CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Starting this weekend, you can enjoy a meal at a five-star restaurant for an affordable price.

Queen’s Feast kicks off Friday, July 21, and 130 restaurants in nine counties are participating in the annual event. The best part? You can enjoy a full three-course meal for $30 or $35.

From Hickory to Rock Hill, there’s no question prospective diners will be able to find a dish that satisfies their taste buds.

Jon Ernst is the Executive Chef at Café Monte in South Park, known for its French cuisine. He recommends their short ribs if you’re stopping by.

Among the new establishments on the list is Oak Steakhouse. The SouthPark restaurant is described as mid-century modern and features a 5 oz. bistro, market catch, and summer salad among a few favorite items on the menu.

Birdie Yang, owner and chef of Baku, says offering dishes at a lower price brings in new faces and new experiences.

"It's a great opportunity to showcase what we have to people who haven't been here and to give people an opportunity to try who normally won't be here," Yang said.

According to Queen’s Feast, reservations are recommended, and if you must cancel a reservation, they ask that you please do so as soon as possible.


The promotion runs through July 30.
