Charcoal Pit grills the best burgers, blends the best shakes and offers the best service, and you’d be hard-pressed to find folks who treat kids better. For 54 years, servers at the Concord Pike icon have endured Sweet 16 birthday parties, scooped ice cream for muddy little leaguers, and provided a safe zone for awkward first dates.

From 2012:

They’re flame-broiled at The Charcoal Pit, and that makes all the difference. Choose a
quarter-pound burger or a bigger one, either “deluxe” or “special.”
