Great burgers.

My son and I were in hamilton for the weekend and craving a good home cooked burger. We found this place online and we were attracted by the reviews and menu options. When we arrived, I was happy to see that it was in a nice uptown section of the city with a number of quaint shops and bars close... read more

Usually we don't mind waiting for hours to eat at chucks. But tonight the food was terrible it was definitely not worth the wait. The burgers we ordered were burnt but raw in the middle, and somehow cold, along with the bacon and tasteless poutine. The server was nice enough to discount our bill having explained all this. The staff... More

Since Chuck himself is a vegetarian I was expected the most fabulous veggie burger. Unfortunately it crumbled right before my very eyes. The bun was spongey and felt almost as if it had been thawed from frozen. Thank goodness the fries were delicious, until I found a beard hair in them. I left hungry and disappointed. Not worth the 20... More

I had an overall great experience at Chuck’s Burger Bar. The place is small and a bit uncomfortable but the food and staff spoke for themselves. You’ll find a huge variety of burger patties and toppings to choose from. I tried the lamb burger because any place that can do that right deserves people’s money. They have several house made...

You can't go wrong with Chucks. They have amazing burgers Beef, Turkey, Veggie and others. Get there earlier with an appetite, seats are always full at eating hours. Expect to wait or do take-out. We have friends that visit from Montreal their #1 choice is "Chucks" coming from a city that is known for the majority of Canada's best restaurants,... More

Came here for my dad's birthday because he loves burgers. Usually he raves over anything he eats and he couldn't even finish his burger because it was tasteless. Don't recommend coming here as its pricy and you have to wait a while to get your food. Also the kitchen looked kinda dirty. If you go to McDonald's you could have... More

"You don't have to eat here!" Shame on you Catucci this place is not worthy! Chuck's is a small dingy but kinda cool spot, and you are certain to wait for a table with only few limited seats. Our party had to be separated due to the lack of seating. The hostess and waitress were very nice, but the back... More

The bottom line is that Chuck's makes a great burger but the restaurant itself is so small, patrons likely second guess going because they will almost never get a seat. Take out is a good alternative but at peak times be prepared to call more than once and to wait approximately 45 minutes for the food to be prepared. The... More
