KICK is an amazing restaurant. They feature spice-influenced dishes and their ambiance reflects that of a volcano (open flame, ash and lava colors, molten wall) which adds to the overall experience. The food is delicious. You cannot go wrong with anything on their Brunch Menu, and their Dinner Menu also hits the spot. Try a green bloody mary (made with tomatillo) or any of their delicious appetizers to highlight your meal! You can't go wrong at Kick!

They were super flexible with us about making things less spicy. Everyone loved their burgers.

Kick has been a great spot for the family to gather for Sunday Brunch. Waitress is outstanding. We generally beat the crowd in, so difficult to assess noise level. Moderate amount of heat in most dishes, which you would expect with the name Kick. There are items on the menu for those with a "cooler" palate. an enjoyable experience with great food.

The concept of this place was very interesting! I love spicy food and everything in there had a touch of spicy and the food was really tasty.

Everything was spicy! Not overly so, but a fun level of heat. Mahi was amazing, chimichuri steak was great.

Slow (but friendly) service even though the place was almost empty on a Cubs Saturday night around 6pm. Food looked mushy and sloppy as plated. Not impressed.

I'm not a fan of spicy food, but I was able to find a few things on the brunch menu that would work for me. I chose the French Toast Crunch (coated with Cap'n Crunch!) that was just delicious! My boyfriend liked his spicy eggs benedict, and he took home some spicy mac 'n' cheese for later. Definitely a place we'd be glad to return to!

They don't call it "kick" for nothing! If you like spicy food, this is your place. Personally, I prefer some non-spicy food/drink for contrast. Tip: order the regular (not spicy) fries.

The food was ok. Nothing impressive. The service however was slow, even if there weren't that many people. I went there for brunch, I don't think I'm going back for brunch again but I would give it another chance for dinner since they have a very nice outside seating area (we couldn't enjoy it because it was raining).

American cuisine with a little spice (aka kick) to it. Entrees can be modified for those who do not like spicy foods.

Kick is true to its name! Loved the "kicked-up" heat/spice on all of the dishes we had. Loved the combination of flavors. We will definitely return!

We were able to sit outside on a balmy early summer evening. The drink menu was great and our service fabulous. We started with several appetizers. We had the ragin chicken roll which was very good. Just the right amount of spice. We also had the lettuce wraps, I liked the heat. The bacon ,gouda fries were yummy. Our entrees however were disappointing. I had the pork belly blt. There wasn't much meat on it and the bread was soggy. My friend had the hot fried chicken which she felt was just ok. However, the third party of our group had the noodle bowl and really enjoyed it. Our desert was awesome, it was the salted caramel cheesecake with caramelized bananas. Would recommend this place for nice outside dining, but stick to drinks, apps and desert.

Just found this restaurant while looking for a place to go for our weekly date night. I love spicy food so it seemed like the ideal choice. By far the ceviche was the best thing we had. Absolutely delicious and filling! The Burger was also awesome! Not too impressed with the steak wrap or fries. However - we will be back to explore the menu further!

Noise level was so low because no one else was in there! Food was dull; nothing special. Red walls were awful. Bathrooms were right behind seating area - weird. Felt like I was in the old bar, Cherry Red.

Reheated dry biscuits with very, very bland sausage gravy....not what I would consider a good brunch item. Crab cake benedict was mediocre at best. Bloody mary was good. Server was very nice and attentive.

Once we were sat by the host, we waited for 10 minutes for anyone to even acknowledge we were there. The staff kept passing us...and at one point the host and hostess just stared at us unsure as of what to do. It was super awkward. The food WAS really good! I will probably go back, but not because of the service.

Our waiter was very nice, friendly and attentive. I wanted to love this neighborhood spot, I really did, but I really didn't.
The corn fritters were ok, but should have been more substantial so it wasn't greasy crunchy corn. I guess I just don't have it a taste for kick because I had asked if it was spicy and the waiter said the sauce was. It actually wasn't that spicy compared to the fritters.
I asked if the fire fries were very spicy, he said not too spicy, but my friend and I both found them very spicy and even worse, lacking in flavor. Not just missing salt, the spice didn't seem to have flavor other than hot. The pitfire burger was fairly tasty but it was so spicy hard to tell how good the burger itself was. I do like food with a kick, as does my lunch-mate, however, this just seemed very hot. I also had asked the waiter about a few burgers and certainly would have expected a little warning.

Had a nice quiet dinner here with a friend during the week. Service was excellent, the 1/2 off burger special was great, food was decent. The Fire Fries--ha, love the name--were perfectly spicey.
