I finally had lunch here yesterday. I have been trying to get there for months, but their winter hours had limited my chances. I had a great pulled pork sandwich, with plenty of meat. You could taste the delicious smoked flavor in the meat, and I tried both of the homemade sauces they had on the table, both being excellent.... More

I love the BBQ here and we always sit outside weather permitting. Lots of sides to choose from. The pulled pork is my favorite.

We were traveling from Chicago to eastern Michigan, taking the scenic route around the lake when we happened across this great little BBQ joint. Set in an remodeled and repurposed factory building turned retail space, the atmosphere was casual and relaxed. We bought the Big Daddy meal which included 2 sandwiches and 2 sides. We both got the pulled pork... More

Went for lunch on a Thursday. Really enjoyed the lulled pork sandwich. Was very tender & fell apart in your mouth. The greens & baked beans were also outstanding! This place was a great local spot.

Food was fantastic. Brisket and smoked turkey a favorite. Great sides of corn muffins, beans, mac & cheese and more. Good food at a good value.

I eat here once every couple weeks - they're a good BBQ place for lunch. My favorite is the brisket, but their pork is good too. The service is friendly and decently fast. Lunch probably costs me in the $7.50 - $10.00 range most times for me.

Consistent, yummy, and just like your momma makes. I recommend the Pulled Chicken with a side of Corn Casserole. :) Promise it will not disappoint.

Love this place -- great barbecue sandwich. Had the pulled pork sandwich and it was fabulous. Barbecue sauce at the table allows you to put as much or as little sauce on your sandwich that meets your taste buds. Just wish it was a little more affordable but it won't stop me from going back -- just not as frequently.

Had brisket and smoked turkey today, excellent. Mild barbecue sauce very nice. Worth the price. You must be kidding that this must be 100 characters

I have eaten at Charlies on several occasions and am never disappointed. Pulled pork is great, but the Beef Brisket is out of this world. Absolutely worth the trip.
