  • "I had the Cochinita Pibil - it was every bit as good as Guy Fieri promised. But my wife's from new Orleans and she found the real prize on the menu - The New Orleans Crawfish Etouffee! It was as good as or better than any we've' had in new Orleans. We'll definitely be back."

  • "This was my third visit. I will say the food is very good,but could be warmer! Our waitress seemed to be distracted. Loved the Ruby Red Grapefruit margarita. I am a big fan of pulled pork, but it could be a bit warmer. The hostess is so very nice."

  • "I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Chuck's! The food was hot, fresh, delicious and abundant! It's a comfort type of place where you can be free to loosen the belt buckle (might have to after your meal)! Price wise, was very reasonable! My friends and I had pretty hefty meals with drinks and desserts for under $20 a piece. Overall, Chuck is alright with me!!"

  • "We went to celebrate my husbands birthday as he grew up in Bridgeview and frequently went to Chucks for meals. The food is always very good and they have an extensive beer list. The service was good. The only thing that I could complain about would be that the table we were sitting at did not have the thing of BBQ sauce, sugar, salt and pepper on it. There were 4 of us so the table space available was being used and since there were table around us not being used we did not mind having to get up and go to another table for those items when they were needed."

  • "I dine at Chuck's here and there throughout the year. The service is sometimes off, as it was when I previously went. The waiter himself was very friendly, but I was sat in the very first booth close to the door that was constantly being opened and this was at a time when the temperature outside was below zero. I made this reservation five days before, so I am not sure why they did not reserve a better seat for me. We asked to be moved more towards the back and they were understanding of why we wanted to move. There have been other times where the seating or service was an issue,. By service being an issue, I mean attitude. Other than the service, the food is always amazing and I will always come back to chuck's for that reason alone."

  • "I had heard so many good things and read so many good things about this place. But it did NOT live up to my expectations. The food took over 30 minutes to be set before us. The waitress acted like we were being impatient when we asked for status on the food. I had an eight year old child with me who did not understand why it was taking so long. When it came I expected for be wowed and I was not. I asked for eggs scrambled hard, but they were all brown from where they had been overscrambled. I was unhappy for sure!"

  • "Our party of four had dinner reservations at 5:15 on the Saturday night of St. Patricks Day weekend. We arrived on time and were seated promptly at our table in an otherwise packed place. Despite the crowd, our service was friendly, and non hurried. Our appetizer of BBQ nachos was delicious and plenty for four. My husband had the corned beef sandwich, loved it. All in all, we each had something different, each extremely satisfied. Lots of fun, lively place, excellent food. Definitely recommend this!"

    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "I've been going to Chucks for 25 years I have to say that I wish the fire never happened and he did not expand. I truly believe that Chuck does not care about the food anymore. My last 12 experiences at the new place have told me this. Out of our 6 dishes on the Mardi Gras menu, I can truly say the only one that was good was the steak poivre. The presentation on all the small plates was so lacking it was truly disappointing. Throwing some little itty bitty fried shrimp on a plate with a small plastic cup of sauce & nothing else is just so sad. The rest of the menu had the same nasty tasteless no flavor cream sauce over it and not having bananas foster on Fat Tuesday, come on! Please Chuck if you read this QUALITY CONTROL I need say no more."

  • "For it being our first time there it was what we expected it to be. AWESOME!! On top of great service the food was good. We enjoyed the ribs which was the reason we went there. The nachos were great also!! There are other varieties of food which we will definitely want to return to try. All in all our family outing was great and we will definitely return!!"

  • "This was a fun place for barbecue and decent Mexican food. Had expected live Zydeco music and were disappointed with the music which wasn't Zydeco. The service was very good and friendly but the food was only average."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Your food was ok. I was a little disappoint with the ribs because they had a funny taste. But our server was exceptional. It was my son's birthday and she was very helpful. During our visit we never felt rushed. She came around enough but didn't hover. I would return because of the service hoping I would enjoy the food a bit more next time."

  • "My friends and I have been going to Chuck's for years now. This place NEVER disappoints! The food (ANYTHING you get!) is always great! The service is attentive and quick and on the spot, and Chuck himself is usually roaming and making sure everything is well. I can NOT recommend this place enough for BBQ!"
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "Our server (Mike, I think) was awesome. There were four of us and he was very patient in letting us decide and make changes. The ribs were tender and the other meats were exactly the way I like them prepared."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "Chucks has the best BBQ around, you can smell it down the block, and once you get in making a choice really difficult because everything is awesome. If you've ever been here, you will know, you haven't been disappointed. The meat is succulent, falls off the bone, and is fresh smoked. Great choice, we travel from Indiana to dine, and will continue to."

  • "Chuck's is one of the most consistently great restaurants in our part of the world. The service, the food quality and the prices are extraordinary, and worth every minute! Very highly recommended!"

  • "While Chuck's used to be a great little secret that not everyone new about, word has spread and now it seems everyone has either tried or heard about it. With a great blend of Cajun, Tex-Mex and Comfort food Chuck's has something for everyone and we have never been disappointed. A refreshing change from some of the chain restaurants and "coffee shop" type places sprinkled across the south side it is nice to have a place to go for a family dinner, date night or a special occassion in a fun, casual atmosphere."

Fantastic, personable staff and service are always professional and they do their best to make guests welcome and comfortable.

The bar is great for groups with kids because it is lively and there is plently of seating. Overall, Chuck's is a gem and I only wish there wish there was a location in Beverly!!"

  • "Our recent visit to Chuck's was good, as always. Even though it was packed, our server was very attentive. The food was very good (we had the shrimp/crab dip for an appetizer and pulled pork, bbq chicken, cochinita pibil, and rib tips for dinner). The only negative was the rib tips. We have been to this restaurant many times over the years, and it seems that the quality and quantity of the rib tip orders decreased/declined. They were on the skimpy side and some were burned/inedible. Other than that, though, everything was great."
