primebar -- The Verdict

Inside one of them mod-ren office buildings in the loop, rests "primebar" (no caps; though one building sign said "Prime Bar"). If you can find your way through the Wacker Drive renovations, you will be greeted by the aromas of charred beef and office workers (okay, mostly beef). The main burger option here comes as as a double; two relatively thin patties; cooked to order, so long as your order is medium or greater. Multiple variations, including bacon, fried egg, and goat cheese combinations. Good music, nice ambiance. Friendly, fast service, as if their clientele has to get back to work. As to the burger itself, "nice, if boring." Well prepared, well executed, and well presented. But disappointingly little flavor to the burger itself. The egg-and-gouda combination worked nicely, but the BBQ, which promised an overload of flavors, erred on the side of bland and, surprisingly, a bit on the dry side. Overall, solid, with room to improve. Low of 65; high of 82; average of 74.
