Great Backyard Burger Taste

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... read 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.

Our family had a very good experience at Char-grill. Good food, and good shakes. Service is good and prices are reasonable. I would go back.

Great burgers and shakes. Employees are friendly and seem to really care about what they are doing. Just a fun place to go after a game or for a quick bite.

Char-Grill has a limited menu but they do burgers very well with good fries. It's always crowded with families and students, but counter service is prompt and courteous. You fill your own drinks at the drink station, which is nice for refills.

We take a trip to Davidson for a Char-Grill burger every now and then. They have a large selection of toppings and everything is fresh. The staff always check by to see if everything is good. It is very reasonably priced and filling. It is a bit out of our way but is worth the trip.
