I’ll admit - I avoided Kumas for a long time. I hate lines. I had also heard bad things from others, and for some reason I listened to it instead of listening to my gut. After all - my boyfriend and I have a track record of taming some of the surliest bartenders (cough ** Toronado). Anyhow. Our friends were in town and had heard a lot about Kumas. We went expecting to wait a long time, but, realistically, the wait was about a 45 minutes on a Saturday afternoon and we got drinks from the bar during the wait. The draft list is small but well thought out. The bottle list is great. The burgers are incredible. The service is stupendous. Absolutely nice people. (Don’t believe the music and - not kidding - the Shining playing on the TV). Lovely people (ha, they probably cringed at that word). Great bar. If you haven’t been here, GO. But go on a weekday afternoon. The negatives of this place are summed up in our experience with a man who ran up to the hostess after our party of 6 was sat. He was insisting that he and his 5 year old son were there before us. Whether he was right or wrong, we were sat at a 6 top, and he only had a party of 2. F*** that guy for not only yelling at a really nice hostess but also yelling at other customers. However, when a place is this famous, crap like this happens. Go when it’s not busy so you can enjoy it. You ratebeerians probably know better, though.

Innovative burgers, whiskey, Three Floyds beer (along with other craft beers on tap)...what more can a person want? If you can look past the heavy metal music and the "grungy" look to the place, you'll find quite possibly THEE #1 place for burgers in Chicago. Whether you're here at the original location or at their new location near the Lake, their burgers are a must try each time you go.

Beer and metal = a match made in hell! and there's no better union than those two. Awesome beer selection. Monthly offerings from FFF are available but go quickly. The burgers are world class. The place is always packed. When you're throwing down a brew and you see the dude that's cooking your burger head banging and grilling at the same time, you know you're in a good place. Bring a friend, the appetizers are great, the burgers are huge and the brew is plentiful. You won't leave hungry, sober, or ready to go to the library cause your ears will be ringing from the awesome tunes you've just been jamming too.
