“Not #1 cheesesteak but ok for Alabama”

Charley's Grilled Subs
Ranked #449 of 1,039 Restaurants in Birmingham
Restaurant details
Reviewed 15 December 2017

OK, all in all this is a good cheesesteak, fresh bread, good quality meat. Charley's needs to be sure to stick to standards, the tomatoes were mush and took away from the overall experience. They need to be sliced closer to service and not piled up in the pan on the cold table. The fries were hot and nicely seasoned but I would prefer that they not give the fries until the cheesesteak is ready.

The staff was friendly at the counter. I was a little surprised that the cook preparing the cheesesteaks had his trousers hanging down a bit to show all his underwear from the rear. Don't think this look should be what patrons see as they watch their lunch prepared.

After living in South Jersey I am pretty prejudiced when it comes to cheesesteaks, this one wouldn't hold up long in South Jersey or in the Philadelphia area but for a fast food operation in the food court it is pretty good.

A review of their health inspection showed a score of 97 which shows that they are doing well to help reduce the risk of food borne illness.

Friendly staff, decent service, a great cheesesteak and good French fries equal a busy restaurant. Located in the food court of the Riverchase Galleria. There are always lines but they move the line very fast considering they are cooking your order to order. There is always a person handing out samples as you wait in line.

A good cheesesteak, like I remember from living in South Jersey. Greasy and yummy good. Although I would prefer fresh French fries the ones they serve are good and always served hot. Although they should work on the timing so your fries aren't done too early before you receive you cheesesteak.

A score of 98 was noted on their Health Inspection shows they are doing a good job in reducing the potential of foodborne illness.

The regular size is a generous portion and very filling. We recommend Charley's for lunch if you are at the Galleria. Be sure to complete a review from your receipt and receive free frys and drink on your next visit
