If you haven’t caught onto it yet, here at PPM we absolutely LOVE burgers. So much so that it’s our goal to taste and review the best burger joints in Chicago. Be it old or new you can count on us to be your official Chicago burger taste testers! So, what’s so great about living in a PPM building? Well, no matter what location you live in - Gold Coast, River North, Lincoln Park, or Lakeview - there is a burger joint just a hop, skip, and a jump from your front door.
This week we ventured out into Lakeview, just a few blocks from our dog-friendly building at 2756 N. Pine Grove and our amazing location at 430 W. Diversey. If you’re familiar with the area, then we bet you know what place we had to try. That’s right, Kuma's Too, the bar and burger joint with the awesome Heavy Metal vibe. Let us tell you, we loved this place from the moment we stepped through the doors. So without further ado, let’s take a peek inside this great Lakeview burger joint.
First up, the Atmosphere
This place has Heavy Metal written all over it. From the music you hear upon entering, to the crazy-cool décor enveloping the seating area, you will definitely rock out as you eat out!
Next up, the Food, and our first burger is the Anthrax
This baby is the spicy eaters delight. All in, it comes with a 10oz beef patty, Ghost pepper, sautéed spinach, hot capicolla, red onion, basil salad, and parmesan cheese. You’ll be sweating and smiling the whole time!
The Led Zeppelin
Much like the band, you can expect many different components that come together to create the perfect burger. Featuring bacon, BBQ pulled pork, cheddar cheese, and pickles, you can’t go wrong with a staple burger such as the Zeppelin.
Combining traditional Middle Eastern food with a true American burger creates the Soul Torture! This burger comes with Tzaziki sauce, a 10oz beef patty, feta cheese, falafel, tomato, cucumber, and onion salad. A massive burger, it goes well with the nice juxtaposition from the beef to the falafel.
So, if you’re living in one of our many Lakeview apartment buildings, or just walking down Diversey Street and in the mood for a burger, then Kuma's Too is your place to be!
