Chicago Cut Steakhouse -- The Verdict
Where the elite meet to eat heated meat. Power lunch spot with a power burger to match. Not a burger for the faint of heart. Huge, almost ridiculous patty, but beautifully cooked and tasty. It may even take two buns to handle (see below.) Great presentation, with “perfect char,” yet delightfully juicy. “You know it is a good burger when you order the wrong temperature, and it’s still awesome.” “Greatest onion rings this side of Vidalia.” Nice array of condiments, supported by “[e]xcellent use of ramekins.” And the service? “Service that’s so attentive it brings liberal guilt to the surface.” The price? It’s a $20 burger at half the price. The burger may be the only bargain on the menu, but why have anything else. What a meal! Low of 84; high of 93; average of 90.
