Best burger in Chicago. Excellent beer and whisky on tap. You can sit at the bar instead of waiting for a table.

Simply the best burgers in town and with a good beer selection, you may need to make a line but its worth it. Try the Kumas burger

So my daughter who lives near Humboldt Park suggested we go here when my wife and I recently visited her in Chicago. She told us they had good burgers and tons of beer choices but there'd be a wait. We arrived around 525pm this past Saturday and sure enough there was an hour wait for our party of 4. The... More

I went with my wife to Kuma's expecting to have a wonderful experience. We thought the hamburgers would be great. I have been postponing to go for one or another reason... even if I live few blocks from the restaurant. The ambiance was great and the music fantastic... I love rock,metal, punk etc... The beers were very good. The burgers... More

Always, always, always make sure I stop at Kumas while in Chicago. The food is excellent, the bar staff couldn't be better and I always meet cool people there. Great jams, great food, great people....

So I was introduced to Kuma's by a friend. If you visit the original store at 2900 W Belmont Ave it can be very off putting. It is very small and it looks like a goth/heavymetal/biker bar. The reality is it is everything. This place has the absolute best burgers you will ever eat. The meat is cooked how you... More

Many of the low-rated reviews here are posted by out of towners who don't realize this is primarily a BAR (in the busy city of Chicago, mind you) that also serves burgers. If you want the restaurant experience with a toned down bar atmosphere, try the close-by Kuma's Too or the one they just opened in Schaumburg. My wife and... More

My husband has been begging me to try this place for MONTHS after reading they were voted one of the "best burgers in Chicago" so I finally gave in. It was certainly an experience lol. The burgers are good, don't get me wrong, but I'd hardly consider them to be one of the best in Chicago. It did have that... More
