THE Best Mac & Cheese, Great Beer

I loved this place - I'm a mac and cheese aficionado and don't like burgers at all, so imagine my excitement when I realized this was on the menu! You can build your own mac and cheese, but I stuck with the classic style and added peas. It was DELICIOUS. Everyone said their burgers were great... read more

If you're on the way to find a special burger experience, go directly to Kuma's Corner. A typical local bar with such nice burgers. Especially with the delicious bretzel brioche bun. I would recommend this place for everyone.

This place has a killer atmosphere, fantastic service, and above all, PERFECT BURGERS. We rode 2 trains and walked 8 blocks to get here, and it was completely worth it. I had the Black Sabbath burger with a side salad, and EVERYTHING was perfect.

A buddy and I went on a Friday for lunch. There will be a line to get in, and we ended up sitting at the bar instead of waiting for a table. Our server was very knowledgeable about the beers available, both on tap and bottled. My friend had the make your own mac and cheese while I had the... More

I never know what to order when I come here; it's all so good! It's usually crowded, but when you taste the burger you'll know why. One day I hope to try them all, but I usually need a few days recovery after indulging here! Goatsnake and the Iron Maiden are 2 of my favorite burgers. They seem a little... More

We had to get on the El, then take a bus to get to Kumas, and I was wondering whether it would be worth the hassle when I saw the smoke and then caught a whiff of the most amazing smells. It was absolutely worth all the effort to get there and more! Burgers cooked to request with the most... More

I was recommended by a local and he wasn't wrong...at all!! I ordered the goat burguer and quality,flavour,portion and presentation were fantastic,probably one of the best in the city. Not expensive check and kind staff. Don't freak out,the music is so loud. I would recommend this restaurant

I had friends from out of town in during the week and we decided at the last minute to go out for burgers. This place had been on my bucket list for a while and it certainly did not disappoint. My friend from NC said it was "Life Changing". My friend from CA said she can still smell these burgers... More
