Dining Guide

Chuck’s Bar-B-Q and Burgers

“The good smell in Evadale” is the tag line painted on a wooden fence beside Chuck’s Bar-B-Q and Burgers which sits about thirty minutes north of Beaumont. Folks say the local paper mill produces a stench, and the smoke from owner Chuck Howard’s pit is sometimes the only relief. I didn’t get a whiff of any pulp, but the “burger” end of the name is what perfumed the dining room just after the lunch hour. Just as many diners come for grilled meat as they do smoked, but it’s hard to argue against either.

  • Now I know how Chuck gets that wonderful smokey flavor in his burgers. I’m here about once a month and it is always a bright spot on my trips to SETX. Super nice people to boot.

    Pleasant surprise for SE Texas. Had a sliced beef sandwich and kids loved homemade potatoes chips. Cool interior too.

    Chuck’s is my favorite BBQ! Love the Redneck Nachos, slice beef and the great atmosphere!
