No Charcoal Chef for me! Yikes! My mother and I stopped in yesterday (Mother??s Day 2009) for a quick bite. There were no tables on this busy day and they asked us if we would take a seat on a bench on the right since there would be a small wait.

Ok, the food is cooked in the font of the establishment and the cooks put the entrees and sides on a prep table to be placed on trays to be taken to the table. Here??s where it gets bad, Effie, the owner was taking the entrees and sides and putting them on the tray to be taken to the table. How was she doing this? She was eating with her right hand, licking her fingers. I saw here pick up three (3) entrees and took the same right hand and picked up the entre food with the same hand and rearrange it on the plate while then continuing to eat licking her fingers.

I turned to my mom and asked if she just saw want I did and she said yes. We left. The owner doing this? Yikes, imagine what else goes on there!

Pros: Didn't Give it a Chance

Cons: Poor Management

As its name implies, Charcoal Chef specializes in "meat and potatoes" meals. It has recently been taken over by new management. The meals are well prepared - most meats are char-broiled. They also have a fine selection of salads, burgers and sandwiches. I have a hard time not ordering the pork chops when I go there. Very comfortable atmosphere.

We had stopped going to Charcoal Chef a few years ago, due to decreasing quality. Effie took over the place, remodeled, and brought the food back up to par. Good meal at a very reasonable price. This is on our list of regular "go-to" restaurants.

When I visited Charcoal Chef last week, I was very pleased with both the service and the food. I ordered there famous dream burger which was made on a charcoal grill and the Charcoal Chef salad. Both of these were delicious. I would highly recommend visiting this restaurant.
