We drove from downtown Phoenix for this restaurant and it was well worth it! Friendly and quick service and awesome food. I split the shrimp with a friend and there was five huge pieces to share. The prime rib was cooked to perfection and was so tender and juicy. Friends had the mac and cheese and loved it. I'm glad... More

Three of us for dinner. Passed on appetizers in favor of dessert. Entrees were excellent-ribs, steak, and chicken. For dessert we had creme brûlée. Another excellent meal. Service was very good-efficient and friendly.

Professional move on your food choices and so happy you enjoyed them. Next time however try an appetizer. Our shrimp cocktail with our "killer" cocktail sauce is truly one of the best in the valley. More

Great ribs and onion strings! I love the house anchovy dressing - although pricey for a side salad with no bells & whistles. Been coming here since the early '80's and they are always consistent with their food and service. As of 1/1/17, the Early Bird menue was discontinued and they started charging for the extra ganache. They also charged... More

Thank you for your kind words. I will share your thoughts with our staff. I appreciate your comments on the house salad and we will look into making improvements. As far as far as pricing goes, we still feel like we are a good value. Unfortunately we live in a time when everything is costing more. More

Don and Charlie's is always a reliable good choice and tonight was no exception. The food and service were very good. It was New Year's Eve so the crowd was a little different than usual, but that just added to the entertainment factor in the restaurant. I'm also happy that they offered their normal menu and not something special like... More

The sports memorabilia is amazing ( baseballs signed by the likes of Babe Ruth ) and the food was very good.

This restaurant is a classic. Sports memorabilia everywhere. BBQ ribs are wonderful, order them charred. Southwest sauce is excellent. Salmon and other items are delicious. Don, "the main man" is most enjoyable to talk with. His many years of being a restauranteur makes for wonderful stories.

The sports memorabilia may seem overwhelming, but the most memorable part of the experience is the meat -- a giant beef rib for me and a perfect piece of prime rib for my wife. Just doesn't get any better. Get to the Phoenix area every couple of years and this is one of must do's.

We arrived on a very busy Friday night, the ASU football Coach hosting potential recruits and a Christmas party. Still we were seated in the lounge within 10 minutes. We went back a few nights later and really enjoyed the food both times. Steak, prime rib and broasted chicken were all excellent and good value for the money. I liked... More

I did not fight my way to the top of the food chain to graze or have my spare ribs fall off the bone and into my lap! I love meat and I love ribs that I can gnaw off the bone. Although we've eaten at Don & Charlie's in the past their "charred ribs" somehow slipped past me. Don't... More
