A great burger joint

My friend and I with the aid of my GPS, drove by 3 times before we found this wee place. So glad we did find it. Was difficult choosing just one of the many burger offerings, but we both couldn't resist trying the guilty pleasure, a patty made mostly of ground bacon. Toppings were on point with a... read more

We went here for lunch one day before an event we went to in Hamilton and it was to die for! We almost wanted to come back after for dinner! We highly reccommend it and will be back next time we are in Hamilton!

The restaurant was small, but it made for a great experience. The burgers were delicious, and the staff was very friendly. I will continue to return to chucks!

We went out for what we thought was going to be a quick meal. I paid for an hour street parking thinking it would be more than plenty of time. Not so much. The place was almost empty and a large number of take-out orders were going out ahead of us be served our food. We had high hopes that... More

Four of us (2 adults and 2 children) went to Chuck's prior to a show at Hamilton Place. We arrived at 6:00, took the high-top at the window and were promptly greeted by the waitress. She took our drink order (was patient with the kids) and returned quickly with our drinks. While ordering, the waitress suggested we not each order... More

So small and crowded that it's unpleasant to be in there. Takeout is tricky because they often don't answer the phone, and have repeatedly gotten our (relatively simple!) orders incorrect. The waitstaff always seems harried and rude. The food is good, but, you're paying for something of higher quality than what you're getting, and the customer service experience has never... More

Lot's of burger choices. Worth the wait. Possibilities include ordering a preset choice i.e. meat and toppings or a build your own burger with the meat and toppings of your choice. Sliders are a popular favourite. Our waiter was extremely congenial and accommodating! Beer choices are plentiful, but sadly, no wine. A funky little spot!

I remember when this place first opened they made the absolute most deadly blue cheese burger. Juicy, cooked medium, lots of sauce and a kick of blue cheese. My visit in June was nothing like my memory of Chucks. We sat at the bar as the restaurant was full for a late lunch. We ordered the blue cheese burger cooked... More

I just don't get it. My friends and I tried the food here after hearing all the rave reviews and seeing it on "You Gotta Eat Here". We were completely disappointed (not to mention, disgusted) by how terrible the food was. The only decent item were the fries. They were crispy on the outside, soft inside, and tasted good. The...

I always get only burgers and sweet potato fries in my order. I've had the wings before but wasn't too impressed, same with the onion rings. It can get a bit pricey when you include 'fancy' drinks in your order. However it is the best burger bar in Hamilton and for that, I will keep returning for the occasional visit.
