Always consistent. Always busy. Excellent burger! Worth the wait when in the area. If you have never tried Char-Grill I would highly recommend.

This isn't a McDonalds quality hamburger joint, hence the higher prices I'm sure. Outdoor dining was the only option (or your car). Food is fresh. You order your meal on a sheet with your specific requests. So if you write it down wrong, it's your problem. It's made to order. If you're craving a good burger, it's rated one of... More

I visit this location a few times a year when I am visiting family near by. The burgers are great, better than any of the bigger burger chains. Make sure you give the Bar-B-Que sandwich and the hot dog (with chili or slaw) a try as well though. And most importantly, don't pass on the fries!

I love the hot dogs at this place, I just wish they weren't so expensive. There is no reason that 2 dogs, fries and drink should be close to eights bucks. Fun to take the kids too.

If you're visiting Raleigh (and like hamburgers), you really should visit a Char-Grill location. You pencil in your order on an order slip; you can customize your sandwich/burger and add side items. After you're finished, slide your order down a little metal chute. And then wait as you see them prepare your order through the glass windows. The french fries... More

Drove by twice thinking " it can't be that shack!" Well it was, and the line outside spoke for itself! Took a minute to realize you place your own order on a slip of paper, slide the paper through a slot, then wait. Tasty (not greasy) burgers, piping hot fries and seriously chocolate milkshake. We understand why it's NC's burger... More

this burger joint is small, simple and quite enjoyable. the other locations may vary in terms of appearance, style and or offering... guess i should try them all to compare. fresh meat burgers on fresh bread, fresh veggie toppings and reasonably speedy service. the fries were also terrific - fresh, crispy and flavorful. no weight watchers points on this menu,...

Char-Grill is a Raleigh must - if you cant make it to this one you need to go to the Hillsboro street location or one of the other Raleigh stores! Always worth the visit! Dont forget your chocolate shake for dipping your french fries!
