Downtown last week. Doing the market thing. Picking up fresh peaches. Having a look around. Time for lunch, a friend mentioned the Charred Rotisserie. Everyone had a different lunch. Service was fast. Food good. Go back, yes.

I can't believe this place gets anything less than 5 stars! Their chicken is succulent and perfectly seasoned at great prices. The menu is simple & short but oh so good. Their house made Peri Peri sauce is incredible & goes with everything.
