CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) – Green Lunch Inc. It’s a block from the federal courthouse in downtown Charlotte, which means lawyers in business suits can be seen next to construction workers in neon jackets, all ordered together.
Green Dogs, famous since 1926, serves BLTs on light wheat bread and “special chili.”
It’s old school, with counters and styrofoam boards.
Owner Joanne Sikiotis said a report that the building was for sale made people question whether Greene’s would be open.

She and her son, Nick, have repeatedly emphasized that the restaurant is open for business.
“We’re not closed,” says Joan Sikiotis. “We are not closed.”
She said February was emptier than usual, and she and Nick believe that’s because people thought they were closing. She has calls every day asking when their deadline is and if they are open at all.
“I’ve seen the reports, but we’re open as a restaurant,” Sikiotis said. “I grew up here. My parents owned this place and gave it to me and my sister. I have been here 46 years. We have no closing date and are open, open, open for business.
It is located smack in the middle of the green growing Charlotte Metropolitan area, open weekdays from 7.30am to 2pm.
