Hamburger Help Her

This Chuck-A-Burger is new, but its food is classic and delicious

Chuck-A-Burger was started up by a man named Bud Taylor. One of his first managers was Ralph Stille, who went on to become vice president of the empire. Stille's son Ron now owns Chuck-A-Burger, and he's looking to expand once more. He may well succeed. Vintage-car enthusiasts, men in leather jackets and women in poodle skirts still cruise Chuck-A-Burger on weekends -- the one in St. Charles, anyway, the one Ron calls "three times as big and four times as beautiful" as the Rock Road location. Ron says he still uses all the original recipes (since day one, he adds, Chuck-A-Burger has cooked only with vegetable oil; no animal fats). And Ron's mother sews the car-hop uniforms.

Like I said, you'll be able to spot Chuck-A-Burger pretty easily. It's beyond McDonald's.

Simply classic: The new Chuck-A-Burger shares the original's style and sizzle.
