Meatheads is a burger place similar to Five Guys, but much better. They have a lot of options, the burgers are awesome, and the fries are amazing.

I haven't been here in a while. Cajun fries were very good and portions are large. But my burger was weird. I ordered the California burger. Supposed to be beef and maybe it was, but it was a light brown color and looked quite processed....More

We have eaten at Meat Head's several times during our visits at University of Illinois in ChUrb. This time was no different- excellent food and service. I got the salad with chicken, sooo good. The Italian dressing is superb. Love eating here.

A step up from fast food burgers. Love the thin stacked patties. Not as greasy as Five Guys (although I love them too) and a much wider selection. Son had a burger with pineapple and jalapeño, which I thought was weird but he loved. Other...More

Decent burger and cajun fries were ok. Pricey, like most of the "gourmet" burger joints these days. Nice looking restaurant. I'd give it a whirl to see if you like better than the Guys. It was better than the burgers you get at the arches...More
