Eaten here a few times. I always seem to give it another chance or if they have an interesting special on the advertising board. The gyros are small and the cheese for the fries is funky. The hot dogs are ok but nothing special, considering the place is called Charcoal I expected more of a BBQ taste. There are other... More

This little place looks like nothing as you drive by , but don't drive by ! It's a hidden treasure. I think it's family owned ? The service is friendly ( when the girls behind the counter aren't busy flirting with a cute guy who just walked in ) but overall great. It's nothing fancy but DELICIOUS homemade food. It... More

Whether you go in or try drive through, staff is not good at taking orders, wait for food is very long and food is mediocre at best. Other location in Chicago is far superior.

Everyone says great broasted chicken, and I have had it before and it had been very good in the past. Until today. The broasted chicken that they served to me had to have been left over from yesterday. It was completely dried out and very tough, reheated the wrong way or something. I would rather that they had told me... More

Every basic sandwich (burger, beef, polish, etc) I have had here has been good. The chicken is worth picking up for a crowd for dinner.

This is a great choice for a quick lunch when you get tired of fact food / chain restaurants. Very friendly staff and generous portions. Wide variety of selections.
