Never a bad sandwich. The meat is always fresh and never dried out. Been going there for years and will continue.

This place is great for their beef & ribs. But, over priced for the portion you are given. The fresh cut fries leave alot to be desired, I ordered the regular size for $4.00 & got a small cup of what I believe to be the bottom of the pan (left overs) thrown back into the fryer & sold to... More

I have been coming here as well as Chaps for the past 8 years. It will be a whole before I return. I will take the extra 10 mins to go to Chaps hands down. The service and quality of food has gone down tremendously recently. The last time I ordered, they forgot a hot dog. The manager, Michael, said... More

I have been going to this Charcoal Grill for years, their pit sauce on the ribs and wings is so good, that I dip my fries and pit-beef sandwiches in it!

This place is a gem. Great ham and roast beef sandwiches and the most delicious ribs. It does have a few tables but most take it to go.

The Charcoal Grill is just a simple walk-up stand - One window to order, another to pick-up. They offer various sandwiches, ribs, wings, etc. But if you're going here you have to get the pit beef and fries. They have the usual selection of pit beef, ham, and turkey; sliced thin and cooked to your liking. The fries are fresh... More

This is a stand. You order at one window, wait a maximum of 10 minutes & pick up at another. The pit beef & barbecue sandwiches are great. The boardwalk style fries are always hot & tasty. Portions are large. Coupons are sent in local mailers.

This is certainly not a dine-in restaurant but rather a pit beef stand with excellent food. Don't miss out on the pit-beef sandwich and a cup of fries.
