We stumbled upon Charley's looking for a quick lunch stop on our drive home to Portland. So glad we did! The service was fast and courteous and the food was much better than other fast food chains in the area. The sandwiches come dry but Charley's offers a variety of BBQ sauces so you can pick your favorite and apply... More

We went there for lunch and ordered the 'special' on the chalk board. Was told it wasn't ready. neither was the sauce we like. Chicken was dry. The 'Hot" pastrami was barey warm. Service could be better. When I asked about the live music as on several wall posters, I was told that was something the previous owner did. So... More

We always eat at Charley's. This is the best barbecue in Roseburg, hands-down. The tri-tip is awesome and we love the large selection of sauces that are available. There was a change of ownership that didn't affect the food quality at all. Another reviewer mentioned no longer getting hush puppies with their meal. We've been eating here for 3 years... More

I had the pulled pork sandwich. Very good, lots of tender, moist pork. Took home a full rack of baby back ribs. Also very good. Nice people. Clean and well maintained place. Just off the freeway. Will be back.

We have been going to Charley's for 9 years. We have always loved their food, until now. The last 2 times we have been there, the food was not up to par. This last time, we learned you no longer get hush puppies with your meal and they have cut the sides back to just a few. I wanted my... More

I used to really enjoy Charley's. The last couple of times we have been there...Not so much! I always get the chicken, so that is what my review is based on. Last time it was not cooked completely. Had to microwave it and let's just say the dog enjoyed it more than I did. I called and Chris offered a... More

Went here based on TripAdvisor reviews, so we were surprised to walk in and find the place practically empty. Service was quick, prices are reasonable, but the brisket was average at best. Probably would not eat here again.

Okay...looks like a joint...minimum parking and paper plates, BUT the best babybacks we've had in years. Take your time reading the menu because it's more varied then what a first glance offers.
