Breakfast, lunch or dinner, the Char Broil delivers. It is basic diner fare, but the good is always good. Service is quick and efficient. You can get in and out if you're in a hurry, or just linger over coffee with friends. It's the perfect standby.

They also serve breakfast all day. The menu choices are extensive. Food is very good. Extremely busy place! As busy as it was, we didn't wait long for a booth or for a waitress to place our order. There was not a long wait for our lunch either.

Met some friends for dinner and two of us had the daily special of Chicken & Biscuits. Yum-o! Delicious chicken with flavorful gravy in just-the-right baked biscuits. Nikki provided us with outstanding service.

This place is a real hidden gem. The food is always good, the salad bar is excellent, and the prices are very fair. Service is fast and friendly, but it can get crowded at times. Most of the clientele are elderly, so be prepared for lots of canes and walkers.

The Charbroil restaurant is so popular, it's regularly full during peak meal hours ! However, if there is a line, it moves along, so only about 5 - 7 min. wait. Just arrive "off peak" if you can. Plenty of parking, all sides of the building. Once seated, you are NEVER rushed. You can continue a meeting, go on reading,... More
