Ultimately, this place isn’t about the burgers. It’s more about the shakes—specifically, the off-menu shake-of-the-month, which rotates among addictive flavors like double espresso and hot fudge (and less exciting flavors like caramel-pumpkin). As companions to those shakes, the burgers are perfectly nice. But no burger here can compete with the chicken sandwich, which is topped with a creamy avocado spread and sweet grilled onions.

M Burger is way better than that West Coast burger chain everyone raves about. This Lettuce Entertain You spot is the best fast food burger you can get in Chicago or anywhere, IMO. 

Any of the burgers are tasty. Hurt Burger, Chicago Double, Turkey. Their fries are perfect and they have awesome shakes. Try the Shake of the Month and every month you will have a new favorite shake.

Don't forget to look up the secret menu.

You're kidding, right? This place has the most lackluster burgers I think I've ever had. For all of the hype, I expected a burger on the level of Kuma's, Edzo's or Bad Apple. Instead I got one a tick or two better than Red Robin. Every time I see someone comment positively on the food here, I just have to wonder if they've ever eaten before. Because otherwise, it makes no sense.
