I LOVE this place. I went once and instantly it because my favorite place to eat! I have to drive 20 minutes to get these but I will do it in an instant! The owners are wonderful and full of great stories! The staff is very friendly and on their toes. The cooks get it right everytime! The food is always mouthwatering! I love Rigas! My hubby went there just one time and yes it is his favorite place also! My parents eat there about every other day but I would too If I lived closer! I am always keeping an eye out on my side of town for Rigas to open another location!

I am not that much of a hamburger eater but after having one of the Charlottean Burgers, I could eat one everyday! Rigas cooks the burger to how YOU like it! I recommend the Charlottean Cheese Burger with Fries. Even though you won't have room for Fries... Get then oh how delicious they are! And yes they have the Right pickles-mmmm
Yes, they have Breakfast (anytime), Lunch and Dinner. Here are just a few breakfast items:
~How about the Bubba- 2 Eggs, Ham, Bacon, Sausage & American Cheese on Grilled Sourdough Bread.
~Some Belgian Waffles
~2 Eggs with BBQ (Yes, BBQ). I LOVE their BBQ- Tastey!
**If you would like something not on the menu just ask...**
You can be like my dad and eat almost every meal there. Rigas has such a variety of food on their menu you can try something new everytime you visit!
Rigas is in a great location. They are on Monroe Road at Galleria Blvd. They are right next to the Tire place. This is an easy place to get in and out. I like that-lol
Some items that make my mouth water are:
~Charlottean- Hamburger, Cheese, Slaw, Delicious Pickles, Onions, Peppers & BBQ Sauce! (This is my all time favorite- You can get it cooked how you like too!)
~How about the Chicken Rigas- Char-boiled Half Chicken seasoned with Greek herbs and spices & Basted with lemony sauce.
~If these didn't make your mouth water how about a Chicken Salad Wrap (This is big and Goood)
Of course you have to get these with fries! Even though you are full you will still want to munch of these babies!
A bit about this wonderful place to get away and eat- it is a family place. I love going to eat at places that thinks so much of one another that they run a business together. The owners are Gus (Uncle) and Nick (Nephew) . Both are very nice and funny guys! They really treat you right and make you feel right at home. There are other family members there also. Gus' son left NY early one morning and picked up REAL NY Bagels on the way down to Charlotte, NC. He timed his arrival to Charlotte so he would get to Rigas right when they opened the doors... And he shared those Bagels with EVERYONE!
You know you have to have DESSERT!
~How about The Belle of the Ball- Coconut Layered Cake
~The All American Pie- Apple Pie
~Galactbooriko- A favorite made with Custard & Filo pastry served with Syrup!
They also have a very kid friendly menu (always a plus when you have two picky little ones-lol)
So if you are looking for the BEST place to eat in town AND one that has a warm & friendly atmosphere... Here it is~ Rigas on 10020 Monroe Road, 28105
You will be back once you taste their wonderful, mouth watering food!
