But the Chuck Box is in a league all to itself. It's as unrefined and unpretentious as it gets. None of that pseudo intellectual tripe here. Just good burgers. I was amazed to see this place run by just two college students on the night I went there. from cooking to cashier to busing tables.
The place has a sign out front that says over 278 sold! hilarious place, but with serious food.
The burgers are cooked over a mesquite charcoal grill and you step right up to "Juan" as he's grilling and tell him what you juan, and he slaps it on the grill in front of you and you move down the line and get your beer or soda. Just like they do at Pinks hot dogs in LA. Then you travel back around and wait for your burger to be done.
I love fries, but I love onion rings more. The rings at Chuck Box are not the best item on the menu. maybe because I like my rings with Panko crumbs and not a batter base, which the ones here are.
Ok so it's by a major college campus and it has a funny spokesman. but it really works and is a very good little dive of a place.
And if you want to volunteer to take pictures. I will buy ya a beer....or two.
