  • Skip the food and just go for the beers
  • Go on Wednesdays for the 45-day dry-aged blend of Wagyu and prime rib, made for Bad Apple by New York butcher Pat LaFrieda. This is a steak disguised as a burger.
  • Get the Garlic Fries: Skin-on and fried, they get that rich hue of brown, rendering them crispy on the outside and pillowy on the inside, tossed in a perfect amount of fresh minced garlic.
  • Remember to order the burgers with pretzel bread. Yum!
  • Awesome burgers and fantastic beers!
  • The new art and sign are AMAZING
  • Try the beer
  • The burgers are good but the beer selection is amazing.
  • Great beer selection.
  • This is so a hipster bar, I kind of feel uncomfortable
  • The Slow Burn is great.
  • One of my favorite beer restaurants. Get the cheese curds and Elvis Last Supper on a pretzel roll.
  • Get the cheese curds! :)
  • Nice burgers, great beer menu
  • Love, Love, LOVE their rotating beer selection! The burgers are TO DIE for (best I've ever had), but the black & blue burger is too salty for my taste.
  • Try the Metromix's pick for best burgers in Chicago
  • Every dish features some of their wide beer selection somehow...amazing!
  • Ranks up there with Kuma's and Burger Bar. Get the fried cheese curds and poutine if you're ready for a cheese nap later.
  • Pretty much in love with the crazy metal sculptures all over the place... Fun & friendly atmosphere, super unique & flavor-packed cocktails/burgers, bonus points for playing some 90s grunge at dinner.
  • Greenbush Mr. Hyde...not for the novice beer drinker. Dark, complex, and delicious. Wonder what I'll try's the real tip: when you come here, enjoy beer you've never heard of. :)
