Hard rock and the best burgers what more can you ask? But be ready to wait for 1-2 hours. But the burgers are worth it!

Not far from Chicago downtown. Kuma's corner is an amazing rock-style place. Burgers are enormous but at the same time delicious. My favorite one is the Metallica! You might also enjoy the wide choice of tap beers. You will feel the atmosphere listening to rock music and smelling grilled burger air, while sitting and enjoy your burger with your friends....

After such a strong recommendation, I had to give it a try. I ordered a bacon cheeseburger with BBQ sauce on it and fries. The burger came on a pretzel bun, and it was made to order. It was delicious! I don't know if I would call it the best in the world, but I would call it outstanding! The... More

Do the meat like a sinner...all fires from deep within cast your fate...go pray with demons of flavor and steady tongues of unmerciful taste buds... Anthems wailing "Divulgence" surround all poor souls who are enslaved by a devil's Beer palooza ...I implore to bloody the Mary...No deadly pit has ever gladly paid more for extra Anger like this...walk softly as...

Best place we found in Avondale. Great selection of beers on tap, including the wonderful local Revolution brews. Also a great choice of fresh hamburgers - very good, although our French fries & chips weren't freshly made. Staff all very goth, very friendly & helpful. Especially good if you're into heavy metal - and loud heavy metal! I tell you,... More

This place knows how to make a great hamburger. It's not necessarily kid friendly because of the music they play and the surrounding environment. That being said, it is a solid food experience and I would go there again for a different burger.

Got into Chicago late and our host recommended this place. Amazing! Excellent beer selection, burgers are all built quite cleverly with different toppings, but the true greatness is the burger itself. Seasoned perfectly and cooked to temp. And as a side note, probably the best hand cut fries we've ever had

This is a fun spot. Whiskey on tap, great beer choices, metal music (which is surprisingly tolerable) and great food. The burgers are very unique, I don't think you can go wrong with any of them. And the Mac n Cheese is so great. You won't be disappointed in the spot.

Read about Kuma's online as THE place to go for a great burger in Chicago. They didn't disappoint. I hadn't read about the atmosphere of the place, but it was very interesting, very heavy metal, and loved the entire theme of the restaurant. I am not a huge heavy metal fan, BUT the music was not overpowering. The service was... More
