How I wish Charlie's would open somewhere closer to my home in order for me to frequent this with Paul.
Guess Charlie's heard my prayers as they opened a new branch along Ortigas Avenue just a stone's throw away from our home. Yay!
One weeknight with no dinner prepared at home, we decided to take a short drive to Charlie's second branch to satisfy Paul's burger and my buffalo wings cravings.
Parking at the basement of Ronac Art Center is limited. So it's best to go early especially during dinner time. Initially, we thought this particular Charlie's branch might not draw in a big crowd given that it's a couple of blocks away from the Greenhills Shopping Center and is pretty out of the way compared to the other commercial establishments along Ortigas Avenue. Boy, were we in for a big surprise to see Charlie's Grill and Grind filled hungry customers and there's even group of people already waiting outside. Note that this was a weeknight!
Similar to their Pasig branch, we had to place our order first before heading to our table. Paul knew exactly what to get while I dilly-dallied in front of the menu board still clueless on what to have for dinner. Finally, I headed up to the counter and ordered the following:
We had a very filling meal but agreed to save some space for a cup of yogurt from Yoggle next door. We're glad to have Charlie's Grill and Grind in the neighborhood. Now, there's more places to visit whenever a burger or buffalo wings craving arise.
Charlie's Grill and Grind is located at the Ground Floor of the Ronac Art Center along Ortigas Avenue, San Juan City. They also have a branch along East Capitol Drive, Brgy. Kapitolyo, Pasig City. For advance orders you may call them at 0923-4964747.
