Great little "homey" restaurant. Everything I have eaten has been very good. My favorites are the pulled pork sandwich, fried catfish and onion rings. You get fairly large portions too. Friday is all you can eat catfish. Service is a little slow but I think it's because there just aren't enough waitstaff. Definitely try the onion rings!!

I visited Chuck's with my family of 7 and was totally impressed. I had the barbecue ribs and brisket and my family had the fried catfish. Both were legit! The barbecue had great flavor and the catfish was fried but wasn't greasy at all. Even my kids ate and didn't complain. Our waitress had her hands full cause the other... More

All of the food here is great. The catfish is awesome--as is the chicken fried steak. We were here on a Friday night, so the place was super busy and service was slow. The servers were friendly and doing the best that they could under the circumstances. We definitely will return!

Chicken fried steak good as usual. My portion was just right but my husband ordered large. Not as large as use to be but probably because price of beef has gone up so much. Good service, reasonable prices.

This is the best place to get ribs. I find that ribs are always hit and miss but I've never had bad ribs from Chuck's. We live in Georgetown but stop by when we get a chance. Last time I had the chopped steak with mashed potatoes and it was excellent as well. The staff is always friendly! There was... More

After 6 months of swearing we would not be back, well everyone deserves a second chance...but not this place!! We went on a Tuesday night, there were only 5 couples in the whole place & 3 couples were already eating. Our order was promptly taken and after 25 minutes sitting and waiting I starting trying to think was I really... More

We've been coming here for several years and sharing a plate of fish. We ask the waitress why the extra charge she said it was because we shared the order. I said this must be something new she said yes but she doesn't make the rules it's on the menu. Older people don't eat that much at night and sometimes... More
