In a city known for pizza and hotdogs, it is important to not overlook the classic hamburger. Chicago is home to some of the best hamburgers in the country, serving all types of hamburger lovers. The city’s favorite hamburger spots everyone can agree on, but what about the new wave of hamburgers that have hit the city?
Arbella: Known for their rib blended Frenchman burger, enjoy a hamburger in their hip, lofty lounge right in the heart of Chicago. Don’t forget to add crispy shallots and béarnaise sauce to the delectable burger!
Bad Hunter: This vegetarian spot may seem like an unusual suspect for a quality burger, but behold the meatless hamburger. It features two black bean patties with cheddar cheese, tomato, onions, lettuce, and a mustard aioli. Even meat eaters can’t stay away!
“Food was amazing – best veggie burger I’ve ever had – definitely up there on the list of best burgers.” – Nilendu G
Baptiste & Bottle: Looking for dinner and a view? Look no further! Baptiste & Bottle is featured on the 20th floor of the Conrad hotel. Be sure to get your hands on chef James Lintelmann’s old fashion burger, stacked with bread and butter pickles, American cheese, and remoulade.
Beacon Tavern: Sitting only blocks away from the tourist attractions on the Mag Mile of Chicago is the famous roadhouse burger. Get your appetite ready with this half pound burger, topped with sharp cheddar, tangy BBQ sauce, and two large onion rings!
“The burger is cooked to medium perfection, with the freshest brioche bun thats nice and shiny. Taleggio cheese, oh my. Instagram worthy.” – Stacy P
Ronero: This Latin American restaurant will have your mouth watering as soon as you walk in the door. Chef Cory Morris bases his hamburgers on a torta Cubana. That means Angus beef topped with chorizo marmalade, shoestring potato, and pepper aioli on a potato roll, served with yucca fries. Yum!
The Loyalist: Relax and unwind in the subterranean bar while enjoying the crowd favorite burger. The patty is a blend of short rib, chuck and ground bacon topped with American cheese, pickles, onions and onion-infused mayo. So satisfying!
