Chicago is a burger-loving city. From high-end restaurants with killer bar menus to steakhouses and fast-casual standbys, quality burgers can be found in every corner of the city.

Acadia: One of the best burgers in town is at a restaurant where you’d least expect it. Acadia is renowned for its elegant tasting menus and its emphasis on seafood so fresh you’ll feel like you’re shoreside in Maine, but don’t overlook the casual bar menu if you’re hankering for something with less frills and more beef. The South Loop restaurant makes a mean burger, topping their succulent patty with bacon jam, creamy and pungent Taleggio Mornay. The whole thing melts into your mouth with one savorous bite after another. Pair this with one of Acadia’s sensational craft cocktails and you’ve got an evening to remember.

National Burger Month: Chicago @ Tavern On Rush

National Burger Month: Chicago @ Tavern On Rush

Tavern on Rush: Utilizing the same cuts of meat on-hand for steak preparations, Tavern on Rush offers a handful of different burger options, all of them exceptional. These things are big and juicy, but no so much that you need to unhinge your jaw to chew it, which is always nice. The prime steak burger features a blend of short rib, brisket, and chuck, while the rib-eye version comes with caramelized onions, mushroom, fontina, and chipotle mayo. There’s also an Angus burger, along with a vegan option and a housemade turkey burger, which isn’t bad either. Tavern has also been known to add seasonal burger specials to the menu, like bison burgers with Cabernet onions and black cherry jam.

Harry Caray’s Italian Steakhouse: The aptly named “steakhouse burgers” at Harry Caray’s are what you need when your next burger craving hits. The sheer inventive variety is enough to appease a burger fanatic, let alone the incomparable flavor and unique combination of ingredients. The signature “Holy Cow!” burger contains a 10-oz. sirloin patty outfitted with candied bacon, five-year Gouda, lettuce, Harry’s steak sauce, and a brioche bun. Or you can go exotic with the Spicy Thai burger, featuring a grass-fed patty along with pickled carrots, radishes, fresh jalapeno, cilantro, Sriracha mayo, and a brioche bun. The Wagyu burger is great too, since it sort of resembles and tastes like steak au poivre, what with its peppercorn crust, Brandy, Gorgonzola, and watercress, all heaped on a chewy pretzel roll.

National Burger Month: Chicago @ Prime & Provisions

National Burger Month: Chicago @ Prime & Provisions

Prime & Provisions:The modest-sounding burger at Prime & Provisions isn’t messing around. Like everything else on the extravagant menu here, the ingredients are top-notch, the flavors are bracing, and the altogether final product is deeply indulgent. Using the same dry-aged prime beef the steakhouse has on hand for burlier meat preparations, the burger showcases a succulent, thick patty along with sharp Wisconsin cheddar, and Dijonaise, which is always a welcome addition to any burger. It’s served on a fluffy brioche bun, which does a nice job of soaking up all those beefy juices. For supplemental cost, you can add thick-cut bacon and/or a farm egg to gild the lily.
