This is the place if you want hugh new mexican dishes -chili cheesburgers. The portions are so big that it is pretty painful to look at the creampuffs near the check out. They make their own tortillas that people pick up one and two packs of. AND, they let our little dog in to sit under our table. Does it... More

In Texas, where I live, it's hard to find green chile unless I make it myself, and hence, when I visited Las Vegas, my mother's home town, Charlie's was easy to find because it's right on the town square--about a block from where mom grew-up. The green chile at Charlie's is thick and milky, not the watery stuff some restaurants... More

I found this when passing through as a complete surprise. My first impulse was to stop my trip and take up residence in the bakery case. Sadly, that was not an option. So now days, I try and stop in whenever I'm passing through and have even been known to schedule my drive so that I'll be sufficiently hungry.

Never had the dishes they serve in SC, was incredible, I wish I had a gallon of their green chili, not sure what I ate, a puffy tortilla with an incredible filling topped with the green chili. Their pastries are great. Would eat here every day if I lived here.

Well worth a visit. Their glazed donut is superb, mine particularly so still slightly warm from the cooker. Great Starbucks coffee as well.

FOOD: Good chips and the salsa is homemade with a nice little bite. So many delicious choices. Not sure I would have the cheese filled chile relleno again as it wasn't loaded with flavor. Everyone else in our group loved their food. There are so many fun choices - breakfast all day, loads of typical Mexican/New Mexican items. Prices may... More
