“Those of you who went to college at N.C. State University might remember the favorite hamburger joint, Char-Grill, just across from campus where you could get a steak burger too big to hold in your hands and a milk shake reminiscent of childhood. David and Cindy Turner are counting on Char-Grill’s loyal following, as well as the 1950s drive-up restaurant theme, to help boost business here,” wrote former staff writer Tracee Ormsbee in 1995.
Ormsbee went on to describe the menu, which had seven main-course selections and a “prize fare” of the Hamburger Steak Sandwich, “a 1/2-pound burger cooked to order and topped with your choice of mayonnaise, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle and cheese.”
Cubbie’s owner Scott Sawyer bought the restaurant in 2006. At that time, it was about 12 years old, he told food writer Liz Biro. He also told Biro that he has sold the business to someone planning a pizza shop.
