Holy Chuck... Priest has nothing on this place.

Went yesterday (after wanting to go since it's opening).
I am a huge Shake Shack fan, I go to NYC at least 2-3x a year and go there probably 3x each time a visit. You can't get a comparable product in Toronto, the lack of Martin's potato rolls make it impossible.

However I find Priest pretentious, the product is often way to greasy and the fries are crap. Holy Chuck is none of that. The burgers are fresh tasting, the fries above average, the toppings fresh, the bun soft (and seems slightly larger than Priest). The location more convenient (right next to a subway station), much more (and more comfortable) seating and a full washroom for washing off all the grease.

Below are pics from the meal.

    I had the Depression (was it called that? I can't remember) yesterday. I reeked of onions afterwards but I didn't care. It was fantabulous.

      Sounds like the Oklahoma.

      When I went this past week, they had a sandwich board outside that listed four new menu items.

      I remember three of them.
      - a Duck burger - foie gras with some other stuff
      - the Oklahoma - the board said to ask inside about it, so I did - it's a burger with a LOT of onions in the burger meat
      - the "Pampered Cow" - two Wagyu beef patties with cheese

        here are menu items on the sandwich boards I've seen the past couple of times I went to Holy Chuck:

          I so want to eat the cheeky cow...

    2. +1 too. Had the Holy Chuck. Was deelish. Also, the funnel cake is awesome for shiggles.

      1. It's very good there. I'm a fan of BP, and Shake Shack is my favourite of the 3, but Holy Chuck belongs in the conversation.

        1. Liked the burger here for sure. Had their signature and it was good. Mine was as greasy as BP if not greasier though. Had a large pool of it coagulated on my tray after I was done.

          I wonder why they went with a religious theme to their brand? A bit too similar to the Burger's Priest if you ask me. Kind of a wack move on their part.

            A few random phrases from their website and online menu:

            We Don't Chuck Around
            Go Chuck Yourself
            The Farmers Threesome
            The Greek Bahahastard
            The Dirty Drunken Pig

            I have a feeling they're not all that religious.

            1. re: 5secondrule

              Ah, but you're wrong my friend, this clearly fits within the religious theme.

              Religious Hypocrisy.


          2. I'm also a pretty big fan of HC; BP is overrated...for me, I rather save the few minutes of time to travel out to Lawrence and actually have adequate seating.

            I like the Grind n Shine burger and their fries are far better than BPs.
