Black Angus Burger with Fries (Php 175.00)


Wowie and I were really excited to try this place out, especially after hearing that they served delicious burgers, hotdogs, and creamy milkshakes. I have read lots, and I mean lots of good reviews about this joint, saying that Charlie's Grind and Grill had juicy and extremely scrumptious burgers... therefore raising my expectations.


I also learned that their executive chef was Rob Goco (of Cyma fame) so we were both looking forward to adding this place to our list of faves.

Since it was our first time here, we decided to order the basics... their Black Angus with Fries (Php 175.00), a Single Bacon Wrapped Snap Dawg (Php 160.00), and their Strawberry Milkshake (Php 150.00).

Sadly, we were extremely dissapointed with the food we ordered. In one word, I would have to say that their fare is OVERRATED. In my opinion, Wham's burgers and food are far better, juicier, and definitely way more delicious than theirs.

Personally, I even find Jollibee and McDonald's burgers better than what I had here. The black angus burger was terribly dry and bland. The burger bun was also dry and crumbly. The Snap Dawg didn't really have the "snap" I was looking for when you bite into a good hotdog. As for their strawberry milkshake... nah... wasn't a fan of it either... the whipped cream topping was served mushy... flavor... lacks it.

I honestly do not know if we're the only ones who didn't enjoy our meal at Charlie's, but I definitely don't see myself coming back, unless it's someone else's treat or if I don't have a choice. Sorry.

MY VERDICT

What I Didn't Like:
> Food - Wasn't a fan everything we ordered
> Quality - The bread and buns were dry. Whipped cream on the milkshake was mushy, and the shake itself wasn't as yummy as everyone claims it to be

Will I Go Back?:
> Never

Will I Recommend This Place?:
> Nope
