Charlie's is THE go-to place for my wife and me when we go to Wake Forest. The Mediterranean food is fresh, flavorful, and, in a word, fantastic! I never get anything but the "Charlie's special" (a Greek salad, Lebanese rice, and lamb gyro meat with delicious taziki sauce). My wife likes the kabobs or the gyros. The service is also... More

So, we've lived in the area for about 8 months and had seen the signs and the outside but hadn't ever ventured in and we recently got a coupon in the mail for a free meal with the purchase of another meal and two drinks and we thought 'why not'. Well, it was so good, that we came back the... More

We love a quick, healthy, and tasty meal at Charlie's Kabob. We always get the platters where you can choose your sides. Love the lamb shwarma with greek salad, humous, and pita. Prices are good too! Staff is friendly and you can eat in or take out.

While I usually get a Greek salad with a chicken Kebob, every now and then I get a gyro or souvlaki. Outstanding Greek/Mediterranean for a tristate transplant!

Visited today with the hubs and daughter. Monday's special is lamb gyro with fries and a drink for $6.49. The owner/manager/Charlie(?) turned back a meal because he did not feel the cook had prepared the fries well enough. He said they needed to be golden. Suchvprude he had in his product. I was impressed. On the whole this little restaurant... More

We came across Charlie's (off of Capital) a few years after moving to the Wake Forest area, and decided to give it a try. I brought home a sampling of their offerings to try out and it went over well, and we've been regulars for the last 5 years or longer. Great food, and great value.

First let me be clear that this "average" rating only pertains to this particular visit. Typically, the food is really good. Visited here on a Thursday evening. Ordered Charlie's Special and a Spicy T Wrap. The gyro meat which comes in both dishes wasn't very good this time and I think the reason is because it was cut into think... More

This was an incredible finding!! Didn't look like much from the outside, but once inside you will find an incredibly clean place with super friendly staff. I had the daily special with the Chicken Gyro, Pita and Hummus, and I even got a free piece of Baklava for being my first time. I would definitely recommend it!! And I WILL... More
