I have been here a few times and Iím never disappointed. Burgers are awesome, metal is always rockin and the beer is always cold. Just be prepared to wait, and wait, and then wait some more.

Usually a long wait, but well worth it. Always something good on-tap, for the most part. The burgers are simply outstanding the the service has always been top-notch. A winner in my book!

Arrived here 20 minutes before it opened and we were still about 30th in line. Luckily they let us before open and we grabbed a spot at the bar. Inside is typical bar decor, a small seating section and kitchen, but a nice long bar with plenty of seating. Heavy metal blares in the background and they are not about to turn on the tv, not even for the Bears playoff game vs. Seattle. I like the look and feel. All the servers and bartenders seem to fit with this place. Clientele also fits, definitely a local hipster crowd. The beer selection is decent, not overly exciting. They had about 8 taps, then probably 30 bottles. On draft they did have Gumballhead and Alpha King, but the rest of the stuff was mid tier easy to find craft (DFH, Lagunitas, etc). The main attraction of this place is its food. About 15 sandwich topping combinations that you can have with a burger, chicken breast or chicken tenders. The comboís are awesome, unique, mouth watering, and it reminds me of Jerryís Sandwiches, but for burgers. The tenders are only so-so, so get a burger or chicken breast. Waffle fries are awesome. If I loved burgers and heavy metal this would probably be my favorite place to eat in the whole world. Beer is more of an afterthought here, while certainly a good selection for a restaurant, not a place I would come to just get a drink. Come here early and get a great meal, I will certainly be coming back.

The only restaurant Iíve ever found that plays heavy metal! The burgers were phenomenal (I recommend the "Judas Priest" burger) and the staff was super. Beer selection was not huge but very good.

This is more of a place to go to for the burgers than for the beer but itís cool. Beer taps are good and fresh and seem focused on American and esp. Midwestern Micros. It has gotten so much press itís constantly crowded and the heavy metal is blaring. There is a beer garden in back which is nice. Prices are in line w/ the rest of the city for both food and drinks. This is a place to go for a nice beer and some grub. It is not a tickerís paradise.

insane famous burgers + alpha king and surly darkness on tap + loads of regional/local bottled micros (dark horse stouts) make this an amazingly place to eat and drink. blaring heavy metal and a super crowded scene. love it. check out the burger pics on their website or on flickr.

8 out of 10 Kumaís burgers Iíve had have been the best burger Iíve ever had in my life. The other two were only awesome. Beer selection is adequate with several good choices. Options donít change often, and at least half the time theyíre out of my first choice. Focus is on North American breweries. Staff doesnít seem to know the beer well, but the focus is not the beer here. The focus here is metal, pretty girls, and the best burgers in the world. Expect a wait. Even is itís 10 PM. on Sunday.

Great burgers. I always have a very difficult time deciding what to get. Iíve always had a great time here. Nice outdoor patio. Music is a nice change of pace. If you want a burger, go here.

Everyone needs to go here. My wife and I usually go here 15 minutes before they open on a Saturday to make sure we can get a table...because the wait here can be terrible at times. Usually a very good beer selection on draft. You go here for the burgers though...best burger in Chicago in my opinion. The beer garden adds a lot of room, so if the weather or season isnít great it will be crowded and loud inside. I love this place though. The make your own Mac and Cheese is fantastic and burgers...yeah.

Kumaís is a gourmet burger, biker bar that has a nice selection of craft beers. Staff is very helpful and knows their beer. Burgers are the best you will find in the city. Taps change more quickly than the menu, so make sure to ask whatís available. Also, itís very loud inside, so if youíre w/ your parents or children, opt to sit outside.
