YUM

The food is plated a little strange but its so good! Not even sure what kind of burger I had but it was amazing! Try a milkshake with whiskey, I've never had anything like that before and it was also amazing. Would definitely recommend.

My 26 year old daughter and I grabbed lunch here and while the burgers were pretty good, for a burger place, I expected more. They were "fine", just not as good as I would have hoped. The decor is quite cool (hipster?) and there was a varied wine and beer selection as well and the wait staff was attentive. A... More

I had the number one as a double patty, which is recommend against, the second party takes away from the balance of flavours. It could also use more bacon. I also got the Parmesan fries, they were amazing! Price was ok, service ok, would go again but not much of a place to seek out as a tourist.

We went here after seeing triple D episode over the holidays. Party of 6, Monday evening (around 6:30pm). We were seated right away, no wait, which was great. We ordered parmesan truffle and sweet potato fries to start and each of us had a burger. I really liked number 6 (as in the picture). It was very juicy, grass fed... More

We had an excellent meal at DMK. The burgers are huge, so we had the deviled eggs and split a burger and fries. It was plenty of food, I was stuffed! They also have a great cocktail and beer list and are in a busy area with lots to do.

This was probably one of the best burgers I have ever tasted. Loaded with flavor, juicy patties, and cooked perfectly. And the portion size is excellent! On top of that, the service was outstanding, there was an excellent drink selection, and prices weren't even that bad. What a great find in the heart of Chicago!

DMK is a small little restaurant tucked away in the Lakeview neighborhood in Chicago. They are known for their burgers so that's what we came for. I had the #1 which was absolutely delicious, tender beef with great fixings. My daughter had the bison burger which she had never eaten before, and she said it tasted great as well. We... More

We ate at the Navy Pier location with our kids. We started off with a couple of drinks and ordered the blue cheese/bacon fries and the parmesan truffle fries. Hand made fries topped with yummy goodness. My picky son even tried the blue cheese/bacon fries, and said he would eat those again. We tried the chorizo burger, portobello burger, and... More

Had lunch at the Navy Pier location today . Our son ordered the bison burger but after a couple bites he didn't like it. We told him just to eat the fries [which are amazing] and help his little brother eat his cheeseburger. The waiter noticed the uneaten burger, whisked it away and told us we would not be charged...

Had this place recommended and it was a lot of fun. Very loud with people and music which matches this area of Chicago. Had a bison burger and mac and cheese which were excellent. Nice server and good drink menu also. Be prepared to wait but worth it.
