Promising lunch at Charchaels

Knowing of my penchant for all things wings and dogs, a couple of friends independently mentioned Charchaels in Thornwood as must-try. I stopped n today for a quick bite between kid drop offs/pick ups and was not disappointed. It's just down the road from Khan's Grocery.

The restaurant is a small storefront with 5-6 tables with the chef/owners doing the cooking. I ordered a dog ($1.95, includes 3 toppings) and a sampler of six wings ($3.99). The cashier asked me if I wanted my dog boiled or split and grilled, a good sign. Ten minutes later I was digging into a beautifully grilled hot dog, covered with freshly sauteed onions. The dog was served in a wonderfully fresh, split and lightly grilled bun. The wings, ordered hot, were big, meaty and crispy. The spiciness level was just right, on the hotter side of :"hot", served with blue cheese dressing and fresh celery.

I'll be back next weekend with family in tow to explore more of the menu: cheesesteak, all sorts of french fries and burgers. I'm reserving judgement until that meal but for quality at these prices, Charchaels' should have people lined up outside their door.
