I never heard of this place until this website. I walked over there today to try it. It's on the east side of State Street, just south of Congress. Decor is very basic with plain tables & chairs and stacks of local free papers. I ordered a single burger & fries and my bill was $8.90 (with tax). They give you a plastic number and you wait. It took a about 3-5 minutes for the order because they make everything fresh. They put the fries in a small, lined brown paper bag. Great fries - hot, somewhat greasey, with some skin still on. The burger was equal to the fries. I went for the white (rather than wheat) bun. The bun was like a bakery shop bun. It was seaoned with sauce (thousand island), lettuce, tomato, pickle, & onions. You can grilled onions at no additional charge. The burger reminded me of an old-time diner burger - YUM! I would guess it to be about a third of a pound. Would I go back? Not on a regular basis because of the price, but when I want a really good burger & fries - YES!

A year after its opening, I decided to go back to the all-organic Epic Burger. A mere two days after that, I decided to go back again, drawn by the juicy, juicy delicious burgers. For 9 dollars you get a huge burger, hand-cut fries, and a fountain drink. The burgers are still amazing, giant, and juicy - no doubt the best burgers for that price I've ever had in Chicago. Definitely spring the extra 2 bucks and get the bacon and cheddar.

Definitely one of the best burgers I have ever had, and I've had In-N-Out before. Awesome hand-cut fries. Very fast service, I think I had my burger five minutes after I ordered. I ordered the Junior burger, but it was much bigger than most chains standard burger. The manager was even clearing tables, and talking to customers. He even refilled my fountain drink.

So we went on an off-hour (four in the after noon) but the service and food was till great - the burgers were several steps above fast food at a good price,. The ingredients are all-natural, and the real magnum opus is the fries - amazing. Really Good. Fries. You get like, two pounds of them in an order, and they taste delicious, just fried enough but not brown - they fry them in i guess what must be peanut or olive oil. (spoiler alert - The owner told us that the Epic Sauce is pretty much mc D's special sauce (aka, thousand island dressing) with some extra garlic and herb flavoring)
