The burgers at this South Loop spot, named for its location at the “point” of Archer and State, take ten minutes to prepare, and if you read the menu, you’ll know the restaurant owners are not sorry for it. On that piece of paper, you’ll not only learn that they do not apologize for slow foodbut that the beef is all grass-fed, never frozen and ground fresh daily. But what no one tells you is that the burgers are de facto cooked to medium-well, and that the signature item—the Burger Point Burger with roasted chili peppers—is hot enough to burn your face off. You’ve been warned.

Best burgers and fries!! And prices are great! I love that they are in my neighborhood!

THE BEST Burger & VEGGIE Burger in Chicago by FAR!!! Even non-vegetarians order the homemade vegetarian burger and fall in love!!! Their Fresh Free Range eggs & Brie (substituted on the New American) & Pepper Jack cheeses are a couple of my favorites, among a possible myriad of exceptional options & only add to their stellar hormone free meat quality, as are all their varied genius gourmet sauces, after all who says no to the wasabi sauce! Their named concoctions by type of burger is umami genius! & their crispy spiral fries, sweet potato fries and regular fries are so addictive they do not even need added salt or flavorings that they offer, as they have put thought & choice into every step of the way!!! Have to say for the quality of their burgers & pure tantalizing tastebud orgasmic pleasure, they are a steal!!! They're even worth a Lincoln Park commute/trek during rush hour over & over & over again, as we've been regulars for years & hope to be for decades to come!!! Needless to say this place is dangerous, be forewarned once you come here every burger & veggie burger alike will pale in comparison!!!

Great food. Always fresh ingredients. Staff is above 5 stars. Frequent customer!

The burgers are so flavorful you don't need toppings. I'm not a big burger fan but these were so good in find myself driving the 20+ miles to treat myself. The staff are extremely pleasant, we'll worth a trip

Delicious, fresh burgers made to order. And if you don't like beef, they have killer turkey and chicken burgers and wings!

This is by far, the freshest and tastiest Burger that I've EVER had. The owner is wonderful and the staff is friendly. I love this place!
