I always enjoy stopping on Rt 26 to pick up some great BBQ and sides at Charlie K's when they are open. The only downside is they are only open during the summer season....

We have ordered here (take out) several times in the past. This year, though, the ribs did not taste much of meat, or sauce, but overwhelmingly of salt; we have not had this experience before. We also tried the corn bread for the first time,...More

Though prices are kinda on high end, we still love this place. Being always so busy and long waits we now pre-order for a specific time. There is parking and limited seating outside. No bathrooms or inside seating.

We pulled over for a quick bite- awesome brisket sandwich. Ribs had a good flavor- a touch dry at the ends, but loved the spicing on the meat. Will visit when in the area again.

Fresh made pit beef, brisket and pork BBQ. Sandwiches are enormous with large helping of perfectly cooked meat. Sauces have great flavor. Platters reasonably priced with a variety of side options. Quick service.

Very small shop. Limited parking. No public restroom. That was the only negative to this wonderful little shop for sandwiches and sides. You buy meal you get cornbread and two sides. There is tables to eat or take to go.

Meats are very overpriced. They chop their pulled pork as opposed to pulling it, which is not a style of pork preferred by most people = most people prefer pulled strands of pork. Very expensive ribs and meats are average at best. Junky sides that...More
