Guide To The Best Burgers in Chicago

"In a city burgeoning with hot dogs, steak, pizza, and Italian beef, it’s still important not to overlook the meaty virtues of a great burger. We’ve mowed down many a meat patty to find the top burgers in Chicago. From a prime beef creation decked in fixings that'll satisfy even the most devout Francophiles to a wagyu number stacked with pork belly and cajun-spiced onion strings, here are the most unapologetically hunger-slaying local burgers.

Kuma's Too

The burgers at this heavy metal meat emporium, just like the tunes it blasts, are not for the faint of heart and a proper sacrifice to the Dark Lord involves devouring a Neurosis. It's stacked with horseradish mayo, sharp cheddar, Swiss, caramelized onions, sautéed mushrooms, lettuce, tomato, and raw onion, so each bite is a welcoming flavor assault.


Nothing pairs better with a heady glass (or flight) of craft brews than a burger, and at this local brewpub, said burger happens to be a knockout custom-blend patty with ancho chile-tomato jam, arugula, pickled sweet onions, and a velvety blanket of raw milk cheddar."
