Kuma's Corner

Kuma's Corner is the legendary Chicago burger joint with the infamous two hour wait for a table.  Kuma's Corner has become a culinary destination for burger connoisseurs around the nation.  If you haven't heard of Kuma's Corner, you've been living under a rock.  This place has over 2,000 Yelp reviews, as well as, a plethora of features in the press.  The burgers are thick, juicy, and perfectly cooked and are nestled between a hearty pretzel bun.  20 of the burgers are aptly named after heavy metal bands which fit perfectly with the restaurant's loud atmosphere.  Despite the heavy metal music, risque cartoons, and tatted up servers, Kuma's Corner is a watering hole for all demographics that bond over their love for phenomenal burgers.  Suits, hipsters, and frat boys unite!  If you need some sustenance to hold you over during the long wait, visit Square Bar and Grill right across the street for some beer and sweet potato fries before dinner.

Don't worry about the wait, they're open late!
The Rules of Kuma's Corner.
Great beer selection.
I opted for the root beer on tap.
Stuffed jalapeno poppers.
Cream cheese and chorizo stuffed peppers with jalapeno raspberry jam.
These babies come out piping hot, so be careful when eating them!

The Famous Kuma Burger.
This is a MUST ORDER.  Look how thick the burger is!
No matter how many times eat at Kuma's, I always order the Kuma Burger.
Lair of the Minotaur
Medium-rare burger topped with caramelized onions, pancetta, brie, and bourbon soaked pears.
Unbelievably delish.  Crispy pancetta, creamy brie, and sweet drunken pears?  Party in your friggin' mouth.
Happy eating.
