my roommate and i can probably recite the menu by heart.

#4 roasted hatch green chile, fried farm egg, sonoma jack, smoked bacon

the lowdown:

    • ★★★★★ dmk has my heart. and tummy. and liver.
    • $$ (~$9 burger, $5-10 drink)
    • casual
    • good for groups
    • no reservations, so prepare to wait
    • neighborhood: lakeview


i try and bring everyone here. i try to go once a month, and i could probably recite the menu.

no reservations – so just wait and deal with it. grab a beer and wipe your saliva as you watch other burgers pass you by. i’ve had almost everything on the menu and all is great, but this is why i love DMK:

their buns! toasted so amazingly.
their beef! grassfed and perfect.
their drinks! beer list is great and i am in love with the whirling tiger cocktail.
their fries! sweet potato and parmesan truffle are my faves.
their burgers! i’m a fan of #4 (green chile & egg) and holy guac-aoili (guac + chorizo, i die.)
their non-beef! turkey & lamb are my faves on this part of the menu.

holy guac-aioli burger: chorizo, guacamole, sonoma jack cheese, chipotle aioli, cilantro, onions

parmesan truffle fries

sweet potato fries

sigh, i can’t wait to go back when i’m hankering a burger next…this is hands down the best burger in chicago.

the best part: you don’t feel ‘too full’ after DMK…it’s just. right.

    YESS I AM GOING TONIGHT! #4 FTW! Also, in the future, can we link references to me to a more flattering image, i.e. one where I am not sporting a skirt with neon pink tutu trim. Merci.
