    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.

    With this spot being rated #3 burger in Chicago I was definitely expecting more. Very thin patty, twice as much bread. The bacon they put on after they forgot was quite cold & crispy.

    Super good burgers

    For a boost of flavor, each bite of mac and cheese was laced with the unmistakable, but never overpowering, funk of truffle oil. Read more

    The burgers here are excellent. I would highly recommend getting the sweet potato fries with the aioli sauce.

    Good veggie burgers - made with a black bean base. Don't skip out on the fries or onion strings!

    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.

    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

    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

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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!

    I have been here 3 times in a row, 2 times I sent my burger back. Over cooked burgers. too many kids who scream. I don't know if its a burger bar or a high school cafeteria.
