Ordered over $100 of food for takeout on a Tuesday evening. Food took about 15 minutes longer than the time promised, but the order was correct. Food was fair...

Charlie K's does an awesome job catering to private parties. Can't say enough about their pulled pork and puled brisket and pulled chicken BBQ sandwiches. Great flavor without the overwhelming smokiness that some BBQ places serve. And their coleslaw is awesome as well. Don't forget their baked beans - which are special as well. Great people as well.

I have only eaten here once but I will definitely go back! I had the sliced turkey sandwich. Perfectly seasoned and smoked! They didn't drown it in BBQ sauce either. The rest of my family had the ribs, brisket and pulled pork. Everybody was happily satisfied! definitely check it out if you haven't!

We stopped in just around closing time, but the folks could not have been nicer. While they were out of much of their menu, we really couldn't complain as the open sign was out when we got there. None the less the pit beef was great, as were the sides, Green Beans, Cole Slaw and Baked Beans. The horseradish was... More

Typically CK's is pretty busy during the summer. Been here maybe ten times. The food is good for a quick meal. As others have mentioned, sometimes the pulled pork can come off a little fatty so when you order a couple of pounds, keep that in mind. Cornbread we find to be pretty good. Green beans as well. Other sides... More

We were hoping this little place could do ribs and chicken good but we were disappointed. Ribs were too salty and scrapped off the rub/sauce which was not appealing to any of us. Chicken was ok but a bit dry. Better the next day as left overs. Cold slaw was spicy and soggy. Corn bread average. Guess it's hard to... More

We stopped at Charlie K's BBQ and picked up two pounds of pulled pork to take back to the condo, along with fresh ears of corn from the vegetable stand next door. The pulled pork was almost inedible. It was way too salty. There were six of us and everyone had the same opinion. It could have been a one... More
