Chuck Burgers is renowned locally as much for its cocktails and great atmosphere at the weekend as it is for its lip-smacking food served during the week. Inside, exposed brickwork is adorned with bespoke murals and artwork, while the staff bring American charm and are helpful and attentive.
Chuck’s well-stocked bar offers a range of cocktails as well as Depth Charges and Picklebacks, and a good selection of wine, beer and milkshakes. I enjoyed a refreshing Drunken Harrovian: gin, elderflower liqueur, grapefruit juice and Prosecco with my starter. I began with exceptional tortillas with homemade guacamole and salsa, which set the tone for the American-sized portions to come. The sweet and spicy Korean barbecue wings had just the right kick while the slow-smoked baby back ribs were tender and juicy. For the main event I decided to indulge in the Piggy Burger – the 28-day-aged Chuck steak burger hidden beneath succulent barbecue pulled pork. The indulgence – and generous portions – continued through to dessert, as I was treated to a lavish lava chocolate pud served hot with a gooey centre, topped with vanilla ice cream. With a popular weekend brunch menu, children’s menu and lunchtime deals too, Chuck Burger is one to have on your radar – if it isn’t already.
