#87 Holy Chuck

Holy Chuck

Holier than the Priest, Chuck’s mission is that same all-American flat-top burger with American cheese on a buttered bun. We’re wowed by their signature The Holy Chuck: Two fat patties, rich and juicy, topped with caramelized onion, bacon and cheese. Don’t ask for ketchup; they’re religious about their toppings. Almost as much fun is the double lamb burger with perfectly roasted red peppers and garlic feta aïoli. Unfortunately the fries are no better than the Priest’s — sometimes pale and underdone. But the shakes — the shakes are what happened with Hamilton Beach met Eros. Thick, rich, creamy and smooth, they go down slow and sexy. Best are bacon, fudge and sea salt (Really! Find the bacon bits and swoon.) and Nutella with peanut butter. This is pop culture for foodies.
