Oakhurst Grill Closing Its Doors After Over 50 Years

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A Charlotte staple is preparing to close its doors for good Saturday.

Oakhurst Grill announced that after 52 years, the restaurant will close for good at the end of the business day on May 29.

“Unfortunately, we have come to the decision to close our restaurant. This Saturday, May 29, will be our last day in operation,” John Polonyfis said in an Oakhurst Grill Facebook post. “It’s been a hard decision, and one that we have gone back and forth on for quite some time.”

The mom and pop restaurant is known for American classics like fried chicken and meatloaf. Oakhurst Grill originally opened on Monroe Road in 1968 as Mr. C’s.

“From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to thank you for your business, for your support, for your friendship, for all of the laughs and smiles, for all the kind words, and most of all for the memories that you have given our family over the last 48 years. It has been a pleasure, and our experiences here will be something that we will never forget,” Polonyfis said.

The carry out only restaurant is opened from Tuesday to Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
