Well this is one is worth the 5 stars, definitely a huge menu that you just don't know what to ask. Big, delicious burgers, go get one!

Where do I even begin with this place. The burgers are as fresh as it gets, the selection is top notch, oh…. And the drinks… perfection. This place is certainly not your run of the mill burger joint. Funky atmosphere, great location tucked away in Lakeview. I live in the neighborhood and frequent this place a lot, certainly worth checking... More

This is a good burger joint. VERY loud, definitely not an atmosphere to have a date. I was excited about trying burgers made out of "grass fed" beef. They were ok but to me didn't taste any different from a regular burger. The only good thing I guess you can add an egg to all the burgers, that was tasty.... More

The burgers are very good, but the fries definetly need good toppings. They have several options for toppings, highly recommend getting some as the fries by themselves are nothing special. Overall all though very good place for a burger and a few beers.

After seeing the parmesan truffle cream fries on diners, dives and drive ins we had been wanting to taste the magic of this amazing Parmesan cream sauce and the legendary experience at DMK burger bar. If you are in the mood for a lively environment, with cozy tables set up in this neighborhood joint this is the perfect place for... More

We had heard the Good reviews so we're expecting big things. Perhaps we expected too much. It's a specialist burger bar so I expected an amazing burger but it was just pretty average.

Traveled from downtown Chicago to eat these tasty burgers. Service was quick and the burgers were thinner than the slabs of meat at other places (a good thing). I like what I had and what my friend ordered, but I still have a few other places that top it. Considering how quickly we sat down and the uniqueness of it... More

We loved everything about DMK… our server, Max, with his Johnny Cash voice, the yummy grilled cheese and Mac N Cheese (cheese makes everything great!) Also, when I accidentally spilled my own glass of wine, it was quickly replaced without charge!

I ENJOY A WELL MADE BURGER almost anytime. "Yes Hard Rock serves burgers but if you want something amazingly different, you should make your way to any of the DMK Burger Bars, or Kuma's I was advised during my stay at the hotel. Needless to say before we left Chicago, we did so. It was about a 10 minute drive... More

This is a pretty cool place serving really good burgers. We arrived about 6.30pm on a Saturday evening and had a slight wait before a table was available. I ordered a No.2 burger and my girlfriend had a No.1 burger – both were really tasty. We shared a large side of sweet potato fries which were delicious! There is an... More
