M Burger -- The Verdict

M Burger's mere existence is a study in chutzpah. Allow us to submit some evidence: (a) it's a burger joint running out of the same kitchen as TRU, one of Chicago's ritziest culinary destinations; (b) it's a lunch hotspot a stone's throw from Louis Vuitton and Burberry where you can pay with a tenspot and get change back; (c) they provide outdoor seating where you can scarf down your burger, fries and milkshake literally in the shadow of Northwestern Memorial Hospital (b.y.o. Lipitor); and (d) there are several delicious creations that are intentionally left off the menu, which you can only discover through word of mouth. The nerve! The good news is that they back it up with a heck of a burger. We went for doubles all around, and both the M Burger and the Hurt Burger (not on the menu, your choice of spice level: bbq sauce, sliced jalapenos, green chilies or all three) scored very well. Our reviewers universally praised the fresh flavor of the beef and toppings as well as the top notch fries and shakes (the butterscotch shake, also unlisted, is a must). Some were disappointed with the "thin, fluffy bun," but overall the scores were still high enough to just beat out recent favorite Epic. Low of 78, high of 90 (twice!), average score: 84.
