Holy Chuck wasn't like any other burger joint I've visited in the past. Yes, meat was prevalent in most burger joints, but this place seemed to, dare I say it, worship meat to a higher level. Most of the burgers offered had at least two types of meat included, including "The Holy Duck", which had a beef patty, double-smoked bacon and pan-seared foie gras, and there was one burger that was completely made of bacon, including the patties ("You Fat Pig"). If burgers weren't enough or weren't up your alley, a wide variety of chips and fries were also available, not to mention the milkshakes.

This burger joint is worth a detour to sample its creativity and downright worship of all things meat. If your appetite will only allow you to have a burger and a drink lighter than a milkshake, or if you're at risk of napping at work after lunch if you eat more, I'm sure the folks at Holy Chuck would understand.
