We went to DMK Burger Bar under the recommendation of a friend. "It's the best burger," she said. "Yeah, yeah," I thought. I will never doubt her again. It WAS the BEST BURGER I have ever eaten. And I pine for another one (living 90 miles away doesn't make that an easy desire to fulfill). The beef is soooo tender,... More

We were running late for a show at The Vic, and our server was attentive to our plight. We literally had to shovel the food into our mouths, which was not difficult because the burgers were incredibly flavorful. I wish I could have savored the taste longer, so we made a pact to go back asap. I had the #1... More

First off, the hamburgers here are terrific, with an extensive menu catering to all tastes. Second, the beer list is not long but offers something to please every beverage lover. Third, the mac and cheese appetizer is outstanding, along with the deviled egg appetizer and the parmesan-dusted french fries. Fourth, service is fast and friendly. Fifth, prices are reasonable and... More

DMK Burger Bar is just as advertised. It's just a "Burger Bar", but just so much more as well. Great variety(lamb,turkey even veggie), great value and great food preparation. Killer fries w/parmesan cheese and truffle. Sounds frou-frou, but it's very not... Place is unpretentious, staff is professional and knowledgeable. Large selection of craft beers and a nice DePaul area location.... More

I've read mixed reviews about DMK, but this is definitely one of my favorite places to eat in Chicago. Here is what people complain about: - the wait is too long - for the price, there's not much burger First of all, the wait is long because it's good and people like eating there! The place is always packed when... More

The food is absolutely amazing! I went with a group of 5 guys on a Saturday night, we waited for about 50 mins before a table was ready. Its a small place so be prepared to wait for a table if you have more than 2 to 3 people in your group. They do have a good selection of craft... More

Second time in Chicago and still absurdly in love with DMK's burgers! Frankly all the burgers are great but they do the best Veggie Burger I've ever had - it's incredible. I'll be squeezing in a 2nd and a 3rd visit before I leave Chicago again!

If you think this is a great burger, then I just don't understand what your level of quality burgers are. Do you think McDonalds has great burgers, well they are better than the ones at DMK. I had the overpriced Bison burger. Man, what a disappointment. First off the patties are paper thin, go to any bar in this city... More

Like many other reviewers, I must agree...the burgers are delicious! So many unique flavor combinations & texture variations, it was hard to choose. I got the Bison burger and it was very different and tasty. The burgers we had (9 of us) were hot, delicious and for us females, large enough in size that several got "to go" bags. The... More

The title of my review really says it all. Between seeing this place on Triple D and all the rave Trip Advisor comments, I had high expectations. They were not met. I had the bison burger with goat cheese, pickled red onions and blueberry BBQ. The party was pressed too thin to be cook any less that medium well and... More
