Special thank you to Reyna she is an amazing waitress. She made sure me and my family had a great time dining in at Chuck's.
You should have stayed put. Since you moved to the bowling alley your service and food has really been a disappointment. Where are the older women that were there for years and years. They knew my name and usually what I was going to order???? Did you get rid of them to hire these younger girls that are to busy on their phones to acknowledge they have customers??? We have been there five times since the move and will not go back. The last time was the last draw. I ordered onion rings that's it, because on order of rings would fill me up. What i received was a bunch of stuck together ONE piece blob of onion WHATEVER you want to call it. The waitress did not offer to take it back and the guys that were cooking didn't have a clue what they were doing. I don't know if Chucks was sold to bowling alley, or if the owners don't realize what a bunch of clueless children they have working for them. Bring back the original crew, cooks and waitresses. THAT'S WHAT CHUCKS WAS ALL ABOUT..... FAMILY!!!!!!!!!!
I'm the type of person that hears "restaurant inside a bowling alley," stops...and heads straight there. I don't need to know if the food is good or not. Just the fact that this type of shit still exists is enough to keep me interested. When I was a kid in the 90s, there used to be a restaurant inside South Bowl in South Sacramento. This is what Chuck's reminds me of. And the good news is, the food is killer! Standard diner fare; burgers and breakfast. You can sit in a booth or at the coffee counter, watching the cooks flip mounds of hashbrowns and huge pancakes simultaneously. Good bacon. I came for the "kitchen fries," whole potatoes, sliced thick, fried until crispy on the edges and soft in the middle. Nice to be able to sit there and zone out, watching the bowlers do their thing while you wait for your food. Not hard to see why this place stays busy.
I went for a quick breakfast on a Monday morning around 9 am. It didn't seem busy when I got there and I found a spot at the counter easily. I ordered a standard bacon and eggs breakfast fairly quickly. I then waited over 40 minutes with no breakfast. Are you kidding me? There were 2 guys working the grill. No gloves, no hairnet and handling the food with their hands. No hand washing either. Gross! Needless to say, I left starving. I won't be back.
ONLY disappointment was my chicken was FORGOTTEN on my soupsand no big but when I got the chicken it was so dry
Everything you see on DDD is at this place!Absolutely loved it!!Will find an excuse to go back.
Chucks is ALWAYS great. Even in the new location, I love the fries, large portions and Steve the owner is such a nice person.
Looking for a hearty breakfast? Chucks is a great option! The portions here are enormous! I personally love their omelets and and hash browns. Oh, and don't forget about the HUGE pancakes. Its almost impossible to eat more than one.
Service was fast and friendly. Not crowded at all. Pancakes were as I had read in reviews, very big...but in my opinion, not that tasty. Adding the syrup helped though. The hash brown portions were huge. Thank goodness I ordered the half plate but my son ordered the whole and it was ridiculously a lot...half the plate piled high. Unfortunately, no flavor except for the grilled brown part that tasted better. Not sure if they make it plain so one can season it to liking or what .. The ham and eggs tasted pretty basic but good.
First time back in twenty years, times have changed. Ordered my usual breakfast meal Tim's omelet just to stay safe. Very disappointed with food quality, too much chicken in large chunks in comparison to other ingredients & hashbrowns full of grease.I had to go to the Clucking Chicken to get right.
Hash browns, two eggs and toast. Hash browns crisp on the outside, mushy on the inside. Too thick for the inside to cook. Ordered eggs over medium, they were too runny. Toast was good and service was attentive. A fair meal. Probably will eat somewhere else next time. I miss the old Chuck's.
I went to this place nearly my whole 25 years in Stockton almost weekly. Came back from a 4 year move up north and it was still the same great food and portions as before. Covid hit and lockdowns happened which as we all know effected a lot of businesses. When Chuck’s reopened I was craving a good breakfast from there. What a shame as I found the food had gone down hill and the prices up. Portions are still good but the quality has just flat lined. I have gone back a couple more times after that just to give it a second and third chance. Still the same Denny’s quality food and a stupid high price. I won’t go back unless I hear of improvement.
Chuck's has always been good to me. Today was different/difficult due to short staff. Ever sense the pandemic. It's been tough for mom and pop businesses. I still ended up having a good time. With patience and a ? keeping this rating due to their loyalty and hardwork for the support of local families and beyond. Get here early to be first, in line to get service faster just a tip. I say Sundays is always a full house all and all. A great family restaurant with fun and friendly people POSITIVE YYEEESSSS!!!!™️
I look forward to eating at Chuck's every time I visit Stockton. The portions a very generous, the coffee and food is consistently great, as well as the service.
Had breakfast there this morning, the first time since the beginning of the pandemic. I've always enjoyed the place and the staff from the old location until now. It was pretty much as a remembered it. Lots of the kind of food you go to a place like that for--which is also why I kept feeling like my cardiologist was looking over my shoulder. There seem to be a log of negative reviews of Chucks these days. My response to them: if you don't like it, don't go back. Judging from the fact that there are nearly always people waiting in line, even with their expanded seating, there are obviously lots of people who love Chucks.
