Kuma's Corner
Photograph: Donna Rickles

The servers here sport more ink than a Bic factory, and the metal is cranked up so loud you can’t hear yourself talking, but therein lies the charm. Squeeze through the ass-to-elbows crowds and up to the long bar, where you might be in for a lengthy wait. What’s the draw? Well, the Slayer burger, for one—a pile of fries topped with a half-pound burger, chili, cherry peppers, andouille, onions and Jack cheese on a pretzel bun. That, and the extensive menu of craft beers, including plenty of limited-edition local brews to get before they’re gone.

Best burgers in the city, period. Loud death metal, R-rated movies, and generally great beers on tap certainly don't hurt, though.

The best burgers I have ever had! And being a metal head it is one of the coolest places to hang out

Metal menu, food is awesome, music should be Lauder @ Shamburg location, suburban pple, stop being pusses and pump up the volume!

The food is phenomenal!!! Not one person that I know that has had Kuma's had anything but praise for them. I also love the atmosphere and the music.

The last time I was able to visit kuma's was in 2012, but I can tell you that I haven't had a burger that was close to as delicious as their burgers since then. I miss kuma's!!

The most creative burgers I've had. The service is down to earth and totally rad. And I can't think of a better atmosphere for the style and flavors of food.

Great food, great atmosphere....and not afraid to hurt someones feelings!

Kuma's was doing what everyone else is doing before everyone else was doing it, and they still do it best.

Kuma's Corner is great. I love the metal, I love the (vegetarian) burgers, but I don't like waiting in line. Luckily, there are places right around the corner to wait before getting a seat. I enjoy sitting at the bar the most.
