  • Katie H.Super slow service upstairs in the Saloon. They never came to take our food order. We waited 40 minutes, drank our drinks and then asked the manager for the check. Good drink but service was horrible.

  • Robert R.So, it's a little further west from Halsted. So, it's a little unassuming. So, if you miss out... well, just don't make that mistake.

  • Allison K.Great burgers and milkshakes

    55555 by Allison K.

  • Kenny U.Grass-fed burgers that are very delicious. If you're not willing to wait at Au Cheval down the street, this is the place to try a burger in the area.

  • @scottkleinbergThe shakes are great. The burgers are big and juicy. And they deliver!

  • Cole C.While I love Grange Hall for their burgers I find the weekend breakfast the absolute peak of what you can find here, specifically the Open-Faced Breakfast Burger.

    55555 by Cole C.

  • @scottkleinbergThe boozy shakes are to die for.

    55555 by @scottkleinberg

  • Susan StittThe burgers are amazing and the pie is great but you have to try the brown butter ice cream. It is one of the most incredible things I have ever tasted!

  • Rohaina H.They live up to their namesake well – awesome burgers. A mean slice of pie with ice cream should be enjoyed, otherwise you're not doing it right.

    55555 by Rohaina H.

  • Manya P.Very good. Food came quickly. Nearly everything is made from scratch. Home made pies, ice cream, BBQ sauce, amongst others. Gluten-free bun available. ALL amazing.

    55555 by Manya P.

  • Time Out ChicagoThis burger joint is not so much a restaurant as it is a piece of theater. With quilts on the walls, Ryan Adams on the iPod and plaid flannel shirts on the servers, it screams farmhouse cute.

    33333 by Time Out Chicago

  • SCOTT DSlooooow and disorganized.

    11111 by SCOTT D

  • e.g. f.The place kind of sucks. Only 5 communal tables and just burgers on the menu, and they still can't figure it out. We are backed up 1 hour on burgers? Really...after waiting an hour for a table. Fail

  • AskMenThose looking for some rib-stickin’ grub can fill up on grass-fed, hormone-free burgers, a scoop of ice cream and a slice of fresh fruit pie.
