On the bad review for Charlies I think the reviewer was actually at Char- Lees which was in Havertown this was by far the worst Burger I have ever had (the burgers at Maris Grove were better) it has since become a Zacs.

Charlies in Folsom great Burgers a little small though so you have to have two and the best black and white milkshake around. No Fries or Onion Rings (for those go to Jimmy Johns on 202 (yes its open again)in West Chester area) only potato Chips. Charlies is not exactly were the adress says it is if you are looking on Kedron ave you won't find it there.

I feel like a Burger today unfortunately its tuesday so I will have to choose the runner up which I think is Zacs or 5 guys.

To Karenann who said "worst meal ever had", you're an idiot.
Charlies doesn't even have fries or onion rings.

Not to mention, there is no baskets,calling out numbers, or referring to cheeseburgers as "burger with cheddar".
You clearly have no idea WTF your'e talking about, and no business at all commenting on places that you clearly have never been to.

Whoever wrote about the burned stale food at Charlies had it mixed up. Always fresh, always perfectly cooked. And just hamburgers and I think hotdogs. No fries, no onion rings. Try a burger and get a milkshake with it. Heaven. About as good as Charlies - maybe even better, is Zac's (4 or 5 locations now). Had a Zac's (in Folsom) this week and, maybe 'cause I was hungry, was one of the best burgers ever. Zac's also have fries and onion rings and milkshakes. Ummmmm. OK, Charlies is great - but Zac's is Nicer and cleaner than Charlies, and the people are more personable and friendlier. There ya go.

Pros: good fresh hand made burgers

Cons: no cons, really

I went to Charlie's for the first time today and the last time. The burger was burned. I asked for onion rings instead of frenchfries but the order came up with burned frenchfries. The girl was sweet but inexperienced. She took the basket back and at least ten minutes later had the onion rings ready. She handed me a basket of onion rings. When I told her I hadn't gotten my hamburger, she looked around for my original basket and handed it to me with the cold soggy fries still in the basket. Needless to say the hamburger was also cooled off and as I said, burned. When this young lady called out a retrieval number she would also say "cheeseburger with cheddar" for instance. Several people would go up to the counter only having heard the description and she would let them take the order without finding out what number they had. This obviously left someone else without their order. The guy making the burgers was getting on her case but no one was helping her to get it right. I should have asked for my money back and left but I was so hungry by the time the food came that I went ahead and ate it. Dumb move! It sat like a lead balloon in my stomach all day.

food is always good and fresh. Staff if pleasant and personable. Shakes are out of this world. Breakfasts are very plentiful and filling. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Charlies is the only place other than home that I eat burgers. I always have cheese burgers loaded and they are great. My 7yr old granddaughter from Bucks County thinks they are the best also. Whenever they come to visit she wants a burger from Charlies for dinner.

I have never had a better burger than Charlies. Their are grilled to perfection, and the toppings are wonderful. Charlies has been in business for awhile, and there's a reason for that. I often hear Casey Boy on the Preston & Steve radio show refer to how good Charlies is. Treat yourself. Have a great burger.

Charlie's has great old-fashioned hamburgers. The burgers are made to order.
It is a little hard to find if you don't know the area.
I do think the food was a little better at its original location.

I have been going to Charlies since before the first restaurant burned down at Baltimore Pike. I was just a toddler then. Been coming back ever since.

The burgers are kinda thin but there's just something about the combination of seasoning and fresh beef and the way they slightly toast the buns. The cheese just melts on the burger. I'm actually going there today for lunch. Can't wait!

Their prices do keep me from coming back more often, and because it's a little far from where I live now, but it's a good treat every once in a while.

White Castle couldn't hold a flame to this place. I once read someone talk trash about how they use the empty bun plastic bags for take out orders. I thought that was a great way to recycle and cut down on costs.

Final thoughts - Amazing burgers, stellar shakes - bit pricey.....worth it once in a while.

Pros: Amazing burgers!!!!!

Cons: Expensive for a burger

I've been going to Charlie's for approx 40 plus yrs and I've sat with 5 generations on the stools provided. My family has been going to Charlies since it was founded. We've taken countless friends and family over the yrs and I feel the burgers are the best I've ever eaten. I don't get there often, but when I do, I eat as many as possible with a Blk & Wht shake. They're the BEST!

Pros: Fast & Good

Cons: Not enough seating

.

I heard that Charlie's was supposed to have great hamburgers and man was I disappointed. The place is a true hamburger shack which was cool, but their burgers are as small as White Castle but cost three times as much, and White Castle burgers taste better. I would have rated them 1 star if the burgers weren't unique. But in this case, unique was bad. I would NOT recommend Charlie's burgers.

