Chicken-devouring people of the inner west, Chargrill Charlie's is coming your way. As of Saturday, September 16, Annandale will be home to the tenth 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 original chicken or beef burger and chips combo, then make a return between 5pm and 6pm, to tuck into a half-chicken and chips combo, also gratis. There should be plenty of room — Charlie's is transforming two shopfronts on Johnson Street into a huge open-plan space, with seating for 60 people. 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 119-121 Johnson Street, Annandale on Saturday, September 16. Details of the other nine eateries across Sydney are chargrillcharlies.com.
