It's so much fun to make your own burger at the Burger Bar Chicago at 1578 North Clybourn Avenue or any of the restaurant's other three locations at 1150 South Michigan, 2954 South Sheffield or 844 West Randolph. Sure, you can order one of eight "stackers" on the menu. The Hot & Smokey, a BBQ beef burger with smoked pulled... More

Four of us stopped in after a show at McCormick Place. The atmosphere is hip, the bar is big and there are plenty of tables for larger groups. We had burgers and the poutine and everything was tasty and the price was reasonable; $50 for two which included a couple of beers. The table next to us had the shakes... More

This place is great for burger eating and beer swilling foodies. It is also great for peops who can't handle gluten and/or meat. The atmosphere was warm and cosy and there was lots of tables to seat plenty of guests. Sport is shown on the screens but if you don't like that, its so easy to avoid them. The menu... More

Went there with my wife, We just picked the place at random because we were hungry, but we were pleasantly surprised. I had the turducken burger (a holdover from the Thanksgiving special) and it was phenomenal. My wife just had their basic cheeseburger and it was also great. Both were among the best burgers I have ever tasted. All teh... More

Went with my wife and daughter. I ordered the grass fed hamburger and hand cut fries. The burger was rare and I had ordered medium rare. The food took a long time to arrive and was pretty cold.

Been here twice. Had a grass fed burger that was awesome! Fried pickles are a must and the Santa Fe salad was also very good.

One of my favorite places for a gluten free burger on a gf bun and gf fries fried in a dedicated fryer... Have gf burgers from chicken, turkey and beef... Think they are all great but my favorite is the chicken burger with avocado on the side! Enjoy!!!

Twelve of us ate at the Burger Bar Chicago, 6 adults and 6 teenagers. For starters, we thought the brat corn dogs, the quesadilla, and the wings were great! The fried dill pickles were overbreaded. The chips and guac were spicy but good. For dinners, we all had burgers except one had the mac and cheese. The half-pound angus burgers... More

Overall this is a casual dining place with a great beer selection. Right across from the Apple Store and the North/Clybourn Red Line Stop makes getting here super easy. As for the food ... the burgers are awesome. They have many to select from but I usually build my own. They have a couple of different types of beef as... More

Burger Bar does their burgers right, which is what you should expect from a place with "burger" in their name. They have a good selection of beers and liquors, and the staff is knowledgeable and friendly. I had the Gyro burger with truffle fries and a chocolate peanut butter shake. The burger was a good cross of burger and lamb/beef... More
