The Story

The Chicken Charlie family has been frying foods and filling bellies since 1996! It all began when two brothers envisioned an empire of fried food and began making it a reality, starting with a small trailer traveling from fair to fair selling fried chicken. With a big dream of turning ordinary food into extraordinary mouth-watering fair favorites! Here at Chicken Charlie’s, we have continued to bring smiles to people’s faces and flavor-melting foods throughout Southern California at County Fairs and our locally-owned restaurants in San Diego!
