We have used this local restaurant for years. Sometimes for dinner, but most recently for takeout lunch. The drive-up lunch specials are a bargain and the service is fast. Take lunch to one of the nearby beach parks for a real treat.

We had the full rack of ribs and a Caesar salad. The ribs were wonderful. They were very tender and moist. They are dry ribs, and I like them liked that, but my husband put sauce all over them and still loved them. The salad was ok too. I had a bit of a problem with the lights and the... More

I was there about 2 weeks ago for the first time with a friend . You can smell the food from a good distance. I pulled into the parking lot and saw 2 huge smokers in a covered gated area. There were 2 cooks out there smoking meats. You go there to eat not for ambience. I had the Charlie's... More

Charlie & Jakes was AWESOME tonight. Service friendly... And the food was on the money. Reasonable prices. We had St. Louis Ribs, with Turnip Greens, Black Eyed Peas and Texas Toast...also a Vegetable Plate consisting of Mac & Cheese, Fried Okra, Turnip Greens and Green Beans. Both meals were Excellent! See the photos.. You'll head that way tomorrow!

Our food here was good, pretty much like most local American BBQ restaurants. If the BBQ isn't good, the place just won't last. We had ribs and pulled pork, and both were fine. Sides were a bit skimpy but reasonably tasty. Only three sauces on the table, although they were pretty good as well. Service was fine. Decor (football and... More

Go here for the St. Louis ribs and creamy cole slaw. The ribs were great, but the rest of the items are just fair. Don't eat the green beans, tasted like water. The blackened Mahi was all salt. Stick with ribs, fries, cole slaw, sweet potato and you will enjoy. If you are vegetarian go somewhere else! Get a bucket... More

We ate here one night when we were on vacation. Very casual atmosphere. We both had combo plates and the food was very good, except my ribs were a little dry. The pulled pork was excellent. Service was fast and friendly. Go easy on the hot BBQ sauce - it's spicy! They have a special every night.

We were visiting the area for 3 days and we ended up eating here all three days! That smokey meat called us back each day like addicts. This is the REAL deal. The side dishes were okay... But the meats are the real gem of this place. The pulled pork, chicken, and turkey all had that real smoked pink line... More
