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.

This is a place to get wings. It's simple foods but they do it very well. My favorite thing to get is the buffulo popcorn chicken. The burgers and sandwiches are okay. The seafood options are mediocre. The mozzarella sticks are just a little but greasier than what you can buy at frozen at a supermarket. There is a tv... More

This little cafe is the epicenter of the best buffalo wings around, bar none. The wings taste very fresh. The buffalo suace is unique and very tangy. It's so good, after you eat the meat off the bone, you keep dipping the bone into the buffalo sauce just to keep tasting it, it's so good!

It was such a nice surprise to discover that the wings at Chuck's cafe come close to Duff's in Buffalo, NY. You will only like this place if you like what I call the "real" Buffalo wings. They are not meaty, a little dry and a taste I can only describe as a tiny sour in addition to the spiciness.... More

I love coming here for downtown Princeton flavor. Great place for fantastic Buffalo wings, quick in and out for lunch and the line always moves. In summer, take it to go and eat on a bench in Palmer Square. Fun, fun, fun!
