Great burgers and beer in lake view!

Never disappointed when I visit DMK. It is a must visit when in Lake View. I recommend the turkey burger and Parmesan truffle fries. They also have tons of great beer available and usually a special burger of the month.

I have been there for my second time. The Burger& fries are delicious, u should try the sweet potatoe fries. Sometimes u must for a free seat but this is ok. I highly recommend a visit @DMK Burgers. The best way to get there is the brown or purple line and leave the CTA at Wellington station.

We went for lunch on a sunday with our teenage son. The grass fed burgers were delish! The other offerings included a veggie burger or bison at no additional charge. Fries were tasty and crisp. I enjoyed a ginger pineapple soda and my son liked his peanutbutter shake. Dining is casual and tables fairly close together. Families with babies, college... More

first off so dark can't even see the menu to read it!! Might want to invest in lighting or maybe your hiding something that's why you keep it so dark! Burgers where good but have had better hand crafted sodas are great! Serve is slow! Don't think I would rush back..

Always swing by DMK when I am in Chicago. Has never disappointed. Shakes and sweet potatoe fries are a must to accompany these great burgers. Stopping here is a MUST. (My favorite is the #4, I LOVE an egg on my burger)

We were in the area of Illinois Masonic hospital and used the Food Network app to find this place around the corner. Fantastic little food establishment. I had Burger #4, which has roasted green chilies, a fried egg, BACON on a homemade bun. Fantastic. My daughter had the Mac & Cheese #1, aged cheddar with a parmesan crust, and an... More

Just a great burger, so very tasty. They seem hand pressed, and the hamburger buns..they were perfect for holding everything together. I had the #4, green chilis (held the egg though) and it was delicious! Brother had the #3 with pastrami and said it was one of the best burgers he's ever had. The fries were perfectly done.. If youre... More

My wife and I recently stayed 5 nights in Chicago and this place was high on our list of must do's. We had actually saw this place on a television show called Diners, Drive In's and Dives. From the moment we saw the program, it was a must do, so we did! We arrived on a Wednesday in the early... More
