BURGER BAR Chicago - The staple of the Good Eats Group brands and the first Prime Burger Burger restaurant in America. As the name suggests, we feature 100% USDA Prime burgers and craft beer with several fun, contemporary menu items to fill in the gaps. Get started by sipping on their exclusive “1837 Red Ale”. The food is fresh, interesting and delicious. These are hand-crafted unique prime grade burgers using fresh, wholesome, politically-correct proteins such as chicken, turkey, pork, shrimp, tuna and American hormone and antibiotic-free ground beef. Snacks and sides are a significant part of the menu with choices such as fresh-cut truffle fries, sweet potato tots, Bacon Lollipops, grilled Sassy Wings, our famous Fried Pickles and three varieties of incredible mac and cheese. Large chopped salads and hand-spun shakes round out the food experience at Burger Bar. Cool, edgy, fun and inviting, we serve simple but unique familiar foods with an urban twist that anyone can sink their teeth into.
