Friendly crew at Charcoal Delights in Chicago and Des Plaines

Thank you for dining at Charcoal Delights — our most important objective is pleasing you, our guest. We are constantly striving to serve you the highest quality, freshest products in a minimal amount of time.

For over 20 years, Charcoal Delights has been proud to use the most irresistable old fashioned cooking process in the world, charcoal "barbecue" broiled. And if you've never tasted a sandwich cooked with this ultimate cooking process, you're in for a unique taste sensation.

It might be difficult deciding just what to order, with all the choices we offer you. Maybe you'll have our thick, delicious 100% pure domestic beef burgers or one of our plump all beef Vienna hot dogs or a Maxwell Street Polish with all the trimmings.

Then again, you might enjoy our famous broasted chicken, golden brown on the outside, moist and tender inside. Try our charcoal broiled steaks, barbeque ribs with our famous sauce or our homemade beef and sausage. Our fresh, crisp salads, homemade soups and chili, and hot steaming baked potatoes are sure to delight you.
