My colleagues and I had a breakfast meeting here, and the service was excellent. I had the 'Pain Perdu' (creole French toast), and boy was it good. The wait staff was very attentive, the restaurant was clean, and it filled up pretty quickly.

We come here once a month sometimes twice. The food is always good and prepared to order. The beers selection on tap and individual is very good. The whiskey options need help.

We were here with a large group and everything was great! Appetizers, drinks and meals. We especially enjoyed the nachos and hurricanes! Staff is attentive without being overbearing.

I recently ate at Chuck's with my brother in law. He highly recommended it. I had the Super Sampler and it was very good. The brisket was the best and it was fork tender. The BBQ Nachos are to die for - lots of meat....More

Hi Amanda, We do not have a milk gravy, only a sausage gravy, which is made fresh from scratch. We do have Egg Beaters and/or egg whites as an option for omelets. If you have any further questions, please let me know.
