We went to this place late in the evening because it was convenient on the way home. The burgers are good as are the fries. I do think the seating area could be cleaner.and more pleasant. This is a more recent edition to an established Raleigh business and has a lot of promise but needs to kept in better condition... More

I was dubious when I saw this branch of the great Raleigh hamburger drive-in, but now I go there by choice. It's much closer, there's indoor seating, and the burgers are exactly the same -- i.e., chargrilled in that inimitable way, with accessories to order. Fried pies are pretty good, too.

My husband and I love Char-Grill. It is an old fashion style burger joint with relatively quick service, as meals are prepared as the orders are placed. As you walk in you will find steel tables and chairs, and the window. At the window there are order tablets that you fill out, and then slide your order through a small... More

Always enjoy Char-grill! Great fries and service at all locations. This particular location is very convenient. People not familiar with this franchise should give it a try.

This is a great place for a quick burger that is prepared well and very tasty. Also a great place for an inexpensive, but filling lunch. The fries are hot and tasty, too. All in all, a trip to Char-Grill is a good thing.

A must-do experience for burger lovers! Circle what you want on the paper, drop it in the chute, wait for a made-to-order deliciously grilled burger and fries. Prices good, service not an issue (like fast-food pickup but with dine-in quality), and the burgers are phenomenal!

Being from the northern part of the US we don't have little grill places like this. I went in with my mom and brother and we got hamburgers made to order and watched them grill them. We got fries and three drinks. The total cost was under $20.00 and when I tell you the food was delicious, that is an... More

Had two hotdogs and they were very good. The fries were very hot, and the people were friendly. Great trip.

We love the Char-Grill...used to have to drag ourselves down to Raleigh to go to the Char-Grill but now there's one in Durham. Great burgers, fries, shakes for reasonable price, nice new and clean restaurant in great location. Recent health department score: 101! Can't get any better than that. Beats every fast food place around..and even higher priced burger places.... More
