Foursquare Tips

  • Ask for rare at this BYO and chefs actually deliver. For extra flavor, select a sassy spice blend to be mixed into the beef. http://tmoutchi.us/YmTIHi
  • As seen on Travel Channels Food Paradise: Manliest Restaurants 2, order the House Prime Blend which is 100% USDA Prime beef. It's the signature and bestselling burger at Butcher & The Burger.
  • This place is so DIY, we expected to be handed meat grinders.
  • Try the thick-cut fries made from heirloom Kennebec potatoes. They're some of the best in town and seem to benefit from the butchering skills:
  • One of the best burger joints. Seriously.
  • There is a vegan option!!!
  • Butcher & the Burger has a fully operational butcher shop on premise and is all about customization: choose your meat blend, choose your seasonings, choose your bun, choose your toppings.
  • All of the meats, all of the buns, all of the choices. Extremely customizable with so many amazing choices. Love the burgers, but don't miss out on the fries. Oh, and did I mention it's BYOB?
  • Try the beignets, they're great! Fries are good too.
  • Just like everyone else said, get the fries. Freaking unbelievable. If you have never had a fried egg on a burger, do it!
  • Try this customized creation: house-blend beef patty/Chicago steakhouse-seasoned/American cheese-topped/lettuce-tomato-griddled onion/split-top egg bun/Benton's smoked bacon burger. Yum!
  • If you stick to beef, go with Grandmas onion soup rub and flank your burger with an order of the accomplished fries. Add a scoop of the housemade custard, and youll be even happier.
  • Check for specials like Elk and Bison burgers.
  • Mostly organic and locally sourced ingredients populate the menu, allowing patrons to pile on the fois gras, wasabi mayo and guacamole on top of their grass-fed beef patties.
  • DIY burgers start with 6oz fresh-ground patties. Indulge in their smorgasboard of customization options.
  • Butcher & the Burger in Lincoln Park offers a savory mushroom and Swiss burger worth every cent.
  • Thanks to five bun choices, 10-plus patty options, a dozen or so spice blends and 20-plus toppings, the potential burger combinations at this corner shop are dizzying.
  • Hungover? Come on down and wipe the floor with some extra delicious greasy meat and cheese. Pick anything, it don't matter!
  • Gets crowded on weekends and has limited seating, but worth the wait!
  • Good burgers & very friendly staff & it's b.y.o.b.
