“Delicious food and good service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

Charlie Staples has some of the best barbecue in Mahoning County! The food is delicious, the atmosphere is incredible, and the service is so warm and friendly. Mr.Staples is such a great man and a great restaurateur! I would definitely recommend!

“Some of the better bbq in the area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

Staples has good bbq ribs and chicken. The sauce has a paprika base, so I have to have a taste for it as my mother makes a great beer-based bbq sauce. The menu is spartan, but what they have on it, they do well.

“Went here during my internship.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

Had an internship in Youngstown and my boss and I went to lunch here. It was REALLY tasty, and the prices were right. Don't let anybody fun of you for wearing a bib - I wasn't about to wear my food the rest of the day.

“Charlie Staples is worth a visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

When we first arrived at Charlie Staples we were impressed at this old building restored in great condition - clean looking and sharp looking from the outside, with Jazz music playing in the parking lot. Once inside, we were intrigued by the New Orleans decor with murals painted on the walls, and transitioning into a real second story balcony protruding from the wall and then disapearing again into the mural. The inside was also very clean. The food was good but not outstanding but the overall experience was worth the visit. I'd recommend the barbecued chicken over the ribs. Charlie's sause is unusual - very thin and sweet; not my favorite. The quality of the food was good.
