Charlie's is, in my opinion, one of the best Chinese restaurants in the Chapel Hill area. Don't let the name fool you, this is no hole-in-the-wall. Charlie himself will often be there to greet you as you walk in the door, and the rest of the staff is just as nice and attentive. The food is always amazing - the vegetables fresh, the meats of high quality. Many Chinese restaurants cover up low-quality meat and produce with thick, sweet sauces. Charlie's sauces are never too heavy, and always allow the flavor of the fresh ingredients to shine through. The veggies are fresh and crisp - not overcooked. The meat is tender, not slimy. And best of all are the prices! Everything is very reasonably priced, especially considering the quality. My personal favorites include the vegetarian Hot and Sour soup, and the Mongolian Beef.
