Excellent Lunch Find

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!

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

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

My partner and I ate here on our first night in Chicago. The place is very simply decorated but offers very tasty burgers with side dishes - we chose sweet potato fries which were really good. Service was good and a great range of drinks especially local beer. Would definitely return if I am ever in Chicago again.

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. Our family of 5 each tried a different burger and everyone was well satisfied. I really enjoyed the sea salt & black pepper fries. Grass fed beef! You can taste the difference.

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

I searched tripadvisor "before I go to chicago" for the top burger joints in chicago, I had several choices but am glad I choose DMK. the atmosphere is great, the service is fast and efficient and most of all the Burger was mouth watering and tasty "loved the Buns". try the "BIG DMK" it is delicious :)
