went at what i thought was an off time (3ish on a friday), and it was still crazy busy. managed to snag a couple barstools for the approximate 1 hour wait for a table. very small place and heavy metal themed. people waiting outside for tables. metal music blares constantly with a decibal level of a club at 2am. very, very loud. decor is dark and appropriate to the theme. tap list on a large chalkboard and also a separate beer list. half dozen or so taps, and a decent if not large bottle selection. no crap beer available excpet PBR for the hipsters. 3Fs and other good stuff available on tap. there were out of some of the listed bottle selections, so i don't know how up to date the beer list is. food is as good as advertised, great burgers with eclectic toppings available. my only complaint about the food was one of my burger ingredients was listed as wild mushrooms but unless i'm crazy they used standard white button mushrooms. big ass (10 oz) burger cooked medium rare as recommended by the stewardess. good, fresh beef is used on a killer pretzel roll bun. proper glassware is used, some of it branded. too bad they don't have imperial/nonic pints as opposed to the shaker pints they use for most beers though. service is very business-like and not too friendly-they want you in and out of there asap so they can turn over the tables. lots of rules regarding the tables in regard to this. don't go with too many people and make sure to avoid the busier times. (1,474 characters)

As a dyed-in-the-wool metalhead, this is pretty much the ultimate beer-and-burger joint. (88 characters)

Stopped here after a Beer Temple trip. Burgers are enormous and they have some cool appetizers. Beer on top is solid, and some good bottles. Not a ton of options, but what they have is good. (193 characters)

Kuma's Corner's burgers are as good as it gets. The service is always great, even when the line is out the door. Beer selection always small yet well thought out. Usually a Three Floyds selection available. Stellar, always bring out of town guests here! (253 characters)

This place is IT. This is a beer drinker's heaven. Walking in is like being teleported to a medieval, heavy metal, evil castle. Weaponry lines the walls, there's skulls, guitars and always really awesome hard rock to death metal music playing. The beer selection here is ridiculously awesome as are the insanely creative, metal band named burgers they offer. The staff is very friendly and is quick to get you seated (there's usually a bit of a long wait, naturally). If you are unsure of what a beer is, or just want to know what's on their rotating handles, just ask, they're more than happy to tell or check it for you. My first experience here was stellar, awesome heavy metal music, a gourmet burger and mac 'n' cheese and a glass of Three Floyd's Cimmerian Sabertooth Berzerker imperial IPA from the tap. If you're in Chicago, you HAVE to visit Kuma's Corner!!!!! (869 characters)
