I’m back once again with another restaurant review. Anyone who knows me, knows I love a good burger and apparently my city ( Hamilton) has a hidden gem in Chucks Burger Bar. I was watching an old episode of ‘You Gotta Eat Here” and I saw Chuck’s on there. I must say,as I watched, I was just salivating!
Let’s talk about my Chuck’s experience! It is pretty small( this is not the place to host a large birthday gathering) but it is so cozy inside. There is a long bar where there is seating available and then there are tables for two throughout the rest of the space. There are tv’s there showing mainly sporting events. Chuck’s is a fully licensed bar serving liquors and beer on tap and by the bottle.
Inspired by what I saw people order on the show, I ordered the “Guilty Pleasure” burger which is a burger made out of ground bacon ( yes I said ground bacon) I had that with a classic poutine on the side. In hindsight, I probably could have done without the poutine because the burger was so filling but.. YOLO (lol)
This burger was probably one of the best burgers I have ever had in my life! It was so juicy and seasoned to perfection. It was cooked medium well which really allowed the flavours to come through. The bun was so soft, which made the burger so easy to maneuver, Mind you, it is inevitable, that you are going to get a little messy eating this burger so this might not be first date worthy! 😛
Chuck’s is also note worthy for its poutine. The menu offers a variety of different kinds such as a lobster poutine or a grilled veggie poutine or the classic poutine Québécois. Next time I go I think I will try a novelty poutine
For those of you who aren’t Canadian and don’t know what a poutine is, here is a definition:
a dish of French fries topped with cheese curds and gravy.( sooooooooo goooooood) 🙂
Chuck’s Burger Bar is located on Locke St in Hamilton Ontario, (194 Locke St S) Parking is a little difficult down there as it is limited to street parking so we actually walked from the downtown core and that took us about 15 minutes walking briskly 🙂
The prices are pretty reasonable for a gourmet burger bar ranging from 8-15 dollars for a meal ( burger, coleslaw, fries and a pickle)
I would encourage anybody in the Hamilton or greater surrounding area to pop into Chucks and try one these great burgers! I certainly will be back. Grab your mate or a pal and indulge in this great food experience!
