“Authentic Baltimore barbecue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2012

The Charcoal Grill is just a simple walk-up stand - One window to order, another to pick-up. They offer various sandwiches, ribs, wings, etc. But if you're going here you have to get the pit beef and fries. They have the usual selection of pit beef, ham, and turkey; sliced thin and cooked to your liking. The fries are fresh cut, and are fantastic with the usual Baltimore condiments of vinegar and old-bay. The ribs are pretty decent too. This is place is what Baltimore barbecue is all about.

“Yummy takeout”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2010

This is a stand. You order at one window, wait a maximum of 10 minutes & pick up at another. The pit beef & barbecue sandwiches are great. The boardwalk style fries are always hot & tasty. Portions are large. Coupons are sent in local mailers.

This is certainly not a dine-in restaurant but rather a pit beef stand with excellent food. Don't miss out on the pit-beef sandwich and a cup of fries.

“Yummo!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2008

I had the Rib Dinner with the Hickory Smoke sauce- $15.99. it came with fries and a side. I got the MD Crab soup. THe soup was very good and so were the fries. The sauce was one of the better I have had. The ribs them selves were average- they we fatty and a bit dry and tough (I have had better ribs).

My Husband had the Open-Pit beef sandwich. He had it with mayo and onions. It was very good. We both agree next time to try it with sauce.

Beware there is now where to sit down so it is a carry out place. You can call ahead but it doesn’t take long.

They had Hot Apple Cider for free to drink while you waited- that was Yummy!

There are tons of other things on the menu and I can’t wait to go back and try!
