    Great specials. Friendly and comfortable especially compared to the Zooma across the street. Hard to get on their internet, though.

    Kuma's waiting room. ...But actually just as good as endlessly overrated Kuma's. Great burgers, delicious chili, cheap bourbon, and great beers. Rad specials and excellent vegetarian options.

    American dream is fantastic! A great place to catch a Blackhawks game (nachos are great for games) and the range of beer is awesome

    Bar seating was pleasant and comfortable with plenty of space to eat a meal without mashing elbows with your neighbor. I would recommend the Kobe surf and turf burger. Great beer selection!!

    Just eat here instead of Kumas. In all honesty Square Bar is better than Kumas. The wait is shorter, the burgers are as good, and they have Strongbow.

    I don't know what Penny S is talking about. I've been here hundreds of times, TV's aren't obstructed, food is better than Kuma's without the wait, great beer list and reasonable prices!

    Best Burger, the bacon has a great maple flavor. The sweet potatoe fries have a hint of cinnamon. A must have. Service rocks and is quick. Kuma ain't got a prayer, square is way better.

    If Kuma's is too busy, Square is an excellent alternative. The Big Square is a tasty burger and the beer selection is excellent.
