Had an excellent burger here over the summer. Wish I remember which one it was... I definitely had the bacon timbit things too.. sweet jesus were they ever delicious! We definitely had to wait like 20 minutes for a seat, but it was well worth it.. Super small place, but really great food. Overwhelming for sure.. my eyes and brain... More

Me and 2 friends from Montreal came here due to Ya Gotta Eat Here tv show i saw. It is a very small place and we had to get a beer next door to wait for a table-well worth the wait. I had the 1/2 lb angus with gouda and mushroom, plus poutine - amazing! Best poutine outside of Mtl... More

We just happened to come across Chuck's while out shopping on Locke Street. We were seated right away. Our server was very friendly and the food came out quickly. I got the turkey burger with brie and pear, while my husband got the Fancy Shmancy (bison) burger. They were both very good, moist and flavourful! The burger was huge and... More

Stopped by Chuck's for a quick burger fix last night. Decided to try the Hawaiian burg made of ground bacon, w/pineapple and zesty bbq sauce *dr00l* It was amazing! I am still thinking about it this morning. Surprised by some of the comments on here. This was not our first visit but we have never had any issues with customer... More

The location is definitely small, which I can see as off putting for large groups, or if you have to wait while the weather outside isn't that great...but this little hole in the wall is so worth the wait! We started out with the candied bacon which was perfect in texture and a great balance of smokey and sweet. My... More

I went to Chuck's on a recommendation from a friend and I was very excited to try the Smoky Blue Haze with bacon. The burger was quite large; however, lacked in flavour. Blue cheese is a distinct taste and I did not experience that true blue cheese and the bacon was not crisp. The french fries were delicious. I ordered... More

I don't play favourites when it comes to burger joints. Hamilton has a solid top ten places where you can get a world class burger. Chuck's burger bar makes the top of that list on product alone. Try a specialty burger and a beer from their excellent bottle selection. Also Turkey Buffalo wings for the win!

Last week I called to place a take out order. Phone was ringing off the hook for over an hour. I drove 45 minutes to find out what was going on and they said their phone was broken. Fair enough this happens, but when they can post pictures and advertise on multiple social media sites, wouldn't it be good customer... More

Usually a bacon burger means some bacon on top of your burger. Not at Chuck's. Their bacon burger is made of ground bacon! So delish, my favourite hangover food!

We stopped off here on our way to NOTL because we craved a burger and the reviews and menu look interesting. They have a large selection of beers but only 3 on tap but at least they were good beers not the Molson Coors Bud selection. We started off with the cheese balls wrapped in bacon. Deep fried cheese wrapped... More
