Stopped for lunch and ordered two puller pork sandwich platters. Did not seem like the person taking the order was very thrilled to be working as zero personality. Although there are a few picnic tables most orders are to go. Food came quickly and we were asked if we wanted plastic knives and forks along with napkins, uh yes?

When my wife opened her box all was in order, when I opened mine someone just plopped a pile of pulled pork with no type of bun what so ever. Not sure how you forget to put a bun or bread on a sandwich.

Overall BBQ was above average and regardless of the issues above we certainly stop by again but check our order before we leave.

It IS just a shack and the food is to go (if there were any picnic tables I didn't see them). But the ribs are good -- truly "fall-off-the-bone." The pulled pork also was quite good. The teen staff were very friendly and the service was quick. Two minor quibbles: The sauce is very sweet and comes automatically slathered on the ribs. That, however, is a matter of personal taste; I would have preferred the ribs dry and the sauce a little tangier. We ordered macaroni and cheese and got macaroni salad instead. But it was fine and we ate it all up. The reviewers who note that the place often runs out of ribs are not kidding: I went at 5 pm on a Friday in August to stay ahead of the crowd; and kept the ribs warm until dinner. These are not the best ribs in the whole world but they are tasty and the price is good value.

We ordered our food to go .... When we got home the order was slightly messed up. No mac/cheese for one side and I ordered brisket and got pulled pork. Other than that no other complaints. Will definitely eat there again.

Charlie K,s is a great BBQsource. It is pretty much a take away place though they do have some outside tables. Ribs are great and pulled pork is another favorite. Sides are OK but I go for the BBQ and that is great! Go early as they close up when they run out of food!

Miss the way Bootsie's made the beef and pork. The cornbread is very good.
