Chicagoland's best burger?

Anthony Fury | Aug 5, 2004 11:15 PM

Hey all, just got pointed here by a good friend - cool site!

My question is (and I think I know the answer already): Where's the best place to get a burger in Chicagoland? I've been to a LOT of Vienna beef (and non-Vienna) vendors in the 23 years I've spent growing up here, I've spent time on the East and West coasts, and I am yet to find a better place than Paradise Pup (Des Plaines, IL).

I read the rules for posting here, and I don't want this to sound like a commercial at all - fortunately for the guys at Pup, they don't need to advertise (and haven't advertised once in 20+ years). There's a line out the door from when they open at 11 am to close at 5 pm. The food speaks for itself......

Anyway, was wondering if anyone else had been to Paradise Pup, and really, I'm just trying to find a place that can unseat (my own) champion, or at least come close, in the burger/dog/sausage dept.
