Chuck Wagon

Here’s what’s in Chuck Wagon’s Niki Special–a thin cheeseburger topped with grilled onions, ketchup, mustard, lettuce and a huge pile of gyros meat inside a soft sesame seed bun. All for $4.95.

The Wilmette lunch counter’s sandwich is a marvel of greasy harmony–the perfect balance of meaty cheeseburger and salty gyros mediated by the sweetness of onions and ketchup and united by a certain oily goodness.

  1. I can’t believe that you’ve been to the Chuck Wagon. The entire restaurant is about 6 feet by 12 feet. Good eatin’.
