Excited about Eating by Ernie Hiers

This edition of Excited about Eating takes us to Euro Grill & Café in the Plaza Midwood neighborhood of Charlotte. 

With an eclectic menu, you will find various Mediterranean, German, and Bosnian dishes. This is a small restaurant, only five tables, so you may have to wait. Dora here. Actually, the entire time we were there, every table was occupied, and people lined up. Don't wait until you're starving to go. Speaking from experience. :)

Only two people worked both the back and the front, and they were slammed. I must've looked about ready to pass out from hunger because they very graciously offered us a complimentary Sopska (a Greek salad) due to the delay on our meal. 
Sopska: delicious and colorful!
Delicious, colorful, and some of the best Feta cheese I've ever tasted. Yum! I'd definitely order this again. We were both digging deep for the last few blocks of cheese. :)

When visiting a new restaurant with food from countries that I am not familiar with, I always like to try a variety of options. So I chose the Mjesano Meso. This Meat Lovers Medley included three pieces of skinless sausage (Cevapi), one thin burger (pljeskavica), one chicken kebab (raznjici), and one piece of spicy sausage, (sudzukice), all served on house-made Bosnian flatbread. 

Mjesano Meso
This was truly a sampling of the entire menu. The cevapi reminded me of breakfast sausage, and the pljeskavica would pass for an American hamburger. The chicken raznjici was tender and the sudzukice was great. But the star of this dish was the Bosnian flatbread. Soft and fluffy, I think I could have made a whole meal off just the bread. 

Dora here. That flatbread rocks! So light and fluffy! And the kebab chicken was so tender. But I'm glad I ordered the Beef Burek. Filo stuffed with minced beef, it was tasty, light, and so delicate I had to check to make sure I was eating beef. I ate almost the entire burek, but didn't have that heavy, bloated feeling.
Minced Beef Burek
If you're hoping for ambiance or privacy, this isn't the restaurant. But you might be surprised at this tiny spot. Unusual dishes, large portions, and great prices. How can you go wrong?

We would rate this restaurant 4 forks out of 5 for a family friendly restaurant serving great food.

What's your time limit on waiting for a table?

I don't recall ever eating at such a small restaurant, Dora. Thirty minutes is probably my limit for waiting, unless the aroma wafting from the kitchen is too enticing. Yum...that flatbread looks scrumptious! Enjoy the beautiful day! xo

Looks good, Dora. I was tempted to lick the screen!

Thanks Jill, it was a small restaurant but it was packed with flavor.

Haha, especially the burek. Looks like a giant cinnamon roll, doesn't it? :)

Jill, I believe this is probably the tiniest restaurant we've ever eaten in, too. We've gotten spoiled with wait times here in NC. In FL, an hour wasn't unusual.

Enjoy this stunner of a day, Jill. Perfect golfing weather. You playing?

Unfortunately no golf today...working on my line edits...they're due the 21st. :(
I hope you enjoyed the weather!

Usually about 30 minutes but I have never eaten at a restaurant this small. As usual, your post leaves me hungry.

Awesome! We accomplished our goal, then. :)
Happy Monday, Ann!

Thanks Ann, not sure I would wait 30 minutes.
