Smoky and Heavy Metal

We knew this wasn't going to be a Michelin Star restaurant, and were excited to try a burger after seeing this place reviewed on one of the food channels. We dined on a Saturday around 11:45 and got the only available table. The place was so smokey my eyes burned the entire time. Clearly there was... read more

A good friend of mine has been trying to get me to this place for a year, but it never worked out until last night. I like burgers but it is hard to really Wow me with one. Kuma's totally Wow'ed me. It is a small place but the atmosphere is that of a rock bar. The music is loud... More

The best (and heaviest) burger I have ever had during my 2 month in Illinois. The place may be not very suitable for a romantic dinner, but the heavy metal music and the food are just awesome. A must to do in Chicago. It is possible to choose the meat (they have buffalo too) and the bread. The only problem... More

Brought my friend here - he hadn't been! He was salivating over dishes being brought out to the loud heavy-metal tunes by the pierced and tattooed waitresses: humongous burgers with varied toppings and piles of hand-cut fries. Mine had venison, horseradish sauce and something else on top of the 10 ounce burger and under the wonderful pretzel bun. Great beer... More

Went there on a whim with a girlfriend of mine. It was a bit late for lunch and too early for dinner, so a table was no problem. The place is loud, I guess I should say that straight away. Music is jammin' . . . so if you want quiet, this ain't the place to go. Our waitress was... More

I like thus place. Bar atmosphere,good service. A nice burger, but not great. Their thing is all a about the toppings and presentation which is all great. But for me the most important part is the meat. Don't get me wrong there use good beef, just not great beef. I would go back,but not my favorite.

The atmosphere is incredible. The restaurant encourages it's employees to literally BE THEMSELVES. Tattoos, rock music, piercings all helped the unique dynamic of this establishment. Stereotypically people look down on those who are different but I can assure you that I received the BEST SERVICE I've ever had at a restaurant. My drink never made it below half full! The... More

So my review is based on my last experience, of which was similar to my previous. I've been to Kuma's enough times to know when the time to get there is. I've dealt with one particular rude bartender on numerous occasions. We've dealt with no A/C when it was 95 degrees outside. But we still come back. The burgers are... More

Had to order from Kuma's but was not going to have time to eat there. Ordered for the friends I had over for a party, unbelievable burgers and the fries were perfect. I had to wait an hour before I could pick them up. So plan ahead if doing pickup.
