Unique ordering system - Good burgers & Fries

Pen and paper ordering system from 50's - pretty cool throw back (you can order online these days too and they have a wider selection when doing so). Burgers were good, fries nice and crispy. Hadn't been to one in years but i think I may be a regular now!

Old school way of ordering just like it should be. Burgers are great and by far the best fast food burger I've had. Fries could use a little more salt. Apple pie was ok, would not get it again. Milk shakes are HUGE and delicious. Will be back when in the area again.

The food tastes great, but is a bit expensive and their is often a line during lunch. I would recommend going with a group so you have someone to talk to while you wait.

Char Grill... YUCK! When first moving to Raleigh several years ago from Atlanta and The Varsity Drive-In, I was relieved to see that Raleigh had a good hotdog place. I ordered two chili dogs and after just a bite or two, I was really turned off by the tasteless wiener... it was WHITE, it was so pale because it was... More

Raleighites know there are 3 good quintessentially NC burger places to get your fill of cheap, greasy food. Snoopy's hot dogs are great but the rest of the menu is just so so. Cookout feels (and is priced) more like a meal than a snack. Chargill gives you the best of both worlds. The menu is pared down to the... More

If you have been in business, between NCSU and the Capitol, for 55 years, you must be doing something right! The 1/2 lb. hamburger steak sandwich with french fries and a medium (large anywhere else) drink is a meal plus. The burgers are juicy, not greasy and the condiments are plenty. The fries are not the hand-cut from 55 years... More

No pretension, just great burgers that taste fresh. Behind Cook Out and Backyard these guys are hard to beat for the money.

Fast food with really no place to sit. A place just a place to eat regular ordinary food. Nothing to special about their burgers- def not mouth watering.

My parents and I go to Char Grill every once in a while after church. I'm always very excited to eat an amazing burger. Once you hand in your order, you have to wait quite a while for your food. The burgers are great but your meal isn't worth the wait unless you order a milkshake. The food is amazing... More
