Cooling my heels on a frosty downtown Chicago day, I bumped into Epic Burger, started in 2008 and now with eight Chicagoland locations. A straightforward, simplified menu, namely, a burger, a chicken sammie, turkey burger, portobello burger, fries, salad, snakes and fountain drinks, period.
The emphasis is on quality ingredients, humanely raised, hormone free, and their beef supplier is Creekstone Farms of Kansas, which I personally believe now deserves the crown of the best burger supplier in America, bar none.
You can add a choice of three different Wisconsin cheeses, nitrate free bacon, and condiments of your choice. Fresh cut thick fries with sea salt are available solo or in a combo.
Buns are baked fresh daily, the establishment uses real butter, cage free eggs, and the burger produce tastes like you grew it yourself.
The patties are amply-sized, have a nice little char crust and are obviously (note pic) hand-formed.
This is a real winner, as evidenced not only by my smile and warm belly, but by the company’s acceptance leading to its growth. Great burger, great fries, great value.
Try one. Or a double. Daily.
