I really love food at Char's but especially love their footling hot dog special!! Sometimes I also buy food to share with family!! They have delicious cake dish sundaes, too!

Eddie Z here again.this place reminded us of all American burgers in massapequa NY that was featured on food paradise! Great double cheeseburgers and perfectly cooked French fries with just the right amount of salt.Finished this off with a hot fudge sundae which was very good! Will stop here again when in Lexington.

Great hamburger and ice cream place. Food is good, staff is very friendly and efficient. An added bonus ios that they don't prepare your burger until you order it.
