My husband and I drive a hour and a half to get a Kuma's burger a few times a year. You will end up waiting quite awhile for a table, but it is well worth it. While you are waiting, try one of their many micro brews.

It took us more than an hour to get seated, and we got there around 3pm. The place is small, but the burgers and beer selection wore well worth the wait

Me and my wife saw this place on TV and decided to make a road trip. It was well worth it! I had the Pantera burger and it was amazing! The prices are good and the service is excellent! I highly recommend this place!

Food is fine. I mean okay. There is no reason on God's green earth why anyone should wait for two hours for a burger. Especially when the music blasting is old Def Leppard and Van Halen. Maybe AC/DC if your lucky. The waffle fries are previously frozen(shudders). Not for a two hour wait.

Kuma's is a landmark in my food history- pretzel buns, damn good sauce, and of course the smoky, loud atmosphere. This place is worth the wait and definitely bring your appetite. Also their beer selection has got the best stuff brewed in the greater Chicago area.

My 30 year old son raves about this burger joint so for his Birthday this January he picked this place for us to take him and his wife. I must admit that I was also curious about trying this place but because we live in the Northern Suburbs from Chicago depending on the time of day it could be at... More

Went here for lunch and had the original kuma burger with the fried egg on top. The burger was cooked perfectly and the staff was very helpful in finding the right beer for me, as the list is quite large. I don't know if it was the best burger I've ever had, but was really good. I'm no metal music... More

This is truly a one of a kind dive bar. And I say that with love. Slammin' heavy metal music at high volume; a lot of ink on the staff; bourbon on tap; Jameson's on tap; a crowd that runs from suits to piercings, tats to too cool for school. Burgers named after heavy metal bands. Often there is a... More

Let me start by saying that anyone who eats here should understand that the music is part of the ambience, and those who work there don't care whether or not you like the music. That being said the food is fabulous. I had the neurosis burger as did my husband and friend. So good. My friends husband had the macaroni... More
