From a booklet called "Welcome Soldier! to Charlotte, North Carolina" comes this list of restaurants from 1942. The booklet was given to visiting soldiers during WWII and contained helpful info about Charlotte and things to do while in town. Great look at the dining scene in the Charlotte 1940's.

La Roma Ristoranti was a popular Italian restaurant located on the corner of West Blvd and Remount Rd. Diners were promised a true "Little Italy" experience. Its heyday was during the late-1960's. The restaurant was destroyed in an arson-related fire in October 1975.

A look back to 1930 and an interesting ad from the Myers Park Pharmacy promoting their "delightful Sodas and Sandwiches". Up until the late 1990's, the drugstore lunch counter was a popular Charlotte eating spot. Back in 1930, you could also go next door and putt a few holes, too.
