If you are looking for blue-plate breakfast or lunch in Charlotte, you can’t beat John’s Country Kitchen. We were taken there by Carolina cuisiniere Heidi Billotto, whose “Charlotte Weekly” story about the place described the portions as large and the prices as “unbelievably reasonable.”

John’s Country Kitchen on Central Avenue in Plaza Midwood has been a fixture at the corner of Central and Thomas avenues for 30 years. Owner Jimmy Margiotis and his mom, Margaret, are behind the grill every morning, greeting and conversing with customers while cooking a variety of breakfast fare including, eggs any way, French toast, crispy-edged pancakes, home-baked bisquits and more.
