Dallas isn't an in your face tourist destination city but still plenty to do and see. I think current Charlotte is a 1980s version of Dallas more so than Atlanta.

Anywho, back to Raleigh v Charlotte.
What he stated was a stretch, but the Dallas area does come across as a bit more cookie-cutter than Houston, Miami, and Atlanta which all have a certain edge to them that Dallas lacks. Fort Worth is a bit different though; I think it has more defining features than Dallas and a more interesting core.

But yes, I can somewhat see how Charlotte could be called an 80's version of Dallas (except with a better downtown) more so than Atlanta.

Food trucks: Charlotte just relaxed these rules

Food trucks can operate closer to houses and residential areas: The new ordinance lowers the minimum distance food trucks must maintain from houses to 100 feet, down from 400 feet. That should, in theory, make it easier to operate food trucks on the outskirts of neighborhoods adjacent to dense, commercial areas, such as Plaza Midwood and South End. There’s one caveat: If a food truck is open between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m., it must maintain a 400-foot distance from the nearest houses.

Adds a rule pushing food trucks away from restaurants: The new regulations add a rule that food trucks not be located within 50 feet of any restaurant without the owner’s approval. That part could restrict some locations, and is a boon to restaurant owners concerned about competition from nearby food trucks. This rule keeps food trucks out of uptown because 183 restaurant owners do not want them in uptown other than special events like Speed Street.
Unless things change I do not think you will see 50 or more food trucks in uptown.
