Quality burgers, fun menu, retro vibe

Near the train in the heart of downtown LaGrange they serve really fresh burgers with all sorts of fun add-ons, great desserts, an array of beverages all in a post-modern diner served by a friendly staff. Really kid friendly.

Some really interesting burgers from classic to olive burgers. The fries are excellent, both regular and sweet potato.

This is a great place to grab a burger if you're in the La Grange area. I love the option of creating your own burger the way you want it. With that I created the perfect burger for myself, and my spouse did the same! If you are not really feeling a burger at the time they do offer great... More

This is our local go-to burger place. Delicious burgers and fries, fast and friendly service and fun atmosphere. And the bonus: a very good selection of craft beers to wash it all down with. Keep up the good work - love the new and more spacious location.

Go to Back Alley Burger if you want a good grass-fed beef burger. There are many to choose from. I have yet to try a burger I didn't like.

My husband and I stopped in while house hunting, for lunch and we're happy we did! Great open, family friendly atmosphere and delicious food at reasonable prices. Great find!

Burgers are fantastic, and the salads are good too. Kids love the shakes! Wish there were more parking- in good weather its fine, but sometimes hard to get a spot

We were in LaGrange by chance and found this restaurant appealing and fortunately we had a good appetite. The people were friendly and the choices were so numerous it took us a while to read through them. Wanted to have one of each, but that was not possible. I had a Back Alley Burger and my husband had the BLT.... More

After Trader Joe's my husband and I stopped here before we went home. The restaurant is nice and love the wood tones. 20 bucks for 2 burgers and one coke is hardly a good deal. The 'shroom came with no fries, but if you order fries you can ask for more. I have eaten better food and received a better... More

We ended up at this place after we were rained out of the Summer Nights at the Brookfield Zoo on Saturday night. Burgers are a bit pricey, but they are everywhere. Beer and wine prices were pretty good though as well as the fresh fries. The burgers were supposed to be fresh, not frozen, but I have had better at... More
