I'm giving this place an Excellent rating, not because it rivals the best white linen dining establishments, but just because it is simply the Best for Burgers & Fries!

The burgers are exceptionally juicy, tasty with little bits of crispy char on them, complete with whatever toppings you wish (I even routinely write in "mustard", and they always fulfill).

It's fun to fill out your own ticket, then slide it down the order chute next to the char-grill that is covered with burgers, with flames licking the vent hood.
It's fun to have to remember your order number.
It's fun to stand under the portions of automobiles embedded into the walls, or choose a seat indoors on chrome or outdoors in the sun.
It's fun to pull your burger out of the bag (which comes with fries) and find that they piled a ton of fries into the bag; they're spilling out & available for nibbling.
It's fun to dip your fries into the little ketchup cups.

We've gone for years, and look forward to visiting one of the locations whenever we're in the area. Highly recommended for both huge & smaller burgers. Several locations in the Raleigh area - always get rave reviews. Enjoy!

I am never disappointed with my visit to Char-Grill. I always get the jr steak burger. It is always excellent! I also noticed that they serve Carolina Packer Bright Leaf hotdogs. You have to be local to appreciate these red hotdogs. If you're not a local be like the locals and give these red dogs try, you'll want more for sure!

Just a good burger. Upfront. Not much room to dine tho - best to buy and go. We ordered the 1/2 pound which lets you select the fillings.

Char-Grill is a good place to go when you want your burger with a little local flavor. They have a great car show every month which is fun to view.

We don't order the burgers, although I have heard they are great. We always get grilled chicken sandwiches with french fries and an apple turnover. The order is always right, prepared right in front of us and is so delicious and fresh!

We are not college students and just absolutely LOVE their food. We go there when we have been out late or want a quick yet oh so yummy dinner. The cooks are friendly (even though you can't really speak to them) and the cashier is always friendly and talkative. We have run into some pretty fun and entertaining people there. Char Grill is always a good time for food and fun. :)

Highly recommend this one for something cheap, delicious and quick.
