I live in Middlebury and we do not have a chicken Charlie's in my area. So when i started my new job in the area i had heard good things about the food here and had to give it a try. I ordered a Asian...mango chicken salad. It was VERY tasty, but my only complaint was that it was VERY spicy. nowhere did it say spice. I have had Asian salads elsewhere and it was never this hot. I added the vt ginger dressing and it killed a bit of the spice. I would eat it again, now knowing but it was still a bit of a shocker at first.More

My husband and I ordered food from here last night. We love BBQ so figured we would give them a try. I got the 8 bone ribs with two sides and he got the wings and ribs. We both got the mashed potatoes. My husband...couldn’t eat his because of the chives so I have them for left overs. The baked beans were really good and my husband liked the Mac and cheese. The ribs were really good (I have them for leftovers) and my husband said the wings were decent. The roll was okay and the gravy reminded me a lot of the Swiss Chalet gravy (being a Canadian) which my husband doesn’t like but I do. Overall, it was a very good meal and while we are in Vermont, we will definitely order from Chicken Charlie’s again. Edit - we had curbside pickup. We are within a 2 minute drive from the location. We arrived around the time our food was ready to be picked up. We called to let them know we were there and someone came out a few minutes later with the food.More

Desperately seeking a place to eat in the shut down world that was April of 2020. An hour and a half from home and famished. Attempts to secure a decent burger falling flat time after time as restaurants indicating they're open for take-out, aren't. As...a last ditch effort, she says, "What about Chicken Charlie's? Sounded like a dumb idea but no worse than continued frustration. Long story short. The staff at Chicken Charlie's was flat out, going a hundred miles per. They delivered the best burger I've had in a long time to our car. Cooked to perfection, topped with fresh produce and accompanied by lightly seasoned and non greasy waffle fries. I approached CC as "any port in a storm" but will visit them with appreciation, admiration and a severe hankering for good food in the future.More

Comfort food for 3 travellers. Tired and just out the plane, this was a perfect choice for a quick meal. Try the chicken soup, it’s so good and very filling. I would stop there again. Very friendly service.

Went here with high expectations. The place is a small fast food looking place. You order from a pizza place type menu sign. We had garlic wings, Mac n cheese and fries. All was just ok. There was very little garlic in the garlic parm...sauce. Food was hot, but just average wings. Mac and cheese? My daughter ate 3 bites and threw it out. The fries were good. Mark this as a middle of the road place. At best.More

This is a traditional "fast food" stop. I understand that and my expectations were in line with that. We stopped by on Saturday at lunch time. Still.. the rotisserie chicken was average at best. BBQ chicken shouldn't be bland and tasteless. Service was very very...slow, tables were soiled. My wife ordered a chicken leg basket. She got HALF a leg, the drumstick only .... kinda like getting from the knee down. No thigh at all. Don't know how someone serves half a meal for full meal price. Really? Sorry guys! I know the owner can't be there 7 days a week but ..... oops.More

This restaurant is by far my favorite place for fried chicken. Not everyone in Vermont understands how to do good fried chicken, but this restaurant is absolutely astounding. On top of this they serve the best French fries as well as the best onion rings...in town. The service is always fantastic and everyone who works here is so friendly. I cannot recommend chicken Charlie’s enough.More

We often pick a place to eat for lunch at work and have someone go pick up for everyone, and Chicken Charlies has yet to disappoint anyone at my job! Chicken is cooked perfectly every time. I've yet to have it cooked any way that...I didn't like it. Easy 5 starsMore
