Burger Bar Chicago
Burgers are definitely the name of the game at Burger Bar Chicago. Try our original stackers - like the Wild Bill (bison burger with arugula, goat cheese and tomato chutney on a pretzel bun) and our Firehouse (1/2 lb. patty topped with pepper jack, chorizo relish and guajillo aioli) - as well as alternatives like the amazing Veggie Burger or the Turkey BLT. Of course, the beer list will blow your mind too. With a huge, ever changing craft on draft selection and many more in bottles and cans, come enjoy one of the best microbrew selections in Chicago.
And after your meal? How about a delicious shake like our Chocolate 3-Way or our Banana Nutella, which round out your stay just right. See you soon!
Great atmosphere, hospitality, and food!
Good place; pretty much what I expected: a burger-and-beer kind of place. My only gripe is that our server forgot to get my wife's soft drink (she remembered my beer!) so I went and got it at the bar. Otherwise, no complaints - good food, good atmosphere, good value. We went because they have grass-fed beef (and bison!) and build-your-own burger option - not disappointed at all. Glad we went, and it's definitely on our go-to list for that part of town for the future.
The burger options were insane and I had the sweet potato tater tots. Good prices for beer and food
Excellent food, drinks.
We go to this restaurant almost every time we have theater tickets at stepoenwolf, which is just two blocks away.
We enjoy their burgers, salads and French fries. The food is delicious and the service is very good.
We had amazing service! Super friendly and attentive. Took my son out to eat for his 14th birthday! Best burger I have had in years! Juicy, delicious, flavorful and a great value. Fried pickles a definate suggestion for appetizer. we will be repeat customers.
The flavor of the burgers was very good. The problem with our meal was the temperature of the food. The truffles fries were cold and the burgers just barely warm and after a few bites they were cold also. Our server did bring us a fresh batch of fries that were great and very hot. We ended up not finishing our burgers, taking them home to reheat the next day.
The food was delicious, (especially the chips), and the beer selection was excellent. Especially if you like craft beers.
Brendon I believe was the bartender and he was a great guy..... when we got to our table that is where things took a turn for the worst. Only seen our waiter a few times through the entire experience when you come behind the service with the food way way way overpriced.... Of course I still left a tip but will not be going back to burger bar anytime soon
The food was phenomenal! Service was great also. The music playing very catchy and modern
Burger Bar is great fun. The burgers are great and imaginative with lots of choices. It's loud and every TV is playing a different sport. A bit loud for the older set like us, but we'd go again for the burgers next time we have tickets at Steppenwolf.
We had a very large group (15), so food delay is somewhat expected. It was very cold sitting up front though.
We've eaten here many times. The food is always delicious. We were very disappointed this time to find out that the burgers come with no sides now. You have to pay extra even to have lettuce and tomatoes. You have to pay more for a whole wheat bun. The kicker is the prices on the burgers have remained the same.
Loved the food. Grass fed burger was very tasty and sweet potato fries were amazing. Good variety to choose from but service was pretty slow. Restaurant wasn’t overly crowded and we were in there for about 2 hours
Food was good but service was slow.
Went before a show at iO comedy on New Year's Eve, it was pretty quiet inside which I hadn't seen before! The food is on point and if you are looking for a quality burger definitely go here. They have grass fed and gluten-free buns which I completely appreciate. Sweet potato fries and sweet potato tots are high on the list also!
Great burgers! Sandwiches, salads and appetizers fill out the rest of the menu. It has a nice pub atmosphere. Full service bar and several TV's make it a good spot to watch sports and hang with friends.
overall it was fair. from the service to the ambience to the food, nothing stood out as memorable. there are many better options for burgers around town.
Honestly everything was fantastic. Delicious food, good ambiance, friendly staff, stiff drinks and a decent beer menu.
The food was awesome. Great burgers, cooked exactly the way we ordered them.
Excellent experience. Wish the wine prices were a little lower, maybe $10?
Burger was order medium rare and come out brunt. Mac and cheese was order and came out as a pile of noodles in cheesy water, and stay away from the homemade chip-queso-gauc
Super Fun & Delicious visit to celebrate a teenager's birthday. Our server, James, was spectacular and even helped take pictures as we celebrated with decadent milkshakes, yummy appetizers (Poutine! Fried Pickles! Bacon Waffle Skewers!) and finished with awesome burgers.
The six teens each ordered their own custom burger creation, and the six adults split a Cobb Salad and one burger between two people. Plenty filling and so so so so good. Must try the sweet potato tater tots. And bring cash for the b&w photo booth - $3 exact change.
Can't wait to go back and try a different burger -- the Firehouse was a winner if you like spicy food!
Atmosphere feels and food tastes like a fast food/chain restaurant, while you're paying $16-18 an entree.
The management at Burger Bar is outstanding as well as all the waitstaff. The food is delicious, prepared to each individual's liking and is fresh as can be. Just go there and enjoy!
Just way too unhealthy and very expensive for burgers. I had a salad. Sadly Jewel's Caeser Salad kit trumps it. My husband felt sick the next day. Will not return.
Tasty and creative burgers, thoughtful craft beer selection, cool waiter. Perfect break on a scorching Chicago afternoon
Disappointing experience. We sat in the bar area at a table. Our server after seating us took about 7 more tables in the back room. Took over 35 minutes to get 2 burgers, and we never got a shake that we paid for. She never apologized and acted as if it was our fault. Food tastes wonderful! I’ve waited tables myself for over 25 years and have never had such a disappointing service experience.
I have been in Chicago for around 2months and this is the best meal I have had so far. I was really craving a burger and this place definitely hit the spot. We started off with chips and guac/queso. The chips had an awesome bbq dusting that perfectly complemented the guac and queso. My burger and fries were also perfect. Someone I was with got a salad and it was hearty and filling, nothing foofoo or skimpy.
The salad I ordered had a very spicy dressing that I wasn't expecting and cheese sprinkled in it that I wasn't sure what kind so I opted to not eat it.
I love sitting outside!
Great burgers and shakes! Will definitely come back with my family!
Very nice experience - Good food and was able to hold a business meeting that you didn't have to shout at each other to hear. I really like being able to build your own burger and to have a beer of your choice.
Amazing burgers but just pricey. Pretty good place to grab lunch.
As always, great food. A little bummed to hear they changed there Mug Club program and now it’s an annual 35$ fee. Seems there could have been better notification about this.
Also, seemed they were short handed. Had to wait a few times before I was able to flag down the server to order a beer.
The food as always was great.
Outstanding customer service. Good burgers.
Great burgers. The service was superb. The parking was convenient.
Great burger spot with creative burgers. Our server was great. We went on a Friday night and the vibe/ambiance in there didn’t have the same trendy, crowded vibe, which is a nice break within the city.
Got order wrong (burger undercooked, wrong fries, chicken added to a vegetarian salad, expensive toppings were excluded when asked for burger to be re-cooked. Utensils missing. Super slow service, even for a beer. And bathroom door in men’s room didn’t lock. Have had great experiences here before but this was pretty bad and we were shocked the manager didn’t offer to help. Was unbelievable after so many errors in one order. When I asked for them to do something, they did, but unacceptable that we had to ask. Was a comedy of errors.
