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

Loved this place. Will return at every visit to Chicago. Delicious food without the high prices or stuffiness.

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

My boyfriends burger was outstanding, mine on the other hand was all pink on the inside. It looked rare, when I ordered medium. They were very accommodating and made me a whole new burger within 5-10 minutes. Food great when cooked right!! We got the fried pickles (best we've ever had)!!

Unique burgers not found anywhere else. Loud rocking atmosphere. Servers and kitchen staff always hustling to keep their customers happy. I love this place.

The food is really good in this very rocker place which is not close to City Center. The problem is that the bus doesnt go that far and theres no metro stations in the area . So, if you want to enjoy this, you have to take a cab or an Uber.

Hard rock and the best burgers what more can you ask? But be ready to wait for 1-2 hours. But the burgers are worth it!

Not far from Chicago downtown. Kuma's corner is an amazing rock-style place. Burgers are enormous but at the same time delicious. My favorite one is the Metallica! You might also enjoy the wide choice of tap beers. You will feel the atmosphere listening to rock music and smelling grilled burger air, while sitting and enjoy your burger with your friends....

After such a strong recommendation, I had to give it a try. I ordered a bacon cheeseburger with BBQ sauce on it and fries. The burger came on a pretzel bun, and it was made to order. It was delicious! I don't know if I would call it the best in the world, but I would call it outstanding! The... More
