    18th street burger

    Joe Baez · 4 days ago
  • Global H.

    The BBQ Chicken Salad is huge, the bar is a Blackhawks bar with audio, and they play loud and annoying music on commercials 😟.

    Delicious burgers. And the $5 build your own Bloody Mary deal is hard to beat in Chicago

    Joey Nowak · January 18

    $10 margarita pitchers on Thursdays.

    Jocks and cheerleaders and everything is quite terrible

    Shinji Kuwayama · December 7, 2014
  • Heather S.

    You really can't go wrong with any of the food here. Half price wine bottles, salads, & appetizers on Tuesdays!

    Heather Smith · December 3, 2014
  • Tracy M.

    They ID for food? Seems sketchy.

    Tracy Martorello · September 7, 2014
  • Julia B.

    Best veggie burger in the city!

    Julia Barrott · April 3, 2014

    Don't use touch tunes here. Unless it's Flux or Skrillex they will skip your song. Drop the bro hammer.

    Natalie Gordon · January 11, 2014
  • Oscar G.

    The food was great as well as the service.

    Still have $5 burgers on Monday, but apparently they no longer come with fries. Huge bummer. Still a great burger, just not AS good a deal as it used to be. Can't blame them though.

  • Alex M.

    Burgers are amazing! Get the Merkts cheddar cheese on it, it's the best! Also, if you come in on a Monday, burgers are 5 bucks and all beers are a dollar off. Definitely give this place a visit

    Alex Muench · September 9, 2013
  • George D.

    Try the Cortland!!! One of the best burgers I've ever tasted!!

    George Dozier · July 28, 2013

    Great burgers. Great service. The Ranchero burger has carne asada on top of the patty. Order it.

    Andy Perez · July 25, 2013

    Monday: $5 burger and fries, best value in the city!

    Andy Dreyer · July 16, 2013

    $5 Bloody Mary Sundays are great. Also BBQ Chicken Salad is amazing.

    Holy freakin burger! Best burger I've had in a long time. Monday night trivia and $5 burger special...we shall return!

    Evelyn Feliciano · July 9, 2013
  • Natalie G.

    Don't bother paying to play good music like Phish here, because they reserve the right to skip songs. Cool bros!

    Natalie Gordon · June 4, 2013
  • David G.

    Voted best place in Bucktown by me to eat tasty burgers and watch the Chicago Blackhawks make big plays. The two best items on the menu are the 18th Street burger and Vanilla Bean French Toast.

    Super busy on a Monday night when there's trivia, $5 burgers, and a Bulls game. We had a long wait, but the staff was really great.

    best burgers ever, and the trivia on Monday nights is actually doable, did it alone and got a decent amount right

    Ridiculous burgers. 18th Street is topped with carne asada, Taylor Street is topped with a deep fried Parmesan crusted hard boiled egg. Several different fry choices too. Always impressed by the food!

    The Crab and Roasted Artichoke Dip might be the best thing that I've ever eaten! :)

    Can't go wrong with the Cortland or Taylor street burger. Worth the steep price for one of Chicago's best burger

    Jaclyn Ortiz · January 17, 2012
  • Kate T.

    Every Wednesday (and only one Wednesdays) we serve baby back ribs slow cooked in our homemade Chipotle BBQ sauce with coleslaw and a side of your choosing. They're delish. Come try them.
