Not necessarily the perfect place to have a quiet conversation, but if you don't mind cozy quarters and some pumping music, try them out.

Went there a few times during our visit to Chicago. Had the Bison, Lamb and Veggie burgers. All were some of the best I have ever had. This Chicago neighborhood is blessed with so many small, great restaurants, but this is one of the best. Agree with other reviews about the loud music, but I can put up with noise... More

Music was too loud but food really good. Hamburgers were delicious! I would recommend to friends. In a good area of Chicago.

We went to the Lakeview location on Sheffield. Greeting was quick and friendly, and service throughout our visit carried though on speed and friendly courtesy. They basically do one thing here - burgers - and practice makes perfect. The grass-fed beef really makes a difference. Our burgers were flavorful and moist, with the toppings and condiments just right. The buns... More

We wanted to go to a different place, but they were closed for lunch. We went around and found the DMK. The burgers are amazing and would definitely come again, especially for their sweet potato fries.

Stopped by for a bite to eat following a play on Navy Pier. DMK on Sheffield has a club feel to it with close tables and a very loud atmosphere. If you're interested in a meaningful conversation with someone - this is not the venue. If you're looking for a tasty burger and beer - pull up a seat. The... More

I LOVE their turkey burger...it's sooo moist and delicious!! Their bartender also makes the best dirty martini...slivers of ice, perfect blue cheese stuffed olives. Their other burgers, specials are so good and it's just a really cool place. It is loud/echoy...kind of club like but very cool place. Might be a cool place for a date if you're going for... More

My daughter and I each had the Bison Burger with goat cheese and blueberry ketchup and it was flavorful and juicy....cooked perfectly! Sometimes bison burgers are a little dry because the have less fat (but good Omega-3s) but not these! Honestly they were so huge we could have shared one. We shared the fries with truffled cream sauce. Yum! My... More
