Walked in and was enthusiastically welcomed by one of the employees behind the counter. I told her it was my first time there so she explained their menu to me so i could figure out what I wanted. The second employee who was working behind the counter asked me how hungry I was and then provided me his suggestion....to get... More

Charlie is a truly wonderful person who enjoys what he does and loves his customers. He makes you feel like you are a guest that is a friend you haven't seen in awhile and actually takes care of you! He even took care of my 16 month old son to make sure he had something he liked!

Authentic food from Lebanon. Charlie is a character! He will remember you and make you laugh. Looove that he uses a lot of garlic and spices.

I've been going to Charlie's since they opened. I've never had anything that wasn't great. Not a white linen high-class place.....it's quick casual.....but that doesn't matter to me. I'm a huge fan of Mediterranean food and Charlie's fits the bill when I'm in the mood. Mediterranean Salad is huge and I almost never finish the whole thing.

It's small place with only a few tables, but it is not to be missed! I have eaten here quite a few times as I travel to the area on business a lot. The folks that work there are friendly and the food is great. Charlie talked me into the "Charlie's Special" a year or so ago and I end... More

I was visiting Wake Forest and decided to try Charlie's Kabob grill on the sole premise of it being rated #1 in Wake Forest. I stopped in for a lunch service and ordered the lamb gyro combo and a side of Greek pasta. Everything was just ok. Average to slightly above at best. I've had better gyro, I've had worse... More

The food is really good and is the only one of the Mediterranean flare in the area. We enjoy the food however it seems like it is set up for take out. There is no wait staff you order at a counter and then pick it up when it is done.. Glad the food is good. I would never rate... More
