Pretty much a hamburger place with lots of choices. Not huge hamburgers just the right size with fries for those who don't want to pig out. Order at the counter, take your drink with you and find a table. A nice girl with bring your order to you. Had a model train running around the whole restaurant on an elevated... More

We recently had 2 cheese deluxe burgers & 2 large milkshakes. The beef is flavorless! Yuk! Not the same flavorful burgers we've always had. Also the milkshakes were SO thin & soupy, not thick at all. The owners must really be cutting back on quality to save money!!

I have been disappointed my last two visits so I probably won't return. They have a good selection of burgers and shakes but doesn't taste as good as in the past. Kids will like the toy train that runs overhead.

My husband and I go to Chuck Wagon every couple of months for the burgers and shakes/malts. I like the shakes. My husband likes the malts. They are better than most because they use quality ice cream. They have a variety of hamburgers. I don't think you will go wrong with anything you select. We usually split an order of... More

The inside atmosphere is a blast from the past with the great touch of having model trains on a variety of tracks moving around above you. It also has that feel from the staff. Although very young, probably their first job in some cases, but still very friendly and proficient at what the task at hand was. They were busy,... More

This has been the favorite hamburger place to go in Mt Vernon since the late 1940's and our friends used to cook there in 1962 & 1969 while in high school. They still make great burgers and milkshakes, but don't stay open past 8:30 on weekends so be sure to go early. And please update your aging 2006 sign &... More

We finally made a stop here after hearing it was voted best burger in Mt Vernon years ago. This would be an excellent place for kids ! I wish I had taken my son here when he was a few years younger, I doubt he would ever want to leave . The food is the important thing and although it... More

I visited the Chuck Wagon on my last night in America. I'd heard about the overhead toy railway and had seen the menu in advance. The 'Big Sue' four patty Burger in a six inch bun met my expectations as did the buffalo Burgers for my friends. Sadly only one of the trains was working as the others were being... More

The atmosphere is casual so kids are able to "be kids" to a point. Food is average. New owners tend to be "picky" about the kids. They need new hi-chairs as they were filthy. Bathroom is not real desirable either.

As we all know this restaurant is two years older than Moses and his been a staple in the valley for years for burgers and fries – whenever I'm in Mount Vernon this would be my first choice for a burger and fries – I especially enjoy their fries – I've become a bit of a five guys fan but... More
