    Truffles are one of the most prized of all umami giving ingredients. It can be found here in the Truffle Burger, which is topped generously with house-made truffle glaze and truffle cheese. Read more

    Great service, excellent quality of the ingredients. Recommend the Greenbird (turkey burger and avocado) and sweet potato fries. Or to keep it simple go for the B.U.B. Very decent craft beer selection

    Sometimes all you need is a good old fashioned burger and this spot provides some delicious ones. Try the Manly Burger if you've got what it takes. Read more

    Different than your typical burger but good. I love the manly! My friend loves the sunny side too. The maple bacon fries are too sweet. I would get without the sugar.

    So delicious, so different, so satisfying! We did the K-bbq, ahi tuna burger, and the throw back! My Oh Henry was awesome. And truffle fries shared. Must try these!

    Truffle fries are delicious! Manly burger is amazing with all the fried onions and beer-cheddar cheese.

    Super good, one of the best burgers ever because it's a different taste, not the typical burger A little bit expensive (14dlrs each) but its worth it.

    This is my favorite burger place in Chicago. Order the fries with the dipping sauce medley, and follow it up with the K-BBQ burger.

    Truffle fries! & they have amazing ice cream sandwiches, I had salted Carmel ice cream in between two snicker doodle cookies.

    Great burgers and fries but misleading on the draft beers which were all 12oz evens basic lager. They should put that on the menu. Really trying to make a profit.

    I may come back, the quality of each ingredient is outstanding but it just does not come together, there must be four balanced flavors before you can achieve the fifth. Umami.

    This place is hot garbage. Burgers are topped with contrasting flavors. Everything is WAY over-salted including the tots and fries. (Just because you add fish sauce to Heinz doesn't make it Umami)

    The service was great, but the food was subpar. I really enjoyed the fries but the burger was soggy and really didn't taste great. I got the original umami burger and expected it to be a lot better.

    Tater tots are very good. I don't like ketchup, generally, but I like it here. Notable!

    Working in industry, I expect good service in return. However, this was not the case. Workers there looked miserable, and was unfriendly. Was clearing my plate wo asking if I was even done. Food meh.

    Place wasn't that great. The burgers were super small for the price you pay. The one I got did not taste any different than a regular burger at any other joint. Maybe I just got the wrong 1 this time

    Definitely one of the most disappointing dining experiences I have had in a while. Service was truly horrible and the burgers and fries were all far below average.

    If you don't get the manly burger, you might not be human. Also- the peanut butter chocolate cookie ice cream sandwich is not to be missed
