“One of my first stops when I come back to Rochester”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2010

You can't beat this place for burgers and Zweigle hots. The burgers are big, the fries are great, the counter staff is consistent. Charlie's is always one of my first stops after flying in to Rochester.

“Glorified cafeteria dining. OK, but not outstanding.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2010

Like a lot of similar eateries in the area, the atmosphere at Charlie Riedel's restaurants is basically glorified cafeteria dining. The food at any Charlie's location is a step or two above fast food; decent, but clearly not inspired or memorable. They deal in volume and not in outstanding quality. Make no mistake, this is not fine dining by any stretch of your imagination. The service at a Charlie's order-counter is usually a hit-or-miss affair; sometimes good and sometimes disorganized and disfunctional. We've eaten at this particular Charlie Riedel's location in Webster a number of times over the years with our latest visit in early September 2009. Our latest visit found good efficient counter service but only fair burgers and fries. Like most fast-food cafeterias, the burgers are very thin and they will overcook your burger until it's dry, tough, and tasteless unless you tell them not to. Even though I asked them to cook my burger "medium" on this visit, they still managed to cook it long enough to dry it out. Go figure. Our bill for burgers, fries, and beverages for three of us totaled $22. Definitely better eats and better selection than a McDonald's or Burger King, and an OK place to take the kids for about the same amount of money. Having said all of that, I will say that the burgers at Charlie Riedel's are without a doubt better than any burger you'll get at any Bill Gray's Restaurant in the Rochester area. Enjoy!
