Hometown BBQ

I have grown to love Charlie and Jake's. The staff is always friendly and the food is always fresh and we'll prepared. The prices are great. What more can you ask for.

Some of the best barbecue you'll find anywhere served in a casual environment with great service and very reasonable prices. I wish they delivered to Minnesota.

They brew their own beers. They've just remodeled. Friendly staff. Nice happy hour with both quality, quantity and prices. Wines are a great deal. Dinner salads are very good.

Always good. This is one of our usual places. Service is great and the Wednesday Sloppy Charlie special is the best.
