Nice little barbecue restaurant in Roseburg. Well thought out menu and good smoke flavor. They were out of turkey which was disappointing but the chicken was tasty. Sandwiches, plates and more. Lot's of options and sides.

Small and comfortable place to eat. A number of booths and tables. Plenty of sauces to satisfy anyone's taste. We ordered a rack of BB Ribs with corn fritters and hush puppies. Great ribs and fritters. Hush puppies were not done and they cooked up a new batch but they were over done. Guess you just need to be from... More

Folks, this is hands down the best BBQ in the Pacific Northwest. I had the Brisket Sandwich. It came on a hoagie roll. Charlie's offers several kinds of BBQ sauce which you get to add to your meat. I chose the "up a notch" sauce which has a bit of spice to it. It complimented the beef brisket very well.... More

First off, the service was good and the place was clean. It appears to be a family run restaurant and all that were working were friendly and seemed to know most of the customers. The only issue I had with the food was that the brisket was dry and the baked beans were canned which isn't a bad thing if... More

We had a very nice BBQ diner here on our recent trip through Roseburg, OR. Having lived in Texas where they have great BBQ our expectations were not very high. However this place had great BBQ with very large portions at a good doller value. The owner waited on us and was very pleasant and helpful. If I lived here... More

Traveling to Northern Oregon from CA. Stopped for gas and attendant recommended Charlie's. The brisket was PERFECT. Pulled Pork was perfect too!Sides plentiful and good! Service was excellent and friendly. We had just returned from TX and had BBQ that was not near as good. Many flavored BBQ sauces to choose from!

My boyfriend and I showed up at 5:30 tonight, a Friday night. We sat down, and within a minute an employee comes over, hands us menus and tells us they are out of pork, and two other meats which was about 1/2 the menu. They had plates costing $14-18. The guy brings out water for us, in small 12 ounce... More

We went here on a vacation roadtrip going north. Since I've had BBQ down in Memphis I did not have too high expectations... But we got a positive surprise - food was great, and we felt very welcomed. The staff and owner were very friendly, and we felt like regulars... Had a chat about our trip plans and got recommendations... More

Nicely smoked meats. Fair prices. Really good fries. Several good sauces to garnish your food with. Easy and quick meal while traveling on I-5.
