I've tried most of the things on the menu here, and it's all good, but I'm particularly fond of the steak gyro and the traditional gyro. Some of the best I've had on this side of the Atlantic! Our kids love the steak on a stick, though the younger, less adventurous ones like the chicken nuggets. The atmosphere is relaxed... More

I work at home and go often at lunch for the special of the day - gyro, fries and a drink for $6.99. Another go-to is the awesome Mediterranean salad.

I regularly stop by Charlie's in Heritage for lunch. My favorite is their Phoenix gyro ( chicken). They're quick, the food is tasty, and very consistent in nature. They have lots of vegetarian options for the Veggies out there. Parking can be somewhat limited depending on what time you go ( lunch weekdays/weekends), but is not generally an issue.

Love the gyros and kabob platters. Two locations offer convenient stops for weeknight dinners. Baklava are great too.

They do gyros right and at a fair price. Spice up your taziki sauce for some nice heat. Also they have a food truck that goes out in various communities.

Recommended by a local and went for lunch, had their shawarma special. It was incredibly tasty, and came with fries and a drink for an extremely fair price. It's an open air kitchen that you order at the window and pay, and then they bring your food out to your table. You get your own drinks, napkins, etc. The restaurant... More

Charlie's is THE go-to place for my wife and me when we go to Wake Forest. The Mediterranean food is fresh, flavorful, and, in a word, fantastic! I never get anything but the "Charlie's special" (a Greek salad, Lebanese rice, and lamb gyro meat with delicious taziki sauce). My wife likes the kabobs or the gyros. The service is also... More

So, we've lived in the area for about 8 months and had seen the signs and the outside but hadn't ever ventured in and we recently got a coupon in the mail for a free meal with the purchase of another meal and two drinks and we thought 'why not'. Well, it was so good, that we came back the... More
