Best Burgers in Chicago

I've consumed many burgers in my life and these guys are way up there on the list. Being a metalhead myself it was a pleasant surprise to find such an awesome place hiding out in the burbs of the Windy City!

The hamburger was huge. Do not order an appetizer if you are going get a burger. The pretzel bun made it an above average burger. It was good for a hamburger. The downside was all the smoke in there because they cook everything just of to the side of the bar.

I've been hearing about how good Kuma's is for ages and finally had a chance to try it out for myself, I was not disappointed. I loved the place, it is just the kind of grungy rocker's spot that I gravitate towards, perfect kind of burger joint. They are always busy, but we were lucky and only waited for about... More

My 1st visit here and I enjoyed the food. The atmosphere is very, very, very casual and if you don't like rock music this is not the place for you. It was a bad Monday for the establishment with the POS not working properly which, prevented us from ordering any of their beers or other beverages which included alcohol. AND... More

I ordered the Neurosis & to be Straight Up it is a Huge Perfect Burger. My brother got the Metallica and it Too was Huge and Amazingly Tasteful. I found the Tiny Straws a bit Odd, and it is EXTREMELY Smoky in the Seating Areas – they really should work on cutting that back. But I love the Tiny but... More

We're not into heavy metal music or Jack Daniels on tap or small label whiskeys or craft beers but we'll never turn down a good hamburger. So it figured that, sooner or later, we'd find our way to Kuma's Corner at 2900 West Belmont Avenue, at the corner of Belmont and Francisco, in Chicago's Avondale neighborhood. Opened in 2005, they... More

If you are in Chicago and in search of a great gourmet burger, this is the place for you. We enjoyed a beautiful late summer afternoon outside at this cool place. We had an amazing server and the atmosphere was top notch. The menu is a burger lovers dream. With cool names like the Slayer, Metallica amd Pantera you know... More

This is a rock and roll metal bar with Jack Daniels on tap. It is definitely a hipster joint but the burgers are insane and the sides are rediculous! A must go if you love burgers!

Food and beer at Kumars was brilliant. Friendly and welcoming place and the pulled pork was excellent too. Only thing for me was the heavy metal music was very heavy and probably exactly what the owners want. We only went once though despite it being the only nice place we found in walking distance of our apartment.

All expectations for this place were exceeded! Atmosphere, service, food quality etc. This was literally a top 3 burger experience of a lifetime. I had the High on Fire and my wife had the YOB. Both were absolutely amazing! I was pretty bummed they were sold out of every single XL mens T-shirts, though... Get there early. By noon on... More
