While I usually get a Greek salad with a chicken Kebob, every now and then I get a gyro or souvlaki. Outstanding Greek/Mediterranean for a tristate transplant!

I was impressed. On the whole this little restaurant... More

We came across Charlie's (off of Capital) a few years after moving to the Wake Forest area, and decided to give it a try. I brought home a sampling of their offerings to try out and it went over well, and we've been regulars for the last 5 years or longer. Great food, and great value.

First let me be clear that this "average" rating only pertains to this particular visit. Typically, the food is really good. Visited here on a Thursday evening. Ordered Charlie's Special and a Spicy T Wrap. The gyro meat which comes in both dishes wasn't very good this time and I think the reason is because it was cut into think... More

This was an incredible finding!! Didn't look like much from the outside, but once inside you will find an incredibly clean place with super friendly staff. I had the daily special with the Chicken Gyro, Pita and Hummus, and I even got a free piece of Baklava for being my first time. I would definitely recommend it!! And I WILL... More

The food is the best. It's fresh, hot, and made to order. I like it spicy! The hummus is outstanding. The staff is insightful. Charlie is great! It is a taste of Middle Eastern goodness every time. It's always good.

Excellent experience with every visit. Service is great from the minute you walk in the door. Food is fabulous. Loves that all of the food is prepared as it is ordered and you can watch it being made. Wonderful family owned business.
