“Burgers - The Way They Should Be”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

I have been to this restaurant just twice, but that is only because it is 3,000 miles from my home!

The outstanding flavor of the burgers, coupled with the "Happy Days" ambiance at John's Char Burger is like taking a step back in time. The charcoal flavor is extraordinary, the fries done to a golden perfection and the lemonade cold and tasty. For an added treat, try one of their milkshakes!

You won't be disappointed with your meal here!

“Even better second time! Beats fast food any day of the week.”
Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

Stopped by as promised for a second meal and it was better than the first. The cheese burger is excellent with fresh ingredients and cooked perfectly. Excellent fries and a wonderful chocolate malt. My husband had a double cheese burger, vanilla shake and fries. He stated that the meal was superior to anything that the fast food chains offered.

“Old fashioned hamburger, fries and a shake.”
Reviewed November 27, 2011

A good meal indeed. Hamburgers like they used to make them. Fresh ingredients tailored to your tastes. Perfect fries and milkshake made with real ice cream-not some non fat, non dairy concoction. A tastey combination that should be enjoyed from time to time. This establishment also features a wide varity of burgers in different sizes. The fries can be "super sized", but the regular order is more than enough for one person. Five flavors of shakes were offered, which is more than enough to satisfy your cravings. Other sandwiches were offered, but everyone was eating hamburgers and it was the same with the take out orders. I will definitely eat there again.
