“Decent Bar-B-Que”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

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.

“Try the pulled pork”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012 via mobile

Visited for a casual dinner following a long flight. Our hotel staffer suggested this over other BBQ places in the area. The good: spotlessly clean, excellent pulled pork, great spicy sauce, reasonably priced. Room for improvement: dim the fluorescent lights a little; improve the quality of the sandwich buns. Charlie's feels like a classic low budget joint...it wouldn't take much to compete with places charging twice as much.

“Good bbq, but the sides need some work”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2011

Location is very convenient for me - and many others - so the place is busy. (Only 1/2 mile off I85 - I show location as 8590 Pelham Road.) The pulled pork is good, but the baked beans and the cole slaw both seem to be straight out of the store. I would think they could dress these up a bit. Value is good - a 'jumbo' sandwich with two sides is <$7. I have to rate only average compared to top bbq places, including other places near by but harder to find (Bucky's in particular is my favorite).

“Better than it looks from the outside...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2010

cause it is in a small strip mall tucked behind a gas station. Not worth driving out of your way for - but since it is <a mile from interstate, you do not have to drive out of your way at all. If you are workign in the area, stop here at 8am and pick up hot bbq (just as they take it out of smiker) to have for lunch.
