So I had my 4th ponyshoe in a week! The fries were on top here, which I have decided I prefer, they were also... More

Have been at Charlie Parker's several times. Always good food, generous servings and good service. Popular restaurant for breakfast and lunch. (Not open for dinner.) Unique, aircraft-hanger type building. An American Diner inside decor.
