This place is an institution. It has been in the same place for years with the same menu. Trends may come and go, but the chuckbox remains unfazed. If it aint broke, don't fix it. This place is small and cramped and if you go at lunch the line is out the door- that says something. The place is worth the wait. Great burgers at reasonable prices.

Burgers any size, made to order, while you watch, pay after you are handed your greshly grilled, over an open charcoal grill. With a huge Toppings Island, YOU finish them exactly the was you love. Chicken and hotdogs also cooked same way. Fries, onion rings, and wing also cooked to order. I would put their burger up against any in the country. A+++ and right in the middle of the largest university in the US, ASU !! Rustic atmosphere but five star burgers!! THE BEST and worth waiting in line if there is one.

At Chuckbox you yell your order across the room when it's busy. The burgers are legit, nothing fancy just great meat. Cash only, parking can be tricky like in all downtown Tempe.

There's nothing fancy about the Chuckbox. The building is not fancy, in fact it is far from that. You won't find an endless array of burgers as at some other places, nor will you find another Chuckbox other than in Tempe. What you will find are fresh and tasty burgers cooked over a wood fire right in front of you. These are burgers that don't require a lot of toppings, although the usual are available. Whenever in the Phoenix area, the Chuckbox is a must stop. In a sea of chain restaurants, the Chuckbox shows how it should be done: simply and with quality.

This quaint burger spot right near ASU is a hit with the locals and those visitors lucky enough to find this gem. The burgers are the main stay that is for sure and worth the line up which may almost go out the door. There are many burger variations available so study up before you shout your order in from 4 or 5 customers back. The parking lot is a busy one but there is metered parking on the road and across the street. Although the decor may not be five star, the burgers more than make up for it.
