Over the opening weekend between Saturday, November 28 and Sunday, November 29, customers won’t have to spend big to get their chicken fix in Coogee. 

The menu will include Chargrill Charlie’s famous extra large seasoned chicken ($10.90), half seasoned chicken ($5.90), quarter season chicken ($3.90) and packs including a half chicken and chips ($9.90) a quarter chicken and chips ($5.90). 

‘I still remember the day my parents opened the doors to our first shop all those years ago, so it feels really special to open our new store in Coogee – it’s like we are coming home,’ Ryan Sher, Chargrill Charlie’s co-owner, said.

‘We really wanted to tap into all those magical memories to launch the store, and celebrate the era that helped build Chargrill Charlie’s into what it is today.’

Dialling up the 80s vibes further, the store will also have its own DJ, mixing the best classic tunes from the decade, and will be giving away a host of retro-inspired merchandise, including fluro-printed tees, water bottles and caps.

The new store is located on the bustling Coogee Bay Road, only a short stroll from the beach – making it the perfect spot for a bite after a hot summer’s day. 

The space is fitted out in Chargrill Charlie’s trademark modern industrial decor – with a colour palette of burnt reds, yellows and oranges. 

At full capacity the store will be able to seat over 45 diners with banquet style booths – but this has currently been reduced in line with covid safety restrictions.

In a first for Chargrill Charlie’s, the new store will also introduce ‘The Salad Cube’ – a cubed transparent window allowing diners to watch staff prepare daily fresh salads in a bespoke kitchen, lined with fresh produce from local farmers and markets.

Coogee will offer all of the chain’s signature dishes including its hero chargrilled chicken, chicken schnitzels, seasonal salads, DIY dinner plates, crunchy hot chips, wedges, rolls and burgers as well as classic desserts like their homemade apple pie.
