I had never heard of Charlie's until my roommate told me about them and wow, I was beyond impressed when I paid them a visit. The food was delicious, the service was superb, and the prices weren't bad considering that you can fill up your plate as high as you like before cooking it in front of you. Don't miss... More

A truly unique dining experience. To have Mongolian Style food cooked on an open 48" dia. wook is one of a kind. All kinds of fresh veggies, noodles, seafood, pork, beef, and spices. Good for your tummy as Charlie says. Let Charlie recommend the spices " two tears".

Great Restaurant, Great pricing fantastic food. Charlie is the best, he just opened a new place on the east side called Big Bang Mongolian. Make sure you know how to cry like a grown man because he is going to ask you. Fresh vegetables and sauces

My first experience with Mongolian Grill was in Los Angeles and it was superb. I enjoy going to Charlie's and am happy to have a Mongolian Grill in Evansville -- so convenient. When I first started going there over 4 years ago the one thing I found done that was not encountered in LA was that the grill wasn't fully... More

The food is really good and the service is excellent, Charlie is very funny. The only bad thing about the place is that you have to pay by the plate. I would highly recommend Charlie's Margolian Bar B Q.

Every time we come to Evansville we eat here. It is our favorite. Charlie is also hiilarious and loves to tease you. Pile as much food as you can on one plate and they cook it for you! I suggest choosing to "cry like a man" if you like it spicy!

Charlie's is a great place for lunch or dinner. The food is fresh and the atmosphere is great. Charlie is always there greeting people with a smile. Fill your plate with fresh raw meat and veggies, tell them how many tears you want (spicy) and say, "do it like Charlie". You won't be disappointed.

This restaurant is great. All items are selected by you the customer and cooked directly in front of you while you wait. It is difficult to have the same thing twice because YOU pick what you want and how much of it you want. You cant go wrong with that. Charlie himself is a true gentleman and adds to the... More

This place doesn't look like much, but it is really VERY good. The value is great because unless you eat like a sumo wrestler you can easily get 2 meals out of one plate full of deliciousness. Make sure you pile it up high though as it cooks down and some gets lost in the process. The workers are extremely... More
