Great southern, Cajun, BBQ, and mexican food. They have the best green beans I have ever had in my life. Dishes can be sophisticated in technique but not at all pretentious in price. They always have daily food specials but also do other special dishes once every few weeks. Chuck himself spoke with us twice on this visit which was very cool. Love this place and will return again and again.

Thank you for coming to Darien!
I have been so excited about this restaurant opening here- I couldn't wait. There are no decent restaurants in this area, so this was sorely needed. Thank you for bringing your homesyle cooking to my neighborhood. My family and I will support your great food as much as we can. We ordered a sampling of everything on our first visit - brisket, ribs, chicken, crab cakes. Everything was delicious. The bloody marys were like a meal in a glass - awesome!

Loved this place. Been to
Loved this place. Been to their location other as well. Food is top notch and a great beer selection. Servers are generally knowledable about the menu. Only complaint is that it seems like they run out of their specials frequently.

Don't like BBQ & LOVED Chuck's
Went with a group of 6 for a bday. Still looked like they were in the midst of decorating? The layout/atmosphere isn't the greatest but that doesn't matter becasue the food and service are outstanding. Really great authentic BBQ carried over to this west suburban location from the original. Great classic drink choices and tons of beer. Get the brisket, its amazing! Servers and runners are friendly and helpful.

Delicious, as usual!
We've been a customer since the 79th & Central location. Glad you are in our neighborhood (Darien) now. We can come more often. Liked using Open Table.

Great food great location
I brought my friends here for dinner before a show. All of our food was very good. The only complaint I have is inexperienced wait staff. Our waitress was obviously annoyed when we asked her to bring something to the table. I think she was overwhelmed with the amount of tables she had and was taking it out on us. This is a fairly new restaurant and I hope they weed out the bad waiters and waitresses. Then it will be perfect!

The mussels (occasional special
The mussels (occasional special appetizer) are not to be missed; they were cooked to perfection, not the least bit shriveled or dried out, very tasty, and in abundance. I had the Friday special entrée, which was Carne Asada (tenderloin tails with a wonderful brown sauce with mushrooms and ancho chile), which immediately became my favorite menu item.

Date night with the hubby
I had the chicken fried chicken which was delicious and my husband had the Friday night special which he liked very much. Awesome bloody Mary's. definitely worth a try.

Awesome beignet breakfast
I waited a month to come to this because they only serve beignets once a month. Well worth the wait. I also tried the biscuits and gravy that were to die for.

Great place for breakfast
Since chucks has opened in Darien they have been attracting a steady following. I took my friend here for breakfast on a Sunday morning. I had a Mexican version if eggs Benedict recommended by our waiter- it was delicious. I will definitely order again. My friend order regular eggs Benedict and liked it very much. We also ordered a side if biscuits and gravy- to due for!

Good place to watch the Bears on TV
We were there for the recent Sunday night game. They had a "reserved" sign on one of the prime hi-tops, next to the window with views of four different TVs. Tasha was an excellent server, she realized we were there for the long haul but still kept checking on us during breaks in the action. The food was solid as always. The two people I was with had never been there before but both thought they'd be back the next time they were in the area.

Went to Chucks for second time. It was a busy Satruday. You need a reservation! The service was very good. My friends and I had the nachos which are awesome. They come with chicken and cheese and a great barbeque sauce! There is enough for 4. We ordered the Ribs and a half slab is huge. Overall the food was very good and the atmosphere was fun and the service was good. It's a great place to have barbeque and just hang out. I've been there twice now and am very impressed. Uncle Bub's move over!!

I've been a fan of Chuck's in Burbank for years. Now, I am a fan of this Chuck's as well.

