Holy Chuck doesn't chuck around. They use fresh meat ground in house daily. This Burger joint provides interesting menu options that go beyond the standard beef patty with cheddar. Some interesting items include lamb, beef and bacon patties, slow braised veal cheeks, seared Quebec foie gras, truffle oil, crispy mustard, and panko crusted Portobello mushrooms stuffed with feta and cream cheese to name a few.
In order to actually taste the burger patties themselves we went for the more simple options. THE DOUBLE CHEESE BURGER was a classic smash burger. Smash Burgers are created when the cook smashes a ball of ground meat onto the grill in order to create a crispy sear on the outside while locking in all the juices . The salty, homemade CRISPY CHIPS were sooo good, a must try.
Mmmm, THE HOLY CHUCK. Their signature burger is a double cheese burger, with bacon and caramelized onions. I added sautéed chilli peppers, ketchup, mayo and mustard, all against their advice.They like this burger to be served as is, but what's the fun in that?!?
We also ordered THE POUTINE, which came with thick gravy and real Quebec cheese curds. The gravy was a little salty; the crispy chips are a better choice.
