Places in Charlotte where you order at the counter

I'm trying to compile a list of restaurants in Charlotte where you order at the counter, and then the food is either brought out to your table or you pick it up at the counter. I prefer this at lunchtime because it can often get me in and out quicker and I don't feel obligated to pay a full 20% tip on top of the meal. And I think we need more of these places in Charlotte, as so many places in town are sit-down-and-order-from-a-server restaurants. Fast food chains and other major national chains do not count. I'm also excluding places that do not have seating in or right by the restaurant (Price's, for example) I'll get the list started, but help me think of (or discover) more:

Viva Chicken
Common Market
Phat Burrito
Just Fresh
Owen's Bagel & Deli
Poppy's Bagels
Adams' 7th Street Market
Every place at the 7th Street market downtown
Metropolitan Cafe
Bang Bang Burger
Roasting Company
J.J.'s Red Hots
Green's Lunch

What else you got?...
