What more can be said about this incredible burger joint? Well, not much, but I'll die trying anyway!

As many other reviewers have said, this place has some of the finest burgers to ever grace this earth. I've been twice in my time here (had the Motorhead & Iron Maiden...heaven) as well as a few of their brews from the tap (Lagunitas and others).

The heavy metal here is brutal, skull-crushing, and over the top...and I wouldn't have asked it to be a better setting. Atmosphere owns here, hands down...and they play some great metal.

Service is top notch. The people that work here must know how stressful it is to fill seats in such a tiny restaurant where on any given night, the place is gushing out the door with humans. Either way, the staff keeps their cool and they're great in suggesting burgers and/or brews, albeit with some great snarky sarcasm and a bona fide joking nature.

The only two cons? It can be a bit pricey and the wait sucks, but either way...you'll be able to overcome both.

If you're in Chicago (visiting or living), just ask for Belmont & Francisco. Just go there already, it's worth the wait. Really.
