Because eating good in the neighborhood was a great idea until Applebee's wrecked it one sizzling entree at a time, the group behind South Loop's Burger Point decided to launch in their own 'hood, decking their corner joint with local artwork and putting their fresh-made burger menu on iPads, all the better to whet your...ugh...app-etite.
Hand-packed, grass-fed beef burgers come either DIY or as pre-fab specialties, including the Crunchy (double American, potato chips, French onion spread), the New American Classic (fried egg, avocado, bacon, American, wasabi mayo), and the pepperoni/fresh mozz/marinara Jersey Shore, whose only Situation is impending diabetes.
Poultry also gets into the game with the ground-chicken Buffalo (bleu cheese, celery relish, hot sauce), and the seasonally appropriate Gobbler (Philly cream cheese, cranberry reduction), while wings get tossed in your choice of more than a dozen house sauces, from habanero mustard, to hot garlic, to ultra-spicy 3 Mile Island, though it's the wings themselves that'll lead to your own core meltdown.
And because burgers need fries like white needs rice or whatever, they fresh-cut theirs from sweet or russet potatoes, and they also go well with their daily made veggie and beef chilis, though not Chili's, 'cause that'd just be b-b-b-b-barbeque saauuuuuuce.
