This may be one of the hardest categories to make into a list. Burgers are a big part of Chicago’s restaurant scene and there are so many amazing burgers that you have to be more than great to stand out. Despite the vast number of choices, I have nailed down five of the best in the city, even though one of them is a national chain.

1 25 Degrees Chicago

Recently featured on the site a short time ago, this is the premier burger spot in the city. I have honestly never had a juicier burger, it’s a legit contender for best in the world. And if you decide you want something a little more adult to wash down your burger, 25 Degrees has a nice selection of beer, wine, spiked floats and adult milkshakes.
736 North Clark Street Chicago, IL 60654 312-943-9700

2 Kuma's Corner

If you’re looking for some hard-core burger creations, Kuma’s is the place for you. With a heavy metal ambience, it’s one of the most popular burger joints in the city. Be prepared for a little wait at peak hours, but trust me, it’s well worth the wait. And for your side I suggest making your own Mac & Cheese.
2900 West Belmont Chicago, IL 773-604-8769

3 Burger Bar Chicago

The Burger Bar creates some of the biggest and boldest burgers in the city. They pride themselves on being one of a kind with their unique burgers, hand-spun milkshakes and over 100 craft brews. And when you go, don’t forget to ask about their burger of the month.
1578 North Clybourn Chicago, IL 60642 312-2550055

4 Edzo's Burger Shop

This is one of those true to the craft, no-nonsense type of burger places. They use never frozen, USDA choice chuck that they cut and grind every morning in-house. And as an upgrade they also offer locally-raised and/or grassfed beef. And you have to get a side of their fries, which are hand-cut, twice-cooked, Idaho russet potatoes.

5 Five Guys Burgers & Fries

I know, Five Guys is everywhere so it shouldn’t make a list to a specific city. But that just goes to show you how amazing the burgers are. They only have a couple things on their menu because it’s all they need, the burgers are ridiculously good and addictive. And the amount of fresh cut fries you get in a large order can feed a whole family.
