I had heard mostly positive things about Chuck's but our family had never gone. We went last night and quite frankly I think everyone was a little disappointed. Amber took great care of us. The issues we had had nothing to do with service. My son had ribs which I tried one and the meat was tough. He had half... More

Had Chuck's Cajun Cakes and I bowl of Crab Corn Chowder. My wife enjoyed the Smoked Corned Beef sandwich. Washed it down with a couple of the days beer specials and it made for a great evening.

I've tried. 4,5 times and I am just not happy with their food, bar b que or otherwise. It's a fun place for a cocktail.

The food tasted great. There is a variety of BBQ sauces to choose from so I could have sweet and mild, my husband could have tangy and my 26 yr old son had spicy. He also loved the beer selection.

I didnt expect to have good jambalaya in suburban Chicago but it was pretty good. They had a fully stocked bar with everything and outdoor seating as well.

Ordered carry out tonight: the receipt on the bag listed what I ordered, but after I drove home, discovered I had a different meal. Drove all the way back. Their initial offer was only to remake the meal. I asked for compensation for my wasted time, was sent to the manager, who said they'd remake the meal quickly. I asked... More

Chuck's has pretty good BBQ, but if they are busy, service can be a little slow. However, this is a great place to meet friends for a nice meal in Darien!!

If you like Southern style cooking, this is the place to go. Good food and generous portions. They also have some Tex/Mex items on the menu. We go there when we want something different.
