Gyro meat was fantastic. Humus for my taste was way to garlicky. Flexible menu they allow you to substitute.

Lebanese owners and their staff are extremely helpful and friendly every visit. The kabobs and shwarma are delicious. Salad is always fresh. I am glad to have a local non-chain kabob restaurant for eating. The plus is that it is great! The down side is that seating can be tight during their busy hours as this place is popular because...

They make the best greek salad of any restaurant I've tried. The Shwarna is delicious too because of their own sauce and spices. All of their food is authentic greek.

Having just moved to NC in the last 2 weeks, I noticed a large number of "kebab" places during my drive to work. I did the only natural thing a fella can do. I embarked on finding the best kebab on my drive to the office (between Wake Forest and RTP). I visited 4 places in 3 days. Charlies topped... More

Great food. The staff remembers you and remembers your order. Clean quiet atmosphere. Busy with school kids during the school year lunch hour though so you may have to wait a bit.

I visited with the high TA reviews in mind and was not disappointed. My baseline for this type of cuisine is always the gyro, and it is always nice to see the rotisserie in in a restaurant that sells gyros. Also had the Greek Salad and a side of hummus with pita. All the items were very good, not the... More

This place is awesome. Quick, friendly service and very fresh food. I tried the Hercules gyro and hot, crispy fries. The lamb is very fresh and juicy but not oily. Awesomely clean and well kept. In a very clean and quiet plaza in Wake Forest. Don't miss out!

Went here because of great reviews on TripAdvisor and agree with all the reviews. This is a great place for a quick flavorful place. Told Charlie we'd never been here before and he said let me take care if you. He put lamb on the grill and asked if we liked spicy. I said yes, hubby no. He said for... More

The staff at Charlie's is always helpful and attentive. If you don't know what to order, just ask for their advice. They have really reasonably priced lunch specials, and everything we have tried is delicious.
