Last night took my teenage boys and husband out for barbecue. Chuckwagon’s Charlie’s did not disappoint. The beef brisket and pulled pork were top notch. We loved the coleslaw and homefry potatoes too. Highly recommend this hidden gem.

They do very good BBQ - brisket, pull pork, chicken, etc. However, the inside decor is dated. The outside area is essentially a large sidewalk between the restaurant and the parking lot. We might use for carry out in the future, but not sit down.

Was looking forward to introducing American BBQ to a foreign guest on a weekend afternoon. Great service but brisket was dry and plain, pork shoulder was just plain dry. Beans tasted like the fire pit, over smoked. Will NOT return, an overall poor experience.

The moment you walk in you are engulfed in the aroma of smoked meats. You also arrive in a Minnesota version of a western grub house. The furnishings are chuckwagon style and the bar with two televisions broadcasting sports or news makes it complete. If...More
