A great combination of BBQ, Mexican and Cajun, with great specials. The Cochinita Pibil is incredible. They have a great rotating selection of draft beers with a lot of local stuff. Great bottled beer list also. This a totally casual, tshirt and jeans sort of place, with a nice New Orleans flavor. I have been there probably 100 times.

1st time here. Reaonably priced drinks, their stew was great and my husband really enjoyed the brisket dinner. Pretty cheap compared to other places of similar items and many flavorful foods.

Chuck's has a variety of dishes that are superb. Even his hamburger is delicious. It is definitely the best place in Burbank for BBQ and lunch or supper. Breakfast is also amazing!

Chuck Pine has a great selection of barbecue with a Cajun, Tex-mex flair. Don't try to figure it out, just go in and enjoy. Start with one of the daily soup selections. Parsnip is my favorite but any seasonal veggie cream soup will be a hit. I always order from the daily specials list. Really you can't go wrong on... More
