Had a very good dinner on a Saturday evening in March. We had a short 10-15 minute wait on a busy evening. Our server Sue was excellent!!! She helped us choose what to order was extremely pleasant and professional. Would ask to sit in her section again. The parmesran burger with a side of tater tots was a highlight. The... More

This has been my go-to place for myself and my buddies for when you wanted a really good burger. The Bionic Burger!! Tonight marked the end of my 1/3 century here. It's all different folks. That consistently wonderful Burger, it is no longer! Took my lady to O'Hare to send her off on a trip, and on my way back... More

We're sorry to hear your feelings have changed. The Bionic Burger is definitely a crowd favorite around here, so we're surprised to hear you didn't love yours this time. Can I ask what specifically we could have done to make it just as tasty as the first time you had it? Hope to hear from you soon, Gary, Owner More

The Assembly has been around since I was a small child. I grew up in the neighborhood and it was always a treat to go there for a Bionic Burger. I'll never forget it. Now, 40 years later I take my children there... Well, my kids are grown now. Damn, this review is starting to get a little bit depressing.... More

This place used to have the greatest burger around. The last few visits, our burger was tasteless like it came out of the microwave. We used to love this place, but it lost it's luster. Not worth the time or your money.

Gary T, Owner at Assembly, responded to this review

L, I'm beyond disappointed that you feel our burgers didn't live up to your memories this time around. We still use the same unique recipes and high-quality ingredients, so it sounds like you caught us on an off night. I do hope we get another chance to serve you the burgers you were looking forward to. Thank you, Gary, Owner More

Mom wanted to celebrate her birthday with the best burger in Chicagoland. Everyone ordered a different burger. Bionic was excellent, Blue was excellent, my favorite the garlic parm burger was to die for. It is fresh hand packed about 3/4 of a pound. Cooked in front of you if you eat at the bar or in the kitchen if you... More

A juicy, sumptuous burger. They also serve a delicious skirt steak. Loaded potato skins are indulgent. TVs all around the bar and restaurant. Also offer slot machines for some entertainment after lunch or dinner.

Great portobello grills, reasonably good wings, lovely beer selection (including a Ben and Jerry's cookie dough flavored offering from Belgium Brewing...who'd a thought?!). Service fast and attentive, too.
