We stopped in for a quick bite while attending the BBQ festival. Place was pretty crowded but we got our order pretty quick. I liked this place because of the old school feel of the restaurant. Staff was very nice and our food was good.

Everything on the menu is dirt cheap and delicious. I've probably ordered everything on the menu at least once each and I've never had a bad experience. The bathrooms are the ONLY downside, being very small and in a very old building, but everything else...More

I have eaten at Char's several times and they never disappoint. The burger and fries are like I remember growing up and you get your food very quickly. The service is never slow and the people that work there are always friendly!!

It is really fun to find a local place that has great hamburgers and hot dogs and Chars has both at really good prices. So when you get tired of the same oldthing from the big corporate burger places check this local place out.

Get the Footlong Hot Dog special. It's really good! The fries are good too! It's a small place, but the service is excellent and fast. It stays busy around lunchtime, so get there early. They also have really good milkshakes and ice cream that you...More
