Great smoked prime rib, and for the local favorite burger/BBQ spot, it was a delis' surprise. I ordered 12 Oz, but got more than a pound. Spouse loved her fried shrrimp

We stopped here on vacation. My son and I had the mini-combo which was a great deal. You get 3 different meats and two sides plus bread or hush puppies for about $12. Our favorites were the smoked chicken and sliced beef. My husband had ribs. They were ok, but not as smoky flavored as ones we have back home.... More

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!
