    Great place to eat and drinking

    All I can say there is a war in Chicago for the 🍔 This place is good. Try it.
  • Damon S.
    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.
  • Nicholas P.
    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.

    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 fries (fried in beef fat), shakes or sides, like anchovy-draped Caesar salad, steal the show from the burger. Patties are cooked only “medium plus,” leaving them juiceless and disappointing.
