Great food fast service!

We go there for lunch frequently. The service is very fast, the food is cooked as you wait (often for a very short period of time), and it is always hot and delicious! The owner came out to our table afterwards just to check on us and make sure everything was

Charlie's Kabob Grill is delicious. Their Gyro's are great very tender meat and packed full of flavor. I am not a huge fan of their hummus because you can taste the powdered garlic which I would much prefer fresh garlic. The Kefta was ok but way to much parsley. However the owner is great and makes you feel like family.... More

The day we went to Charlie's Kabob Grill the special was a steak gyro, fries and a drink for $6.99. The steak was melt in you mouth tender and the Tzatziki sauce was tangy and delicious. Even if you get the special, you can still substitute one of their many other sides for the fries for just $1 more. I... More

The food is very good and genuine. I married into a middle eastern family and the food is just like what I eat at family functions. The Gyro is my personal favorite.

My wife had the Charlie's special and I had the Gryo special. We both enjoyed our meals very much. Had some of the rice from my wife's plate and it was amazing, heck I liked her special better than mine. Did I mention the rice was excellent? They had the entire grill filled with kebabs when we were eating and... More

Charlie's is near my house, and I usually pick up dinner at least once a week. The gyros are great! I usually have a lamb and chicken kabob with a Greek salad, hummus and grape leaves! And of course a piece of baklava! Never disappointed, and they always welcome me back! They cater also! Oh yeah,and the taziki is great!

When we go in about once a week, they always recognize us and have our order started before we get to the counter. For a quick lunch, there's no place better. And the Shawarmas are always fantastic.
