Brooks Sandwich House is located at 2710 N. Brevard Street in Charlotte, North Carolina. The founders are twin brothers who opened their hot dog and hamburger restaurant in 1973. They have homemade chili recipe that was created forty-six years ago.
A guy named Kevin Alexander who writes for a website called the ‘Thrillist’ took a year to travel the United State with the goal to find the one hundred best hamburgers in America. He tapped into local food writers and chefs to get a recommendation of the best burger joint in the city. He actually ate three hundred and thirty hamburgers during his journey.
Kevin was so impressed with Brooks Sandwich House he named them the eighth best hamburger in the whole country. He designated them a ‘must visit’ restaurant in Charlotte.
It says a lot about a restaurant when they get a four-point-seven-star rating with over eleven hundred complimentary post online. Sadly, one of the brothers was murdered in front of the restaurant in December 2019 and the culprit has not been found. However, the family is pushing through as a third generation takes over the joint.
