Standing Room Only Pub & Deli

1981 menu

Standing Room Only Pub & Deli opened in March 1980 in the Westpark Mall on Tyvola Rd. Besides great food, it holds three important distinctions in Charlotte restaurant history--- it was the first place in town to serve wings, it's beer selection rivaled other eateries in town due to both quality and quantity of selection (only The Hotel Charlotte came close), and it gets credit for being one of Charlotte's earliest sports bar.

Owner Kirk Weaver would operate SRO for the balance of the decade before opening the Township Grille in Matthews in 1988 and then, most recently, Lebowski's Neighborhood Grill on East Blvd. 

Much thanks to Kirk Weaver for supplying the photo and menu!
