Let’s face it – people in this city love to eat. Myself included. If you follow my shrine to my stomach (a.k.a. my Instagram account, @eatdrinkclt), you know I’m all about some good eats. And luckily, Charlotte’s got a lot to offer.

After checking out Katie’s #CLTagenda story, I thought I’d take a closer look at a favorite hashtag of mine: #CLTfood. Did y’all know this hashtag has been used over 32,000 times? That’s great news for our culinary scene and even better news for me because now I know what to eat everywhere I go.

In honor of your dedication to photographing the glorious dishes of the Queen City, here are 45 tasty posts that mention #CLTfood. Your next dinner order just got a little easier.

The day after Thanksgiving is for indulging too, no? This has been a longtime favorite on our menu. Doesn’t get old!

Hello @feedmecharlotte! I am super impressed by your lunch. This grilled NC rainbow trout and side of asparagus look unreal. I have been going to 131 Main for years (the Blakeney one) and now I’m craving it! Thanks so much for sharing with us. Have a great Saturday night everybody.
