Yesterday's Trib Magazine had a piece on the above burger emporium (it's one of two Illinois restaurants listed in a new book on the country's best burger joints -- Billy Goat is the other). We have eaten there many times and the burgers are outstanding. The fries are cooked old style --which is to say that they are fried in lard (no tran fat issue here!). Milkshakes are very good.
It's way out of the way -- 95th Street and Seeley -- in Beverly but for those of you lost on the Southside, well worth the trip.
Did I say that the burgers should be eaten with grilled onions? Did I say don't order burgers with lettuce and tomato? Did I say that the decore is world-class bad, inversely proportional to the food?
Get your food and eat in the car like a good American.
