That's correct....it's NOT....Chuck's....It's just Chuck Burger Joint.....It's on PGA BLVD just east of the Florida Turnpike.....I know it's Palm Beach.....not Broward or Dade.....It is a shameless copy of Shake Shack.....all the way down to the custard.......IDENTICAL....and very good.......

    There's nothing too new or exciting hereat Chuck's on the burger front. This place is cheaper than Carmine's and the burgers are very good but on the small side. The fries are frozen crinkle cuts and they should ditch those. Both Carmines and 5 Fat Guys are fresh cut fries and separate themselves from Chuck in that category. Cheeseburger, fries, and itty bitty bottle Fiji water was ~ $9.50

      I'll respectfully disagree with freakerdude....the crinkle cut fries (although frozen) we're cooked to a golden tone and extremely good.....I'm a 6'7, 300 pounder and the "Double Chuck" with fries and a chocolate / peanut butter shake and one scoop of vanilla custard was all I could eat!....I could see where their 'single' would be smallish....but the 'Double Chuck" is a hefty burger and with the fries, shake and custard it was an awesome meal.......At 5 Guys the only thing I do like are the fries with the cajun seasoning....beyond that.......a fair at best experience.....What quality burger joint doesn't serve a milkshake???.....5 Guys doesn't and that's why I don't go there.....Also at Chuck they make ice cream floats......have interesting sodas in cans and on tap......they also serve beer and wine and have a nice selection there as well.....Chuck was easily better......
