Simple quality Bar-B-Que

We attend here for lunch frequently. This is a great place to get a quick lunch or dinner. Food is reasonably priced and served quickly. The food is good - not spectacular but prices are reasonable and food is satisfying.

I have visited three different Bar-B-Que joints since moving to Greenville about a year ago. Charlie's is by far the best I have been to. This is not a fancy place and is located in a small shopping center at the intersection of Pelham Rd and Highway 14. You place your order and the meat is prepared right in front... More

Been away for ~ 4 years and went back as soon as I could....it was like I never left (except the fries have become kind'a sketchy). Sandwich plate, hot sauce (not really hot just kicked up a bit), fries and slaw ... as another person said...food is in your hand before you've paid....

Good BBQ place. Nothing spectacular but definitely worth trying. Food was good and service was quick, your food is in your hand by the time you pay for it. Plenty of food for the price.

Never had upstate SC bbq before. HUGE portions of meat. Sauce was outstanding. Hot version much better than mild.

The mustard sauce, hot barbeque sauce, and the coleslaw were very good! The buns were straight from the grocery store - nothing special, The people were friendly but I'd like to have had a little more room between the tables. It felt like we were a bunch of sardines packed on top of one another at lunch time.

I have been coming to Charlie's for years. It is a great local joint if you're looking for a casual dining experience. The plates are definitely shareable and the sides are all delicious. They have recently added extra sides to the menu as well. Every plate comes with chips, so that's a nice little added bonus. They give you plenty... More

If you happen to be in the area, this place has decent BBQ. Not the best, but not the worst. All plates come with potato chips so if you order fries you have fries and chips. Super fast service. No waitstaff you have to clear your table and get your own drink refills.

Charlies has decent pulled pork barbecue. It was tasty, but not the best I have had in Greenville. The sides were good as well. The potato salad and beans. It is great for lunch doring the week, since you can get in and out fast and it is convenient on Pelham Road.
