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.

With so many burgers to choose from, Back Alley delivers great tasting All-American burgers. You can tell that care was added to all of the entries since the owners are local and devoted to a great final product. Clean and fresh looking restaurant.

This is a quintessential burger and fries place - if that means you can get your burger 100 different ways (maybe I'm exaggerating). The chicken is so juicy and char-broiled - a great alternative for the white meat lovers like me. The fries are hand cut and crispy. Great for a Saturday lunch!

We went here after read the good reviews on tripadvisor. 5 stars is definitively too much. Burgers were quite good but we had better in other places. Too much oil and the taste wasn't enough for our expectations.

I ve taken a mexicali burger, I would like to have some guacamole and jalapeño but neither guacamole nor jalapeño were in my burger. Anyway, burger was not bad, not at all but there are other places whrpere you can eat better burger for less money.

I had the mushroom burger with swiss cheese and horseradish sauce. Best burger I've had in a long time. They have a good beer selection also. I will definitely be back!
