Pinky’s Westside Grill Preparing To Storm Huntersville
Those badass punk rock restaurateurs over at Pinky’s Westside on 1600 Morehead Street are bringing their DIY culinary ruckus to Huntersville this fall. They hope to open at the 9818 Gilead Road (Suite B-101) location sometime this October.
On an ideal week, I get to Pinky’s at least once, sometimes twice, if I’m jonesing bad for the buffalo shrimp tacos. My addiction seemed to get worse once I started branching out on the menu and tried the fresh falafal, or short rib tacos, or Wednesday’s special veggie burrito. Everything comes served up with a smile and a little Black Sabbath or The Delfonics. The extra attention to prompt service and unique, flavorful meals at affordable prices are solid fundamentals for restaurateurs looking to flourish and grow. Plus there is a gigantic photo of Boris Karloff as Frankenstein’s Monster. Need I say more.
Here is about all I know from my lazy castings for updates: many of the big checks have been written, the menu is the same and there is no surrender. It will be interesting to see the Pinky’s vision unfold outside the packed quarters of the former Triple G auto shop and into a space designed to showcase a restaurant. We wish them good luck as they spread their gospel of good times and kickass food.
