Charlie's doesn't look much different than your average restaurant. It is clean, neat, has plenty of parking.....That's where ordinary ends. The menu is huge and everything I have tried has been great and very reasonably priced. They feature half off breakfast everyday. They make a lamb shank dinner that is delicious. Their hamburgers are huge and they use fresh meat..Chili... More

This place is sorta like a Frisch's. Large menu with a lot of variety. Reasonable prices/good for a family. Portions reasonable. Soup, out of a can not homemade. Clean, wasn't crowded and quick service. Side salad came with ham on it. Sandwich and soup approx. $8-9. Kids menu. It's nothing special, but ok for a quick meal. Booths and tables.... More

Visited here for breakfast on a trip to see family in Toledo. The breakfast was very good and certain menu items are 1/2 price until 11am with the purchase of beverage. It's nothing fancy but has good food for a pretty great price.

Good / average Mac and cheese , many years ago I think it might have been a different & better recipe . Got our order wrong because the person rushed us so bad and didn't repeat it.

A friend and I were looking fo some place new for lunch and took a chance on Charlies's. The food was average and nothing spectacular. I'll probably go back knowing it is just another option.

Large menu with so many things from which to choose. Breakfast all day, some Mid-East selections, good burgers, hot sandwiches, fab desserts, name it. Very reasonably priced.

Been going to Charlie's ever since ol' Kyriakos Kyriakou opened his first Toledo place in the late and lamented Southwyck Mall. Learned to love gyros at a young age, I did. Watching "Charlie" hector his staff to work as hard as he did was awe-inspiring. Fast-forward to today and some of those young servers are still working for him, and... More

Charlies Restaurants in the Toledo area truly serve some amazing food at very reasonable prices. I have traveled all around the country and have never found a better Gyro. The Gyro meat is cooked perfectly. The flavor is wonderful and the meat has always had that perfect amount of crispyness. They make all there own dressings and sauces. The Thousand... More

This is a very good place to get a tasty meal at a reasonable price. We had seen this place in passing before but had never had a chance to try it. It sports a fairly attractive exterior which belied the fact that it was a Coney Island. The interior was also rather nice giving the place a pleasant and... More
