    Burgers are cooked to a nice medium. Opt for aged cheddar, bacon and egg toppings, and be sure to add the rustic, skin-on fries. Try the Lemon Squeeze, a blend of fro-yo, strawberries and lemonade. Read more

    The food here is amazing, but it takes a while for them to make it because everything is fresh. I especially love the fries, the only thing that would make them better is melted cheddar for dipping.

    Get the Epic (Beef) Burger, with bacon, egg, and Harvardi cheese. Fresher and tastier than any other burger in town. Wash it down with a Peanut Butter Shake, 'cause that's what your doctor would want.

    I have never had a burger this good in my entire lifetime of thirty years. Classic turkey. His name was chet. Home grown and fed right until plump enough to become my meal. Thanks epic.

    I LOVE EPIC BURGER. I always get the junior turkey burger w/cheddar. So good. And the smoothies are fro-yo + skim milk based. The milk and honey one's amazing, and the PB one too!

    Chain doesn’t signify commoditized mass culture when the business in question uses cage-free eggs, slices its own fries and serves crispy patties of humanely raised, hormone- and antibiotic-free meats Read more

    Chicago-based burger chain focusing on natural ingredients. Solid, shake-shack style burgers. Would love to see this chain expand beyond downtown chicago. A treat each time we visit.

    There was nothing epic about my burger at this location! Once the bun top was taken off of my sons burger meat was coming apart (crumbles) for the price you pay I expect "Epic" and tasteful!

    Expect handcrafted burgers & natural ingredients expertly assembled by chef David Friedman’s staff, as well as the initial crowds of beef-starved foodies. Grand opening coming up on June 1. Read more

    I just wanted to add that you can have your egg over-easy or fried. My previous comment about eggs being too done seems to be applicable here and the Rush Street location.

    Slathered on a bun with scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese and thick slices of bacon, the sauce takes what would be a serviceable breakfast sandwich and turns it into a decadent morning essential. Read more

    Pull out your camera and the staff will attack you. So horrible. Absolutely disappointed. Made me feel like an idiot for finding the place neat enough to share. Won't be back. Recommend coworkers skip

    The turkey burger is good and not horribly dry. You can add an egg, but I've found that when I ask for runny, it's still pretty cooked. Maybe opt for cheese or epic sauce instead.

    Holy deliciousness. Awesome organic burgers and greasy fair fries. They also have a flat screen displaying all epic burger tagged tweets in real time - pretty cool.

    Mushroom Portobello burger is delicious! Good option if you're vegetarian...not sure if it's the best vegan option.

    Don't eat at Epic Burger! Plastic packaging came out of my burger and they did nothing about it other than throwing the evidence to garbage! Well done... I am still feeling like throwing up.

    The turkey burger is amazing! The ingredients seem very fresh and the thing tastes awesome. French fries are excellent as well. Highly recommended.

    The small-rancher-procured patties are hormone/antibiotic free, never-frozen, cooked-to-order 100% chuck, and topped with like cage-free organic fried eggs, nitrate-free bacon, Wisconsin cheeses. Read more

    Juicy, crispy-edged patties (available in junior size) and crisp, skin-on fries are reason enough to head to any of Epic's outposts.

    This Epic Burger location was one of the 1st in the city servicing the loop college crowd, but it needs a refresh / remodeling.

    I complained about the nudity in the TV set and the blood and violence. Manager told me there were no kids and that nipples showing on a woman during intercourse was acceptable. #so-upset

    Great free range burgers and yummy fries. However, don't let the brownies on the counter fool you - they are no good.

    Ask for extra Epic Sauce, they usually give it to you in a little cup. It makes the fries so much better

    Although it's not a burger, I highly recommend the chicken sandwich. And opt for Havarti!

    Hamburguesas tipo Gourmet, con ingredientes naturales. No tan baratas. Recomiendo el chicken sandwich 👌