Pros: Unique building and burgers

Cons: The burgers are terrible

.

Its like they ripped this place off the boardwalk. They sell small burgers at a cheap price. . similar to white castle, but not quite so small and not at all crappy. The burgers are delicious, and I believe they are hand formed right there so you know you aren't getting some frozen patty. They go great with a milkshake.
Its worth checking out for a fast fun and tasty lunch.

When i was in high school my friends and I would go to Charlie's after soccer games. Their hamburgers are sensational. The prices for everything we very reasonable. The place is very small but service is always fast. Sorry to any of those who think you are going to get a fine dining experience because you are not. I dont understand how people think the burgers are too small when they only cost a couple of dollars, what do you expect? most people won't write reviews that are time-consuming if they don't actually like the food so due to the fact that pretty much every reasonable person wrote a good review, its safe to say it's a good place to get burgers.

I grew up in Havertown in the 70s and would be taken by my parents to Charlie's for treats, celebrations, and quick stops on the way to the airport. But it's been a long time since I'ved lived in the Delaware watershed, and am in fact now in Ireland. What I wouldn't give for a bag of cheeseburgers "loaded, for the outside!" I'll be sure to not be in Philly on a Tuesday on my next trip!

I've been going to Charlie's since I was a little girl. It's not meant to impress by being a large, fancy restaurant and for those of you who don't get that, maybe you are better off going to some chain restaurant instead. Charlie's has been successful for so long due to the fresh ingredients and fast service. The burgers aren't the biggest but they are tasty!!! You can't go wrong with a black and white shake and a Charlie's Special. I love how they still use the same plastic cups from long ago, too. Nothing's been updated and every time I go there, it brings me back to my childhood. You'd be a fool not to try this place. And if you can't appreciate the food rather than the atmosphere, then you can't call yourself and foodie and shouldn't be criticizing any restaurant on this site until you understand what makes good food just that.

I do NOT understand why everyone loves Charlie's so much. Maybe it's just one of those things where one person says it's a great place, then another person agrees and it's just something that becomes accepted by everyone just because "someone" said it was the greatest place ever. I've seen this happen with other restaurants, movies, etc.
Let me just tell you about my experience. My boyfriend and I walked in and thought it was a joke how small and weird the place was. We felt like everyone was staring at us. It really was a shack. It was our first time there and we didn't know what they had, and what was good to order, so we ordered four cheeseburgers and a milkshake to go (because we felt really awkward sitting in there).
So when we got home to eat them, they were smaller than a McDonald's hamburger!!! It was so ridiculous. I was not full. They were not worth our money. Nifty Fifties is much better and I would venture across the street to go there rather than Charlies again. Oh, and Nifty Fifties milkshakes are a MILLION times better.
I don't really know what else to say except that people need to stop following the crowd and saying they love it just because everyone else does, when really, you know deep down, that place is not all it's cracked up to be.

My parents went to Charlie's before I was born, then as an incentive for me when I got my toncils out they told me as soon as I got better we could go to Charlie's! As I dated my soon to be husband and we went to Charlie's several times a week. We were asked to come in our wedding clothes on our wedding day, we did go, but we changed first. The guys there gave us a cheeseburger candle! My kids love Charlie's! That's three generations and over 50 years of Charlie's fanatics! They must be doing something right!

Without fail, everytime we visit Philly I cajole my husband who is a Springfield native to take me to Charlies. I long for a cheeseburger loaded accompanied by a black and white. The first time my husband took me to this haven of burgers in 1983, I could not believe how tasty the burgers were. I was smitten with the tradition surrounding this humbling cheesebuger shack. On that initial visit I reordered two times for a total of five burgers. In my opinion there is no other burger/shake joint in the US like Charlies - unless you happen to find yourself on Long Beach Island, NJ at The Holiday Snack Bar (a close 2nd) ordering cheesburgers w/special relish, shake, and a mega size slice of homemade cake. Hmmm, honey lets throw caution to the wind and hop on that $89 flight to Philly . . . . .

$12 bucks for 3 of the thinnest burgers ever and 2 decent-ish milkshakes?
Any diner can make a similar meal. Sorry - I was not that impressed - they must have a cult following that has never buttered & toasted their own hamburger bun before.

I have had thicker grilled cheese sandwiches....and what's up with getting a burger to go wrapped in a used plastic bag?

Charlies makes, by far, the best tasting burgers I've ever had. You can stop by this joint just about anytime of day, and there's always a line. Although it may not look like much form the outside, their chesseburgers are absolutely incredible. If you live in Delaware County, you absolutely have to try these hamburgers. I guarantee, you will be hooked. They also have great milk shakes you need to be sure to try if you stop in here. Great Great Great!!!

