I went here to have a burger but on seeing the size felt I couldn't eat one, so my two sons tackled the Burgers and loved every mouth full. I thought I would have a salad! Hahaha! Not what I was expecting again huge portions but delicious, go with a big appetite, you will not be disappointed. The only thing... More

This is a great place for everything but talking! The hostess is awesome - she made us a table for 6 by putting other tables together. The waitress was great - Harley, thank you! The great girl that brought drinks and checked on us at the end of the meal - really likeable!!! The food was awesome! The truffle aioli... More

Had dinner at the Navy Pier location after watching the America's cup. The manager greeted and seated us, very nice guy. Our server was very nice also, and we sat outside on a beautiful day. I had the chili rubbed blue cheese burger and asked for some jalapenos on the side--nice and spicy! We also got the parmesan truffle fries... More

Went on a slow night. There was about 6 tables sat. But somehow it took 15 minutes just to be greeted. Drinks took forever and they were out of about half of their beer. Our burgers came out on small side dish plates. They tasted good, but service was so bad that everyone at our table was just frustrated. Not... More

I lived in Chicago for 3 years and Im a total foodie, I love exploring and going to different restaurants. The BEST burger I've had in Chicago is in DMK hands down. Ive only been to the DMK in lakeview so i'm not sure if the quality is different in the other restaurants. I recommend the Aged Cheddar, Smoked Bacon,... More

My boyfriend, his brother, and I decided to grab some dinner after an afternoon of drinking and gaming. His brother recommended this place and I'm so glad he did! I got the truffle macaroni and cheese, we shared the sweet potato fries with lemon tobasco aoli, and my drink of choice was the pineapple basil. We also shared their chili... More

We really enjoyed this little burger bar. My husband ordered the clam chowder. It was thick, creamy and delicious. I had the crabby patty. It was also very good. The portion sizes were good, but sides don't come with the sandwiches. What really made this place memorable was the staff. We had the pleasure of sitting at the bar with... More

First of all let me tell you I'm not a burger person. However, last summer I was near Wrigley Field so because it was on Drivers, Diners & Dives I thought I'd try it! It was fabulous! I ordered the Bison burger with Goat Cheese and the house fries. Amazing! I told my husband about it because I couldn't believe... More

We ate lunch at the DMK Burger Bar at Navy Pier. I picked it because I heard it had been on The Sandwich King and Diners, Dives and Drive Ins. And we wanted something close to the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. We were disappointed in the food, the tastes, and the cost. I ordered a single burger with cheese and bacon-$11... More

My 26 year old daughter and I grabbed lunch here and while the burgers were pretty good, for a burger place, I expected more. They were "fine", just not as good as I would have hoped. The decor is quite cool (hipster?) and there was a varied wine and beer selection as well and the wait staff was attentive. A... More
