Floyd’s Soul Food restaurant will close after 40 years in Charlotte

Charlotte’s staple soul food restaurant will be closed.

After nearly 40 years in business, Floyd’s Restaurant, located at 4122 North Graham Street, has announced its permanent closure. In a message on its mobile ordering website, the restaurant notified customers that it would be closed from June 29.

The news was first shared widely on Instagram @thadailyspecial.

The Black-owned restaurant offers soul food classics such as braised pork chops, fried catfish and chicken, baked macaroni and cheese, peach skewers and banana pudding. It has been a favorite among Charlotte residents for many years.

Otis Floyd, who died in 2014, founded the restaurant in 1986. It is currently owned by his son, Tyrone Floyd.

In 1995, it moved to the Freedom Mall, and in the early 2000s to a now demolished building on Wilkinson Boulevard.
