    DMK is a go-to for good reason. Among the memorable hand-cut Russets are those doused in Parmesan and truffle cream. Then again, the sweet potato fries with Tabasco-lemon aioli are pretty good, too. Read more

    It may sound odd, but the #14 salmon burger with ginger and sriracha Asian slaw is the best. We had the #5 bison burger and #4 pepper /egg / bacon burger and both were far from the salmon.

    For something on the lighter side, try the fresh salmon "burger" at DMK Burger Bar. It's made with fresh ginger and scallions, topped with an Asian slaw tossed with a red Thai curry sauce. Read more

    Had the #3 French Dip. Omg! So good! Perfectly cooked medium rare, great meat quality! The fries were nothing special... actually I was a bit disappointed. A great burger deserves 🔝🍟

    Slightly different take on the burger; served on artisan buns, egg option, bread & butter pickles, etc. Unique-ish menu + one of the better burgers in the neighborhood. Get larger size fries for sure.

    Burgers are very, very good. But go after those sides and sauces! We went when they had a monthly special of sweet potato tots with a special aioli sauce that was unreal. Long wait, but worth it.

    The Parmesan fries were amazing, as was the peanut butter shake. We had to sit at the bar to eat, and our waiter/bartender went out of his way to make sure we were properly tended to. High marks.

    The Big DMK Burger is knife-and-fork big, especially with a fried egg, and it makes for a very satisfying dinner with side orders of chili-rubbed onion strings (great house ketchup) and fries. Read more

    A definite go to burger place in Chicago! The #1 is great, with aged cheddar, smoked bacon, charred balsamic red onions and rufus teague's bbq sauce, you can't go wrong!

    Get the Sweet Potato Fries. They have a thin crispy exterior and a sweet interior with a hint of caramel flavor. Served with a lemon-Tabasco aioli - a spicy kick to make things even more interesting Read more

    Good food and great people. The hostess gave us fries on the house because our table took a little longer than expected. On top of the great service, the salmon and veggie burger were delicious.

    They're serious with their mac & cheese so if you're also serious, get the Mac & Cheese #2, it has Gruyere, smoked bacon and charred balsamic red onions!

    The Sweet Tea Revisited. The Rhubarb Delight. This place has some fucking dank cocktails, and the burgers are equally overloaded with awesomeness. It's the 1st place I go to eat when I'm in town.

    Ordered #4; burgers, egg, cheese, chiles. Also the cheddar fries with scallions. Both had amazing flavor. Bottom bun a little soggy but totally enjoyed it. Lettuce may have been the solution.

    Shakes are almost always amazing...take the chance on the featured creation. This month's Birthday Cake shake is legit! Blue cheese and bacon fries are amazing..

    Turkey burger was the best I've ever had and the fries were the icing on the cake. Plus they served Crispin apple cider, one of my favorites!

    Burgers are a bit thin but the quality of the meat is really good. Fries are incredible. Truffle fries are so delicious . Make sure to get the large order!

    Bison burger with deviled eggs? Just another reason why Chicago is home to some of the world's best food. Be sure to try a S'mores shake with your meal!

    An underrated burger bar. I actually like DMK better than Kuma's. Great home-made buns, great fries, good craft beers.

    The #3 is basically a Reuben on a burger (pastrami, gruyere cheese, sauerkraut, and an unbelievable remoulade). If you're into this type of thing, don't hesitate to pull the trigger.

    The #4 is the best thing on the menu. You can't go wrong with deviled eggs either.

    Peanut butter shake, sweet potato fries & the #5 (Bison burger w/ blueberry BBQ sauce on a pita bun) Yum! The deviled eggs are delish too!

    Truffle Fries were addicting. Since eating at DMK, my palate has been craving Truffle Fries everyday. Next time I will get the large order for myself!

    The Holy Guac-aioli Burger is so great we've never ordered anything else. The service is always top-notch, except for tonight. Pretty sure our server is getting ready to quit or had a bad day.

    Chef Michael Komick tops patties of grass-fed beef with everything from pastrami to green chiles, and your preteen vegetarian will tell you he makes the best veggie burger in town.

    Shut the front door and grab one of these burger. I'm headed home from work right now and I'm going to stop in for one. Definitely a top ten burger in the city.

    Yes, the burgers are good. I refuse to go anymore because it is so outrageously loud that you have to yell to be heard by the person sitting next to you. It's a shame, because the fries are great.

    Fries were good, but next time be sure to ask them to hold the salt. They over salt the fries too much. Turkey burger was excellent! Definitely recommend it.
