Charlie Joseph Maloof was a Lebanese immigrant who got his start selling fruit from a cart in LaGrange in the late 1910s. By 1920, he and his wife opened their first Charlie Joseph’s restaurant on Main Street. This location, on Bull Street, opened in 1946 and has been the go-to place for hot dogs and hamburgers in downtown LaGrange ever since. The fifth generation of the family still owns and operates the business today.
