All was great except I asked for my chicken with the bbq sauce on the side and it came slathered.🤢. They offered to prepare it again but I said I could just as well scrape it off myself. Chicken was good, but it always frustrates me when you order smithing one way and it is served another.

We were in the area and told by locals it was good. We plan to try it again closer to our home where they have another location.

High quality food; poblano pepper soup, bbq shrimp, boudin balls appetizers and blackened catfish special were all top notch. Pleasant service too.

We really enjoyed our meal. Food was nicely seasoned and served piping hot! Great.

Tiffany provided good service without hovering over us.
The bathrooms were clean and they provided a sanitary door opening device to use.

BBQ pork is always great! Tried a new banana toffee cake - huge piece and delicious. Chuck's rarely disappoints.

Went there for the “Octoberfest” event they were adversing. My husbands draft beer was warm and as he said....the taps probably needed cleaning as their was an aftertaste after drinking it. Had the pretzel for starters which was very good and nice choice of two dipping sauces. Entree, the schnitzel was not good at all and mashed potatoes were cold. However the accompanying red cabbage was quite tasty. Have been to this restaurant many times and have never been disappointed, guess we should just stick to what we know is good there and not venture into their occasional special menu entrees!

Great food and staff. Variety in drinks. I asked for 2 high chairs as special request during reservation and once we got there the chairs were set up already.

Have been here several times, and every time we go, we are waited on way after others that get there before us. I thought we just had bad luck the first couple of times, but is happened again this weekend and it wasn't even busy. Three families that were sat after us, had their orders taken right away yet almost 10 minutes for our order to be taken. The food is really good, we finally made it for Beignet, however if you are looking for something similar to Cafe Du Monde, this is not the place for them.

Get out to Chuck's!! The brisket was done to perfection, the smoked chicken was excellent and the ribs were mouth watering! Our server Annie P. , made menu suggestions that were spot on and helped us choose from items agreeing with everyone's diet restrictions. The atmosphere is upbeat and fun. We will go back.

Keep dreaming that the food would be as good as it used to be. If I go again, I will get soup, which is still wonderful, and a few sides. The sides, especially the apple coleslaw are good. Ordered a piece of coconut banana cream pie to go. It had an odd texture, like it had been frozen and thawed. The bananas on top also had a odd texture. Threw it out. Very disappointing, it used to be a great place for fresh food.

Very nice place for breakfast the patio looks nice although it was a bit too chilly for me, being from Atlanta. I would recommend this place to anyone. The service was fantastic and the neighborhood surrounding was very pleasant. 😁😁

Any time Chuck does tapas, you should go. Every single taste is amazing. The variety is almost too vast but there’s something for everyone. Great way to try all kinds of yummy things in small portions for a reasonable price. The chorizo sprouts with bacon jam were INCREDIBLE, as were the lamb chops, but honestly, every bite was delicious.
