Bethany Beach, DE: Charlie K’s

A trip to Bethany Beach usually means a few things, Fisher’s Popcorn, Thrasher’s Fries, Kohr Bros Ice Cream and the occasional roadside dive. Every time we head down to the beach we pass by Charlie K’s BBQ and comment on how cute it looks. On this particular trip, my friend and I were both craving BBQ and decided to try Charlie K’s.

Charlie K’s is a BBQ stand on the side of the road and when we went it was around 2pm and fortunately there wasn’t a long line like we have seen some other days.

The menu is very basic with only a few options but that’s fine because everything they offer, they do well. My friend ordered the Smoked Turkey Sandwich and it was topped with BBQ sauce. The turkey was moist and sliced thin and paired well with the smoky, tangy BBQ sauce.

We then shared a side of Mac and Cheese and it was delicious. The pasta was nice and tender and the dish was cheesy. We inhaled it in under 30 seconds and regretted not ordering a larger portion. On my next visit, I will without a doubt order this again.

For my meal, I ordered the BBQ joints namesake, the “Charlie K.” This sandwich was brisket, cole slaw, onion and BBQ sauce on a kaiser roll. It was messy, but delicious. While we were enjoying the delicious food, Charlie K himself came outside to make sure we were enjoying our meal which was very sweet.

  1. The only problem with Charlie’s is that he told me he doesn’t smoke the meat because the smoke gives him indigestion. It’s not true bbq unless it’s smoked. His sauce was very good though.
