    This place has exceptional rotating taps, THE best burgers (and I've had a lot), and a super friendly staff. Go out of your way and try it... You won't be disappointed. Try the bacon Mac n Cheese!!!

    This place undoubtedly makes the best burgers of all time. The pimento cheese is spot on. If your going here for the first time, do yourself a favor, and get the Mr Jones burger. Fantastic.

    Scrumptious platters, delightful and varied wines + a few pretty blocks from Aurora Theatre. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I wish we had one of these in Grant Park!

    The atmosphere is pretty nice. Eating outside on a nice day is a bonus. The Patrick Swayze burger isn't playing around. It will melt your esophagus.

    Fish tacos are soooooo good- also, if you like some spice, get the jerk chicken. Super fresh and just the right amount of spice... Make sure to have some water nearby!

    Absolutely great food! Excellent service. Shrimp and Grits are the best. Only downfall, a few flies. However, don't let that stop you. Food with a twist

    Everything is good. From the 5 dollar appetizer to the 50 dollar surf and turf special. And the beer list is even more impressive than the food.

    So your at Local Republic? Burgers are great, but the specials are almost always a good choice. Also, ask about wine that's not on the list.
