“Healthy Asian street food”
Reviewed 22 April 2013

Charlie Hong Kong opened in 1998 at was once the Great American Weiner Works. I miss the hot dogs, but Charlie's has good, healthy (mostly vegan) Asian street food with a local twist. Their rice bowls are a great bargain, and the food is fast and fresh. It's mainly a takeout place, but there is some indoor seating, plus picnic tables outside, under the big green awning. And they are open late (11PM), so you can get some dinner after the movie or show at the Rio Theatre up the street.

“Favorite take out”
Reviewed 5 April 2013

This is my go to place for healthy, fast and delicious take out (or eat in too). I love their green curry noodles and my kids love the Little Dan. We have been coming here for years and just love it.

“Modest Noodles.”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

This is a convenient Asian style noodle house near the Rio theater. Charlie tries to be healthy and inexpensive and is good for a modest meal, I personally would rather go to a Pho noodle house however none to be had in Santa Cruz. .
