Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
Last spring, we named the 18 best burgers in Chicago, but since then, dozens of new burgers have emerged. Some restaurants, such as Acadia, have revamped their burgers (and this was even after we named it the best burger in Chicago), while others, like Dusek's and SideDoor, opened with burgers on their menu. But the new burgers aren't all chef-y versions—late-night drunk-food favorite Red Hot Ranch opened a new location on Ashland with a griddled burger dripping with special sauce.
We've eaten dozens of burgers over the past couple months to narrow down the list to our 18 new favorites. From an unexpected burger at a high-end Mexican restaurant to an In-N-Out–style burger at one of our favorite bars, here are the 18 burgers you should be eating now.
