Charles' Country Pan Fried Chicken
Posted by DC on 12/09/2014
Charles soul food was always a good bargain.But recently I returned after some time & noticed some changes. 1st the price of the buffet went up from around $10 to $15. Secondly, they changed it to where you no longer serve yourself. Instead, you now have the food behind a counter & some preteen decides how much food u can have, even though you paid for the buffet. The young girl gave me a spoonful of mac& cheese & said "next". I haven't eaten a spoonful of mac & cheese since I was in diapers. I will not return & pay $15 for a "Jenny Craig" portioned diet plate special. The fried chicken was still good though.

The food was not bad, but they put to much SALT in the food..

Went last week w/ a friend from out of town. The chicken was excellent--moist, flavorful, excellent crispy crust--and the sides were very good. Ribs might have been a tad overdone, but still flavorful. The young lady behind the counter really could not have been more friendly or helpful and I figured she'd take us for tourists (I live in Harlem) but she was just genuinely nice and helpful--heading back this week to do take out for a birthday.

The chicken is not crisp, the greens were not delicious, and most everything else was over sugared. With the exception of the black eyed peas which were a little tough. The sweet potatoes tasted canned.

Bad attitude spot. Tasteless, not juicy chicken. fake corn bread. don't go out of your way.

I haven't been to Charles in over five years. The other day while riding by I noticed that Charles still had a uptown restaurant open. I immediately did a u turn to investigate. I was happy too see that the food still looked so good. I ordered my favorite meal which was the fried chicken, yams, with mac n cheese. Let us not forget a large lemonade. My portions were huge, the price was cheap and the service was excellent. I'm so glad that I have re discovered Charles again and I will definitely be back. Oh for those of you who are new to the area you must give his food a try. Also if Charles is still doing breakfast you must try his breakfast meals as well.

I have tried every so called soul food place in Harlem and Charles Panfried is still the BEST. I ordered the southern fried chicken with mac n cheese and yams. The food was still delicious after all these years. The servings are large and the price for a dinner is still cheap. I haven't been to Charles in about 5 years and I was driving by and I just had to stop after I realized they were open. So for some decent soul food you must visit Charles and the staff is wonderful. The homemade iced tea and lemonade is also a must.
