For what it is, which is a cheap, no-atmosphere, old-school wings joint with shockingly old-school, mediocre "salads," this place is great: consistent and one of the only restaurants in Princeton one expects of a college town.

but tasty. A regular college hangout, with almost too many choices. They are know for their wings (which are bigger and better at Rocky Hill Inn) but if you are downtown and seeking that college urge - it is good for take out.

There's always good solid comfort food at Chucks -- wings, ribs etc. It's been a Princeton hangout forever.

Best wings in the area. Have been getting take out for years. Generally buy enough so there's left overs. Cheese steaks are worth a try too.

I am originally from Buffalo, NY and have eaten wings from all over. I can say that Chuck's wings are very good and prepared the "Buffalo" way. I can't say anything about the the rest of the menu because every time I go to Chuck's it is for the wings. If you are looking for a quick, casual lunch or... More

I have had wings everywhere, and this humble little place in Princeton has the best, hands down, no contest. I live well over a thousand miles away and the craving for these wings keeps me up at night. Always the first place to get food when I stop by.

I have bought buffalo wings a Chuck's for a number of years from their original owners to the newest owners. The recipe has remained the same for all of those years. As a former Buffalo native, I have tasted the wings from The Anchor Bar(the originator of the Buffalo Wings) to Duffs in Amherst(many consider the best wings) and Chuck's... More

I first ate Buffalo wings over 30 years ago at Chuck's and they remain as good as I remembered. Spicy but not too spicy. The combo plate with two sides makes for a good dinner.

There's nothing glamorous about the place, but the food is well worth many a repeat visit - succulent, tasty and spicy. Definitely have some celery and blue cheese dressing on the side, and fries.
