10 Eliot St. Cambridge; (617) 492-9646
Charlie’s Kitchen is one of those places that seems completely wrong for its surroundings; it’s the opposite of almost every other restaurant in Harvard Square. Nestled among chic boutiques, across from the Charles Hotel, Charlie’s is strictly a townie joint, where the long bar with sports blaring on the TV takes at least equal prominence with the dining booths. But don’t be put off by its appearance; the guys are friendly and the waitress will call you hon.
The menu sticks to basics, with food that sticks to your ribs. Just about everything on the menu, from chicken to beef to pork chops, is in the $5 to $7 price range. Burgers, of course, are a mainstay here; the patties are the pre-formed kind, but they’re cooked on a flame grill. Add a bottle of Sam Adams and you can’t go wrong.
Another good thing to know is that you can eat here late. Well, late is a relative term; until midnight, anyway. It’s strictly greasy spoon, but clean; and sometimes, after pushing your way through the crowds that have inexplicably gathered around some streetcomer mime, a joint like Charlie’s can be just the sort of antidote you need in Le Square. Open daily.
