I heard over and over how great DMK burgers were. Well, they are OK. When the noise is so loud you cannot speak with your friends, it is difficult to enjoy your dinner. The service a average, the fries were strange and their wine by the glass is overpriced. Overall, there are better, more enjoyable places.

This place has great food and great service. The burgers are just the right size. You have to order the sides separately, garlic fries is a must.

DMK Burger Bar was featured on the Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins And Dives, and for good reason. These aren't your ordinary burgers. With so many appetizing choices, I decided on Number 5, the bison burger. The fresh goat cheese and pickled red onions really added a lot, but honestly I could not tell the difference between bison and regular hamburger,... More

These burgers are fantastic. Worth the wait. Our table ordered burgers, salmon burger and patty melt. Everyone said they were fantastic. Loved the Parmesan truffle fries! The staff was friendly, efficient but busy. Figuring out how to come back here again!

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
