The original Hungry Charley's opened on the hill in 1970 was a classic rathskeller-style college bar, with dark lighting, low ceilings, heavy and uncomfortable wooden booths, and the constant clanging of pinball machines (it was the 70s, after all). It was actually a franchise, as there were multiple Charley's in several college towns in the northeast at the time. The giant basement room where it all started in Syracuse was located directly below the location of Chuck's Cafe, which operated at 727 Crouse until the building was razed to make way for new development in 2017. The original Charley's closed for a while in the 1990s only to be revived 6 years later later as Hungry Chuck's with new owners. And with some of the same 1970s furniture from the original, but sadly without most of the artwork, including a painting of Jesus entering a bathtub (?)...many old timers remember the original, cavernous space and nickel beer night!

I was really happy to find a Chuck’s shirt available on the site. It was a place my friends and I spent a lot of time. The shirt is good quality and I certainly would buy again from this site if some other Marshall St. bars and restaurants show up.
My only complaint is the printing on the shirt is slightly off center and kind of twisted. It’s not enough to keep me from loving it, but I can’t give 5 stars.
Wish I'd ordered the orange cotton instead of the heather grey. I'm mean, it's Syracuse, fer cryin' out loud! You should always get the Orange.
Also, maybe it's just my eyes, but the design seems to be printed slightly askew, like it's tilted ever-so-slightly to the left. Oh well, no biggie. It fits and it feels awesome!
