“A piece of Lagrange history”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

This is, to Lagrange, what the Varsity is to Atlanta. Very special ambiance, classic greasy spoon, world's best hot hot dogs and hamburgers and perfect fountain cokes. If you are from Lagrange, this is the first place you go when you come home, after you see your mama.

“Historical, unique, fast food”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

If you are visiting Lagrange, this is a place you have to experience. Sitting at the counter, watching the staff running all over the place cooking your hot dogs and burgers. Get a coke in the bottle, look at the decor and snap a picture of yourself! Charlie Joesph's is famous! You can look on their website for further info and a menu. Go during breakfast or lunch time because they are not open in the evenings.

“Downtown”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

The downtown location has all the interest and the least elbow room. Expensive for hotdogs but a great choice nonetheless. Don't miss this place! Every town should have one. I wish mine did!

“Simple food Great people!”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

While they are often very busy the food is always excellent and simple!!! We love going here, especially with the children :) The prices are very reasonable/cheap and the people who work there couldn't be nicer! It is just a great place to stop and eat.

“Chili dogs and Coca-Cola. Yes please!”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

Just a great, all-around place to take the family. For children, they will cut up a hot dog and will write their name in ketchup on the plate. Or sometimes children will request a specific cartoon character or even a wacky, silly face - the staff happily complies with the requested 'ketchup art.'

I love their chili cheese dogs - all the way. Simply delicious. Top those off with some chips and a bottle of Coca-Cola makes a perfect meal where everyone is happy.
