Enjoy Chicago’s take on the classic cheeseburger!
September 18th is National Cheeseburger Day! Whether topped with avocado, fried egg, or Elvis-style with gooey peanut butter, take your cheeseburger experience to the next level. Enjoy Chicago’s take on the classic burger with a bite from any of these locations!
“Cheezborger, cheezborger!” Visit the famous Chicago location that inspired the John Belushi SNL skit, Billy Goat Tavern! The tavern opened in 1934 under the owner William “Goat” Sianis, who later became “Billy Goat” after a goat jumped off a nearby truck and wandered into the tavern, becoming Sainis’ pet and inspiration for the Billy Goat’s namesake. The bar is known for its cheezborger creations, which skip the lettuces and tomatoes and opt for thin 100% beef patties made for stacking. Only a 7 minute walk from AMLI River North or an 8 minute walk from Grand Plaza.
For grass-fed beef and savory burgers, try Grange Hall Burger Bar! The Grange Hall is a perfect place for healthy burger options, such as free-range turkey burgers or wild rice veggie burgers and even vegan chickpea and spinach burgers! For meat lovers, try the berries and brie beef burger or the BBQ picnic beef burger with fried avocado and chipotle BBQ. Only a 7 minute walk from Catalyst Apartment or an 11 minute walk from Presidential Towers.
For a killer cheeseburger classic, stop by the local burger chain M Burger! Their old fashioned cheeseburger will satisfy any traditional lover, or try the signature M burger with bacon, cheese and onion. Check online for their secret menu as well, which features burger creations such as the backyard burger, Dr. betty burger and salad-style burger creations. The East Randolph location is only a 3 minute walk from Marquee at Block 37 or an 8 minute walk from 73 East Lake.
Sip some wine while enjoying your burger at 25 Degrees Chicago. The upscale burger joint features an extensive wine list to pair with their patty selections. Burger creations include lamb burgers with feta cheese and tzatziki, or beef burgers with crispy prosciutto and pesto. Only a 6 minute walk from State & Chestnut.
