I have been to Chuck's on various occasions both in Burbank and Darian. The food is tasty, with many varied choices available. The service is very good. My only issue is the price, which I feel is expensive for the quantity of food offered.

Hi Amanda, We do not have a milk gravy, only a sausage gravy, which is made fresh from scratch. We do have Egg Beaters and/or egg whites as an option for omelets. If you have any further questions, please let me know.
