Char-Grill: The Ultimate Hamburger

Where: Char-Grill, Raleigh, NC

GF Menu: No.

What I ate: 1/2 lb. Hamburger Steak with cheese, lettuce, tomato, and catsup + French Fries.

How to order it: Char-grill is now offering a “Low Carb” option with their burgers. You can order a hamburger without the bun and it will come on a bed of lettuce (if you ask for it). As a Low Carb/Atkins option, this meal would not normally come with the potatoes. Therefore, you do have to ask for, and pay extra for, the french fries. Just write “No Bun” next to your burger order and check “yes” next to the fries.

What it looks like: Char-Grill Burger

I grew up eating these burgers and fries, so I was delighted to discover there is a way I can still enjoy that great, flame-broiled taste. Since I first published this post, Char-Grill GM, Robert Donaldson, informed me that the french fries at Char-Grill are not dusted with a wheat flour. They are, however, cooked in the same fryer as their apple pies. This may be a consideration for those with more severe gluten allergies.

Green Note: The low-carb option comes in a recyclable clamshell container, which you can take home and re-use or recycle. I don’t believe they offer recycling on-site yet. Now if we could only encourage Char-Grill to use fewer styrofoam cups….
