Uncle Alton here. When I am not helping people find the perfect JanSport Big Student Backpack for them or their children (like the JanSport Half Pint Backpack – made especially for smaller backs), I like to travel and eat.
Preferably both at the same time.
One of my very favorite places to do both is Chicago.
Here is a short report about 3 killer burgers I discovered on a recent trip.
If you like you hamburgers unpretentious and your hamburger joint to be, well, joints – then I have some suggestions for you.
Chicago is jam-packed full of great burger joints. On every street corner and every turn you can find a delicious hamburger or cheeseburger. From roadside stands to bars and lounges to the fanciest of restaurants, Chicago is a burger kind of town.
But there are a select few — even in Chicago — that stand above the crowd.
On your next visit to Chicago, be sure to try at least one of these killer hamburgers.
You’ll be so glad you did.
1. The Roe Burger at Flub a Dub Chub’s Hot Dog Emporium
Sure it’s a hot dog place – and Chicago is known far and wide for there Chicago Dogs – but don’t miss the Roe Burger.
It 1/2 pound of charcoal-grille dbeef on a pretzel roll. Dressed with crisp bacon, sharp Cheddar cheese and creamy avacado it’s a winner.
This family-owed “joint” is at 3021 N. Broadway and the Roe Burger will set you back $7.50
2. The Hamburger at Nightwood
The chefs at Nightwood get a regular order every 3 weeks like clockwork: 1/2 a cow. They process the meat on site and the shoulder gets ground up for their signature burgers.
The tender beef is seasoned with Worchestershire sauce then grilled over and open wood fire. It’s served with a house-made spicy mustard and a beer and cheddar cheese combo on a chewy ciabatta roll.
nightwood can be found at 2119 S Halsted and the Hamburger is $13
3. Grilled Cheeseburger at Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak and Stone Crab
I’m surprised that Joe hasn’t added the Grilled Cheeseburger to his name yet. Considering how utterly delicious it is – and the fact that just about everything else he serves is already there – I expect to see it any day now.
How good is the double-thick cheeseburger? It’s served naked – with nothing else on the bun. No condiments. No dressings. And you know what? That’s fine with me.
Of course, you can add the usual suspects – bacon, sauteed onions – at no charge, but give the burger a try first. You may not miss them at all.
Joe’s Etc. is at 60 W. Grand Ave. and the Grilled Cheeseburger runs $10.50 fully undressed.
