Charlton’s Menu

On May 12, a new menu was introduced by Chef Bob.  He put brought back favorites, moved some to specials, eliminated others and introduced Filthy Thighs and Dirty Legs.

Chef Bob knows change is inconvenient and can be unsettling but short-term changes were made to reduce waste and costs to keep our employees working.

What makes Charlton’s unique to our area?

Charlton’s is a true Neighborhood restaurant whose Chef and Owner are onsite everyday. He makes your food, will give you his time for conversation and if you take a minute to ask for some comfort food and if it is possible, he will work to make your request a reality but no promises.

Gotta Get Some Dirty Smoked Chicken

Gluten-free Fried Chicken Thighs and Legs (drums) are rubbed with Chef Bob’s spiced Honey rub, smoked then chilled.  When ordered, we drop the chicken in the fryer where the Honey caramelizes then we lightly toss Chef Bob’s Salt & Pepper Rub and it is the juiciest, Gluten-free fried chicken you will ever eat!

Dirty Smoked Chicken sold from 2 to 10 pieces with no sides or dressing to keep the price down.  All sides, sauces, dips, etc. are extra.

During our product market research testing, 95% of the Dirty Smoked Chicken never made it out the front door!  Try it yourself!

Menu Stories

On our Barrington Farms street we call ‘the Creek,’ everyone loves our neighbor Tommie’s Chicken Buffalo Dip and is a huge hit at all our parties.  So, when creating our original menu in 2016, we asked that her dip be part of our business and she gave us permission to use her recipe.  So we named it after her!

Emery is Tommie’s husband and whenever she made Chicken Buffalo Dip, he would put it on anything edible as a vehicle to get the ‘dip’ into  his belly!  Em passed away before we opened in 2016 and to honor him, we took his favorite bacon cheddar burger and added Tommie’s Dip.  We can see him smiling every time we make one.  Love and miss you Em!

Emma was walking by the open door to Chef Bob’s office and glancing through the door, saw a draft menu and upon seeing ‘Moldy Pig’ said, “Dad, you can’t put that on the menu!  Chef Bob calmly replied, “put what?”  Emma replied “that!  Moldy Pig?  It’s disgusting!”  Chef Bob laughed “well you made my point now come here and read it, then tell me what you think.”  After reading, Emma said “Yeah, your right.  Keep it!  That looks good.  When do I get to try it?”

Wil Charlton’s favorite toy was a little plastic cowboy named ‘Cranky Jones’ and his favorite food was a burger, no cheese.  So, his Pop-pop, Chef Charles who was famous for making up names, was trying to get Wil’s attention on the beach and yelled, “Wilburgerjones!”  The name stuck!

On Friday, July 8, 2016, our opening day, a couple walked in at 6:15 and upon being greeted, the gentleman said, “Nice menu.  Here is what I want.  A salad with lettuce tossed with Blue Cheese dressing, Blue Cheese crumbles, Cheddar Cheese, Bacon and a Medium well burger diced up on top.”  Emma looked at him and said, “we don’t have that on the menu.”  He said, “Well it should be!  The owner is a Chef, right?  So, let’s see what he can do!”  He had the same salad every Friday for 3 months and when we updated the menu, we added his salad, The Ross!

In February of 2020 while her family was eating dinner, the mother asked Chef Bob as he stopped by the table “at work, every Wednesday’s lunch special at my office cafeteria is Buffalo Chicken Salad and it is mobbed.  You got the Chicken, the great wing sauces and homemade Blue Cheese and it is Gluten-free so I can eat it.  Why don’t you have that salad on the menu?”  We added it the next day.  Thank you, Amanda!

We received a phone order for a Teen Burger, Yellow American Cheese and fries.  That was it, nothing more.  When the mother came in for the burger, I asked “only a Teen burger?”  She smiled and said, “we were ordering at the Chick-fil-a drive-thru when I asked Gabriel what he wanted and his reply was “Mom, I want my favorite burger!”  She replied, “What’s that?” Gabriel said, “Chef Bob’s Teen Burger with cheese and fries.” So, as we sat in line for our Chick-fil-a order, we called you for this burger!”  Well, it is still his favorite and we named it after Gabriel, so everyone knows.

Matt is a member of the Champions Community, the Titan’s Wheelchair sports and always had people taking his picture.  When he would leave, we would pretend that there were paparazzi outside take his picture.  You know when Matt arrives as he yells “Hey Bob!”  We are truly blessed to have Matt as a customer and now a neighbor at Champions Place!

While testing a Philly-style Cheesesteak to add to the menu.  Chef Bob added a homemade seasoned cheddar cheese sauce to this version of the Philly.  As the man was finishing his lunch, Chef stopped by to get his feedback.  He said, “I can describe this sandwich with one word.  Another.  I started with a big bite and as I ate the cheesesteak, I took smaller bites to make it last longer.  When I finished, I just felt like I needed just one more bite.  Another.”  Other customers confirmed the sediment and we haven’t changed a thing since!

Chef Bob’s original creation came to be as we ran out of pork but we had smoked Turkey breast.  The customer Paul, said he would try it and while he ate it, he used our Flying Mayo to dip and BAM!  New Cuban!  Just like it’s island cousin, a Traditional Cuban but with Smoked Turkey Breast and our Buffalo Flying Mayo then pressed.

Chef Bob usually comes to the table to meet and talk with neighbors who have a food allergy.  If there are any questions about Gluten-Friendly menu items, food allergies and the ingredients used to create and prepare our foods, walk-in any Wednesday through Sunday after 2 pm or call Chef Bob Charlton at (770) 442-9005.

So, why is this important for you to know?

Well, some reviewers (whom never set foot in our restaurant) have been critical of our food preparation, cooking process, our lack of awareness on cross-contamination potential, etc. for the purpose of steering you away from trying our restaurant.

Chef Bob is a culinary-trained Chef, his wife and neighbors are Gluten-free with one person actually allergic to Chicken.  So if you think that making your neighbors sick or dead is the best way to build a strong, repetitive Neighborhood-focused restaurant … then …
