Butcher & The Burger is a BYOB in Lincoln Park, Chicago. It’s a build-your-own-burger restaurant, specializing in local, sustainable, made-in-house ingredients.
Allegro Burgers, Five Guys Style: easy to make and wildly delicious cheeseburgers, built a la Five Guys, but made with Allegro Marinade for a little kick in the pants.
If you’re on the way home from MDW and find yourself hungry, you’ll find a bacon-laden hamburger the Illinois Bar and Grill calls “the best” on 47th Street in Archer Park, Chicago. I suggest you have it with a Blue Moon if you’re a beer drinker, and onion rings. In between the bar and Midway, if you need internet access, seek out Starbucks.
