I had read that Retro Burger, which was in the neighbourhood where I work (Yonge/St. Clair), was gone and Holy Chuck had taken its place. I'd only been to Retro Burger once (they weren't in the 'hood all that long) and I didn't think it was too bad.
I thought I'd check Holy Chuck out for lunch today.
What they emphasize is that they grind their burger in-house and it's never frozen ... sounded good to me!
I ordered a single burger, fries and a Diet Coke ... it came to just over $11.
I'd asked for mustard, ketchup, tomatoes and pickles on my burger. They forgot the tomatoes and pickles so I had to go back for them.
The burger was $5.49 ... not cheap for a single burger with no cheese or bacon. Here it is:
Considering the cost, it was small. The bun reminded me of a cheap generic grocery store bun. The burger was kind of tasteless and really greasy. The fries were a mixture of hot and cold fries, alas mostly cold ones.
Needless to say, I won't be back.
They have a challenge if you are up to it. If you can eat this monstrous burger (The Go Chuck Yourself - six patties, six cheese, triple bacon, caramelized onions and stacked between three grilled cheese sandwiches) and drink a milkshake within six minutes, you get it for free and go up on the hall of fame wall. The best time right now is three minutes. Ewwww!
