Bangin' Burgers and Beer!

We finally made it here on a Tuesday night for dinner. We did not have to wait to be seated, but I have heard you can wait up to an hour or more on weekends. They have an outdoor patio as well, but we chose to dine in the main room. It's loud, but not so loud that you cannot... read more

This place is so good. I would like to go back every time I visit Chicago. This place is worth whatever drive you make. You wont leave hungry or disappointed. This burgers are great portions and the fries are well seasoned. The theme of this place is awesome too.

Heard a lot about Kuma so was looking forward to the visit. I have to say it was not as good as I hoped. First, I don't mind the music. I did mind how loud it was though. The waiter couldn't even hear our order and we we yelling at each other to have a conversation. Second, why does it... More

Food here is pretty good. I had the APMD - All Pigs Must Die- Sandwich which is a version of BLT. There are LOTS of bacon on this one. Instead of mayo, they have sriracha aioli which is a nice twist. My cousin went with the Kuma Burger which is a regular burger with bacon and egg and it looked... More

Went on a Saturday, got in line at 11am, they opened a little early for the building crowd, which was nice. It's a cool little bar with some talented burger builders behind the bar. The theme is hard rock/heavy metal music so feel free to come as you are, Orange hair, tattoos, multiple piercings are all welcome. Find your favorite... More

Being a metalhead and the fact I was I Chicago to see a metal concert, this was a required visit. Burgers cooked the way you want. Might want to ask for a to go box and cut burger on half right away. I wanted a lighter side, so I ordered the Caesar salad. Best Caesar salad I have ever had.... More

Awesome. It's a Metal Music themed burger joint. Great burgers, colorful wait staff and loud metal music. My wife arranged for patio seating, eliminating the ambiance....she's crafty that way. Burgers were great, fries too. Do it once, even if for some reason you don't love metal. The food will still make you want to return. If you love metal, you'll... More

This place is very fun. The music is very loud. The cheeseburgers have a different spin to them. Very flavorful meat. Very large portion. Mac and cheese also on the menu but I didn't try it. Variety of beers. Pub type atmosphere. Would definitely go again.

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, too, and they come... 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.
