Formerly known as Leadbelly, BRGRBelly serves up comfort food options with gourmet flair. The burgers, all of which are meant to give you your own lead belly, include patties topped with crab cakes and slathered in béarnaise sauce, and the menu is rounded out with fries topped with pork belly and 40+ craft beers.
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.
M Burger is a fast-casual burger mainstay from restaurant group behemoth Lettuce Entertain You. In any of its numerous locations across the state of Illinois, you can (and should) indulge in the Old Fashioned Cheeseburger -- lettuce, pickle, onion, tomato, secret sauce -- or the M Burger -- same, but plus bacon, minus tomato. Make it a double, you’re in the Midwest, after all. Get the crispy chicken sandwich or turkey burger if red meat isn’t your thing, but no matter what you order, get a side of fries and a signature shake (for sipping and for dipping your fries). Thank us later.
Buzz Bar's a Chicago burger temple with patties sandwiched between traditional buns, ramen buns, donut buns... you name it, they've got it! They're also slinging a bunch of unique burger toppings, like beef stroganoff with actual egg noodles.
On The Bun is doling out awesome waffle burgers, pumpkin milkshakes, and sweet encased meats year-round.
This is the only time you'll hear "Come see what's between our buns," and not be freaked out. Rockit Burger Bar offers some badass burgers, including gems like the huevos rancheros burger and a chicken breast patty aptly named "The Motherclucker." If you're craycray and burgers aren't your thing, flatbreads and small bites are also served.
Devil Dawgs is a Chicago hot dog and snack stand that's got some awesome sandwiches and chars.
BopNgrill is, in short, a Korean-American fast-food joint. The menu is split between plates (chicken katsu and marinated beef bulkogi) and burgers, like the umami-loaded Duxelle burger with sundried tomato confit, mayo, bacon, and smoked gouda. Trust us: BopNgrill's fusion creations will convert you to the kimchi-and-barbecue-based ways of Korean cuisine.
The Bad Apple is a comfortable neighborhood tavern with a full menu of stacked burgers, sandwiches, and bar-appropriate snacks like fried cheese curds and poutine. The beer menu features a helluva -- almost 200 -- options of domestic and international craft beers.
