more and more for land. While growth and innovation can be seen as a good thing, there are also casualties of that growth. One that has received a lot of attention in Charlotte is the loss of Charlotte institutions. In many cases restaurants. Many of these spots we’ve lost over the last few years are part of what people refer to as Old Charlotte. Some of the old Charlotte restaurants we’ve lost in recent years include Price’s Chicken Coop, Zack’s Hamburgers, and now the newest one added to the list is Gus’ Sir Beef. The restaurant posted the following to social media after reports circled of a for sale sign outside the restaurant.
Gus’ Sir Beef is/was a home-cooking family-style restaurant, think meat and vegetables. Probably a lot like what my grandmother used to cook. I miss that type of food and am sorry I never made it to a meal there. I’ve driven past the location on Monroe Rd numerous times and always wondered about the spot. The restaurant is still open currently as no buyer has been secured. But if Gus Sir Beef is one of your favorite old Charlotte restaurants you may want to make a trip soon.
