    It's legendary, and for good reason. You can't go wrong with any burger, and don't miss out on the Mac & Cheese. Check the tap list for killer craft beer from 3 Floyds, Revolution & others.

    Menu is amazing. Everything named after metal bands. Metal themed place, even the staff looks like they live at a concert permanently. Beer list is extensive. Best burger I've ever had by far.

    Everything is delicious. The veggie burgers are hand made daily. The YOB with smoked Gouda, garlic mayo and add grilled pineapple! Best tunes to gain a happy belly 🤘🏻

    Great burger selection to go with a great beer selection. Go for the original of this is your first time. If you are here in June get the Chicago Dog Burger. There will be a party in your tummy.

    Not only did they name a burger after the greatest band of all-time, its toppings are exactly what I love on a burger (pulled pork, bacon, cheddar, pickles). Order a Led Zeppelin and a grape soda.

    Best burgers in the city served with metal music, excellent beer and no remorse. Band-themed burgers are monstrous and dripping with toppings. If you're really hungry, get some Mac & cheese to share.

    Kuma's crazy BLT sandwich is named after the punk band APMD, which stands for "all pigs must die." And it's quite an accurate name considering this sandwich contains more bacon than anything! Read more

    "The Slayer Burger is a 10oz. patty on a bed of fries, chili, cherry peppers, caramelized onion, andouille sausage, shredded monterrey jack, green onion, and ANGER!" Also, delicious.

    Be prepared for a wait! In the winter, due to a small kitchen and inability to leave the front door open, it does get quite smokey. Get the Kuma's burger and the Jalepeno Poppers.

    Heavy metal burgers! They are massive so be prepared to have your faces melted off! Their burgers of the month are always pretty creative and tasty. Try the Led Zeppelin w/ pulled pork and bacon! \m/

    Great burgers, but do not miss the Mac and cheese this is to order and fresh not good for reheat, sauce breaks. Eat all the Mac and take 1/2 the burger home and eat outta da fridge at midnight!

    Try the healthy route. Burger with no bun and salad as your side. OR dont go the healthy right and have the mac and cheese with bacon and the slayer(medium)....with a few zombie dusts on the side.
