The next eatery on the list for Tempting Palates was Chuck Wagon 175. It’s located north of Adelaide on 175 O’Connell St, North Adelaide. This outing was so casual and very relaxed.
As I entered I couldn’t help but notice the ‘Wall of Fame’ board. Apparently these victors took on the man v food challenge of eating a a 6 patty burger (with bacon, cheese and salad) and a side of fries in 20 minutes!
This is the aforementioned infamous burger:
Those that couldn’t cut the mustard took pride of place on the ‘Wall of Shame’ board.
All I can say is good on you for taking on the challenge. Not so sure your arteries would have felt the same way …
The burger challenge still exists today. And there’s also a Chilli Wing challenge.

Anyways, we did notice that the ‘Something a bit special’ had sold out. It would have been an interesting alternative to what I eventually ordered.
Almost all of us ordered the Fries (Crispy shoestring fries tossed with tex-mex signature seasoning):
I think we could have gotten away with sharing a few. I could not finish my side of fries – there was a whole lotta fries in that bowl. But they were soooooo tasty!
The Sangria well down nicely :)
Other side dishes ordered were –
Buffalo hot wings (Chicken wingettes deep fried and tossed in Frank’s special hot sauce served traditional with celery and blue cheese sauce):
Chilli cheese fries (Crispy shoestring fries topped with beef and bean chilli con carne and melted cheddar cheese sauce):
Then we ordered the mains –
The Piglet (slow roasted pulled pork butt simmered in chuck wagon signature sauce on a soft toasted bun):
The Green Machine (160g chuck, smashed avocado, bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion and garlic aioli on a toasted bun):
This was the burger that I ordered. I loved it especially the burger pattie – very different to what you would get at McDonald’s or Hungry Jacks – it was packed full of flavour.
The Chuck (160g chuck with lettuce, tomatoes, onion and garlic aioli on a toasted bun):
The Chuck with cheese ((160g chuck with lettuce, tomatoes, onion and garlic aioli with added cheddar cheese on a toasted bun):
If it’s American street food that you’re after then Chuck Wagon 175 is your place. It’s a good little spot with friendly staff and tasty food. I dare you to take the challenge … ;)
