Charlie’s Grill & Grind Kapitolyo (Pasig)

This particular branch located in Kapitolyo, Pasig allows customers to sink their teeth into their mighty meaty burgers and munch on their tasty fries all while having their car washed or waxed.

Add a belly full of freshly grilled meat, beer, and truffle fries to a squeaky clean car and you’ve got yourself an extremely happy Daddy. The car wash rates are a bit on the pricey side but if you’re having lunch or merienda while having Dad’s ride cleaned then the quality of the food more than makes up for it.

Let Dad try their black truffle fries that’s served with liver bits, best with imported beers that they sell too.
