Popular Plaza Midwood burger joint Kickstand Burgers + Bar announced this morning that ownership will be shutting the doors effective today due to construction and renovations on their side of the building. The restaurant was attached to La Autentica, formerly La Unica. It’s unclear at the moment what the future will be for the space, which has prime placement at what could be called the main entrance to Plaza Midwood coming from Uptown.
As for our thoughts on Kickstand, which stood on that property for more than eight years, we’ll always look back fondly on the “$2.50 all beers — bottles, drafts and cans — all day, every day” pricing they started in June 2018. Best deal in Charlotte, and we challenge someone else to step up to the plate to replace it.
