Very Dark & weird

first off so dark can't even see the menu to read it!! Might want to invest in lighting or maybe your hiding something that's why you keep it so dark! Burgers where good but have had better hand crafted sodas are great! Serve is slow! Don't think I would rush back..

Everyone kept saying this is the place for burgers. Finally went. Outstanding! Meat. Buns. Service. I had the lamb burger. Very flavorful. Tasty onion strings. Homemade vanilla ginger soda. Excellent service.

Always swing by DMK when I am in Chicago. Has never disappointed. Shakes and sweet potatoe fries are a must to accompany these great burgers. Stopping here is a MUST. (My favorite is the #4, I LOVE an egg on my burger)

We were in the area of Illinois Masonic hospital and used the Food Network app to find this place around the corner. Fantastic little food establishment. I had Burger #4, which has roasted green chilies, a fried egg, BACON on a homemade bun. Fantastic. My daughter had the Mac & Cheese #1, aged cheddar with a parmesan crust, and an... More

Just a great burger, so very tasty. They seem hand pressed, and the hamburger buns..they were perfect for holding everything together. I had the #4, green chilis (held the egg though) and it was delicious! Brother had the #3 with pastrami and said it was one of the best burgers he's ever had. The fries were perfectly done..

My wife and I recently stayed 5 nights in Chicago and this place was high on our list of must do's. We had actually saw this place on a television show called Diners, Drive In's and Dives. From the moment we saw the program, it was a must do, so we did! We arrived on a Wednesday in the early... More

First time to DMK and we really enjoyed the entire experience. The service was excellent and food extremely tasty. The atmosphere was fun. We had stopped in on Monday evening and the restaurant was busy. The manager came by several time to ensure that we had everything we needed. And our server was very knowledgeable. Would definitely come back next... More

We've been to DMK a couple of times now, all for lunch, no disappointments yet! Menu is great and has something for everyone. Turkey burger is delish! Bison Burger and #4, Hatch chilies and fried egg are also favorites. Fries are tasty and come in a variety of flavors. One basket is good for a table of 4.

Great bar. Tables are a little close so I sometimes felt like I was in other people's conversations. Our server was great and the food was delicious. I got the bison burger and truffle fries which no one can argue with. You'll be plenty full. My boyfriend got the Patty Melt and that was also full of flavor. It's a... More
