Charlie Joseph's in LaGrange

It’s the kind of place you’d expect to see featured on the Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. Charlie Joseph’s in LaGrange is as classic as the food it’s been serving in the area since 1920!

Charlie Joseph’s

For some, Charlie Joseph’s in LaGrange is basically a synonym for “world’s best hot dog.” For others, it’s more about the burger. And for everyone, it’s about the at-home atmosphere.

From the retro red, black and white exterior to the in-store décor, it feels like you are sitting in an old-time soda shop.

While the quality, made-to-order fresh food is a staple, so are the people. For more than 100 years, this local, family-owned business has been about community.

Today it remains a place you can go and sit at the counter. There, you can chat with locals and the friendly staff as you wait on your order.

Before you know it, it’s time to dig into food full of flavor. Hot dogs, burgers, sandwiches and more are all on the menu. Plus, guests are treated to weekly and daily specials.

Order your hot dog topped with ketchup, mustard, onions, relish, slaw and chili. Of course, you can have it any way you want it, but that’s the ultimate choice.

The versatile burger can be ordered plain with just two simple patties and melted cheese or topped with a variety of options.
