National Burger Day
August 27th is National Burger Day and to celebrate we are highlighting the best burgers around Chicagoland. We plan on celebrating with a tasty burger that day, and hopefully after reading this post you will too.
1. Au Cheval: Located on Randolph Street in the West Loop, this burger is one of a kind. We suggest getting here early, as this burger joint is small and always crowded. They serve either a single or double cheeseburger that patrons can choose to add an egg or bacon to. We highly suggest that you add both egg and bacon to your burger as these simple ingredients make your burger a heavenly experience.
2. Kuma’s Corner: With a variety of locations around Chicagoland, this is the coolest burger restaurant we have ever been to. This is the perfect spot for heavy metal music lovers as Kuma’s celebrates this music and their favorite artists through the naming of their burgers, the edgy artwork on their walls, and the music that they play. Kuma’s not only has the coolest atmosphere, but also the burgers are topped with ingredients that you won’t find on your average burger, such as brie or bourbon soaked pears.
3. Burger Antics: Located in Brookfield, this burger spot is proud to make all of their food fresh in-house including their ketchup and mustard. With a long list of burgers to choose from, this restaurant also offers more than 160 whiskeys and 16 craft beers to pair with your burger. We highly suggest this place as they view bland food, boring drinks, and poor customer service as enemy #1. Anyplace we can get a delicious tasting burger and craft beer is the perfect place to celebrate National Burger Day.
4. Umami Burger: With locations in the West Loop and Wicker Park, Umami Burger is one of the hippest burger joints in Chicago. From their short rib sliders, to their falafel burger, to the infamous impossible burger this burger chain is a favorite amongst burger critics.
