Finally made it to Kuma's Corner to try a burger - was the best burger I can remember, period! Kuma's is known as a 'heavy metal bar,' and it definitely is. But it's not just a heavy metal crowd, so you know lots of people are there for the food. I wasn't sure what to expect, but the food and... More

I had probably the best burger I have ever had at Kuma's Corner (definitely top 2) and I have had a lot of burgers. I ordered the special "Burger of the Month" - the Carcass [10 oz beef patty, bacon fat aioli, shredded steak, muenster cheese, deep-fried beer battered bacon, drizzled with sweet srirachi glaze]. It was definitely a heavy... More

This is a screamingly loud death metal bar, however, you won't care because the burger is soo good. Amazing quality meat, scrumptious fries and a great beer list. A must go in Chicago

I believe this is the Avondale neighborhood, but a trendy spot right on the corner. First from the street not much curb appeal. Second parking in this neighborhood kinda stinks. Most importantly the FOOD is worth the trip and hassle. Burgers are big, and tasty. Fires are excellent, they make their own Giardiniera Ketchup..hmm hmm its good. Atmosphere is trendy,... More

I don't think there is one negative to this place. First off the atmosphere is awesome! Along with the heavy metal that is playing. If you don't like that type of music don't worry the food is well worth it. We tried the fried pickles which were probably some of the best that we ever had. The burgers were awesome,... More

We have been going to Kumas Corner for the last 6 years! It is a MUST stop every time we are in Chicago! This month (August) I decided to order the BOTM (Burger of the Month)... Leviathan. How could you go wrong with Shrimp, Apple wood Smoked Bacon, Brie Cheese, sweet chili Dijon, Paprika Aioli, and Parsley. It was amazing... More

It is a long wait for the food. But when it does come it is great!! I would eat here anytime again again when I lived in the neighborhood. I was just back a few month ago and I had a burger and a bloodymary. Both were excellent!!

We were in town for the Ghost concert and found out that Kuma's corner had a delicious burger named after the band. If you are into metal music, it's a must do! The Vibe is very cool, great food and service.

Stopped in for lunch based on a TV show rating the best burgers in America. Was not disappointed. The burger menu is extensive, although some of them got a little weird. I had trouble finding a regular cheeseburger that wasn't topped with jalapenos, a fried egg, or something else. Not a bad thing. The menu is definitely for the adventurous.... More

This is an awesome place. GREAT BURGERS and EQUALLY GREAT MAC & CHEESE. Love the beer selection too. I have not tried any other food there, but I am sure it is great. They have a chef that cares about what they serve. Even if your not into it, don't let the heavy metal and whiskey on tap sway you... More
