Chicken Charlie's, a featured dining destination visited by ABC7's Hungry Hound, dishes smoked ribs and briskets alongside more than a dozen varieties of sandwiches. Bold vermillion walls border the brightly lit dining room, where guests nosh on items from the restaurant's menu of meaty entrees, none of which were ever frozen or recreated for a wax museum. Dig digits into a half or full slab of piquant baby back ribs ($10.95–$19.95), slathered in tangy blanket of barbecue sauce and smoked to a supple tenderness. Savory sandwiches soak soft buns with piles of pulled pork ($5.95–$7.95) and Cajun chicken ($5.95–$7.15), and leaf-lovers can tempt taste buds with one of Chicken Charlie's salads. Free WiFi streaming throughout the space allows customers to email their meals with compliments in real time.
Chicken Charlie's grills and smokes fresh, never-frozen chicken that ABC7's "Hungry Hound" Steve Dolinsky says “arrives tender and juicy, not overcooked.” The eatery's menu abounds with slabs of ribs slathered in barbecue sauce, brisket sandwiches, and baked potatoes stuffed with grilled chicken breast and dressed in cheddar cheese. Catering services supply ample eats for coworkers, birthday partygoers, or hoarders who contend that Y2K has just been biding its time before striking.
