Holy Chuck, Toronto, ON

In November 2011 I checked out Holy Chuck which had just opened in the 'hood where I work (Yonge/St. Clair).  I didn't have a great experience.

In January 2013, "Anonymous" left a couple comments on that post (1) ranting about how Holy Chuck makes the best burgers and (2) calling me a "dumbass" (I deleted that one).

Time to go back and check it out again ... maybe I had a bad meal.  I was in the office today (a rare occurrence lately) so had lunch at Holy Chuck.

They have a huge selection of burgers.

Johnny was at the cash and was very friendly.  While I was eating, he checked on me (and others) a few times to make sure everything was okay.  Excellent customer service!

I ordered a single burger (with mustard, ketchup, pickles and tomatoes), fries and a Coke Zero ($11.29). 

The burger and fries were okay, not great.  The burger was a bit bland and greasy.  It was smaller than burgers at other places but you are paying for quality not quantity.  I've had worse burgers, I've had better burgers.  There were lots of fries (too many to eat) and they had a different taste .. almost lemony?

So I gave it another try and wasn't sold on rushing back.

A burger place recently open close to my work, "Slam Burger". I love it. If you want to meet for lunch one day, let me know.
