“Go and eat”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Saw this place on Man V Food, when over on a business trip one evening went here for a burger.
Place was a bit quite for a friday night but it was the classic americana burger place.
The burger was good and the sauces etc you add yourself (great if you like lots of extra's).

“Decent cheezborger”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

Stopped at the Billy Goat Tavern while at the Navy Pier. I enjoyed the cheeseburger and quick service. No fries or onion rings - just chips.

“Saw on the food network and had to try it!”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

After seeing this cheezburger months ago on TV we had to try it while in the windy city. I ordered just a cheezburger and he ordered a dbl cheezburger. His was way better then mine due to double the meat. I would say that this burger is good quality but too much bun for me. The condiments that you add yourself make the burger... stack on the pickles.
