What Sobelman's lacks in an expansive beer list, they make up for with good beer that goes well with their incredible burgers and low prices.

We headed out here after waiting, fruitlessly, at A.J. Bombers for 45 minutes and parked right outside, walked in, and grabbed the only two open seats at the bar instantly.

I was promptly served my Lakefront Riverwest in a Lakefront pint that was clean. The beer was fresh as was the food, and the service was both quick and very friendly. Behind the small tap selection featuring a few locals but mainly BMC stuff was a shelf in the bar with glassware for each beer. In addition to Riverwest, Spotted Cow (Staghorn also I think) Blue Moon, MGD, and Franziskaner all come to mind.

The place had the vibe of an old diner with random crap all over the place that seemed to have been put up and forgot about. Thankfully the lack of a great appearance shines through in the quality of the food. I got a Sobelman's double bacon cheese burger and devoured it within minutes. While the burger itself was good, the bun was by far the best part. The bacon was sadly next-to non-existent on the burger.

The best part of the whole deal was the fact that a soda, a beer, a burger, and a double bacon cheese burger came to around $17. That's barely more than I payed for two beers at A.J. Bombers and it fed two people.

All in all, Sobelman's isn't a place to head for a beer, it's a place to head for a great burger with a nice session beer on the side. Definitely worth checking out. I'll be back for another burger for sure.
