Did not really care for this place. Looks like they have a good beer selection but did not try any. Burger was just ok portillos burger is probably better. I ordered mine medium and I it came medium rare. I should of sent it back to get cooked more but I was too hungry and couldn't wait any longer.

Needed a place in the area to grab a quick bite. Food and service were great. Had the Greek burger with sweet potato fries. Full of flavors!

I visited in the middle of a unexpected heatwave at Easter. I was on route to the Steppenwolf and following a long walk, across many districts - needed somewhere quick with air conditioning before I made way to see the play Linda Vista. And this fitted the bill, perfectly. Shortly after we were shown our seats, ice cold water was... More

Stopped in with friends. The decor and staff were great. The service was efficient and polite. As for food it was a mixed bag. The burgers would be good if not overwhelmed by the bun. Just too much bread. The mac and cheese is a winner as are the wings. The fried pickles are top notch. I wish the burgers... More

It's so much fun to make your own burger at the Burger Bar Chicago at 1578 North Clybourn Avenue or any of the restaurant's other three locations at 1150 South Michigan, 2954 South Sheffield or 844 West Randolph. Sure, you can order one of eight "stackers" on the menu. The Hot & Smokey, a BBQ beef burger with smoked pulled... More

Four of us stopped in after a show at McCormick Place. The atmosphere is hip, the bar is big and there are plenty of tables for larger groups. We had burgers and the poutine and everything was tasty and the price was reasonable; $50 for two which included a couple of beers. The table next to us had the shakes... More

This place is great for burger eating and beer swilling foodies. It is also great for peops who can't handle gluten and/or meat. The atmosphere was warm and cosy and there was lots of tables to seat plenty of guests. Sport is shown on the screens but if you don't like that, its so easy to avoid them. The menu... More

Went there with my wife, We just picked the place at random because we were hungry, but we were pleasantly surprised. I had the turducken burger (a holdover from the Thanksgiving special) and it was phenomenal. My wife just had their basic cheeseburger and it was also great. Both were among the best burgers I have ever tasted. All teh... More

Went with my wife and daughter. I ordered the grass fed hamburger and hand cut fries. The burger was rare and I had ordered medium rare. The food took a long time to arrive and was pretty cold.

Been here twice. Had a grass fed burger that was awesome! Fried pickles are a must and the Santa Fe salad was also very good.
