You can get a burger anywhere, but check out one of these spots for a truly excellent patty.
Go for the thin griddled burgers, cheese fries with Merkt's cheddar, and milkshakes.
Monstrous burgers with creative toppings - you can't eat here often, but it's always great fun. I like the Iron Maiden, with avocado, cherry peppers, pepper jack, and chipotle mayo.
Great burgers and beer list. Play shuffleboard in the back room after you eat.
You can't go wrong at any of the M Burger locations downtown - unless you forget to ask what the milkshake flavor of the day is.
Terrific butcher case and sandwiches. Check the shelves for specialty food items you won't find elsewhere in the city.
I am ALWAYS in the mood for Au Cheval. The bologna sandwich is my favorite, but I also love the burger, the fries with mornay sauce, the duck heart hash, the matzo ball soup, the salad...
You must get an order of fries and you must get the BBQ bacon burger.
Go for the fabulous burger, stay for the fabulous cocktails. I also love the brunch and bar snacks.
Burgers for breakfast? Sure - just top a patty with an egg and you're good to go. You can also get an egg, sausage, or bacon sandwich. Plus, get sausages and other meats to go.
I like a classic cheeseburger, and a vanilla shake on the side is a must order (get it with frozen yogurt and feel less guilty).
The brand new spot is just as great as the Evanston original. Cheese fries use Merkt's cheddar and the thinly griddled burgers are exactly what beefy patties should taste like.
The dining room is beautiful and the cocktails are pretty (and tasty) as well. The burger is awesome.
