Best place we found in Avondale. Great selection of beers on tap, including the wonderful local Revolution brews. Also a great choice of fresh hamburgers - very good, although our French fries & chips weren't freshly made. Staff all very goth, very friendly & helpful. Especially good if you're into heavy metal - and loud heavy metal! I tell you,... More

This place knows how to make a great hamburger. It's not necessarily kid friendly because of the music they play and the surrounding environment. That being said, it is a solid food experience and I would go there again for a different burger.

Got into Chicago late and our host recommended this place. Amazing! Excellent beer selection, burgers are all built quite cleverly with different toppings, but the true greatness is the burger itself. Seasoned perfectly and cooked to temp. And as a side note, probably the best hand cut fries we've ever had

This is a fun spot. Whiskey on tap, great beer choices, metal music (which is surprisingly tolerable) and great food. The burgers are very unique, I don't think you can go wrong with any of them. And the Mac n Cheese is so great. You won't be disappointed in the spot.

Read about Kuma's online as THE place to go for a great burger in Chicago. They didn't disappoint. I hadn't read about the atmosphere of the place, but it was very interesting, very heavy metal, and loved the entire theme of the restaurant. I am not a huge heavy metal fan, BUT the music was not overpowering. The service was... More

We found this place recommended by tons of people and decided to check it out on our trip to Chicago. To start let's just say this place is always packed. Busy all the time no matter what day or time. We came here twice, one time on a Saturday and once on a Sunday. Both times we had to wait... More

Great burger, great look, awesome servers. Only complaint, music was TOO LOW while I was there, but "Natural Born Killers" was on the big screen and that made up. This is a metal bar - CRANK IT!!!!

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
