Our Original Raleigh, NC Location on Hillsborough Street

Come visit the Char-Grill where it all started. Since 1959, we have been serving up juicy burgers, flavorful hot dogs, crisp french fries and more. Located on the outskirts of downtown Raleigh, no trip to the Capital City is complete without a visit to Char-Grill.

Order one of our mouthwatering hamburger steaks, with the toppings you like and watch as we prepare it for you on the spot. We believe in serving our customers fresh food, so you will never see us putting a pre-cooked burger on a bun like our competitors.

Grilled to Perfection at Our 27603 Location

Char-Grill does not hide the secret to what makes our food taste so good, just look at our name. We have been cooking our food the same way for over five decades now, over an open-flame, so you are guaranteed to get an authentic grilled taste with every hamburger, hot dog or chicken sandwich you order.

The heat from the flame of our grill allows our burgers to get a nice crisp on the outside while remaining juicy on the inside, and the rising smoke off the grill creates our famous Char-Grill taste.

Come for the Nostalgia, Stay for the Burgers & Fries

Char-Grill is proud to be an institution in Raleigh for more than five decades now. We like to remind our customers of our beginnings with our slogan “Simpler Times, Simpler Choices.” When you visit Char-Grill it will be hard to resist the urge to let your thoughts wander to old Chevy trucks and jukeboxes. Every visit to Char-Grill will fill you with a warm feeling of Americana nostalgia.
