Chargrilled burgers!

Excellent place for a quick lunch. I went to NC State where the original char-grill is. This is just as good. Great burgers and hot dogs. You get to pick what's put on your sandwiches when you order. Free refills on drinks. Simply wonderful.

We come here as our son likes this place. It is a fun casual gathering place. Outdoor seating as well. Personally, I think the food is average. Your typical american diner with no healthy options. The staff at the register are always nice and smiling.

Char-grill, the Raleigh franchise that started near NC State is in Davidson away from downtown but close to I-77 on Griffith Street. Their shakes and fries can't be beat and their burgers are always cooked to perfection. My wife and I typically get the steak burger junior- the regular steak burger is a whole lot of meat but still good.... More

Veggie burger was ok but not great. My son had a regular burger and was fine with it but said he likes others a lot more. There are a lot of burger places out there right now. Char Grill is definitely not a gourmet burger place and there just wasn't enough there to me to differentiate it from fast food.

Clean, open setting with good basic burger food et al. Nothing fancy, nothing spectacular. Very good service every time we have dined there.

This is really a great retro burger. One of the few that comes close to reminding me of the ultimate burger I remember growing up. Great taste and prepared just the way you want it. Great char flavor and flavor wins out over nitrosamines. Good overall combination in the burger makes for a great combination. Fries are good but need... More

This is not what we were expecting. With the history of this named burger joint, we felt it was going to be over the top. Very wrong. To start with, there seemed to be any "real locals" working here. It was a rainbow of people that you could tell were not actually born and raised in Davidson, NC. The ordering... More

Excellent chili dog with Brightleaf weiner...the chili is great on fries too. I think the chicken tenders are better than some established chicken restaurants in the area.

My wife and I stopped in for the first time. We each ordered a burger with fries. It was similar to what you might get at Burger King. They also have hot dogs and chicken tenders on the menu. The young lady that took our order was pleasant. The inside of the restaurant is pretty sterile. They have a bunch... More

This was strictly a convenient place to stop for lunch and there is no real reason to return. The burgers were very dry and the "Carolina red hot" dogs didn't have the flavor or crisp texture of similar dogs we've enjoyed across the state.
