We visited DMK on our quest for the Triple D checklist. We walked to the burger bar from Wrigley Field after a Cubs game on a Saturday night. If going on a weekend night we would advise sitting at the bar to get the fastest service. We had great seats at the bar with attentive and friendly bartenders taking our... More

The chorizo burger is definitely my recommendation. The fresh baked buns are not your typical hamburger bun- much better. The added guacamole really compliments this burger. Had an order of the fried onion strips too. Battered lightly and great seasoning served with homemade ketchup. Nice selection of beer. We were there on a Monday around noon, plenty of seating and...

This restaurant was a highlight of our trip to Chicago. My husband and I stopped in for dinner after the Cubs game on aFriday night. it was an easy walk from the redline/Belmont area. We sat at the bar and enjoyed our bartenders. It was a very popular place and busy. It did get noisy, but it was festive noisy.... More

This is my go to place for burgers in my neighborhood. They have a great menu with variety. As a lunch spot its great. Also, for any week night it makes a nice date spot. For weekends, you should have earplugs.

I met up with some of my old friends at DMK while I was visiting Chicago. The food was good and they had lots of types of burgers to choose from. The service was also great. The building was interesting, but it was a terrible choice to catch up with people. We could barely hear one another (we're all in... More

DMK is my husband's favorite restaurant. Amazing burgers, fries and beer, every time. We've eaten here again and again and will continue to do so.

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!
