WELCOME TO Charlotte

Historic Southend

After spending countless hours and endless brews discussing the perfect spot for the first Hawkers location outside of Florida, we realized something very important – the Queen City would always reign supreme! Located in South End, one of Charlotte’s most historic neighborhoods, our first adventure outside of the Sunshine State has motivated us to keep pounding.

“This restaurant has quickly become part of my weekly routine, and my week doesn’t feel complete until I’ve had my Pad Thai from Hawkers. I can’t even explain how amazing their flavors are. I would go every day if I could!”
