I liked it a lot! The three of us ate very well for 25 bucks. My only wish is that cornbread was available rather than almost dried out hamburger rolls. I will look into that next time, but overall it was very good. Extremely fast service I love the sides, the sauces were outstanding. We didn't try the french fries... More

We had lunch at Charlie's today. Very good pulled pork sandwich. The sandwich had so much meat it was falling out

If you walk into a barbecue place and don't smell smoke then you should be concerned. No concerns here at all, good smoke flavor goes through the meat and with a side of Mac & cheese and some fresh fries I was set for an excellent dinner. Looking forward to another visit!!

The bbq here is fantastic. I have had the regular bbq sandwich plate and it is plenty of food. Everybody here is super friendly.

This is a good stop...with the right expectations going in. If you're looking for a place with ambiance, original personality, and absolute authentic bbq...keep looking. If your looking for a basic decent meal, served quick, at a very reasonable price...this might be your stop. Choices are limited, so service is fast. I enjoyed my meal as did the three others...

great little place on pelham road / highway 14. Always pretty busy for lunch, but the size of the portions are pretty good, and the plates you get are really tasty. the seated area is a bit "run down" i guess you could call it, with pretty old seats and tables, but still .. you arent there long to really...

We attend here for lunch frequently. This is a great place to get a quick lunch or dinner. Food is reasonably priced and served quickly. The food is good - not spectacular but prices are reasonable and food is satisfying.

I have visited three different Bar-B-Que joints since moving to Greenville about a year ago. Charlie's is by far the best I have been to. This is not a fancy place and is located in a small shopping center at the intersection of Pelham Rd and Highway 14. You place your order and the meat is prepared right in front... More

Been away for ~ 4 years and went back as soon as I could....it was like I never left (except the fries have become kind'a sketchy). Sandwich plate, hot sauce (not really hot just kicked up a bit), fries and slaw ... as another person said...food is in your hand before you've paid....
