Being from KC I have to say there's no comparison when it comes to BBQ. The pulled pork sandwhich was not bad however the beef brisket was chewy and tasted as if it had been reheated a couple of times. :(

The food is always very good -- great BBQ, ribs, cheeseburgers, chili mac, ... I've never been displeased with an order. The only problem is that it seems to take quite awhile when using the drive-through. There is a sign that says they aren't "fast" food. They will cook up each order fresh, so there will be a wait. So,... More

We had some relatives in town and they wanted some good barbecue so we went to Chuck's barbecue. It was very good. In fact it was better than expected. I had the ribs. My girlfriend loves the chow (her new favorite ), the hush puppies are a surprise because there's a mushroom in the middle. The bluegill is amazing. We... More

Food here is good but not great BBQ. Sandwich is a good size. They do a nice job with fried fish. Service could be better; took a long time for service and to get flatware. Asked twice for hot sauce; never came.

We've tried this restaurant several times, but always it was disappointing in some way or another. We have dealt with slow drive-through service, double credit card charges & very tough meat. We gave up trying. This is definitely a statement because we strongly try to support local businesses.

Chuck's is a convenient place to eat when you are tired of the typical fast food restaraunt. We had the cheeseburgers and they are delicious. Will try BBQ next time. Also hear they have great breakfast.
