The name of the restaurant does not truly reveal the Hispanic meals you will discover here at Charcoal Chicken. Extremely tasty and very reasonably priced meals. There is a bounty of food when you order any of the dishes. The staff is very friendly (they love if you speak Spanish) and helpful. A gem of a place!
