When you think of Florida you think of sun and fun, surf and turf, Disneyland, the Space Shuttle and beautiful sandy beaches. You think of tropical drinks beachside and relaxing under your beach umbrella while lulled by the sounds of the waves reaching the shore. We will bet that the one thing you don’t think of is that this is the land of BBQ. Well, that’s because it isn’t, unless of course you’re on the Space Coast because, my friends, if you are near Melbourne, Florida or Eau Gallie, Florida, you should start thinking BBQ.

Ah the Space Coast. The land of NASA and lunches and all of the cool things you can do related to space. Whether you do the tours with a set itinerary or you look at the tour brochures and make up your own list of attractions and activities, eventually you are going to get hungry. Everyone knows that If you have a great day on your trip and top it off with a lousy lunch or dinner it can, pardon the expression, leave a bad taste in your mouth.
We’ll let us introduce ourselves. We are Charlie and Jake’s and we have a restaurant in the Eau Gallie, Florida area (just right over the bridge beachside) that we think will ensure that you will end each day with a full stomach of the best BBQ the Melbourne, Florida area has to offer. Not only is it great food, but our BBQ can be enjoyed dining in or carrying out. We even have a drive thru window so you don’t have to change out of your beachwear. Just drive thru and head straight back to the beachfront with your delicious, mouthwatering BBQ sandwiches. [Read more…] about Looking for a Good Restaurant on the Space Coast?
If you like to BBQ one of the best things about Melbourne, Florida is that you can BBQ nearly the whole year ‘round. The weather is perfect and even if it’s cold, it’s only cold by Florida standards, not by anyone’s up north. You can still BBQ. And nothing beats a BBQ if you’re in a beachside community like this. Something about the ocean air and the beautiful weather makes it just the perfect environment for a relaxing day eating great food.
When you walk out of the sea air and into Charlie and Jake’s restaurant you will instantly be hit with the smells coming from our kitchen. When you smoke meat for hours the delicious smell permeates the air. You can’t even smell the saltwater over the tangy BBQ scent floating in from the kitchen. Not to mention the scrumptious aromas emanating from the plates of our customers. [Read more…] about Beachside BBQs Are the Best!
If you have to ask, we can simply recommend that you stop by soon and find out for yourself. Some foods are so delicious that words just can’t do them justice. But we’ll try. First off, you have to understand about smoked meats. Here at Charlie and Jake’s we slow smoke our meats for hours. Doing this smokes the BBQ flavor deep into our smoked meats so every bite explodes with flavor. And if you like your meat so tender it almost melts in your mouth, well, you come on down and taste it for yourself.
The word “meats” can be misleading for some. When we say meats, we include poultry and yes, our poultry is smoked as well. We will serve you BBQ smoked turkey and BBQ smoked chicken that are out of this world. We stand by our meats and poultry. We believe that once you taste our BBQ you will come back again and again. Sure, if you travel to Texas you may find something you like, but in Eau Gallie, Florida there isn’t a beachside BBQ to compare with ours. We know you’ll love our restaurant and will tell your friends. [Read more…] about What’s So Special about Smoked BBQ?
If you’re having a gathering, you need food. You could make it yourself, but that leaves you less time to spend with your guests. Maybe this time you should try catering your event. We would humbly suggest that we can give you one of the best catering deals in Eau Gallie, Florida and Melbourne, Florida. Whether your gathering is for 20 to 2,000 people, Charlie and Jake’s BBQ restaurant has a catering service available. We have extensive experience catering family gatherings, fundraisers, weddings, birthday parties and corporate events. We can just about guarantee your gathering will be talked about for a long time.
So, what makes our catering service so different? Well, for one thing, we serve a BBQ. Most of the time when you cater, every restaurant has a similar type of food. Sure, each one prepares it differently, with their own flavorings, but the selection is essentially the same. We offer a unique food selection you won’t find anywhere else on the Space Coast. And yes, in the interests of full transparency, we will now attempt to market our catering services to you.
Let’s start with the most important factor – our food. What makes us unique in Eau Gallie or Melbourne Florida? Well, we are unique because we slow smoke our meats. Most BBQ places grill their meats or cook them on an open fire, but we don’t, we smoke ours. All of our smoked meats are smoked for hours. This process makes sure that our meats are more than tender and each bite imparts its delicate BBQ flavor. [Read more…] about Having a Gathering?
Everyone loves a good restaurant and we are no exception. That’s why at Charlie and Jake’s, we make sure our restaurant is the kind of place we’d want to take our family or dine with our friends. We believe we have succeeded. Whether you come for lunch or dinner we think you will love our atmosphere.
Sometimes when you have a large party a restaurant may have trouble seating you all together unless you call ahead or wait until multiple adjacent tables free up. Not here, we have several different seating arrangements that make it easy for us to accommodate large parties or couples. Our open seating makes our restaurant a great place for conversation. We’re sure it will start with “Boy, this menu looks great. I can’t decide what to order,” and continue from there. Yep, our menu is a great ice breaker.