Great Beignets & breakfast
The beignets were outstanding, as good as Café Du Monde in New Orleans. Better yet, they came with chocolate and vanilla dipping sauce. What a taste treat. I also had a great seafood omelet with hash browns and Au Lait coffee. Great way to start the 1st Saturday of the month. Too bad the Darien location only has this once a month.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome as usual
Great food and service yet again. Chuck's never disappoints!
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everyone in my party enjoyed their meals. I thought the chicken-fried chicken was delicious and the green beans were great with a spicy kick. Will definitely return!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great location & excellent food!
It is so super that Chuck took over this location.....the food excellent and has a huge garden in back that he uses in season....Service is excellent and the bar manager Brain is really helpful....everyone there seems to enjoy working there and that does make for a good time.....the food is geared for BBQ items, but can find excellent other choices....the fish was very good....
It does get very loud, but the servers and good food makes it seem OK.....we have been back many times and can't wait to go back again....we have only be there in the evening...

We went with our best friends. The food, beer and cocktails are fantastic. Huge beer selection and you can make up your own beer flight selection!

Great Place for Dinner or Lunch
Loved the place. Menu has enough unique items that at a reasonable price. We loved our meal items. Would definitely recommend to all. Haven't tried their breakfast menu, that will be our next trip there.

Chucks Darien is outstanding. There is no difference between this one and the one in Burbank. We went in a friday night and it was packed. Wait time was an 1 1/2 hour wait. But thanks to open table i made resv at 6:10 for 6:45 and was sitting at a table by 6:50! After dinner wewe moved toto the bar and stayed at the bar till midnight.

Chucks Southern Comforts + Mexican
This was our 4th visit to Chucks in Darien and each time I have tried a different menu item. First three times I had one of the specials of the day(Mexican pulled pork is Sat special) and all were delicious. Roast turkey with mole was savory was also fantastic. This visit I had BBQ sampler including wings and brisket. Brisket was so tender, you could cut with a fork. All of the fat had been rendered out which made for terrific texture. Wing were my least favorite item as I was expecting grilled BBQ wings, but they were fried.
Only complaint was having to wait about 20 minutes for our 6pm Open Table Rez. We were able to find one seat in the crowded bar and order an adult beverage. Very impressive draft beer list too.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food was excellent, service was also! Great beer list!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Love this Place
Seriously just love this place, the barbeque and the daily specials are fantastic. We just keep going back, trying new things all the time. My favorite is pulled pork, green beans and mac 'n cheese, with a beer!
We will continue to be regulars as we love most everything.
thank you for coming to Darien, we hope you continue to thrive!
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Delicious - Great Food
We initially went to Chuck's Burbank location and were thrilled to see him open a restaurant in Darien, so close to home. The barbecue and Mexican dishes are great! You must save room for dessert though. It delicious as well. I highly recommend Chuck's
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Open Table Works!
I made a reservation for a Saturday at 5:45 pm. The restaurant was crowded when we arrived. I was pleased to have a table waiting for our party of six.
The food is great. I enjoyed the Pulled Pork Sandwich with the Brunswick(?) soup.

Premium bbq at a premium price

EXCELLENT RIBS. BEST I EVER
EXCELLENT RIBS. BEST I EVER HAD. MY WIFE HAD THE GARDEN SALAD WITH GRILLED CHICKEN. LOVED IT.

Great first time experience
A group of 5 of us decided to try out this resturant. It was extremely easy to make reservations online. The service was excellent and the food was everything we hoped for and more. I've already recommended Chucks Southern Comforts Cafe to a bunch of family and friends.
12/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good Food At A Reasonable Price
Our entrees were very good as was service. Great selection on Beers if that is your thing. The only real issue was dessert. We ordered to of the same dessert. One was perfectly fine, the other was a mess. A shame.

Chuck's stands behind their food
I've been to chuck's in Darien several times-love their food!- this time I ordered the jalapeño cornbread and it was served quickly but was still cold in the center. They brought another one out and it was the same thing. The manager came to talk to us and apologized for the problem, removed the corn bread from the bill and gave us a gift card. I was shocked. I thought that was a very generous gesture. I will continue to patronize chuck's fir their great food but I'm happy to know that if I have a problem that they stand behind their food.
