    A Raleigh treasure. Fantastic flame grilled burgers. Busy place but always worth the wait. Great shakes too.

    Flip to the back of the order pad to get a number that's easy to remember.

    Always open late, and sporting old school flair, Char Grill does a burger right.

    It's not just the burger (delicious), but the experience. It's been a staple of Raleigh for as long as I can remember. Best done after midnight on the weekends-

    sometimes i come here just for a diet pepsi with little ice in a styrofoam cup. if you do that, you don't have to wait in line. but the fries and shakes are also really good.

    Char-Grill is an important part of our hamburger history. It has remained untouched by modern trends—even the prices seem to be a throwback. Read more

    Everything here is good.. Hot dogs, hamburgers, fries, shakes. You must try it all at some point.

    Beware they don't like accepting groupons and even charged us the tax to use our groupon BS

    Also, I've seen grown vegetarians cry and then break just from the smell of this place. Be aware of the huge lunch rush and pack of late diners on weekends. Worth the wait, though.

    I've had great burgers in NC, CA, UT, many other states, France and England, and char-grill beats even the most magnificent of other burgers. Try the hamburger steak sandwich! You'll get hooked.
