Chicken-devouring people of northern Sydney, another Chargrill Charlie's is coming your way. As of Saturday, September 15, Frenchs Forest will be home to the eleventh incarnation of the Sydney institution. And, to celebrate, the Charlie's team is giving away free food.
Get there between midday and 1pm on opening day to score a free quarter barbecue chicken with chips, then make a return between 5pm and 6pm to tuck into a whole family size chicken, also gratis. There should be plenty of room — Charlie's is transforming a huge shop on the edge of the Forestway Shopping Centre into a huge open-plan space, with seating for 80 people inside and 20 outside. In keeping with the eatery's usual look, you can expect a modern industrial feel, with recycled timber and splashes of black metal.
As well as burgers, chicken and chips, the menu will offer all the other goodness for which Charlie's has become legendary. That includes up to 15 types of salad on any one day, chicken schnitzel, creamed potato, rolls, DIY dinner plates and desserts, including apple pie.
Chargrill Charlie's will open at 22 Forest Way, Frenchs Forest on Saturday, September 15. Details of the other nine eateries across Sydney are chargrillcharlies.com.