PROS: Mouthwatering, delcisous, addictive
CONS: Closed Tuesdays :(

While the Burgers and milkshakes are to die for, parking is a hassle and they aren't lying when they say burger "shack" The place looks like it's falling apart. I recommend grabbing a couple cheeseburgers and a black and white to go!

HUH???? of course, husband is not from around here. I pretty much went there everyday thru my pregnancy....the baby WANTED 2-3 charles burgers.....
If you've never been there...you don't know what you are missing...I'm not much of a shake person, but i've heard they are the BEST!!!!!!!!!

When I want a great Burger and I'm back in my old neighborhood I head to Charlies. I too have been a customer for close to 40 years. When I was a kid we would stop by the old place in Springfield after shopping at Korvettes or Kleins for some cheeseburgers and Black and Whites. Wow those shakes were the best and they still are! The burgers still taste the same and have the same quality. Memories of walking out of the joint with a empty hamburger bun bag fill of hot and juicy cheeseburgers and some frosty milkshakes are special.

It was a treat when my Dad brought home Charlie's hamburgers wrapped in their little wax paper bags, usually on a Friday night after he finished his second shift at Boeing in Morton. I'm now living in Bucks County, but my husband is also a Charlie's fan. We drive down once or twice a summer. Nobody mentioned it, but is Charlie's still closed from the last weekend in October to the last weekend in April?
Oh yes, I remember skipping class to go to Scotty's in Springfield too, but Charlie's is better.
Does anyone know if Jimmy John's is still there out on Route 1? Check out the pictures in Charlie's of Jimmy John and Charlie and their wives.
Anyway, you don't need fries and onion rings - Charlie's is like the "Cheeburger, Cheeburger" place from Saturday Night Live. They know what they do best, and they stick to it.

Anyway, you don't need fries and onion rings - Charlie's is like the "Cheeburger, Cheeburger" place from Saturday Night Live. They know what they do best, and they stick to it.

Pros: hamburgers, service, shakes

.

Back in the 1960s, a friend took me to Charlie's and I fell in love with the place. It has moved from its off Baltimore Pike location to one now off McDade Blvd. but the murger expereince is the same. I get cheese with everything. I go oncea month for a fix and order 3 with a black and white shake. Zacs in Crume Lynne gives them a run but Charlies is a bit larger, the cooks older and order takers more professional. In Charlies the is an atmosphere unlike any burger jont I have expereinced.

I don't know about the rest of these people that have reviewed this hamburger joint, but I like fries with my burgers. If you are like me, you will be very disappointed. All they've got on their menu are hot dogs, hamburgers, milk shakes and mini bags of potatoe chips. No onion rings, fries, or anything else of the like. Ordering and paying for your food is very chaotic. It definitely was a great burger, especially the gooey cheese they use to top it. It's worth a trip if you live nearby. Don't drive far to get it. White Rose in Roselle, NJ is by far worth the hour hike from PA.

I FIRST STARTED GETTING MY BURGER FIX SATISFIED AT CHARLIES WHEN IT WAS IN SPRINGFIELD IN THE EARLY 50'S. THROUGH THE YEARS THEY HAVE REMAINED CONSISTANTLY A GREAT BURGER. HAND FORMED AND COOKED JUST RIGHT. BRING BACK THOSE DAYS OF BURGER AND SHAKE EATING CONTESTS AT CHARLIES. WHO NEEDED DRUGS, YOU GOT HIGH ON THE TASTE.

Fridays were for the guys, in our family it was Fish or you fended for yourself. My Dad would wink and we were off to Charlies for one of the best hamburgers ever to crest the Golden Mile. Anyone from Springfield in the late 50's inthru the 60's knew of a place called Scotties up on Sproul road. A .25 cent hamburger and fries, with a shake and off to the drags. But If you wanted the best in town,... we would Zoom down to Charlies. Hands down the best. I still remember Whitie and that smile.
Today I still go and step back thru time, with memories of my dad with each and every bite.

Pros: Friendly, Old Fashion, Down to earth people

Cons: Seating, Not for large groups

I was introduced to Charlie's by my dad, who used to go there when he was a kid. Now we go out of our way on car trips to make a stop there and get a Bunny (burger with the works). The staff is friendly and courteous, the food is simple but excellent, and the shakes are out of this world. The entire experience is totally authentic -- just don't expect the Ritz! But definitely skip the nearby Nifty Fifty's and go for Charlie's if you want the best burger of your life.
