Sometimes when you crave beef its not of the Steak variety, but a juicy, perfectly cooked BURGER. KUMA's CORNER succeeds in a city where beef is King! Wrapped in a perfect bun with whatever extra you put on it, this place Rocks! As in METAL Headbanging music. Just a killer awesome Vibe with cool customers and cooler bartenders and waitstaff...

The place was super busy but the service was great! Loud kind of heavy metal bar with great burgers. We had a variety and tasted each other's. All were excellent. Unusual place. Not everyone's cup of tea but for a good burger it was well worth it.

I'm annoyed to see this so high on the list of Chicago restaurant's. It is a personal favorite, and it is busy enough without tourists. Le sigh. You have to get the calamari. So delicious. Top 5 I've ever had.

Best burger in Chicago. Excellent beer and whisky on tap. You can sit at the bar instead of waiting for a table.

Simply the best burgers in town and with a good beer selection, you may need to make a line but its worth it. Try the Kumas burger

So my daughter who lives near Humboldt Park suggested we go here when my wife and I recently visited her in Chicago. She told us they had good burgers and tons of beer choices but there'd be a wait. We arrived around 525pm this past Saturday and sure enough there was an hour wait for our party of 4. The... More

I went with my wife to Kuma's expecting to have a wonderful experience. We thought the hamburgers would be great. I have been postponing to go for one or another reason... even if I live few blocks from the restaurant. The ambiance was great and the music fantastic... I love rock,metal, punk etc... The beers were very good. The burgers... More

Always, always, always make sure I stop at Kumas while in Chicago. The food is excellent, the bar staff couldn't be better and I always meet cool people there. Great jams, great food, great people....

So I was introduced to Kuma's by a friend. If you visit the original store at 2900 W Belmont Ave it can be very off putting. It is very small and it looks like a goth/heavymetal/biker bar. The reality is it is everything. This place has the absolute best burgers you will ever eat. The meat is cooked how you... More
