    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

    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.

    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.

    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

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

    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!

    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.

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

    Truly epic! Amazing, delicious, juicy burger and possibly the best fries I've had in a long time!

    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

    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

    Grear chicken burger with horseradish cheese. You can pick your favorite ingredients and have it at your way! Nice quick bite

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

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

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

    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

    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
